Timber Creek Elementary May 2014 Tiger Tails Document Transcript

  • 1. Timber Creek Families It is hard to believe that the end of the school year is already here. PTA has been able to accomplish some fantastic goals benefiting our children this year thanks to you and your continued support of Timber Creek. Here are just a few examples of what we did this year to help the students and staff of Timber Creek; Renewal of the subscriptions to BookFlix, FreedomFlix, and TrueFlix. Hosted the kick off meeting for Watch Dogs. Purchased coolers for the school Approved teacher requests Were able to provide snacks for all 3rd , 4th and 5th graders during STAAR testing Coordinate a fantastic Fall Festival and Bake Off Bought wonderful programs to Timber Creek including the BMX team Provide funding for grade level activities Completed funding of the LEF Scholarship for a graduating Marcus Senior who attended Timber Creek Ele- mentary And so much more! None of this would be possible without your support and volunteerism. So thank you! Before the school year ends we have a couple of fantastic events for you to participate in. May 5 – 9 is Timber Creek Staff appreciation week. This is a great opportunity to show the staff of Timber Creek how much we love them and appreciate all the time and effort they spend with our students. All the details are on the flyer in this issue of Tiger Tales. We will also be holding a half price book fair during the school days of May 20 – 22, and as a bonus during the talent show on the evening of the 22nd . While we may be saying goodbye to the 2013-2014 year, we are already working on preparations for the new school year. If you would like to volunteer for the upcoming school year, please do not hesitate to contact us. Included in this issue are the 2014-2015 PTA membership form and T-shirt Order forms, as well as information about ordering supply kits. Don’t forget to save your Box Tops over the summer break. The money that we receive from the Box Tops pays for the subscriptions to Scholastic’s Online Literacy Program, BookFlix and Scholastic’s Online Resource, TrueFlix. We also are collecting Campbell’s Labels for Education and Coke Rewards, so be sure to save those as well. To the 5th graders, we wish you all the best in middle school. Don’t forget to come by Timber Creek every now and then to visit your favorite teachers and other staff members. To all the rest of you, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable summer break.

Even though this is my first year at Timber Creek, I am realizing that elementary school life this time of year is similar on all campuses. The days go by quickly, and the calendar is full of events. We are planning our end-of-year awards assemblies and parties, and PE is planning for an active Field Day. Our annual Talent Show is fast approaching and many of our students are being recognized on and off campus for an abundance of activities and contributions. There is a place for everyone to help, so please don’t hesitate to get involved! You may have noticed some brightly colored t-shirts being awarded to students lately. These are in recognition of our Kids with Character program. Each classroom is able to recognize a student that exemplifies the character trait being highlighted. The character traits include being trustworthy, respectful, responsible, fair, caring, and good citizenship. It is a delight to see the faces of those students chosen by their class as they wear their t-shirts with pride! It was also my pleasure to attend Texas Woman’s University last week for the First Annual Earth Week Poster Show. Our teachers, Mrs. McMahan and Mrs. Harycki submitted student work that was chosen for the show! What an accomplishment for these talented 1st grade students. Congratulations to Jiro, Waylon, Lynden, Sean, Alexis, and Newton! What a wonder- ful compliment for our school to be represented. Lastly, please help your child stay organized these last few weeks. The activities at this time of year often involve bringing items and signing permission slips, along with regular reading and homework assignments. Packing up backpacks the night before often helps the mornings get off to a stress free start! Thank you for partnering with us. Sincerely, Dr. Sharon Heier Proud Principal of Timber Creek Elementary Principal’s Corner
