The Timberwolf Times

December 6th Edition

"A" Week

PLCs: On Tuesday

LST - none this week

Take a deep breath and breathe

As we approach Christmas and New Years things begin to very hectic at school and at home. Remember to provide support to your colleagues when the tension gets high. Everyone can use a kind word, pat on the back or a funny video clip to get them through the day. We are all family...

Keep up the holiday spirit!

If you are having a holiday celebration please let the office know so we can answer parent questions

Looking for Supervisors

We are in need of three or four lunch/recess supervisors. If you know a parent that would be a good candidate for these positions please send me their name. We will be down one person in two weeks and another when we come back from break.

PTO Information

Papa Murphy's night on December 14th. PTO is still looking for two teachers to help make pizzas from 5:00-6:00 and 1 teacher from 6:00-7:00.
