Our spring band, chorus, and orchestra concert (4th and 5th graders) is Wednesday, May 31st at 7:00 P.M. at Madison High School.
If you haven't heard, I would like to extend a HUGE congratulations to Torey J.'s Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Tina Smith, Grade 5. Truly, a well deserved honor for an outstanding educator!
We had an amazing visit from authors/illustrators Michelle Knudsen and Matt Phelan this week!! Thanks to the PTO for arranging such an engaging day for the students.
Important Message from the PTO:
The annual Jamboree carnival is set for June 2 and it is quickly approaching (JUST 1 WEEK AWAY!!!). This is the school's second largest fundraiser and we hope to make it lots of fun for the children and families. One part of the carnival is a basket raffle, which are baskets filled with prizes for the kids. We need your help!! Please consider donating a basket with kid appropriate prizes. Get together with neighbors or friends to pick a theme and donate a group basket. If you have new toys that you are looking to get rid of, please consider donating them to the basket raffle. If you prefer, you can make a monetary donation and we will create a basket in your name.
Please contact Colleen or Cecilia at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss basket theme ideas. All donations can be dropped of to Colleen Bohensky’s house, 23 Rosemont Avenue, with the attached donation sheet. (We will be home for Memorial Day Weekend…. so feel free to drop off any time). For monetary donations, you can give Colleen or Cecelia a check written to "TJS PTO” with memo “Jamboree Basket Raffle” or put it in an envelope marked "Jamboree basket raffle" and send it to school.
