Welcome back Wolf Pack,

It's great to be back together after a much needed break. We hope you enjoyed the change of pace and had lots of time to with family. Students have 3 more weeks until the end of second quarter.

As they returned, Mr. Larsen has been visiting classrooms sharing with him the importance of taking care of our building and sharing a message about Selkirk Pride and Ownership. This visits will continue next week.

All teachers all shared today our Top 10 Reminders for Pack Expectations, helping us setting back into routines. (We linked those slides here in case you want to check it out.)
