TJ Updates

It was great to see everyone (kids and adults) enjoying themselves on St. Patrick's Day. Although our kindergartners used the engineering design process to create some very clever traps, in appears that no one was able to capture the leprechaun! St. Patrick's Day was one of those days that represented what is so wonderful about the T.J. staff - the ability to remember to have fun even when things seem stressful and overwhelming. These are the days that both students and staff will look back and remember.

I hope you are continuing to enjoy the activities for our Reading Incentive. Please remind students that their Reading Logs are due to Wednesday. We will be having a closing assembly at 2:00 on Friday. It's hard to believe that March is coming to an end (especially given the weather!).

Please remember that we are having Spring Pictures this Thursday.

Here are some pictures from last week...
