Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

Have you noticed?

The school has a new addition to the front – a community food pantry. The idea is “take what you need, leave what you can”. If you find yourself or your family in need of some food, help yourself. If you find you’re able to contribute, leave what you can. Students will re-stock daily as needed. If you find there isn’t room when you come to bring items, please feel free to bring them to the office as we have addition storage inside that we re-stock from. Thank you.

Also, our PTO is requesting donations of individually-wrapped candy for their Community Easter Egg Hunt. Your donations can be brought to the school office. Thank you for your generosity!

If you would like to support our school and PTO, but are unable to assist by volunteering or donating, there's an easy way to support us without any cost to you. Simply sign up for Community Rewards through Fred Meyer and each time you shop there, Fred Meyer will donate money to our PTO. There is no cost to you, and you still get all your own Fred Meyer rewards. You can sign up here: https://www.fredmeyer.com/signin?redirectUrl=/account/communityrewards/

Tustumena is hosting the Districtwide Forensics Competition on Saturday, March 2nd at 10am. There will be concessions for sale as a fundraiser as well. Come on out and see what it's all about!

Congratulations to Tustumena's 3rd and 4th Grade Battle of the Books Team for taking Second Place out of 33 schools throughout the state at the State of Alaska Battle of the Books Competition. Great job!
