2019-2020 Registration for New & Returning Students
Online registration for ALL students is open! Registration for all Fort Worth ISD students can be completed by visiting www.fwisd.org/register. Online registration is for all students –both new and returning – and is a “must do” in order to be enrolled in the Fort Worth ISD.

The process for returning students is fast and should take from five to ten minutes. Using your student’s individual Snapcode, simply go to www.fwisd.org/register and confirm the information you’ve previously supplied or update any new information.

Your child's snapcode is located at the bottom of their report card mailed home in June. Parents of incoming 1st graders, their snap code was included in a letter mailed home in July. If you can't find this document, you can log onto the FWISD Parent Portal to find it.

Helpful hints to make the registration go faster:

✔️Have the contact info for all your emergency contacts, doctors, and preferred hospital available

✔️Have your health insurance info available

✔️Have each child’s immunization records, your proof of address (only specific bills with specific info are accepted), & a copy of your government issued ID ready to be uploaded

Right now there’s unfortunately no option to copy info from one child to the other. So it’s necessary to retype all the emergency contact info, health insurance info, etc for each kid. It would be great if there was a button to allow you copy the information from the first sibling for each question - perhaps next year!

Please contact the school in August with any concerns. The school will be closed in July.

First Day of School & New Hours
The first day of school is Monday, August 19, 2019. The school day will be extended by 5 minutes beginning in 2019-2020. The new Pre-K hours will be 7:50 am - 2:15 pm. The new K-5 hours will be 7:50 am - 3:05 pm.

Playground Update
EXCITING UPDATE! As of Thursday, March 28, 2019, FWISD has approved our request to install the new playground equipment and provide the border and fall zone material!! This means all of the money raised can go to purchasing playground equipment! The playground vendor revisited Waverly Park on Friday, April 5, 2019 to take updated measurements and has provided two design plans which the PTA has submitted to FWISD. As of May 10, 2019, the playground location has been approved and we're just waiting on revised playground design plans.
***********************************
With your help, WE DID IT! The Waverly Park PTA was able to raise $25,687.52 towards a new playground over the past 2 years. As has been discussed during recent PTA General meetings, we are anxious to get the playground installed but are currently delayed due to coordinating with FWISD. 

There are two reasons for the delay:

1) We are working to maximize our funds for the playground (which are off-budget and not allowed to be touched for other PTA activities). There are two major areas where we can increase the amount of  playground equipment we're able to purchase if FWISD is able to help us out. One is the wood frames that go around the playground and the material that the students will run/walk on. The second is the installation. We've been diligently trying to contact the appropriate FWISD staff to resolve this issue but they are busy with bond implementation projects. If we are unable to get their assistance, we will move forward by paying for all items (although this, unfortunately, will result in less playground equipment).  

2) We recently learned that we have to have FWISD approval as to the location of the new playground. We have been in continued contact with the appropiate FWISD staff and Mr. Baeta is also working with us to help get this process moving forward. It is our hope that while they are approving the playground location, they can give us an answer as to whether or not they'll assist with purchase/installation.

It was our sincere hope that the playground would have been installed by now and we apologize for the delays. However, they are out of our control and we are doing our best to get the best possible outcome for our students. We truly appreciate your patience.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us.

Construction Information/Cafetorium Update
TAKE NOTE: Construction on the new cafetorium began on Monday, March 11, 2019. The auditorium and kitchen will be out of commission for the rest of the school year. Please be aware that for the safety of all students drop-off and dismissal procedures have changed for the rest of the school year and access to the building is limited. Parents are asked to drop their child(ren) off at either the main or library entrance and they will be taken to class by a staff member. Also be aware that breakfast and lunch options will also change during construction. Please see the letter from Mr. Baeta below for more details and contact the school with any questions.

  

     

Waverly Park is benefitting from this $1.8 million dollar project thanks to two approved FWISD bonds. Click here for more information on both propositions.

Back the Future - Join PTA!

             

Our goal as a PTA is to advocate, engage, and empower our students, teachers, staff, parents, and community to work together for the benefit of the students and community as a whole.

Last year, our PTA had a recordsetting 338 members. Let's keep the momentum going; more members means a bigger VOICE! Our goal is to have one voice for every child. So far for 2018-2019, we have 369 members! We've set a new record!

It's easy for parents, grandparents, family members, and community members to join and help make our GREAT school EVEN GREATER! Every member counts. Click here to learn more about why it's important to join PTA and all the things PTA has done for the students, teachers, school, and community

Volunteer!

The PTA is responsible for many events throughout the school year but none would be possible without volunteers. While volunteering is certainly not a requirement of PTA membership, members are welcome and encouraged to volunteer.  We have involvement opportunities for all schedules, availability, and interests. Click here for more information about volunteering.

It is our goal to enable all parents to make their child super proud by helping with a PTA activity at school.  
 There are several ways to become involved--some during school hours and some on your own time schedule.  If everyone does #justonething, we will make a BIG IMPACT! 

Visit the PTA Central page to find out more about how YOU can get involved! This page provides PTA meeting dates, information on how to join the PTA, how to volunteer (signing up, background check, etc.), current PTA Officers & Committee Chairmen, and other PTA resources.

We greatly appreciate everyone who puts in time and effort to help keep Waverly Park a great place to send our children.  In order to ensure the safety of all the children, all volunteers must set up a VOLY account, which includes a brief application and background check (must be done annually) (as per FWISD standards).  Click here to find out more about this process. It is done online and only takes ~5-10 minutes to complete.
