Week of February 11

Ms. Harris is looking for Kindergarten and 1st Grade students who are interested in performing on March 7th at 6:45 PM for Specials Night. If your child is interested in taking part in the performance please fill out the survey below. Because the performance space is small, Ms. Harris will only be able to take a limited number of students. Performance spots will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. No after school rehearsals are required because students are learning the music during specials time.

 

You will receive a confirmation email with more details. If Ms. Harris is not able to place your student in the performance, your child will be placed on a waiting list. Please note, that filling out this survey does not guarantee your child a spot in the performance.

Reminder about Absences and Tardies

ABSENCES/ATTENDANCE (From the Teasley Handbook)
Teasley’s instructional day begins at 7:50 a.m. Students may arrive no earlier than 7:20 a.m. The school calendar should be given priority when scheduling vacations. Student attendance is one of the indicators on which Georgia Public Schools are
graded. Any student with six or more absences, whether excused or unexcused, negatively effects Teasley’s score. Written excuses must be submitted for all absences within three days of the absence, and must include the child’s name, teacher, date (s) of absence, reason, and parent’s signature. Absences with no documentation will be recorded as unexcused. A doctor’s statement verifying illness for all absences may be required in the case of excessive absences.
