TLCA Parent Newsletter
My challenge to you this month is to focus on the positive. When you wake up in the morning, try to speak something positive over yourself. Then find someone to speak something positive to. If someone says something positive to you, thank them, receive it, and hold on to it. Basically, not "thanks BUT..." statements allowed. :)
At the end of this month, or even throughout, I'd love to hear some of the positive things you've shared and seen!
April Showers Bring...the STAAR
I don't want any students stressing out over this test, all I want is their best. I know they can do this!
Please make sure they have a healthy breakfast and lots of rest to prepare physically for this mental challenge!
4th and 7th will have Writing boot camp!
This time is to prepare students for the STAAR in a fun and team building way!
All other grade levels will have their Boot Camp closer to May. We would love to have parents come in and help or participate in the fun activities we have planned!
FREE DRESS REWARD
5th and 8th Grade: If their passing percentage increases by 10% then the entire grade level will receive free dress for the week!
Jackets that are NOT in dress code, may be work outside but not in the building. Jackets must be black, blue, grey, white or brown. No special colors allowed. If you have a question, just send them to the office.
Cell phones should be off and in students backpacks throughout the day. If they go off, but are in their backpacks, you may take them up, but they DON'T have to pay the fine. The fine pertains to when they are caught with them on their person and on or they are using it to the school day.
Backpacks are supposed to be clear or mesh. This is in the handbook but the premise is for safety.
