FRI-YAY for you! A huge thank you to all the families for supplying your homeroom classroom with necessary supplies. A portion of those supplies get redistributed to other classrooms. The school counselor needs tissues for extra tears. The intervention team is able to create flash cards and games with the notecards. The colored pencils and watercolors are perfect for art class. The variety of collected wipes get used for painted hands, smudged glasses and grimy chrome book screens. There are many books that utilize these items.

Yay for the First Friday Dress Down Day at the main campus. The CAPTO hosts 20 days a year that students can wear their favorite fashion (within student handbook guidelines). The money goes towards reduced field trip transportation costs, spoiling the teachers with surprises and the end of the year Field Day. 🐺 The CA Annex will begin Dress Down Days at a later time.

Tuesdays are a time for The Wolf Pack to pause and think. Sometimes the day will bring resources in our community or activities you can do with your family. Today it’s about being together as a team. Our middle school wolves are headed into their fall seasons to learn about how to win or lose with dignity, how to encourage each other to be stronger and how to set and achieve goals. Best of luck to our student athletes during tryouts!
