Terrapin Tidbits

SY20 TCES Family Issue #16

A Week: 1/6 - 1/10/20

Happy New Year to our Terrapin Families!


What a pleasure it was to welcome our students back to school last Thursday morning! Teachers, staff, and students greeted one another with smiles, stories, and high fives.


As we start a new calendar year and marking period two draws to a close, our focus will remain on working in partnership with you to create a child-centered learning environment enabling all students to become successful, healthy, active learners who pursue their own, individual level of excellence. Together Committed to Excellence!


Warm regards,

Lindsay Brenfleck

PBIS Door Decorating Adventure

Our PBIS Door Decorating Adventure is underway!


Each class is selecting an area of our school and brainstorming ways to visually represent how to follow our School-wide Expectations in that area. When all doors are ready, classes will take a tour through the school.


What a fun way for teachers to re-teach, review, and provide our students with a way to practice our School-wide Expectations! Photos will be coming soon.
