Important Reminders
Write From the Beginning and Beyond Tour
There is a person who the district is working with that will be walking around with me tomorrow, Monday, April 4th to look at evidence of writing around the building and seeing how we have been implementing Write From the Beginning and Beyond strategies.  We will be around between 8:00-9:30am.  I may ask some of you to share journals as we are walking around or writing samples of anything you have used with your kiddos showcasing the strategies.  Nothing to have to be prepped for, but if you have some good examples of anchor charts or writing you did, please have handy! 

TCE Parent Volunteer Breakfast
We will have our annual parent volunteer luncheon in the library on April 7th.  Everyone please make sure you have each signed up for something to help support all of our parents who do so much for the school!  

Engineering Extravaganza Night
We will be having our TCE Engineering Extravaganza Night on April 21st from 5:30-7:00pm.  I am attaching the stations from last year below.  Please try to vary the stations up and have new challenges for the kiddos and parents!  You can use some of the same materials, but definitely ensure there are problems or challenges within it, not just playing with the materials since they are familiar with our maker station materials now.  
Only two people per station please, click here to sign up! 

TCE Texan Tours with Wichita Falls
We have two schools who have contacted me about bringing their staff to the building after the principals came for their visit.  (Truly a compliment that the administrators want to bring their staff and are taking the funds and time to come and see the learning at TCE!)
We will have these visitors on April 14th and April 22nd!

April Birthdays
Brett Shelby- 7th
Laci Garza - 11th
Morgan Peccarelli- 22nd

Final Quotes
Thinking about the spring semester. . .this can be a time when our kiddos start getting a bit bouncy and we ourselves are getting a bit ready for the summer.  Please remember, that this is time of year to buckle down, bring back that focus,  and keep on trucking ahead to do whatever we can to finish the year strong with our kiddos!  Remember why we do what we do and how we want others to know TCE is the best of the best in education and learning!
