Wolftrap Under the Stars

The BIG event you’ve all been waiting for is just days away: that’s right, Wolftrap Under the Stars is Friday, September 9th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM on the field behind the school and according to local weather forecasters it looks like it’s going to be a beautiful evening! 

Wolftrap Under the Stars is a FUN, family event and all are welcome to join in the celebration! Bring a picnic blanket or folding chair to sit on, but there is so much to do, you may just use it as a meeting place for your crew. 

Reminder: Keep an Eye on Your Kiddos

Gentle reminder: Parents are expected to be present to supervise their children (or at least a parent with a group). Students are not to be dropped off without an adult who is responsible for their group. 

We are grateful to our primary sponsor Ghaffari Orthodontics for their help in making this event extra special for all of you! Below is a bunch of information to help with all things “Wolftrap Under the Stars”. For for ongoing updates, join our Facebook Group we'll continue to post more there (click here to join).
