We are having our fall book fair starting next week on Monday at 7:30am and it will go through Friday at 3:30pm.  Each day the book fair will be open before and after school for shopping as well as during the school day for learners.  They may bring their money or you can check in at the office before school or after school to come and shop with them!
They will also be open during our Special Friend's Day on Friday if their special friend would like to swing by!

Bring on the 2016-2017 School Year!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  We are so excited to start this year off and it has been such a wonderful time getting to know each of your kiddos and your families during these first two weeks back!

Thank you to everyone that was able to come to our curriculum night last night and a shout out to all of our amazing educators who shared out information in their presentations!  Our educators will also have this information available for you on their websites and blogs, in case you need to refer back to information or missed last night!

Here is the video connection from our front office giving you a few extra reminders for this year.  Also, I am attaching our letter we sent out for safety reminders in order for review throughout the year!  

Holiday on Monday, September 5th
Don't forget we will not have school on Monday due to Labor Day.  Have a safe and happy three day weekend!

Write-A Check
We have kicked off our TCE Write-A-Check campaign in order to collect donations to help support our campus this year with resources, technology tools, professional learning for educators, and items to help make our school environment absolutely amazing for our learners!  Please consider donating to our campus this year!  The campaign will run from September 1st-September 30th for this year and you can drop donations off to the front office.  

PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) Meeting
Our first PTO meeting for the year will be on September 8th at 8:15am here at TCE.  I will be sharing some information on Title I as well as some of the goals for our campus this year for our learners.  Our next PTO meeting will be on October 6th at 6:00pm if you would like to mark you calendar.  If you haven't signed up for the TCE PTO yet, please try to do so as it is a great way to stay in touch with all of the volunteering opportunities as well as updates happening throughout the year!  
Here is info on how to join the PTO:

Picture Day
We will be having our individual picture day for kiddos on Thursday, September 8th.  A form should have gone home with your child and if you need another form, please check with your teacher or the front office.  This is a great way to capture your child's elementary school years!
