Trimester 1 grades are now live and ready to view on Home Access
With the recent change to colder weather, please remember to send your child with their coat in the morning. Students go outside for RECESS and for GYM as long as the temperature is 20 degrees or above
. Hats and gloves are also recommended as the temperatures continue to drop! Due to cross contamination concerns, the nurse is unable to loan jackets as she has in previous years. It is very important to have your child dressed to be outside.
Please make sure to label coats and other items so they can be returned to your child if lost. Initials even help us to locate the owner! Thank you for your cooperation!
Mark your calendars!!!! Our annual winter concert is on December 14th at 7 pm.
Our SWPBIS team has started a Cafeteria Challenge. The challenge will run from December 1st through the 21st! Each class that earns 10 mittens during the month of December will be allowed to participate in whatever reward is chosen. It can be anything such as an extra recess, glow in the dark dance party, Pj day, etc. Let's keep up the good hard work showing Respectable, responsible and safe behavior in Tawanka!
Pictured below with Mr. Palmer and Mrs. McCreary are some of our Tawanka Eagles who won the Principal Challenge's in the month of November. Congratulations to our winners and let's keep up the great work Tawanka!!
Pictured below is our lost and found table. Please have your child stop and look if something of theirs is missing. Or you can contact the office and they well send it home with your child.
Some of our students in first and third grade had some fun practicing balance and agility on the obstacle course during gym.
Each month, Mrs. McFadden has a theme in our classroom. This month they were focusing on snow. Last week on Friday 12/2, her students made a snowflake snack with pretzels and marshmallows in their classroom. It was a lot of the students first time trying marshmallows and they enjoyed it.
Throughout the months of October and November, third and fourth-grade classes attended Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons with our School Counselor, Miss Pawlak. Third graders learned about identifying feelings such as anger and discussed what they could do with those angry feelings. They created storm clouds identifying their anger triggers, as well as coping skills they can use when in their anger "storm cloud situations". Fourth graders created flowers, which bloomed from situations in their lives that could've been perceived in either a positive or negative light. We worked together to identify our support systems (stems) that hold us up and help us, when needed, in deciding which path to follow; the positive or the negative. Together, we work to spread seeds of positivity around our school community, and bloom in whatever situation we may be planted in.
Run, run as fast as you can…
