The Countdown Begins!

Only 8 more school days before students are off for the winter break! There's a lot going on in those 8 days too. Thank you to all who participated in the cash raffle, it was a successful fundraiser for the Tustumena PTO. Great job to all the students who participated in the Spelling Bee last week and good luck to those participating in the Geography Bee this Friday. Just a reminder to any parents or visitors who want to come watch, please be sure to sign in at the office. Next Wednesday, we have the PTO's Box Tops Store where the students "buy" items with their box tops. The PTO is requesting donations of gently used toys for this event, you may bring them to the office during school hours. All library books are due in the library by this Friday. We finally have snow! Please be sure that ALL students have a coat, snow pants, gloves or mittens, hat and boots every day for recess and that all items are labeled with your student's name.

Congratulations and Good Luck to our Geography Bee Finalists!
