Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

February 5, 2014

Short newsletter for a short week.

Greetings Tustumena Families,

There are just a few things to remind you of this week. First, Thursday and Friday this week are Parent/Teacher conference days so the students do not come to school. We will have a full week next week, including Valentine's Day on February 14th. If you want to get an early "date night," in, we have our Mighty Meatball dinner and auction this Friday, February 7th, at 5:30. There will be lots of good food and great items for the auction. This fundraiser supports the sixth grade field trip in the spring.

Our school will be sponsoring the district-wide Forensics Match on March 1st. We are looking for volunteers to help with judging and parking so if you have some time that morning, we could certainly use your help. Just contact me at: dhayman@kpbsd.k12.ak.us and I will sign you up.

We were going to hold a Cross-Country ski race on March 1st as well, but it is not likely to happen now that the snow is looking "uncertain." We may still have a "Fun Ski" event on that day, but we will have to wait on the weather.
