It’s a WolfPack Thing.
On January 11, 2019, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, as part of his Schools That Teach Tour, visited the new Winding Creek Elementary School in Cumberland Valley School District. The students had the opportunity to showcase their work in STEM. He was joined at the school by other local officials, including some of Cumberland Valley’s business, industry and education partners. Also joining for the special visit were several Cumberland Valley High School students who are involved in programs with Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.
At the start of the 2018-2019 school year the announcement was made that the school mascot was a Wolf and students the WolfPack.
The new Winding Creek Elementary School, designed by Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates (CRA Architects), integrates 21st century educational spaces which allow for various forms of instruction, including individual, small and large group, and outdoor educational spaces. The facility is designed with flexible and adaptable educational environments able to meet the individualized needs of all learners.
The Schools That Teach tour celebrates the teaching and learning taking place in Pennsylvania classrooms every day, and provides a forum for communities across the state to discuss how to create and improve educational opportunities for students, regardless of their zip code.
