School Supply List
If you need assistance purchasing school supplies, please contact one of our social workers:
Jenna Auen - firstname.lastname@example.org
Ashlee Conely - email@example.com
The Neighborhood Service Center is also assisting families with school supplies. You must contact them by the end of July to fill out the paperwork.
Transportation for students will see significant improvements this fall, as it will be available for students who live one mile or more from TEAM and require the use of a bus pass. As such, parents of any and all students riding the regular bus routes will need to register at one of the summer transportation open houses scheduled from 5pm-8pm on Monday, July 22, Wednesday, July 31 or Monday, August 5. All open houses will be in the Waseca Junior/Senior High School Commons. When all forms have been received by either Palmer or Lenz Bus Companies and the routes have been finalized, route information and bus passes for each qualifying student will be available at the students' respective school open house in late August.
Back to School Kickoff
The Back to School Kickoff will be on Thursday, August 29 from 4-6 PM. During the kickoff event, parents will pick up a packet of paperwork to return to school, bring in school supplies, drop off medications with the nurse, etc. We hope that by structuring our Kickoff Night this way you can spend more time getting to know your child’s teacher and less time filling out paperwork. If you would still like to schedule a meeting with your child’s teacher please contact the main office and we will help you get in contact with them. Parents can order our NEW TEAM Academy t-shirt that night for your child. They are $10 each and are navy.
All students who are currently attending TEAM are automatically enrolled for the following school year. New students will be enrolled on a first come first serve basis. All students who sign up after a class is full will be put on a waiting list. If you know of anyone thinking of enrolling their child at TEAM please encourage them to do so as soon as possible to ensure they have a spot. Our 4th grade class is full and a few others are close to being full!
Updating Contact Information
Please be sure to notify the office of any change in address, phone number, change of work place, marital status, family members or emergency phone numbers. Notification of these changes as they occur are greatly appreciated.
You can also log into your Infinite Campus Parent Portal to update your contact information.
Free Breakfast and Lunch for EVERY Student
We are pleased to announce that TEAM Academy will participate again in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for School Year 19-20. What does this mean for you and your children attending TEAM? All enrolled students of TEAM Academy are eligible to receive a healthy break-fast and lunch at school at no charge to your household. As parents, you can count on your child(ren) eating two healthy meals each day! If your child brings a lunch from home and needs a milk or wants to purchase a 2nd milk for their lunch it will cost them $0.50.
Free Healthy Snacks
TEAM Academy will once again have the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) this year. A fresh fruit or vegetable snack will be provided for students every day. Snacks will be served mid-morning. The main goal of the FFVP is to increase the fruit and vegetable consumption of elementary school children. In addition to providing fresh fruits and vegetables, another goal of this program is to provide nutrition education to the children. Please continue to talk with your children about the healthy choices they receive at school.
