Transitioning to Pacific Middle School


Students and families,

We know that the 2020-21 school year was extremely challenging in distance learning. Some students were able to transition to in-person learning through our hybrid model in April, however, many of our students remained in distance learning. Therefore, we want to be intentional when bringing our students back in September and addressing their individual needs.

·         Pacific teachers AT ALL GRADE LEVELS will provide transition lessons and activities the first week of school. This will ensure that every student at Pacific will be welcomed to Pacific in a compassionate and caring way. All students will engage in activities that will help them transition back to school, learn where their classes are, get to know each of their teachers, learn and understand The Viking Way, and learn their way around Pacific so they feel safe and comfortable.  

·         Welcome Back Webinar August 30th:  students and families will be able to access virtually, Pacific’s Welcome Back Webinar. The link will be posted on our website by 3:00pm.

·         Student Schedule: Students will be able to access their student schedule in StudentVue. Student schedules will be ready to access by Monday, August 30th. We will have tutorial slides posted on our website by August 30th, showing students/families how to access their schedule in StudentVue.


The Viking Way

We respect diversity, show compassion, and support and encourage each other.

We have an adventurous spirit, so we try new things, and we have a growth mindset.

We demonstrate our character with integrity.

We strive every day to do our best work and to be our best selves.

We are Vikings. We make a difference. This is the Viking way!
