Tiogue's Weekly Family Newsletter

October 7, 2018 - No.6

What's Happening at Tiogue Elementary School, Home of the Timberwolves

Important Announcement:

After reviewing our attendance records from the beginning of school (day one, Aug. 30th), until our first perfect attendance deadline of Sept. 28th, we noticed that the report that we pulled from our student information system was incorrect! GOOD NEWS - We jumped from 83 students with perfect attendance from that period of time to 232 students!!! That means that 65% of our students were not out of school up to October 1st.

We can not express how relieved and how happy we are at that number of students.

We were also able to take away all of the students that did not ever start the school year at our school. Believe it or not, we have over 1 dozen students that were counted into our original numbers of absences. So, with those students removed from our count, we are more than meeting our goal right now!

That said, we had to think quickly on Friday to include the students into our reward/raffle system. Students will get their perfect attendance certificates this week and will be entered into the mid-year drawing for a Kindle Fire.

Again, we are so pleased and keep up the great attendance!

Please consider joining our Tiogue PTA!

Our PTA helps to organize most of our special events at the school and handles the fundraising for items and programs that do not come from our District budget.
