1.Transportation Update – Most of you have probably heard that due to shortages of bus drivers and funding, there is a proposal that our bussing moves to three tiers. This means schools would start at either 7:30, 8:30 or 9:30. At this time, K-8s have been put in the third tier, meaning our schedule would be 9:30 – 4:00. There are a couple of you who like this, but for most, this is less than ideal. If this truly is the final outcome, we will be discussing ways we can best support families.

2.Wolf Pack Spotlight – We are launching the Wolf Pack Spotlight. This is a new way we can connect and spotlight members of our community. Students and their family create short videos (1-3 mins. max) sharing something that is important to them (traditions, food, games, holidays, family stories, etc.). A few students video clips will be combined to create a video that will be shared in class and with our community. This will help us learn about and celebrate our school community. We aim to create these each month during the school year. Please email wolfpackspotlight@gmail.com with any questions.

3.Summer Bridge Program – The UW Women’s Center to help plan our annual Summer Bridge Program Rising 9th and 10th grade. This program is a part of our high school college-readiness program, Making Connections, and runs for two weeks in July to help introduce rising 9th/10th graders to various career paths and aid them in developing academic and professional skills.

This year, the program will be held from July 11th – July 15th & July 18th – July 22nd from 11 am to 2 pm. As of now, we are planning a hybrid format with both online and in-person activities. These activities will provide students with the opportunity to explore different career opportunities by hearing and learning from real industry workers. In past years, we have visited offices such as Facebook, Google, Sound Transit, and Miller Hull Architecture. Our program has a particular focus on STEM paths but is open to all interested and curious students.

6.Arriving at School – We have noticed that families are arriving on foot and by car later each morning. This causes traffic back-up and delay. Arriving earlier (before 8:50) is much appreciated!
