THE's Weekly Eblast Message

November 15, 2015

Principal Message


We had a very successful week! Our Veterans Day Parade was a big hit while honoring 91 Veterans for their service. Thank you to all of our veterans, students, families, staff, and PTA for making this an event to remember. We are so grateful for the freedom we have because of our brave men and women. You can find pictures on our school webpage and facebook as well as the district facebook page. It was a pleasure to be part of such a great event.

We also had a very successful and chilly Field Day! Thank you to our specials teachers and parent volunteers for making this an event the kids will remember. It was great fun and made for an exciting Friday!

This is our final week before we take some time off for family and gratitude. We have big plans this week, so please tune into the calendar events for more information below.

Thank you,

Tara Bailey

Toy Drive - Starting November 16 we will begin our toy drive for East Terrell Hills Elementary. This will run till December 4th. This is a great way for all of us to synergize and help out the kids at our sister school. Please turn in new, unwrapped toys to our collection box in the entryway foyer. Appropriate gifts should be for the elementary school age, for boys or girls. Some examples- books (English and Spanish), stuffed animals and board games. We know that anything from the heart will be a wonderful treat for these sweet kids. Thanks so much for helping us with this fun drive! -Partners in PTA chairs, Ana Warmke and Sara Holliday
