Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

January 15, 2019

Dear Tustumena Family

Now that the report cards are home we are looking forward to meeting with you for the second Parent/Teacher conferences coming up in February. Please contact your child’s teacher if you don’t remember the appointment time.

Don't forget there is no school this Monday, January 21st.

It is also time to nominate teachers for the BP Outstanding Teacher award. You will find a link later in this newsletter if you wish to recognize a teacher. All teacher that are nominated are rewarded a nomination certificate and one teacher from the entire district is awarded a cash prize. Thank you for considering nominating a great teacher.

Our “Lost and Found” is a considerably smaller pile this year. Thank you for checking with your child about their clothes and printing their names in all their coats, gloves, hats, etc. The hardest time of the year is coming up. In late winter/early spring.

We have the district Forensics match coming up on March 2, 2019. If any of you would like to volunteer for the event, we could certainly use your support. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Anthony or Ms. Gossett for signing up.

Many of the new Tustumena shirts have arrived. Some are still on back order. If you didn't order any and would like to, you may place an order by THIS FRIDAY. You may contact Mrs. Anthony in the office for an order form.

Also, I want to share with you a new School Board Policy on student nutrition. I will paste a link to this policy for you to review.

Thank you.

Doug Hayman
