I hope everyone has had a great fall break. During the week, the stalls in the kindergarten bathroom were replaced. This is part of our ongoing plan to update the school campus. On Monday, I hope our kindergarten students will enjoy the new bathroom stalls.
Tomorrow, we welcome Ms. Scalise to our staff. Lisa Scalise will be our receptionist in the afternoons. Ms. Scalise is a health aide for TUSD during the day, and she has a range of previous experience including working for the police department and 911 dispatch.
Our office will now stay open until 6:00 p.m. which means that beginning Monday, the side gate will no longer be open after dismissal. Instead, families who are picking up children from sports, tutoring, after school, or any other meeting will go through the front office. This is part of our plan to increase safety at our school. Ms. Scalise will buzz families and visitors into the office.
Finally, we have Fiesta coming up in one week! We hope you will join for some family fun. This week, Mrs. Lanik sent home an email with a sign-up for volunteering for the Fiesta. It takes everyone to make this event a success, so please consider helping to make the event great! Here is the link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/904084AABAD28A57-fiesta
