Wildcat Press Summer Edition
Dear Worthington Families,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! There is so much excitement around the start of a new school year! It’s hard to believe the 2018-2019 school year is less than a month away! As the proud administrators of Worthington ES, we are looking forward to an exceptional school year! We welcome and value your positive energy and support in making this the best school year possible!
At this time of the summer, all signs point to another productive and amazing school year at Worthington. Our devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your children. Our dedicated office staff has been busy welcoming new families, making preparations for our RECC/Prek program and supporting all preparations for each classroom. Our hardworking, conscientious custodial staff have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning our school as well as preparing for the addition of our RECC/PreK program. Our fabulous PTA has been gearing up to offer many other exciting events throughout the year. We are totally committed to a positive school community who shares common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting academic growth and excellence.
As we are getting ready for the new school year, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Family File opened TODAY, Monday, August 6th for parents to update information about their child/children for the 18-19 school year. It is time to update your child’s emergency contact information in HCPSS Connect! This is the most important step for all families to complete to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year!
Reminder: Family File needs to be updated EVERY school year.
Families that update and complete their Family File will be able to view teacher placements on August 29th beginning at 9am. THIS IS NEW FOR WORTHINGTON THIS YEAR!
HCPSS uses Family File for parents/guardians to complete emergency information. Parents/guardians must verify and/or update information for each child, and can do so by logging in to HCPSS Connect
Parents new to the Howard County Public School System will receive a welcome email with instructions to activate an account. These welcome emails are expected to begin today.

Thank you for assuring that we have all of the information we need about your child/children prior to the first day of school.
We look forward to seeing you all at our August “Sneak a Peek” sessions and our September Back to School events. Thank you to all who have helped in preparing for our new school year. Your commitment to our WoES school community is awesome. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your administrators. Together, we know this school year will be a shared success of growth and achievement for all of our students.
