Welcome to the TJS PTOPresident's Message - 9/25/17
Happy Fall! I hope you all enjoyed Back to School Night last week. It can be overwhelming, so if you feel you missed any PTO info, click on over to our webpage for all pertinent info.
Logo Wear Sale is happening too. There are some really great new items this year that we think your kids will really like. Click here for more info on how to order.
We could still use lunch/recess volunteers! Please sign up here.
The PTO is one of many parent organizations in the district. There is also the Madison Music & Arts (MMA), Parents & Professionals of Exceptional Children (PPEC) and the Madison Education Foundation (MEF). Check them out to see who they are, and all the good they do for our kids, across all grades.
Be on the lookout for a copy of the TJS Directory making its way home with your children today (one per family)! For families with multiple children, the directory is distributed with the older sibling (or one sibling in the case of same aged multiples).
The next Board of Ed meeting is Tuesday, September 26 at 7:30 pm at the Madison High School Media Center.
Picture Day with Country Side Studios of Madison is coming up on September 28th. Order forms are not distributed prior to that day. You will receive proofs and then choose what you wish to purchase. If you are interested in sibling photos on Picture Day, please sign up.
On October 12, at 7:30 pm in the Jaguar Jungle, the TJS PTO presents What is Anxiety?, a presentation by Carmen Vasto, licensed professional counselor. Carmen will talk about what anxiety is and how it applies to elementary school-aged children. Topics that will be discussed include the impact of social media on anxiety, bullying, and peer socialization. Parents will learn ways to talk to their children about common stressors and warning signs to look for regarding anxiety in children. In addition, they have an opportunity to participate in a question and answer portion at the end of the presentation. We hope to see you there.
The October Board of Ed meeting will be on Tuesday, October 17th at 7:30 pm in the MHS Media Center.
On October 18, the 5th grade heads off to their team building field trip to Camp Bernie. The PTO is proud to sponsor this longstanding tradition.
October 19 is the next Superintendent Session, from 7-8 pm at Madison High School (specific location TBD). This is a great opportunity to be a part of the conversation of things in our district.
October 27 at 3:30 pm is Mini Mudder, a fun obstacle course race (and PTO fundraiser) for kids!!! You can register here.
And, of course, don’t miss out on the Halloween festivities on October 31. Schedule of events that day will be coming from Mrs. Stager as we get closer. It’s always a super fun day at Torey J!!
If you haven't had a moment to pay your PTO dues, you can still do so online. Your dues help us to continue to add more amazing events and experiences, like those listed above, to our children's year!
