Reading Bowl Team

The Teasley Reading Bowl Team is looking for new members!

It requires a great amount of reading as well as question writing in preparation for competition. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the library blog or email Ms. Crosby at

Field Trip Lunch

Today, students received a yellow form regarding lunch for the an upcoming field trip:

The 3rd Grade will be going on a field trip to the Carter Center on May 8 & 9 (our class will be going on one of those days).  We are going to have lunch at the Varsity after visiting the Carter Center.  We will be sending home permission forms very soon.  However, we need to order the vouchers for the lunch at the Varsity.  We need these forms back by FRIDAY, April 13 to know if your child will be ordering a lunch from the Varsity.  No money is due at this time- we just need a count for how many vouchers to purchase.  The lunch per student will be $10.  If your child does not order a lunch, he/she should bring one from home that day. Here are the choices if your child will be purchasing a lunch from the Varsity.  It is a combo meal so each child can choose one entrée, one side, and one beverage. 
ENTRÉE:  Naked dog (plain hot dog), Chili-dog, Hamburger, or Cheeseburger

SIDE:  onion ring or French fry

Drink:  medium soft drink, chocolate milk, OR frosted orange

Child’s Name: ___________________________________

Please check and return by Friday, 4/13 if your child is interested in purchasing a lunch from the Varsity for our Field Trip ($10 will be due at a later time)- If we do not have the form back by 4/13, your child will not be able to order a lunch from the Varsity.  Please do not send money now.

______ My child will be ordering a lunch from the Varsity on May 8 or May 9 ($10 will be paid at a later time)

Visitors during testing: We hope that all of our families had a great Spring Break!!  We look forward to seeing our students on Monday!!  A reminder that the GA Milestone Assessment begins for our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders on Tuesday, April 10th.  Because we will have multiple testing sessions going in the building and will be testing the majority of the day, we ask that we not have visitors for lunch on Tuesday through Thursday, April 10 – 12 as well as Monday & Tuesday, April 16th & 17th.  Our lunch and specials schedule is different on those days and we will have testing going on all around the building.  For that reason, we ask that we not have visitors on those days. Thank you for your understanding!!
