Title I Corner
Tawanka's Title I team would like to thank the parents and guardians who participated in the Fall Federal Programs meeting on October 3rd, and those who completed the Parent and Family Engagement Survey sent out on October 7th. Parent/Guardian feedback is invaluable to us as we work to improve how we work together to support student success. Feedback from the families who participated in the meeting and survey was incorporated into the revisions of Tawanka's Home-School Compact and Parent and Family Engagement Policy. Below you will find the following documents:
- The Home-School Compact reviews the roles and responsibilities of each member of Team Tawanka, including the students, parents, and teachers. Please take the time to review the Compact with your child, as they are also part of the team!
- The Parent and Family Engagement Policy looks at the various components of Tawanka's Parent and Family Engagement Program and addresses how Tawanka plans to include parents of all Tawanka students in their programming and events.
- The Title I Program Handbook is a district level document that provides an overview of the Title I program. It also includes information about parent and family engagement at both the district and building level.
Please take some time to review them. These documents outline the ways that we, as Team Tawanka, work together to support the success of each and every student. Please reach out to our Title I Literacy Specialists, Andrea Gansor (email@example.com) and Beth Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. We look forward to continuing to work as a team to support the success of all our Tawanka Eagles!

Kindergarten is Thankful!
Miss Trotta's class is thankful! We are thankful for families, friends, school, baby cats, and even water slides! We have so much to be thankful for! ❤️ Each idea was written on a turkey feather which students cut out. We then used those turkey feathers to build a turkey! We hope everyone is having a Thankful November!
Mrs. Kane's and Mrs. Ciotti's buddy classes had a great time creating turkeys and writing what they are thankful for! The third graders did an excellent job helping their kindergarten buddy write out each word!
Students in Ms. Wells' class earned a glow day! They let their learning glow by using highlighters to write, wearing glow sticks and neon colors!
Mr. Blaydon and Ms. Atwater's classes got together to learn about the veterans in our students' families. It was very informative and eye-opening to hear what branches our family members have served in and what their stories are. We made cards to deliver to them to show our gratitude. We are thankful to our veterans and active service members.
Third grade students are having fun using their addition, subtraction, and multiplication knowledge to play 24 Challenge.
Safety of all students and staff is a top priority at Tawanka, so we have strict safety procedures in place. A reminder of the following:
Building Entry: All visitors must scan their driver's license or state issued ID at the kiosk in the front vestibule and wait for entry. This is required at every visit, or access will be denied.
Early Dismissals: Please notify the teacher if your child will be picked up early. If being picked up by someone other than a parent/guardian, please specify who will be picking up your child. Students will only be released to individuals listed on the emergency card, but the office must be notified prior to pick-up. Students must be signed out in the main office. Again, driver's license or state issued ID is required to pick up a student. We strongly encourage early dismissals be no later than 3:00 pm.
All applications will need to be completed online. Registration does not open until August 31st. For more information, please click here: https://www.neshaminy.org/domain/71
