Get excited and mark your calendars for our first TCE FAMILY S.T.E.A.M. NIGHT on Friday, February 5th from 5:30-7:30pm. STEAM is an educational term to describe real world opportunities for students to learn with science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. At the TCE FAMILY STEAM NIGHT, TCE students and their family members of all ages are welcome to come and participate in a variety of unique, educational STEAM experiences. Participants will travel as a family (children with their adults) to share in the learning process! Pizza will be available in the cafeteria for families to purchase. More details will be forthcoming! We hope you plan to be there!

Art Room Supplies Needed

The artists in first and second grade are working hard on their student choice animal paper mache projects. We are running low on the following items. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • Newspapers
  • masking tape rolls
  • any small plastic container ex: butter bowl, sour cream etc.

Thank you for your help and supporting the arts!

NWEA Testing

We are scheduled to take our mid-year NWEA assessment the week of January 10. The tests will be completed in 2 one hour sessions covering both math and reading. Scores will be emailed to you when all TCE students have finished testing.

iPads and Android Tablets

This semester, with your permission, your child is welcome to bring their iPad/tablet to school. We will be using them to create, learn and research throughout the day. We are hoping this opportunity will help to prepare your child as we look forward to August 2016 when all H.S.E. K-4 classrooms will be 1:1. If your child will be bringing a device to school, the permission slip that came home before winter break must be signed and returned. Please let me know if you have any questions!
