Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

Novemeber 12, 2014

Welcome Tustumena Families,

We have some important announcements.

First, tomorrow, November 13th, at 6pm- we have a parent meeting to answer questions about the new report cards. The focus is on grades 4-6 but anyone is invited. The agenda is:

  • History of "Why" we went to standards-based report cards
  • How to interpret the new form and options of expanded form
  • Questions

We will answer the questions we can, and record the questions that we do not have answers for, research them, and then publish the answers in this newsletter.

Next, we have TURKEY BINGO coming up next Friday, November 21. Lots of fun and a great fundraiser for our school. Come and win your Thanksgiving dinner (tie breaker prizes are pies)

Best Wishes,

Doug Hayman

From our Librarian

Spend your volunteer time surrounded by books! What could be better?? Miss Thompson is always looking for help with shelving books and other library projects.


Our next Box Top Store is Dec. 8th and 9th!

Don’t miss out! Bring in those Box Tops For Education or Tyson Chicken coupons to exchange for new treasures.

We’re also promoting a recycling program. The Box Top Store staff is accepting contributions of slightly used toys, books, games, crafts, etc. Please don't throw those unwanted items away. Bring the treasures to the recycling box in the parent room, so other children can enjoy them.
