It’s our third week….already! Routines and procedures are very well established due to a great community of learners and staff.
If your child is still not eating lunch, please let your child’s teacher know so that this can be passed along to lunch staff. It takes awhile for our youngest learners to get used to the lunchroom and we want to make sure we are aware so we can provide extra TLC as necessary. We add on extra time as needed. Lunch is important…so please keep us posted.
We kick off the week with PICTURE DAY! You will see the final results of the photos in late October. A retake day will be scheduled for those who are absent or need another session. Photos will be taken in the library.
Tuesday of this week is National Constitution Day — an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the writing of the Constitution. Each classroom will discuss this historical document on Tuesday in a way that is appropriate to the age group/grade.
We also have another PIZZA NIGHT. This week…MARCOS. When you order your family pizza, provide a teacher name. The class with the most pizza’s ordered under the teacher name will earn a pizza lunch on Marcos. A portion of all profits goes back to our school PTC — and this money goes toward funding family activities. Our first Pizza Night was with JET’s. Winning class: MRS. WALENTA’s 4th Graders.
At the end of the week, we kick off our one and only PTC all school fundraiser: THE Trek for Tech Tools WALK-A-THON. The Walk-a-thon takes place on September 26. Each student is asked to raise money (asking friends and family to donate money for laps walked at school) with this money funding all of our events this year. The events are run and managed by parents with the goal of supporting the school/family relationship and supporting learning in the classroom. Prizes are awarded to top earners at each grade and individual awards. Details for this will be arriving home soon. Watch your child’s backpack…blog posts and emails. This is our single most important fundraiser…and your donations are needed and appreciated!
Have a great week!
