TJ Updates

Thank you to everyone on the Reading Incentive Committee for planning a great month of celebrating reading! I hope you are enjoying reading "Humphrey". I had a great time at the assembly and passing out books to the families. The families that came back for "Bedtime Stories at T.J." had a great time. Thank you to everyone who came back to either read or enjoy some stories. I loved the excitement in the air on Wednesday. It was reinvigorating and reminded me of why we are in education.

Thanks go out to Katie, Beth and the rest of the Wheatland music department for another outstanding district concert. It is amazing to see our students perform along with every other musician in Wheatland.

Here are some pictures from last week...
