Message From Mrs. El-Amin & Ms. Riddle
Good Evening TLA Families,
This week has been an amazing week, filled with celebrations. Scholars were recognized for their outstanding work in our three pillars: Rigorous Academics via the Honor Roll, Character Development via outstanding Character awards, and Career Exploration via Career awards. Take a moment and help us recognize how far we have come.
We wanted to give you some updates and share some quick reminders with all of you:

- Beloit Police Department (BPD) will be here all day Wednesday for CPR training. We will also have two officers presenting to middle and high school scholars about a few hot topics amongst youth across the world including: vaping, bullying, and social media.
- Spread the word: Enrollment for new scholars for the 2023-2024 school year is open until February 28, 2023. Applications received by this date will be entered into the lottery. Applications received after the February 28th deadline will be added to the waitlist in the order in which they were received.

Congratulations to all TLA scholars on all of the growth they demonstrated on their winter MAP tests! We met all of our school goals! K5-sophomores are on track for nearly a year and half of both math and reading growth and nearly two-thirds scholars met their individual targets. Thank you for all of your support with getting your child/ren to school every day, completing their homework, and commitment to academic expectations at TLA.
School Growth on Winter MAP Testing
Career Chat with Ms. Benisch
It is a new month! This month we are focusing on STEAM careers, including IT. We started the month off with guests from Kerry Ingredients and RH Batterman & Co, Inc. The scholars learned about being surveyors, civil engineers, and flavor scientists. Scholars had the opportunity to ask questions about training required, skills needed to enter the field, and salary. Thank you to both businesses for taking time out of their day to meet with our scholars!
K4 Learning About Careers
K4 scholars participated in Crayola's Creativity Week. Each day scholars were presented with a new theme, where different fields including NASA, theater, cultural dancers, and comedians discussed how they use creativity to develop ideas and problem solve for their occupation. Scholars then listened to a story read by the field representative and learned new creative ways for drawing in that field.
Middle and high school quarter 3 clubs started this past week! Please log on to Skyward and pay the club fee if your scholar is participating. In addition we are adding a High School study club starting next week. Scholars will be required to sign up using the form shared with them.
* Please note Friday's Gaming Club is for E-Sports participants only.
