Have you heard the News?!

We're excited to announce that we have a new Turrill Postal Service!! And parents can send letters, too. The mailbox is located right outside the Main Office.

Special Thanks to Mr. King and Mrs. Brown for their efforts on the mailbox. It looks great!!

Potential Purposes (in no particular order and certainly not limited to just these ideas):

  • Just for Fun and Inspiration!
  • For students identified by staff needing some positive words of encouragement
  • For staff identified by others in need of some positive affirmations!
  • For students to write to an audience of their choosing within the classroom or school community
  • An opportunity for students to practice their writing and reading skills in an authentic way
  • Another way teachers' can reinforce reading and writing skills already being taught in the classroom
  • An opportunity for parents to send words of encouragement to their child
  • An opportunity for the principal to communicate positive and timely messages to staff and students

What can be mailed?

  • Student mail should be in the form of a Postcard so that it is open and viewable for staff (the postcards are even designed to be colored, too!)
  • Student mail sent in a sealed envelope should only occur if the letters were part of an activity that was directly supervised by the classroom teacher who created the letters

Who can mail items?

  • Students
  • Staff
  • Parents

Who can postcards and letters be mailed to?

  • Students
  • Staff
  • Parents

When will mail be delivered?

  • Mail will be delivered on Fridays with collection being done on Thursdays

How do I address the Postcards or Envelopes?
