Veteran's Day Celebration- Thursday, November 10 & Friday, November 11

-Thank you, Ms. Sierra for coordinating this year's Veteran's Day celebration at our school. Everyone is invited to wear their red, white, and blue on Thursday. Students will get to meet and learn from local Veterans in our community. Our school will be hosting a small breakfast for our Veterans and then head to the Celebration in the Gym at around 9:30.

On Friday, Nov. 11, everyone is invited to wear camouflage as we continue to remember all the men and women that have served our country. We will have outside morning announcements as we raise the flag Friday morning.


We take a lot of pride in our attendance at Tornillo Elementary. Please help us maintain it at 98%!

1. When your child is absent, please send the doctor's note or parent note to the office the next day.
