The students were quite busy this week with all the "Safe Schools" activities. A big thank you to Mrs. Bletcher for her hard work in organizing these programs. Additionally, the PTO brought "A Journey Through Mexico" to TJS, as part of their cultural enrichment programs. The students enjoyed learning about Mexico's history through song and dance.
Halloween is finally here! Those students choosing to dress up are encouraged to come to school in costume to enjoy the day. Costumes should be school appropriate (in-line with dress code expectations) and all hair and makeup preparation should be done prior to school. If a costume is bulky or itchy, please have your child wear clothing underneath, so that the costume can be removed easily. Students who choose to dress in costume may not bring any item to school that depicts violence such as plastic or fake weapons (swords, guns, knives, pitchforks, etc.), bloody or gory masks, or any sharp objects. Due to supervisory constraints, we cannot allow students to change into costumes during lunch periods.
If you choose to pick up your child at lunch to go home and change, the recess/lunch schedule is as follows:
Grades 1, 2 & 3: 11:20 A.M. - 12:10 P.M.
Grades K, 4, & 5: 11:55 A.M. - 12:45 P.M.
Please notify the main office/teacher in advance of picking up and sign your child out at the start of the period and return to school by the end of the period.
The costume parade will begin at 2:15 P.M. on Thursday, October 31st. All families are invited to attend. Please proceed directly to the back of the school that day. You do not need to check-in with the main office. The marching band will lead the students up the path, so we ask you assemble around the perimeter of the field. Pathways should be kept clear so that everyone can have a great view of all our little goblins. Students will re-enter the building after the parade and be dismissed at 3:15 P.M. That gives you enough time to grab a cup of coffee prior to trick-or-treating that evening! As a special incentive to get students out of bed Friday morning, we will have Pajama Day at TJS.
