Information and News

School Store

Our students will have the opportunity to do their own Christmas shopping at the TWE HOLIDAY STORE! Your child should have received a red school store order sheet last week in their Tuesday folder. This flyer has information and pricing about the items that will be available, as well as the procedure for purchasing.

You can go to www.twepta.org for a sneak peek at the Holiday Store items.

You'll need to complete the red order form that includes which types of items you would like to allow your child to purchase, along with money.


Artley, Hernandez, Longoria, Miller: December 4

Manning, Smith, Howard, Counter; December 5

We will have a preview day on Wednesday, December 3, during which your child can "scope out" what they might want to purchase.

Please be sure to send money on their scheduled shopping day if your child plans to purchase. That is the only day we are scheduled to shop.


If you purchased Packpons, here are the dates for the remainder of the PackPon days. Your teachers have a list of all the students who bought them at the beginning of the year. You may still purchase packpons - bring $5 to school! :)

Hat Day – 12/5
