#TurrillTough means...

...at Turrill we're not just building things. We want to work with our parents to build better people!! A Community of Success!


We think that each one of us is strong individually but we are even stronger when we work together.


Good news and even better news!! The good news is that office referrals in April were down...way down! We cut them in half this year compared to last. The better news is that we are well on our way to having less office referrals in May this year compared to last year, too.


If May office referrals are less than last year then the incentive is going to get me soaked!!


So if and when we reach our goal in May of fewer office referrals this year compared to last, on Friday, June 8th, selected students from each class will have a chance to throw water balloons at me.


Making the best choices to make our school the best is...


being Turrill Tough!!
