The Howler

Newsletter of the Wolf Gang Advisory - Volume 1, Issue 4


Here is one amazing list: an evolving crime scene, a rebuilt Mustang, pregame ball handling workouts, rifle team equipment, music, personality tests, unique graphic designs, and interesting stories about large animals. What do they all have in common? They are just a sample of the pure awesomeness of the Wolf Gang. I could not be more proud of the Wolf Gang and their individual exhibitions. Students shared their passions, talents, and uniqueness like I have never witnessed within a classroom. It was amazing!

We will host our pot-luck lunch on the Friday that we return from fall break. School lunch will be served from 11-11:25, then we will return to The Den and build community as we share some amazing family meals. Feel free to bring in any dish that you wish - I won't stop you. I will ask the Wolf Gang members to sign-up for food/utensils during Advisory on Oct. 24th. Talk to your Wolf Gang member over fall break to give them ideas/options for the sign-up.
