Tustumena Elementary Newsletter
December 8, 2015
Tis the Season... a lot going on
FOOD DRIVE, FOOD DRIVE, FOOD DRIVE!
Tustumena is again, partnering with the KP Food Bank to gather food items for the Food Bank. The food will be picked up on December 16th. Please send food items to school with your child that are non-perishable. Unfortunately, we can not send in any home-canned items. Thank you.
I would like to thank all of our volunteers and especially Miss Nancy from the Merc, for all their work and contributions to the Santa Shop we had available this week. It will be open two more days so if your child has not brought packages home yet, they will.
Last, I would like to remind everyone of the CONCERT THIS THURSDAY AT 6PM. Please arrive at 5:45 if you have a child in the concert. There is a flyer at the end of this newsletter.
Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

“Learning a musical instrument early in life can improve function of the corpus callosum, a brain structure that allows communication between the two brain hemispheres. Learning an instrument is thought to improve memory, organization, coordination, math and reading skills, concentration, self-discipline, and confidence.”
