Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

March 16, 2015

Welcome to the end of the race,

Every year I am amazed by how fast the year goes, especially the last quarter. I am sure this year will not be an exception.

To get us started I would like to notify/remind you of a few events that are coming in the near future:

  • Permission slips will be coming home soon for third quarter Lynx Track field trips.
  • Sixth Grade Parent Night at Skyview is tomorrow night, March 17th at 6:30pm.
  • Report cards to come home March 23rd.
  • Dessert Bingo is on April 2, 6-8pm.
  • No School on April 3rd.

Also, the health screenings are complete for each student's height and weight. If you have any questions about this, you can contact our nurses office at 260-1372.

Another reminder is our AMP (state testing) window is coming up the first week of April. This assessment window is open for the entire month of April and is electronic. We will be trying our best to get it done the first couple of weeks so there will be time for make ups or other unforeseen events such as technical difficulties.

In closing this week's newsletter, I would like to thank you for your understanding of my absence the week before Spring Break. My family suffered the loss of my sister and I felt the need to be with them all. It was not a good time for me to be gone, but the Tustumena Staff carried on without me seamlessly. "Thank you," to all of them and especially Joy Jones for taking over some of my responsibilities while I was gone.
