Week of January 7, 2019

Dear Families,

We believe that children learn best through first-hand experiences with people, materials and places; that is why trips are such an important part of our school’s curriculum.  Some trips, like ice skating may not be so much about content learning, but about giving children opportunities to have different kinds of life experiences.  Many of our children learn to ice skate by going on these trips twice each year.  This Friday, Hannah, Catlin, Shaniqua & Chelsea, Lindsey & Olivia, Jane and Joanne & Sofia’s classes go skating.  Remember to check-out our skate swap in the PTA room (left-hand side).  You can drop off a pair of skates your child has outgrown and/or pick up a pair that fits.  Open to all!

Wellness in the Schools (WITS) cooking lab is coming to TNS and Star Academy this week.  WITS is a national nonprofit that partners with schools to teach kids healthy habits to learn

and live better.  Students will be learning about beans and making hummus together.

Lastly,  it’s flu season.  To help keep our community as healthy as possible, never send your child to school with fever.  Please also remember that in order to return to school, your child must be must be fever-free for 24 hours (“fever-free means” without the help of Tylenol, Motrin, etc.).  Thank you!

Mark your calendars:

  • The Grants Committee meets Tuesday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • The Wellness Committee meets Wednesday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • The Diversity Committee meets Thursday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

Have a great week,
