September 2nd, 2022
Launch Conferences and Wolfpack Launch Connections brought vitality back into the building. Listening to the excited student conversations and the thoughtful parent questions was exciting and bucket-filling. I appreciate the parents that came to the Family Advisory Committee meeting. The next one will be on October 4th, at 5:30PM in the NCHS Library.
I hope to see you at the Red and Black scrimmage this afternoon at North Central HS.

Jordis Harmer Presents at WASA Conference
Each summer, the Washington Association of School Administrators hosts a summer conference that is a must-attend event for educational leaders. The conference features a wide array of professional speakers focusing on developing leaders and advancing careers. This year, North Central’s Jordis Harmer was a featured student speaker. Jordis gave her message in front of principals, assistant principals, superintendents, principal interns and district-level administrators across the state. Congratulations Jordis!

Announcements and Events
New Single Point of Entry Process
This summer, our single point of entry construction was completed, and we are so proud of the work that was done. We worked diligently to revise our entry procedures for visitors with keeping our students safe as our primary focus. Entering the building this year will look different for students, parents, and visitors. Please watch the video below for an overview of what you can expect when you come to North Central. We appreciate you partnering with us to keep our Wolfpack safe!
Family Advisory Committee Launch
If you missed the Family Advisory Committee meeting this week, you can catch up by viewing the PowerPoint Presentation. We will have four additional meetings this year. We look forward to partnering with you and your student.
STA Bus Service for High School Students
Like many districts across the nation, Spokane Public Schools reevaluated its transportation model and service options to address the ongoing bus driver shortage. After a careful review of new boundaries, routes, and stops, the SPS School Board made the decision for SPS to form a partnership with Spokane Transit Authority (STA) for increased high school ridership.
There are STA options for high school students living outside the 1.5-mile walk zone radius, as well as high school students living within the 1.5-mile walk zone radius. High school students living outside the 1.5-mile walk zone radius who also live in an area without sufficient STA service will be able to ride a yellow bus or van to their school.
