Talley Street Upper Elementary
From the Principal
Dear Talley Street Community,
It has been a great beginning to the new school year! Thank you for every one’s support! The Talley Street Community is amazing! The carpet in the gym has been removed and the new sports court has been installed. A temporary bike rack is now in the front of the building. The permanent racks will be installed soon. Progress is being made on the playground. More equipment was installed over the weekend and work began on the basketball goals this morning. Expressions for the SLT and PTO are due to me by this Friday, August 9 th . I encourage everyone to get involved with one of these important groups. They both are crucial to the success of the school.
Have a wonderful week!

Here at Talley Street, we will be holding weekly "Talley Rallies" for our students, staff, and community. These rallies will take place on Friday mornings in the gym beginning at 7:45 a.m. and lasting until approximately 8:15 a.m. We will sing songs, dance, share highlights from the week, and celebrate our amazing CREW. Please note that we will be dividing the school in half to accommodate Talley Rallies. Your child's class will attend every-other-Friday. Here are the groups:
GROUP A: Bundschu, Ellspermann, Muhlhausen, Spoeth, Swank, White,
Girard, Sanders, San Angelo, Pacini, Tention, Kramer, Farley, Young, Thompson
GROUP B: Edwards, Irons, Morrison, Sulmers, Woodbridge, Wren, Hicks, Long,
Mallory, Scott, Foy, Freidrich, Gilley, Falco, Camarind, Benzin
For the month of August, parents/community members will NOT be able to
attend. We will be practicing with our students. The first day for parents to
attend Talley Rallies is 9/6 (GROUP A), and 9/13 (GROUP B).
Talley Rally Agreements:
- Be where your feet are.
- Choose JOY.
- Do the right thing.
If you have any questions about Talley Rallies, please email Coach Nichols
From the Nurse
Please make sure all health forms and medication authorization forms are returned to the teacher or nurse in the next two weeks. All medications must be labeled. If it is a prescription, the original label must be on. For over the counter medications (Tylenol, Benadryl, Motrin/Advil), please write the name of your child on the box or bottle. The over the counter medications must be unopened and sealed for your child's safety. If your child has more than one medication, there must be an administration form for each medicine. Thank you!

Room Parents Still Needed
Room Parent Volunteers Needed
Several 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classes are still in need of room parents. Please see this link for room parent needs and reach out to Shannon Connolly (email@example.com) and Jenny Madsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are able to volunteer. If your child's classroom has a room parent or two already, please consider volunteering to be a volunteer for one of the "specials". We are still in need of a musically inclined parent or two for our Music teachers, as well as a few volunteers to help the Spanish teachers, Paras and Special Ed teachers. Thank you for helping to support our teachers and school!
Hello Talley Music Community! Mr. Thompson and I are so happy to be your music teachers. We are excited to get know, as well as build, your musical interests and talents. As soon as we have information about band and chorus, we will be informing all those interested.
