Happy 1st day of fall!


Next week is spirit week! To prepare for our TIGER WALK on Friday we will be keeping with our pirate theme on spirit days: Tuesday – eyepatch day, Wednesday - pirate beard or mustache, Thursday – pirate hat/bandana, and Friday – class t-shirt with gym shoes. We are the ALL STARS so on Friday students may wear any additional sports-themed accessories for the Tiger Walk such as baseball caps, eye black (appropriately applied), sport socks, pennants, pom–poms, etc.


For Tiger Walk, our room parent sent an email with additional information and a request for popsicles and bottled water. We are still in need of these items. Please reply all if you can donate either of these items.


You may send Tiger Walk donations to school or you can donate online with the Get Movin’ Crew. Our class is currently in 17th place with only 36% of our students registered on the Get Movin site. Your participation is greatly appreciated as we try to reach the goal of $750 so we can soak our administrators! Attached is the original Tiger Walk letter if you need additional information.


Please be sure you are checking Power School regularly. It is your child’s report card on a daily basis. Paper reports are not being sent home. The 9 weeks ends on Friday, October 6. All missing work must be completed prior to that day.


Our field trip to the Collierville square is quickly approaching. Please make sure to send in the permission slip! Although chaperones are not needed, you are invited to eat lunch with your student on the square at 12:15 on October 19th.  


Thank you to those that have volunteered to attend BizTown! We currently have 11 signed up to help. If you have turned in a form to volunteer, you are able to attend! We needed a minimum of 11 volunteers, but we can have up to 22 so there is still room for others if you are still interested. 


Jerry Pollatto, an author, will be visiting Tara Oaks on November 1. Order forms went home with students if you are interested in pre-ordering a signed book.
