OUR TIOGUE PTA NEEDS YOU
Please consider joining our Tiogue PTA! Our NEXT PTA MEETING IS SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19th AT 6:30pm. Membership numbers are very low for this time of the year. It is never too late to join!
Our PTA helps to organize most of our special events at the school and handles the fundraising for items and programs that do not come from our District budget. For example, our PTA helped to pay for our field trip buses on Friday, paid for our new walkie-talkies (part of our safety plan initiative), and also helps to fund our school assemblies this year.
Ms. Wolk is in need of Library Volunteers
You must have a current BCI on file with the School Dept. in order to help.
What's Happening at Tiogue Elementary School, Home of the Timberwolves
Over the next few months we will be refreshing our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention Systems) at Tiogue. We are creating new Brave Bucks, redesigning the process, and helping the students to conceptualize our 3 basic tenets: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe!
We will be working to simplify our language and our teaching around these 3 expectations. We will continue to have our weekly Brave Buck Raffle, where students get recognized for their good behavior and their contributions to our school community.
Our PBIS, All School Assembly, will be held on Monday, October 22nd. The R.O.A.R. Show will be at Tiogue!
