Hello Tainter Families!
While October was a beautiful month with fall colors and warmer temps, November has definitely taken on a cooler weather pattern. It’s time to bring out those warmer jackets, mittens, and hats!!! Welcome November!!!
Parent Teacher Conferences will be November 16th and 18th from 4-7. There will be three options for conferences: face-to-face in the classroom, phone conference, or video conference. To choose your option please go into your Skyward account to sign up. Conference scheduling began on Monday, November 1st and the scheduler will remain open until 7:00am on Monday, November 15th.

4K families will not have classes on Thursday, November 18. Your conference times will be on Tuesday, November 16 from 4:00-7:00 pm and on Thursday, November 18 from 8:00 am-7:00 pm. Please use the N9 door for your conferences.
Our Department of Public Instruction (DPI) School Report Card will be released on November 16th. The Tainter office will send home a communication to families to encourage you to view our progress as a school. We did not have a DPI School Report Card during the 2020-2021 school year due to the pandemic. School report cards have been adjusted and reworked to show the academic progress of schools across the state of Wisconsin.
November is a time to be Thankful. I am certainly Thankful for the amazing staff, students, and families here at Tainter. Thank you for your continued support!!

3rd graders have been very busy the past few weeks! We have just ended our personal narrative writing and will be stepping into persuasive writing next! In math we’ve started diving into how multiplication and division works along with strategies to help us figure out our facts. In reading we’ve been busy breaking down story elements, sequencing events, comparing and contrasting characters, and coming up with conclusions to our weekly stories. We are also excited to be starting up our weather unit in Science over the next few weeks! 3rd graders are going to get a chance to become meteorologists and create their own power point weather report for the state of their choice, which will be recorded into a video!
Time to think about and prepare for flu season! Signs and symptoms of influenza include fever, cough, fatigue, body aches, and can include sore throat. For young children it can also include vomiting and/or diarrhea.
The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. While there are many different flu viruses, the flu vaccine is designed to protect against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season. It is still not too late! Tainter Flu Clinic is November 10, 2021
In addition, you can take everyday preventive steps like eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, staying away from sick people and washing your hands to reduce the spread of germs. If you are sick with flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading influenza to others.
Yours in health!
