Awareness Day

On Monday, May 20th we are joining Toll Gate Elementary School for an Awareness Day. Both schools have a large variety of students with a range of disabilities and medical conditions. Our mission is awareness and education. We are planning a day full of activities to illustrate differences among all students, yet also how all students share many similarities. This day is very similar to last year’s Awareness event, due to positive feedback received from students, staff, and community members who helped with this event. Each classroom will be attending two thirty minute sessions on this day. We are asking each grade level to wear their assigned color that day to spread awareness.

2019 shirt colors

4th-Purple- Epilepsy and ADD

5th-Grey- Diabetes and Cognitive disabilities

6th-Green- Spina Bifida and Childhood Strokes

We are selling grade level youth t-shirts if they would like to purchase one to wear that day. They are $10 each. The shirts are blue, purple, yellow, orange ,and white with black or white writing. All orders are due April 24th. Checks may be made payable to TGE PTO. Order forms were sent home with your students.

Save the date to volunteer for Field Day

Save The Date! This year’s TGMS field day will be on May 22. The PTO will need lots of volunteers for this event. Session 1 will be all 6th grade classes plus Mrs Kemmerer’s homeroom. Session 2 will be all remaining 5th grade classes and 4th grade gateway classes. Session 1 volunteers will be needed from 9:00-12:00. Session 2 volunteers will be needed from 12:15-3:15. More details and a sign up genius will be sent out closer to the date.

Thank you
