Hello Wolf Pack Families,

So many opportunities to be a part of the fun at Selkirk this week: the Winter Ball, spirit days, the door decorating contest, our assembly lead by leadership students, staff versus our High-5 volleyball winners (students,) and the activity time this afternoon.

We enjoyed the energy, and hope students built last memories with friends.

Student Drop-off/Pick Up Location

In the week after break, we will be looking to shift the location for parents to drop-off/pick up and buses.

Buses will return to the WEST side of the building. .

Student drop-off/pick up will return to the EAST side of the building.

The East parking lot will still be available for parents to drop off and pick up students.

Look for this change to happen Thursday, January 5th, of the week we return.

Thank you!

Thank you, PTO

Thank you to our PTO Board & members, along with all the parent volunteers to help to make the Winter Ball a huge success. About 315 students attended this fun evening.

We also want to say thank you for sponsoring and judging the door decorating contest, the candy grahams, and for the staff appreciation treats in the staff room this week.
