TES Wildcat News
A Note from Administration, Mrs. Molly King
March has arrived and brings with it the promise of Spring! We are excited to see the academic growth our students are showing.
Our cookie dough fundraiser ends March 10th. This fundraiser is important for our school. It will provide needed funds to purchase a sign identifying our school, additional Chromebooks, and meet the everyday needs of the school. We appreciate your help in making this fundraiser a success. Students will have the opportunity to purchase shaved ice treats from Kona Ice on March 8th. March 17th is an early dismissal day for students. Buses will load at 11:15; car riders will begin loading immediately after. If your student is going home a way that is different than their usual way, please remember to send a note to the teacher.
On March 21st we will begin our state standardized test, the ACAP test. This test measures how each of our students in grades 2 - 6 is growing and achieving in academic subjects. It is a very important assessment for our school. Please help your student be successful by making sure he/she gets a good night's sleep, giving him/her a nutritious breakfast, and sending him/her to school with a word of encouragement. We will give sections of the ACAP test on March 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. We will also give sections of the ACAP on March 28th and 30th.
We value our parents and appreciate your help to ensure your student is successful at school.

TES requires that every car rider have a name tag displayed clearly so the child's name can be called to dismiss. If you do not have a tag, you will be directed to the office to verify information. This is a safety precaution, not an inconvenience. If you need another tag, please contact Ms. Cheryl in the Front Office.
Any transportation changes need to be sent to school in the form of a handwritten note. The note needs to be signed and dated. Students will be sent home their normal way unless a note is provided. Emergency changes can be made by calling Ms. Cheryl in the Front Office.
Car Rider Parents: please remain in your cars so that students can learn the vehicle and the dismissal process remains safe and quick. We have a wonderful dismissal crew that will escort and make sure each student makes it to their car safely. Remember, left lane first. Right lane, second.
It's that time of year....
As time and seasons change, so does our weather. Please review/create a safety plan in the event of severe weather at home. TES has monthly drills to practice and improve (if needed) our safety plans. It's very important that you do the same with your child(ren) at home. Where do they need to go? Do you have head protection? Where's the nearest tornado shelter?
Be sure to enter your child's name at checkout so they will get credit for the sale!
