Week of 9/19 Updates

Exciting news! We are planning a spring field trip to JA Biztown! This is a first for Tara Oaks and we are really excited about it! In order to offset the cost, we will be doing a few things to fundraise. The first event will be this Thursday at the Tailgate at Tara. We will be selling MemPops for $4 for 1 or $7 for 2. If your child is available to help us advertise and sell the pops, that would be great. Our team will be working from 5-6pm. We will need students to walk around with signs, and help pass out the pops (teachers will handle the money). We will split the hour into three shifts (5:00-5:20, 5:20-5:40, and 5:40-6:00). If your child is available to “work” one of those time slots, please reply and let me know which time.

MemPops will also be offered for 5th graders to purchase as a treat on Friday. The price for those will be $3 a pop.

Also, just a heads up, our fall “See Memphis” field trip is scheduled for November 10th. More information to come. Thanks!

Some other weekly reminders:
1. Don’t forget to RSVP to Moments with Mom. The invitation went home last week.
2. Tiger Walk is September 30th! All information went home last week!
3. Fall picture orders are due September 28th.
4. Scholastic orders are due this Friday, September 23. You can send your order in with your student or order online.
5. Wild Rumpus Reading Logs are due on Wednesday, October 5th! If your students are wanting to participate in the kickball game, they were to read 5 fiction and 5 non-fiction books and write a well-written summary of each book. This is not required nor will it be for a grade. Please encourage your student to be reading!
6. Make sure you are checking Powerschool for interim grades. We were informed on Friday that the school WILL be sending home report cards.
