Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

May 3, 2016

So much to do, so little time.

As you can see from the "up coming events," May is jam packed with events. One of the unusual events is today's concert. Our Pre-K through 3rd grade students will be having a concert today at 2pm. We have day time concerts sometimes in order to assure all students get a chance to perform. Not all families can make it back to school in the evenings and so some are left out. Our intermediate grade concert will be tomorrow, May 4, at 6:00pm. I hope to see you at one or both of the concerts.

One other day time event is our field day on the last day of school. If you can volunteer to run a station for the kids during field day, please contact Mr. Halsey 260-1345, and he will sign you up.

It is difficult to keep kids focused during the last few days of school but the Tustumena staff do an outstanding job of keeping everyone working right up to the last bell. Please help out by communicating the importance of finishing to your children. Thank you.

Health Tip from Mrs. Abel

“Taking kids grocery shopping is a great way to teach functional math and literacy (e.g. how to budget, compare costs, use coupons, write a list, and read labels). The grocery store also provides us with the chance to practice and model social skills and self-control, to learn about different foods and cultures, and to discuss advertising, labeling and making healthy choices.”
