Positives for our Wolf PACK

Corn Hole in the Commons was a blast for Dylan A, Brie P & Collin A and the class periods that they each picked to enjoy this raffle with them.

Today, Reese R and Elijah H each won for the cooking session with Mrs. Hurst. Their French Toast Maples Bars were a hit. The winners got to pick a friend to attend with them. Each 'chef' made one for themselves, one for a teacher of their choice, and then we spoiled the office staff.

Our next raffles include:

  • Hot chocolate bar for you and 2 friends. (4 winners will be drawn.)
  • Scholastic Prize Pack of fun things from our Book Fair (2winners)

Students can earn raffle tickets by trading in 10 Wolf Bucks or by being selected by a teacher for a PACK Character Award. Students can select which raffle they most want to enter.

Selkirk Community Sense of Belonging Survey

Thank you to those of you who already completed this!!!
