Our TBE orchard is beginning to bloom!

Dear Twelve Bridges Elementary Families,


Spring is here and with that comes one of the busiest times of the school year. We have a lot of events taking place school wide and in the classrooms over the next few weeks.

Coming up this Wednesday, we have district choir day and our PTC meeting with Board elections for next year. On Thursday we have Sami's Circuit. Please make sure your students are wearing comfortable clothes and good shoes. Friday is for parents to have fun at our Monte Carlo night. The last day to buy tickets is tomorrow (Monday)!


Next week is our Book Fair, Sami Circuit Family Night, Open House, and Art Auction.


Please read through the Sunday Message carefully for more details and information on upcoming events!


I'm looking forward to an exciting few weeks!


Sincerely,


Mr. Middleton

There’s more exciting Book Fair News! Introducing eWallet – A New Digital Payment Option!

No cash on hand for the book fair? No worries! Scholastic Book Fairs is now offering eWallet as a secure, cash-free way for your child to shop the Book Fair. There is no charge to set up an eWallet. Simply create an account and authorize a spending limit to have funds available for your child use. Unlike lunch accounts, you are not charged until a purchase is made and any unused money goes back to your credit card at the end of the book fair. Please note: You must create a separate account for EACH child – Accounts cannot be shared. Please visit our book fair homepage to create your eWallet accounts today! http://www.scholastic.com/bf/tbe1
