Field Trip!!

We had such a great adventure on our field trip Thursday! We learned all about animals, habitats and nature. We will be able to bring that knowledge back to TCE to help improve the habitats and nature around our school. A huge thank you to all our chaperones as well!!

Popsicles for Puppies

Miss Vetter’s class will be selling popsicles during recess on Friday, May 8th with all proceeds going to the Humane Society for Hamilton County. This event, “Popsicles for Puppies,” is their final project for their class PBL on animal shelters. If you would like your child to purchase a popsicle during this time, please have your child bring $0.50 and a signed permission slip (permission slips came home in backpacks today) to school on or before Friday, May 8th. Thank you for your support!

Field Day volunteers needed

Field Day at TCE will be Friday, May 22. Mr. Cushman and the Field Day committee is in need of many volunteers to help with this fun-filled day. A sign up form was sent home yesterday. If you can help please complete the form and return it to school.
