I hope that you all had a fun and relaxing Spring Break!  We are excited to have students back on campus.  There is a lot of learning still left to do.  Having said that, please make it a priority to have students present and on time so they are not missing out on lessons.  Being in school every day means your child won’t miss out on learning.  Try to schedule appointments and family trips outside of school hours.  If your child asks to stay home “just because,” remind him/her of what he/she will miss, such as reading group, PE, math, etc. Explain that he/she can be absent only if he/she is sick or if there’s a family emergency. 
 
March was full of so many fun and engaging activities; Preschoolers worked on STEM projects designed to catch leprechauns, Kindergarten students were busy writing research papers regarding the Iditarod, First Grade  wrapped up their math module on Ordering and Comparing Length Measurements as Numbers, Second Grade is continuing with their Roots of Empathy curriculum, Third Grade is working hard on their writing, Fourth Grade visited OSU and got see several science station in motion, and fifth grade hosted a Pi challenge- where staff and students alike where challenged to memorize a pi fact or as many of this irregular number’s digits as they could.   Also, May West and her amazing group of volunteers helped to organize another fantastic Project Fair!  Students worked hard to display their learning and passion related to a specific project.  I also want to thank parents for helping their children participate in this enriching experience.  These were just a few of the engaging and deep learning opportunities that happened at TES in March, we look forward to even more in April. 
Speaking of April we have a lot going on.  On Friday, April 5th we will have a Safe Touch Parent meeting in the library from 3:00-3:30.  Miranda will be joining us and available to answer any questions that you may have.  The curriculum will also be available for you to review.  April 8th – April 12th is Volunteer Appreciation Week.  Tuesday morning we will be passing out thank you goodie bags.  Stop by and get yours!  I also want to thank you for your time and energy.  Thank you for your work with TPA, for organizing events, for checking in/out library books, volunteering in our classrooms, and helping with lost and found.  You do so much for our students and our staff, that words cannot accurately express my appreciation for you!  Our parent and family volunteers are one of the reasons that Territorial is a great place to be and learn.
 
We are also extremely excited for our upcoming Talent Show on April 18 at JCHS.  Steph van Hecke has put in countless hours helping our students prepare for this fun annual event.  We look forward to seeing you there.  April will wrap up with a visit from a well-known Artist in Resident, Kelly Thibodeaux, to teach students how to play the fiddle.  Amy Burrows, our music teacher, has already instructed students on basic rhythm, timing, and dynamics.  To that, students will spend a week acquiring additional fiddle skills. We will have a culminating school-wide recital on May 3rd, more information to come.
 
Finally, in April and May we will be taking our State and District Assessments.  It is very important that students come to school well rested, with a good breakfast, and confident.  Students and staff have worked hard this year, and we are excited for students to show what they have learned.  Teachers will be communicating specific dates with you so that you can be mindful of when your child is testing.  Thank you for helping with the success of this process.  If you wish to opt your child out of State testing the form is available on our website. 
 
Warm Regards,
