Dear Middle School Families,


First, I would like to thank all of you for such a warm welcome to the CLV district and community! I have thoroughly enjoyed my first 2+ months as your Principal. It quickly became apparent to me what an incredibly deep level of pride and support exists for our school within the CLV community.  Seeing so many students, parents, graduates and community members at each event that I have attended only emphasized what a supportive and involved community we are all a part of.

As we enter November, students and parents are reminded that the first quarter will be ending on November 13. I encourage everyone to check the PowerSchool Portal frequently. Making sure that all work has been completed and submitted in a timely manner will ensure that each student is able to receive a grade that is truly reflective of their abilities. I encourage students to ask their teachers right away if they have any questions about assignments or expectations in any class at any time throughout the year. Grading questions are much easier to answer before the marking period closes!
CLV 6th graders have chosen Cleveland, Ohio as the destination for their annual class trip. Students will attend a performance of Phantom of the Opera and spend time in the city before visiting Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky. On Tuesday, November 10, the class of 2022 will be hosting a Chicken and Biscuit dinner prior to our community Veterans Day program. All proceeds will go to support the class trip.  I hope to see you there!
Lastly, as the holiday approaches, please take a moment along with me to think of all that you are thankful for. For myself, I want to thank everyone- students, staff, parents and community members for making the past few months so great. Go Timberwolves!

Most sincerely,

Paul M. Kowalski
