Tustumena Elementary School

December 4, 2018

December, here we come!

Well, we survived our first delayed start to kick off December. We have several things coming up and a lot to pack into the next few weeks before winter break.

This Friday is the drawing for the CASH RAFFLE! This is a fundraiser for our PTO which helps pay for field trips and other student activities. There are still tickets on sale in the school office if you haven't purchased yours already.

The PTO is also offering students a Box Tops store on December 19th. PTO is asking for donations of gently used toys to facilitate this "store".

All school library books are in the library on Friday, December 14th. Prizes will be awarded, starting Monday, December 17th, to all students who have their books turned in or paid for if they are lost.

We wanted to share with you about the newest member of the Tustumena Elementary School - our very own Library Gecko! Unfortunately, she came to us without a name and the students are participating in a naming contest. The last day to enter names is this Friday. We will then ask school staff to pick the top 10 names. Afterwards, students will vote for their favorite of those 10 names. Stay tuned for the revealing of the Gecko's new name!
