Hello Wolf Pack Families,

We hope you are enjoying your remaining summer days and soaking up family time!

Thank you to the many families that have already completed the Selkirk Attendance Survey. Here is the link again to the quick survey if you haven't had a chance to update us.

Sneak Peek for incoming 6th Grade Students

August 31, 9:00-12:00. During Sneak Peek, sixth grade students will engage in activities to help them feel comfortable at school. They will interact with our 8th grade leadership students, get their schedules early, practice using their lockers, and meet some of their teachers!

Parents- there will be an brief, optional, parent meeting in the commons. We would love to meet you, share some helpful information, and answer questions.


*If you have an incoming 7th or 8th grader who is new to Selkirk and are interested in having your student come in before school starts, please email Jen Hurst @ jhurst@cvsd.org .

New Additions

You may have heard about some changes at Selkirk, especially in the area of welcoming new staff to our team.

We are excited to welcome our new Assistant Principal, Jen Hurst!

Jen has been a successful educator in Central Valley for a number of years and a longtime member of our community. She taught at Greenacres Elementary, Chester, and Liberty Lake and served last year as the dean at North Pines. Jen is also Director for the Active4Youth Cross Country program. Her enthusiasm for students and connection to our community will be of great benefit to Selkirk.

We look forward to a great year as Mrs. Hurst joins the Wolf Pack!

Student Schedules for 2022-2023

Schedules will be available in Power School on Wednesday, Sept. 7th, at 3:30 PM. Sixth grade students can get their schedules early by attending Sneak Peek on August 31.

PE Uniforms

T-shirts for PE are available through this "In-Touch" Link for $7. You will need your student's ID # to log in. That is the same # they have used since enrolling in CVSD (it's used for their Chromebook log in, library books, lunch accounts and it is the beginning of their cvsd356 email address.) If you need any assistance navigating In-Touch, please call our school office.


Note: "In-Touch" is the process to pay for the t-shirt. Your student will be able to say which size and pick up the t-shirt from their PE teacher (during the first full week of school.) If you prefer to stop into the office to pay for a shirt, you can. It will still be delivered to the student during class.
