  • GLOW-Gram: T1 & 3 Families (8/21/2017)

    • We had a GREAT Science focused day! Many students watched the eclipse using safety approved viewing glasses & close supervision, while other students viewed the eclipse on the NASA Live Feed shown in the gym.  It was an honor for us to share this experience with them!!  
    • There is a PTA meeting tonight, 8/21, at 6:00. Come learn how our students GLOW every day!  GLOW is a part of our PBIS program? If you don’t know what GLOW or PBIS stand for, come on out tonight to learn!
    • Tracks 3 & 4 have their Curriculum Night tomorrow night, 8/22/2017: 6:30-7:05 Session 1 & 7:10-7:40 Repeat of Session
    • This year’s main PTA fundraiser is the Firefly Fun Run! It’s a 9-day Boosterthon program that kicks off with a Pep Rally for Tracks 1 & 3 today, August 21. Families will then gather pledges for every lap their student(s) runs (maximum 35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Tracks 1 & 3 Firefly Fun Run on August 29th at 9:30

    During the Boosterthon week, students will also experience an amazing character theme, CASTLE QUEST!, an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters. We are fortunate to have two members of the Boosterthon team leading our Castle Quest!, so also expect to hear great stories about Tyler & Sallie from Boosterthon.

    With our PTA's goal of raising $18,000 for playground upgrades, student and family engagement activities, and other opportunities, here are 4 steps you can take to help! 

    1. Ask your child to show you their “Pledge Crown” packet with details about this FUNdraiser.
    2. Register on COMon 8/21 (Tracks 1 & 3).
    3. Connect to sponsors—friends and family who can sponsor your student(s).

    >> If you get a pledge, you get to wear PJs on Wednesday!!

    >> The class with the most pledges TOMORROW, 8/22, gets to each lunch with the Boosterthon Team J 

    1. Cheer on your child! Come to the Fun Runs on 8/28 (Tracks 1 & 3) at 9:30.

    GLOWingly yours, Kim Short, principal
