Notes from Mrs. Stull
Happy Valentines Day!!!
Don’t forget that we have PLP’s (parent teacher conferences) next week. Be sure to double check with your student’s teacher on the date and time of your conference. PLP’s are an important part of your student’s success in school. They give you an insight to what they are learning, how they are doing on their grade-level standards, and how we intervene and/or extend your student’s learning. Most importantly, they give you, the parent/guardian, a voice in your student’s education. PLP’s will be held Tuesday, February 18 from 4-8 pm, Wednesday, February 19, from 2-4 pm and Thursday, February 20, from 8 am to 8 pm. There will not be school on Thursday or Friday. We look forward to seeing you.
2020 Kindergarten Roundup for February 26, 2020 at 2:00PM
Children residing in the Clear Creek Amana Community School District who will be five years old on or before September 15, 2020, should plan to attend Kindergarten Roundup at their attendance center Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
Kindergarten Roundup is an opportunity for your new student to visit their school and meet their teachers, principal and fellow classmates. Parents and students receive a brief overview of the kindergarten program and its academic/social expectations. Attendance also helps the district plan for the next year's staffing.
Please offer us assistance by informing your neighbors that have children ready to start school.
All families with incoming kindergartners are encouraged to call their nearest elementary school, even if the child already has older brothers or sisters at CCA. For Tiffin Elementary, please call Kali Stockman at 319-545-2081.
2/18-2/20- PLP's make sure to schedule a time with your child's teacher
2/20-2/21 No school

Shoes That Fit:
Shoes That Fit is a program that is established to help provide shoes to children in need. If your child is in need of shoes, and this program would be helpful to you, please contact Brandi Haight at the school.
TES Chess Club
Is your 2nd or 3rd grader interested in playing or learning to play Chess? The TES Chess Club will meet Thursdays after school until 4:30 in room C103, Mr. Villhauer’s classroom. We will begin February 6th. Students will learn the basics of Chess and have the opportunity to play against each other. If your child is interested please fill out the parent permission slip found in the Friday note. Questions can be emailed to Jeff Villhauer (second grade teacher) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also looking for adults that are interested in helping with the club from 3:20- 4:30 each Thursday. No Chess experience is necessary, but you do need to complete the district volunteer training. Please contact secretary Kali Stockman to confirm volunteer completion. There is a spot at the bottom of the parent permission slip to indicate if you would like to volunteer.
Here is a link with information on some of the benefits of playing Chess.
