Mrs. Szafranski's Class

Week 17: January 4-8

iPads and Android Tablets

This semester, with your permission, your child is welcome to bring their iPad/tablet to school. We will be using them to create, learn and research throughout the day. We are hoping this opportunity will help to prepare your child as we look forward to August 2015 when all H.S.E. K-4 classrooms will be 1:1. If your child will be bringing a device to school, the permission slip that will come home tomorrow (Tuesday) must be signed and returned. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Get excited and mark your calendars for our first TCE FAMILY S.T.E.A.M. NIGHT on Friday, February 5th from 5:30-7:30pm. STEAM is an educational term to describe real world opportunities for students to learn with science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. At the TCE FAMILY STEAM NIGHT, TCE students and their family members of all ages are welcome to come and participate in a variety of unique, educational STEAM experiences. Participants will travel as a family (children with their adults) to share in the learning process! Pizza will be available in the cafeteria for families to purchase. More details will be forthcoming! We hope you plan to be there!

NWEA Testing

We are scheduled to take our mid-year NWEA assessment on January 14 (math) and January 19 (reading). Students who do not finish their test during the hour we are in the computer lab will have the opportunity to finish in the classroom. Scores will be emailed to you when all TCE students have finished testing.
