Wake County Public School System is scheduled to host a mini magnet fair for rising kindergartners and their families
With the road conditions, it's worth checking back later Monday to make sure that it's scheduled as planned, but the event is set for 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., Tuesday (now Thursday, Jan. 12), at Green Magnet Elementary School on Six Forks Road.
During the event, participants can talk to current parents and staff at some of Wake's magnet schools. Representatives from the following schools are scheduled to be at the event: Brentwood, Brooks, Combs, Conn, Douglas, Fox Road, Green, Hodge, Hunter, Jeffreys Grove, Joyner, Kingswood, Millbrook, Partnership, Poe, Powell, Stough, Underwood, Wendell, Wiley and Zebulon.
For families new to the system, this is a great opportunity to learn more about your many options in the county.
The online magnet school application process begins this week, Jan. 12, and runs through Jan. 31. Rising kindergartners must be registered at their base school before parents can fill out the online magnet application.
