TJ Updates

I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend.

The PTA is planning an exciting opportunity for our students.... a Science Fair. The Science Fair will be held on Tuesday, November 17 in the evening. The PTA has reached out to the STEM Initiative at the University of Rochester to help with the Science Fair. To generate ideas and excitement for the Science Fair, the U of R students from the STEM Initiative will be coming to T. J. for a demonstration assembly on Friday, October 16. I am working on the final details of the assembly and will get those details to you as soon as possible. Students and families will then work outside of school to complete their projects.

Just a reminder that Grade Level Meetings start this week. Please refer to schedule handed out a previous staff meeting.

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks...
