Picture Retakes

Picture Retake Day is Thursday, October 1. Please let me know if you need an order form or have any questions!


Parent/Teacher Conferences will be a little different this year! We are conducting student-led conferences. These conferences allow your child to be an important part by having them share their accomplishments and helping to create goals for the year. Teachers will be sending out directions on Wednesday, September 30th for parents to sign up electronically for a conference date between Monday, October 5th and Wednesday, October 21st. We can’t wait to celebrate your child’s learning with you!

Fall Fundraiser

Our Fall Fundraiser has started! A blue information sheet came home with your child earlier this week. This is a no-sell fundraiser in which all proceeds go directly to TCE. The fundraiser will continue thru October 31st. Every child who raises $10 or more will bring home a prize and every family who donates $50 or more will be entered in a raffle to win an iPod Touch! Thank you for all of your support!

Grandparents Day

We had a wonderful time with the grandparents today! It was so fun to meet YOUR parents! Students and grandparents discussed what school life was like "back then" (we cleared up our question about whether or not the world was black and white). The grandparents also helped the kids complete a timeline of the kids' lives. Grandparents toured the room, met classmates, read with their grandchildren, and even got to learn some math games! Check out the pictures below.
