Hello Wolf Pack,

Teachers reviewed Quarter 3 PACK Expectations with students this week. While leaving backpacks, purses, fanny packs, and bags in lockers, has been an expectation all year, we did emphasize that we will be enforcing that consistently. A pencil pouch in a binder is a good spot to carry their needed supplies and materials.

We are also consistently enforcing cell phones, earbuds and other tech. There was a significant increase in the # of students with earbuds in throughout the day, along with students on phones: during class, leaving class to use phones in the hall or restroom, etc. We communicated with students that they may ask a staff member if they need to use their phone for something reasonable, otherwise, if phones or earbuds are out, they will go to the office for the remainder of the day.

Thank you for partnering with us around this, as we want students to engage in their learning and to take advantage of the time to socialize with others. Please limit your communication via student cell phones during school hours.

Finally, Mr. Larsen and Mrs. Hurst really appreciated the response from our Wolf PACK as we presented in classrooms around Student Responsibilities and Rights, specifically about bullying, language, and discriminatory harassment. Students could see how quickly "messing around" and "teasing" a classmate can quickly get out of hand and become a serious issue with corresponding discipline.

*Note: We linked both the Q3 PACK Expectations and the CVSD K-12 Student Responsibilities and Rights in case you have any questions or would like to view them.

Fill the Truck Food Drive

It's the time of year, when all of our CVSD Middle School collaborate with Spokane Valley Partners to help our community in a big way. Beginning Monday, we will compete to "Fill the Truck" with donated non-perishable food items. Our 1st period classrooms will be competing to see who can bring in the most and earn the most points.

Point values are - ramen and tiny cans are 1/2 point, regular size cans are 1 point, and giant cans and peanut butter are 2 points.

Help us "Fill the Truck!"
