News from School

February 13, 2022

As the weather fluctuates over the next few weeks, stay alert to school updates and be sure students are coming to school with hats, gloves, and warm coats. If you have a need for any of these items, please let us know.

Need to Know Info...

Science Club & Science Fair: Does your child like science? Do they like to conduct experiments? Then don’t miss out on the fun. The date for the annual Science Fair is March 10. Information packets are available on the school website. Students wanting guidance in preparing for the Science Fair may participate in the Science Club. The club will meet after school on Tuesdays until 4:00. Attendence at all meetings is not required. Mrs. Lester will be presenting new information about preparing for the Science Fair at each meeting. Permission slips will be available on our school website or from Mrs. Lester.

Spring Family Night - Mark your calendars....Save the date... Plan to join us for Spring Family Night on March 10th from 5:30-7:30 PM. Student art work and science fair projects will be on display. We'll also host free night of fun with Bingo for Books! Plan to play several games of bingo to win books and other prizes! Refreshments will be provided.

IREAD-3/ILEARN Testing: Students in grade 3 will participate in IREAD-3 testing on March 7-9. We will test in the morning, so please make every effort to be at school on time and avoid making appointments on these days. ILEARN testing for grades 3-8 will run between April 18-May 13. A more detailed schedule for ILEARN will be available closer to the start of that testing window.

PreK/Kindergarten Round Up: We will host two identical Round Up sessions on March 15 (6pm) and March 16 (9am). We will share info about our programs and our school. Parents will also begin the enrollment process, so you will not miss any important back-to-school details this spring. Staffing decisions are made based on our enrollment, so it is always helpful to know as early as possible who is joining our TES family. Please spread the word and plan to join us if you have a student ready to head to school this fall!
