    TJS PTO Update:

     

    The TJS PTO and teachers are excited to offer an additional ASE class for this winter. The Fine Motor Fun class is being offered to students in first and second grades on Wednesdays after school.

     

    Fine Motor Fun!

    This club will reinforce correct formation of letters based on the Wilson’s Fundations handwriting, which is taught in the Kindergarten and first grade classrooms.  Fine and gross motor skills will be incorporated throughout by using pencils, markers, shaving cream, chalk, whole arm movements and many more fun supplies practicing those letters!  Please see the attachment below to register. This class will begin on Wednesday, January 16th. Registration forms and checks are due no later than Tuesday, January 15th. If you have any questions, please contact Roberta Rickli rmrickli@gmail.com
