April is here and we are anticipating all of the fun activities that come with spring, as well as some more outdoor recess!

We are happy to share our new blog with you, thanks to the work of our Instructional Technology Coach, Marc Eckert. Thanks also to Melanie B. from Mrs. Fluger’s class who made our new spring header in art class! There are a few great changes that come with this blog besides how nice it looks!

There is a Google calendar (see calendar tab on top) with posted school events. The events that came out in the weekly blast will be posted here. If you have a Google calendar on your phone or computer you can add this one to it.

The blog feed is also posting to Twitter and Facebook so you can follow us there if you are on these sites more often.

As you know, we are taking state tests this week and students have been working hard to do their best. We have had very few late students these days and even fewer absences, which we thank you for! Make-ups will take place Friday, April 4th through Tuesday, April 8th for students who were absent.

The Student Advisory Council collected 1600 non-perishable food items for a local food pantry. Thanks so much for your support of this worthy cause. The food pantry was very appreciative and a representative will be coming to thank our students personally at an upcoming assembly. Coming next- Caps for Kids day will be on April 11th.

We are getting ready to garden! The fourth grade garden is ready to get started and we need parent volunteers. As at TZE, we are looking for parents to work with classes outside in the garden about once a week. We have posted the times that each class is hoping to garden. (see previous post) If you can help out, please let us know! You can email pklika@socsd.org or call the main office.

Have a wonderful weekend, and happy April!

Sincerely,

Karen Ramirez and Sheila Beglin
