Wake Ed partnership and the WAKE Up and Read Collaborative

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Mrs. Pierre at tpierrie@wakeedpartnership.org. We are now registering groups to assist in sorting event. We have two major sorting events scheduled: March 7 and March 21. A sign-up genius on the WAKE Up and Read website identifies available times for volunteers. We are also open to scheduling sorting events for special groups if there is interest and the group is between 10-20 people. Our collection center at Cary Towne Center is a great location for volunteers to assist us. Given the age of these volunteers, they will need to complete the waiver form that may be found on our website as well. http://wakeupandread.org/ Students must have adult supervision when they volunteer; including school personnel or an approved volunteer if they come with a school group or with their parent if they come as individuals.

How do night classes help Sanderson?
Sanderson High School depends on the revenue created by housing these Adult Evening Classes here. 
In the 2013-14 school year, we received almost $14,000.00 to help our school's budget.  We need to keep these classes going to keep Adult Evening Classes here at Sanderson. We need to do all that we can to help our students and this money goes a long way to help!

Please consider taking one of our night classes.

AP Exam Registration Extended through March 8, 2015
click to expand

Important Note: We've learned that in addition to bringing in the confirmation page, you also must bring in a signed copy of the "SHS AP Policies and Procedures" form.  Attached is a copy of it.  You can also download it from AP Registration site.  After you log in, go to "additional documents" to find the form.

STEP 1: Stop by Student Services and pick up your 2014-15 AP Bulletin for Students and Parents.

STEP 2: You must register  and schedule online for your exams

Students will be registering for AP exams online using Total Registration. This can be done from any computer with an internet connection.  To register for AP Exams, please visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/343213. Be sure to answer all questions.

When filling out the form, select all your exams you will be taking and the appropriate teachers. You will not be able to come back and edit this registration at a later date.

When you reach the confirmation page print two copies - one for your records and the other to return to Student Services by the end of day on Monday, March 2, 2105.

STEP 3: Fees for the AP Exams

This year, the Department of Public Instruction will be paying the AP exam fees for all students who wish to take the AP Exam.  Only students who are in the AP course may have their AP exams paid for by the state. 

Please know if you register for an exam and then you do not take the exam, you will be charged a $15 no show fee. This fee is charged by Collegeboard and neither the state, nor SHS will pay this fee for you. Additionally, please be sure you check your calendar and only register for exams that you know you can take. If you decide you have to take a late exam, you will have to pay a $45 late testing fee. Again, this is a fee charged by Collegeboard that you will be responsible for if you choose not to test on the date for which you have registered.

Important Dates:  Registration begins on February 16 and ends March 8. There is no late registration!     

Your confirmation page must be returned to Mrs. Carpino in Sanderson School Student Services Department by the end of the day on March 8, 2015.

If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Carpino at lcarpino@wcpss.net.

To be eligible for a volunteer service award, students must record their volunteer hours in 2 locations:

  1) Set up an account and enter/track their hours on the PVSA website http://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov.  Once the student account is set up, the student MUST go to the "Profile" tab and entere Sanderson's Record of Service key, which is CO-JCV-9826W or the hours will not be reported for credit towards the award.  This is required for all service awards, regardless of level or type.

  2) Hours must be recorded on a "Record of Service Form" with supervisor signatures verifying the number of volunteer hours.  The forms are turned in at the front desk in the main office.  You can access the Record of Service forms on the Academic Booster Club site on the SHS website and on the forms page of the Student Services tab on the SHS website.  In these areas of the SHS website, you can also access an information form which sets forth the hour thresholds for each of the awards and step-by-step instructions.

DEADLINE for setting up the account, logging in hours and turning in the completed Record of Service forms is April 15, 2015.

How do night classes help Sanderson?
Sanderson High School depends on the revenue created by housing these Adult Evening Classes here. 
In the 2013-14 school year, we received almost $14,000.00 to help our school's budget.  We need to keep these classes going to keep Adult Evening Classes here at Sanderson. We need to do all that we can to help our students and this money goes a long way to help!
