What’s New!

  1. K-2 Families – Please return all K-2 Ipads by May 6th to your students’ classroom teachers.
  2. BSA Scouting – Did you know that BSA Scouting isn’t just for boys? Where can girls (and other non-boys) go if they want to backpack 50 miles, learn to treat a broken leg, survive overnight in the wilderness, train to safely shoot a shotgun, and sleep in a snow cave they built themselves? Or make new friends while becoming leaders among their friends and community? Or even earn the rank of Eagle Scout? Troop 681, that’s where!
    Troop 681 is an inclusive Scouts BSA (formerly Boy Scouts of America) troop located in North Seattle and is currently looking for new members. 6th graders and up are welcome to come check us out. www.troop681.org
  3. Changing Start Times Survey – We know the recent news about a potential shift to a 9:30 AM start time with the news announced by the district may be challenging and/or beneficial to our families.

Reminders

  1. 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.
