Tidbits of Info:

  • We’ve had a great start to the school year and students are buzzing with excitement. Polaris is a learning community based on a collaborative culture that is grounded on a strong bond of people committed to working together toward shared goals and purposes. We look forward to working together to continue to be a great school.


  • Please take some time to review the attached safety documents and let us know if you have any questions. 


  • Through your enrollment, Fred Meyer Community Rewards contributed $504.71 for Jan-Mar 2016 and $494.90 for Apr-June 2016 due to 86 Polaris households who registered their Fred Meyer cards online then shopped at Fred’s.  That’s a huge help to the students at Polaris K-12! Let’s see if we can get every Polaris household signed up this year! Again, just go to www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards to register or re-register your card. Polaris is #93485. Then use your card when you shop. It’s that simple – encourage relatives and friends to do the same.


  • If you know of families who are not receiving the Wolf Weekly or would like an additional family member to receive them, please ask them to contact Angela in the office.
