Kona Ice Teacher Appreciation

Celebrating staff appreciation with Kona Ice this week!

TC Families,

Thank you to all of our families and our PTA for making Staff Appreciation Week so amazing!  We truly appreciated the delicious luncheon from our kindergarten families, all of the snacks and treats from the PTA, and the flowers, cards, and tokens of appreciation from our students.

Next week, we will be celebrating our school volunteers on Tuesday, May 14th at 5:30 in the cafeteria.  Our final PTA meeting of the year will follow at 6:00.  Please join us to vote on our 2024-2025 PTA Board.

Have a magnificent weekend!

Rebecca Gidoni, Principal

Optional Parent Input - 2024-2025 Class Placements

As we begin planning for the upcoming school year, our staff collaborates regarding student placements.  A variety of factors such as student personalities, friendships, and academic abilities are considered as we create our new classes.  Other factors impacting the decision-making process of student class assignments are new student enrollments and teachers moving to a new assignment.     

Terra Centre families may assist in this process by sharing insights. Please note the following when providing information. We do not accept requests for specific teachers for the upcoming grade placement.  This includes hints that reference specific teachers.  We cannot guarantee friend requests nor exceptions for other students whereby there may be a conflict. We do our best to create a positive learning year for your child.

Please provide your input by submitting this form as it will ensure we have your request.  Please do not email us additional information.  Completion of the form is optional. However, the deadline for any correspondence is May 31st at 4 PM. Thank you for your input.
