Welcome to Tornillo Elementary!

QT4 Week 10: May 22-26

Happy Sunday Elementary Coyotes!

We are down to the last three weeks of school. This year has been such a success and I would like to thank every single one of you for being part of our school community. There are some great things happening in 2023-2024 and we can't wait to share them with you all.

1. Last 13 days of school - Let's Finish Strong Coyotes!

With the end of the school year right around the corner, please help us remind our students to finish strong with their behavior and academics. Please find the End of the Year Award ceremony information below. No backpacks, starting June 7.

The last day of school is Thursday, June 8.

-uniforms are worn, Monday-Wednesday

-Collge Shirt Thursday

2. Summer School- Friday, June 9-June 16

Summer school permission slips will be going out this week. Our goal is to work hard to make student's learning fun! Our summer school session will run 8:00-12:00 for all our PK-2nd grade students this June.

2. 2023-2024 Returning Registration for all Students - Why is it important to register my child?

We have made numerous phone calls and sent friendly reminders for our current students who have not registered for the upcoming school year. Why is it important to register your child for the next school year?

Believe it or not, our district and campus is already underway planning for the new academic year. Registering your child ensures their spot is saved and ensures that we have the correct number of teachers needed for each grade level. As teachers, we invest a lot during the summer in professional growth and getting ready for our incoming students. Our leadership also works hard and looks at the academic and social needs of every child to help build the instructional schedules for the upcoming school year.

If your child is NOT returning due to a move or another circumstance, please give our front office a call so that we can note where your child will be attending next year.

Please help us get the word out, Head Start, Pre-Kinder & Kinder and New Student Registrations are open.

If you need assistance with online registration or are wondering about next year, don't hesitate to give us a call. We are always glad to help!

3. Fieldtrip Reminders

We are very excited that our district provides all our students several opportunities to attend learning fieldtrips. Please remember that the only parents allowed on a fieldtrip are parents that have been preapproved and prevetted to help as chaperones. To ensure, all of our student's safety, no unauthorized adults are allowed to "meet" their child's class at the fieldtrip site.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions regarding this policy.

4. Library Books & Student IPADS

All library books and IPADS will be turned in over the next few days. Any fees for lost or damaged books/equipment may incur a fee that MUST be paid before the last day of school. Students who have outstanding balances will not receive their report cards the last day of school.

We're Ready for a Great Week!
