Truman Elementary

Game On!

News from Mrs. Jackson

Happy Friday, Truman families! Hope you are enjoying the cooler weather! I know we have had some great opportunities to be outside this week for both learning and playing.

We will be out of school next Thursday, Oct. 8, and Friday, Oct. 9, for Fall Break. I won't send a news blast next week unless something important comes my way that isn't included in this SMORE.

An important upcoming date will be October 15. This will be individual picture day at Truman. Photos will be taken for the yearbook, and we do have a make-up date scheduled for December 2. If you happened to mark your child as "no photo" in directory information at enrollment, and you still want your child pictured in the yearbook, please call the school and let us know. Virtual students may come to the school between 8:00-9:30 that day for pictures as well! Envelopes to order pictures will come home Monday, October 5.

October will be a busy month with the Truman Jogathon, Red Ribbon Week, and more! Fall Parties will look different, as parents are not able to be in the building at this time. Watch for information from individual teachers about how parties will look this year, and also about procedures for sending individually packaged food items to school.

Red Ribbon Week Information

Mrs. Welborn sent her counselor news yesterday, which contained great information about Red Ribbon Week, Share Your Shelf, support for families, and great guidance opportunities. Here is a link in case you missed it:

Just to make sure you have this in multiple locations, here is the flyer about dress-up days!

Look for more information soon about Jogathon!

It will look a bit different this year, as students will collect donations online through Classes will run individually during PE times on October 29 & 30. Students will wear their free Monster Dash t-shirt Thursday, and they can wear costumes for the run on Friday! If you have not submitted the size for your student, please fill out THIS FORM.

Virtual students will have two options, and these include completing laps virtually on October 28, or coming to school to join a grade level class on October 29 or 30. More information will be coming that shows schedules and times to choose from.

Thursday Folders

We have placed an order for "official" Thursday folders, but until these are here, in you should be receiving graded papers on Thursdays. Keep in mind that much of the learning has happened remotely, so there may not be quite as many as normal. All flyers and advertisements can be found in PeachJar, so see the link below for active community events.
