End of Grading Cycle & Snack Attack
The end of our first grading cycle is this Friday, September 23rd. This means all missing/late assignments must be turned in by Friday to be included. Please check Parent Portal and reach out to your child's teacher(s) if you have any questions.
The end of the cycle also signals our first Snack Attack of the year. 4th grade will have snacks and drinks on sale for $1.00. A snack cart will be brought around to each classroom for snacks to be purchased. This fundraiser helps our 4th grade class be able to go to San Antonio/Austin for an epic educational field trip in the spring! Please send cash for your child to buy snacks.
Artistically & Academically Yours,
Betsy Compton, M.A., M.A.T., M.Ed.

Thank you for planning ahead for your child to wear his/her favorite TeSA uniform pieces. All students should be in full uniform compliance and remove all outerwear for the photos.

The academic calendar shows the beginning and ending of each grading cycle in blue. You can expect to see Progress Reports in the 3rd week of the cycle and Report Cards the week after the cycle ends. Be sure to also note school holidays in yellow and staff development days in grey. The academic calendar is approved by the Board and will not change unless there is extreme weather or state-mandated closures.
The TeSA Activity Calendar is a fluid document and may change throughout the year. It contains state-mandated days, such as STAAR testing, and also locally-developed days like Howdy Week. Please reference the TeSA Activity Calendar to save the dates for all of our performances and major events.

Girls on the Run
TeSA is proud to partner with Girls on the Run to host a running club after-school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for our 3rd-5th grade girls. Please read the message from their Program Director, Ms. Amy Taylor, below and reach out to them directly with any questions.
Every girl’s relationship and reaction to the words “back to school” is different. To some, the sound of those three words is simply musical, and the vision of new textbooks, smell of freshly sharpened pencils, and sound of busy classrooms is a welcome return. For others, “back to school” rings a slightly different tune — one that is perhaps more stress-inducing than it is exciting. Regardless of where your girl falls on the scale, one thing remains consistent; a strong start is EVERYTHING. How we initiate an experience is extremely telling of how we will conclude it. How do we enter this next chapter full of courage, self-assurance and optimism? At Girls on the Run, we choose confidence.
Girls on the Run is an afterschool program like no other! Twice per week for 10 weeks, girls will have fun, make friends, increase their physical activity levels and learn important life skills. Trained and caring coaches lead 3rd - 5th grade girls through interactive lessons and movement activities. The season ends with a celebratory 5K event.
