Student Council Elections

Posted by: | September 30, 2014 | No Comment |

This year we have several students interested in representing our class in the Tackan Student Council. Therefore we will need to have a class election.

If you are interested, please prepare a short but persuasive speech to give to our class this Friday. We will then all use anonymous ballots to choose the three people that we believe will represent our class the best!

Good luck to all of you!

Trending Books

Posted by: | September 15, 2014 | 2 Comments |

Your child is coming home today with their current “Trending Book”.

This is the book that they have selected for themselves to read for the month of September.

It should go back and forth from school to home EVERY day. This is the book they must use for their 80 minutes of reading a week. They also brought home a Homework Reading Log. The log is due back on Mondays. This is also a book that they will use to read in class as well.

**Due to the rainy forcast for tomorrow, our field day is being postponed to Friday.**

Please remember to….

Apply sunscreen before coming to school.

Bring only a labled lunch and a seperate, labeled water bottle to school with you. (There will be water stations to fill water bottles up throughout the morning.) NO BACKPACKS are needed!

Wear sneakers and a yellow shirt.

Students will come to school their normal way. Once at Tackan things will be a little different. Kindergarten will disembark to have a fun day at Tackan. All other students will remain on the bus and travel over to the Middle School. If your child is normally a walker or goes to Before-School Care, we will place them onto a bus for the trip to Great Hollow. Students are not permitted to be driven straight to the middle school by parents!

I will be meeting up with the class under the yellow balloons for attendence and then the fun will begin from there!!!!
