Dear Tashua Families,

As we leave for a three day weekend, I hope you are able to spend some quality time with family. Happy Easter to those of you who will be celebrating! For those of you who are concluding your Passover celebrations, I hope you had a wonderful holiday too!

At this time of year, it is important to help our children to learn how to express gratitude. Did you know, individuals who make it a priority to express gratitude tend to be happier and more successful? Please see the link below from greatschools. org.


Thank you to all of you who participated in our Bingo event last Friday. I know a good time was had by all! Again, a huge thank you goes out to Mrs. Diaz and Mrs. Chhablani for organizing this event. We are now looking forward to our PTSA Council sponsored virtual visit from children’s author Josh Funk on Thursday April 29th!

Everyone continues to do a great job following our COVID-19 migration strategies of social distancing, mask wearing and washing hands! We thank you for making this a priority and working together to keep the members of our school community strong and healthy. Please be reminded, it is essential for students who are not feeling well to stay home for the day and rest so they will hopefully feel better the next day.

Next week are excited to be celebrating our School Spirit Week. Each day has a theme related event with students dressing up and participating in school-wide events. Please pay close attention to our plans for each day that are listed below in our Upcoming Events section.

Finally, we thank you for your continued support and partnership in ensuring the success and happiness of our students. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, suggestions or good news to share.

Warm regards,

Mrs. Neumeyer
