Terra Centre Family Newsletter 4-26-24

Earth Day

5th graders in Mrs. Fairchild's class created nature assemblages inspired by artist Andy Goldsworthy to celebrate Earth Day!

TC Families,

This week, we celebrated Earth Week, and each day there was a different focus on environmental stewardship. Special thanks to Ms. Grove, our Get2Green lead. The Eco-Club students and the entire school have worked hard all year on various initiatives to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Ms. Grove is also facilitating the 4-H Embryology Project at Terra Centre. Very soon we will have eggs hatching all over the school! 

We have several things happening next week:

  • SOL testing begins Wednesday, May 1, for students in grades 3-6. Students should get a good night's sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and be on time to school. Please see below for the complete SOL testing schedule.
  • The PTA Variety Show is Thursday, May 2, at 6:30 in the Terra Centre cafeteria. 
  • Friday, May 3, is a teacher workday and there is no school for students.

Please scroll down for important information and upcoming events.

Have a great weekend!
