We've been having such a fun-filled time over the past few weeks.  Our concert season continued with a wonderful Grade 4 Winter Concert and our students had such a beautiful PTA Reflections Ceremony.  Congratulations to all of our student participants and winners!


Our TJL Schoolwide Spelling Bee was a huge success!  Students in grades 4 and 5 completed classroom competitions and then the classroom winners participated in our schoolwide bee.  Congratulations to all of our participants and a special congratulations to Lia for becoming our building champion!

We had an awesome kick-off for PARP and our students did an amazing job with getting their reading minutes in.  Our theme this year was "Reading Gives Us All the Feels" and the kick-off ceremony incorporated an Emoji Pictionary game show!  Thank you to our amazing PTA for all of their efforts in coordinating this event for us!  It was so much fun!



We had our first Character Counts breakfast a few weeks ago!  Congratulations to all of our students who were nominated for demonstrating good citizenship and strong character!  We hope that our Character Counts winners enjoyed their celebratory breakfast!  We couldn't be more proud of you!

Throughout the month of February, we highlighted P.S. I Love You Day, which was on Friday, February 10th.  The theme for this year was "Love All Your Chapters".  Our students participated in an activity where they were able to highlight something that they loved about themselves when they are at home, in school and when participating in a hobby or sport. 




Our No Place for Hate committee meetings have been going great!  We are so fortunate to have 47 students on this committee as well as many parents and staff members!  We have begun implementing our first three projects and are in the final stages of planning our fourth building-wide project for the year.  We're on our way to becoming a Gold Star School for our 6th year in a row!




We are happy to share that our construction process is moving along nicely and our Main Entrance is OPEN!  Please see the information below regarding this exciting update!
