Remember the Lost and Found

Your child just might get their clothing returned if there is a LAST NAME on the label.  The racks are filling up with clothing.

Tissue Boxes for the Library

Please save your empty tissue boxes to help keep the shelves organized.

A New Lost and Found

Picture of the organized lost and found.  Clothes are hung on racks

Be sure to label your children's clothing and lunch boxes.  
Jackets that are needed in the morning are quickly shed during recess, and forgotten during line up. Remind your child to check the lost and found which is found in the hallway between the cafeteria and the gym.  Very few of these items had a name in them!

Welcome to our 2016-2017 School Year!

Tj Staff standing at the front door

Summer has zipped by and we are excited to finish our final preparations before opening the doors for the 2016-2017 school year. We welcome our new principal, Mr. Swanson, our new teachers and staff, and look forward to seeing our new and returning students on Tuesday, September 6th.  The doors will open at 8:35am and school starts at 8:50am.

Back To School informational fliers will be available for pick-up in the classrooms on "Meet the Teacher" day on Friday, September 2, from 9:00-10:00am.  Doors will open at 8:55.  Please exit promptly so we can continue our preparations for Tuesdays' first day of classes.   We will have over 800 students at TJ this year, and if you are able to walk, bicycle, or car pool for the event, it should reduce the parking crunch.
