Girls on the Run Club at Wolf Canyon…

Wolf Canyon is starting a Girls on the Run team for girls in grades 3 through 6! For those of you who are not familiar with the program, the girls learn a variety of social-emotional skills and develop healthy habits. In their team and with the guidance of their coaches, the students make friends, set goals, and overcome challenges. The program runs for 10 weeks with two 90-minute sessions a week after school here at Wolf Canyon. Session dates will be announced soon. Girls on the Run concludes with a 5K celebration on December 4th!

If you are interested in being a volunteer coach, please reach out as soon as possible to our head coach, Amanda Rhoads, as the deadline to sign up is August 15th. Registration for 3rd through 6th-grade girls is ongoing into September but will max out at 20 girls on the team, so it is first come, first serve!

Registration includes 20 sessions for the duration of the season, a Girls on the Run t-shirt, water bottle, and 5k registration and medal.

Morning Parking Lot Reminders

Good Afternoon Wolf Canyon Families,

Thank you for making the transition to the new school year so smooth!  We have noticed many families walking this year, and the impact has been immense.  In fact, the traffic in the parking lot has improved dramatically, and we thank you for your efforts. 

With that in mind, we did want to share a few quick reminders and tips.

  1. Please remember to always use the crosswalk.  We know that it can be a bit faster to cut across the parking lot in different sections, but drivers have been trained to watch for pedestrians in the crosswalks and not necessarily in other places.  We have had a couple of close calls recently and want to ensure everyone arrives safely.  We also want to continue to teach all our students the safest way to cross a busy street or parking lot.
  2. Our student crossing guard teams are back!!  Please exercise a bit more patience and understanding than usual as we work to get our teams totally trained.  Once they have been on the job for a bit, the time spent waiting in the drop-off line will shorten!
  3. The signs that are posted near the edge of the sidewalk in the drop-off lane that say, “No stopping, pull all the way forward,” are intended to prevent drivers from leaving their cars unattended and parked.  When dropping off we ask that you please pull as far forward as you can.  If you have driven past the first crosswalk (where you see me each morning), and all the cars in the line in front of you have stopped, you can have your children exit the vehicle and then pull away.  You do not have to wait until you get to the front of the line to have them leave the vehicle.
  4. It is fastest if children start preparing to exit the vehicle as soon as you enter the parking lot.  Then, once you stop, they can say goodbye and I love you, hop out of the car, and shut the door quickly.  The faster we can get students out of cars, the shorter the wait time will be. Those few extra seconds make all the difference when we are trying to get so many cars through the line.
  5. The bus loop located at the southwest corner of the school is designated for busses and staff parking.  Please continue to be mindful of this.  We have had a few close calls with drivers making illegal U-turns at both, the entrance, and exit of the south bus loop.  Please remember that area is not intended as a drop-off area.  We kindly ask that you use the main drive-thru loop.

We can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support! 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Respectfully,

Principal Lange

We Need Your Help…

We are looking for three pop-up tents to use for our lunch area… If you have one that you no longer need and want to donate it we would gladly take it off of your hands 🙂 If you happen to have one you can bring it to the front office and drop it off with Vicky.

Arrival Reminders

Good Evening Wolf Canyon Families,

It was a joy to see our Wolf Canyon Timberwolves back at school today.  We hit the ground running today, and are excited about everything the remainder of the year holds for us.  We know that the parking lot drop-off can be hectic in the morning, and we genuinely appreciate your patience.  Please remember that today was a bit more hectic than normal because of limited parking issues related to TK/K orientation, and families parking and walking their children to class.  Tomorrow, we anticipate it to calm down a bit because more people will utilize the drop-off lane (the lane closest to the school buildings).  While the traffic situation will continue to improve, we continue to strongly encourage you to walk to school (if possible).   

Tomorrow’s Arrival:

Gates will be open at 8:20, and all of our 1st-6th grade families will be able to walk their students to the blacktop area (students were shown their lines today while at school).  When there, students can walk laps, read at their lines, or sit at their line until picked up by the teacher at 8:45.  TK and K please follow the directions you received this morning at orientation.   

The tardy bell will ring at 8:45 and our students, teachers, and staff will be eager to begin class immediately at that time.  For this reason, we ask that you make your way off campus after dropping off.

Arrival and Pick-Up Safety Reminders: 

There are nearly 1000 students that attend Wolf Canyon, and our parking lot infrastructure was not designed to support that number.  Because of this, it is even more important to remember the following guidelines.  

IF YOU ARE DROPPING OFF STUDENTS PLEASE DO SO IN THE DRIVE-THRU LANE (CLOSEST TO THE BUILDING) AND PULL AS FAR FORWARD AS POSSIBLE BEFORE LETTING STUDENTS OUT.  PLEASE DO NOT DROP STUDENTS OFF OUTSIDE THE 600 BUILDING AS THIS SLOWS TRAFFIC DOWN.

DRIVE SLOWLY AND CAUTIOUSLY

OBSERVE SIGNS AND CONES

THANK YOU FOR NOT TEXTING OR TALKING ON CELL PHONES WHILE DRIVING

REMEMBER TO USE THE CROSSWALKS AT ALL TIMES

THANK YOU FOR NOT DOUBLE PARKING

THE PARKING LOT IS NOT A PICKUP AND DROP-OFF AREA

THANK YOU FOR NOT MOTIONING FOR YOUR CHILD TO WALK BETWEEN CARS

THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS OF THE SAFETY PATROL OFFICERS

THANK YOU FOR BEING RESPECTFUL AND POLITE

BIKES, SCOOTERS, SKATEBOARDS, HOVERBOARDS, ETC. MUST REMAIN LOCKED ON THE BIKE RACK OR KEPT IN A SAFE PLACE IN THE CLASSROOM TO BE DETERMINED BY THE TEACHER. STUDENTS MUST WALK THESE ITEMS ON CAMPUS DURING ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL

We hope that you have a fantastic evening.  We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Respectfully,

Mr. Lange
