MESSAGE FROM DR. CHURCH

Dear Totem Falls Families,


What a great Field Day it was yesterday! Mr. Carter’s work with 6th graders created many activities students enjoyed today. As a traditional end of year activity, it marks that the last day of school is near. As you know, our last day of school is Monday. We will have an all school assembly celebrating the many accomplishments of students this year. Please feel free to join us for the assembly beginning at 9:00am and is slated for about 45 minutes.


After the assembly, the students will be able to watch the staff vs. 6th grade kickball game. We will end the day by celebrating our 6th graders in our “clap out” where they will walk around the school while K-5th grade students applaud their schoolmates for their leadership and example.


Then its off to start their summer vacations at 11:45am. We all wish you a great break and look forward to seeing everyone in the fall.


Sincerely,

Craig

    MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD'S IMMUNIZATIONS ARE UP TO DATE

    It is important to make sure your child goes to their regularly scheduled wellness appointments, which often include immunizations. The summer months are a great time to get your child caught up with immunization requirements before the 2022-2023 school year. Schedule your appointments early, as health care providers’ schedules quickly fill up in August and September. Make sure to turn in your updated immunization paperwork to the school by Wednesday, September 7.

    This reminder is especially important if your child is transitioning to preschool, kindergarten, or 7h grade, as each of these grades has additional immunization requirements.

    Every student enrolled/registered in school or childcare in the state of Washington must have medically verified up-to-date immunization records on file with the school in which they are enrolled/registering before the first day of school 2022-2023. Medically verified immunization records include one or more of the following:
