Tigerville Times

September Edition

From the Principal's Desk

Dear Tigerville Families,

I would like to thank you for a “super” start of the 2015-16 school year! Our children have adjusted quickly and they are actively engaged in learning. I would like to invite you to visit your child during their lunchtime. The children enjoy seeing family members and sharing what they are doing in school. Please feel free to stop by the front office or contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

D. Jackson

Counselor's Corner

The Tigerville Guidance Curriculum encompasses National and State standards in an attempt to provide all students the opportunity for optimum development. Grades K4-5thvisit Guidance once every other week and partake in a comprehensive program that promotes personal, social, and academic skills that are necessary to be successful members of society.

Focusing on a Character Education framework, the Tigerville Guidance Curriculum emphasizes responsible decision-making, coping strategies, self-understanding, and career development. In ties with our theme “Simply the Best… Soaring to Success,” each month a new superhero with an associated character trait is introduced. These heroes have certain “powers” that have made them super.

In August, we met Respect Renee and learned how important it is to treat others the way we want to be treated. Renee’s powers include exceptional listening skills, using kind words, and always remaining silent when someone else is speaking. In class, students were asked to make connections to their own lives and review how respect is shown both in school and at home.

Making Healthier Choices

Use the Grill to make a Healthier Dinner for the Family!

* Grill your food, rather than frying!

-Grilled Chicken

-Grilled Pizza (healthy toppings, whole wheat crust)

-Grilled Hamburger (healthy toppings)

-Grilled Seafood (fish, shrimp, etc.)

* Grilled Veggies

-Improves the taste and keeps the nutrients

-Veggies that are great for the grill are: peppers, onions, zucchini, corn, mushrooms, etc.

* Grilled Fruit

-Great idea for dessert!

-Cook on a skewer or wrapped in foil.

-This really intensifies the sweetness of the fruit!

* Mix your meat and veggies on a kebab for the kids!

-Kids love kebabs!

-It makes finger foods fun!
