Announcement from the office

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!!

Happy first day of December!!

Remember, next week is FIELD TRIP WEEK! We have a field trip on Tuesday AND Wednesday! We are very excited, as you can imagine 🙂

Tuesday is our trip to the Cobb County Safety Village. Kids should wear their Teasley T-shirts (it would be great if they wore their blue class ones so we all match!!) and tennis shoes. Girls should have their hair in a low ponytail or down because they have to put a helmet on. We eat lunch there. If you are sending a sack lunch, make sure everything is able to be thrown away. The bag, spoons, water bottle, etc. We do not take anything out of the cafe there because we would have to carry it around the rest of the day! So we throw it all out. This is a super fun field trip!!!

Wednesday is our trip to the ballet. Students can dress up or wear their normal standard attire. If students dress up, the outfit must be school appropriate. That means shoulders must be covered, dresses must be knee length, etc.

 

We are excited to announce our 3rd annual Barnes and Noble Night on Tuesday, December 5th 4:00-7:00 pm! Please join us for all the fun!

  • Teacher and administrator read-alouds
  • Gift wrapping by teachers
  • Chorus performance
  • Art show

Barnes and Noble will donate a percentage of the sales to our school! Please know that if you are unable to attend, you can still shop online with the Teasley Bookfair ID! 

At our class holiday party, we will be doing a book exchange. A note went home on Friday with the details. Please send in a new or gently-used age appropriate wrapped book to be swapped during our holiday party. Barnes and Noble night would be a great time to grab a book, get it wrapped, and support Teasley! Please email me if you have any questions or need any support. 🙂

Field Trips: We happen to have TWO FIELD TRIPS IN A ROW coming up in December!! (Planned by Cobb County…) I am sending home a bright orange paper attached to a white one for parents to sign. I must have the entire paper signed and brought back in order for your child to participate. One is to the Safety Village and the other is to the Nutcracker. Both are super fun!! There are details about lunches, what to wear, etc. on the front so be sure to read it.

Holiday Hearts:

Dear Teasley Families,

It’s time again for the annual “Holiday Heart Program” at Teasley.  Each year our students, staff and community members support families in need during the holiday season.  We are asking you to buy gifts cards from places such as Wal-mart, Target, Publix, Kroger or QT in any denomination.  Please write the amount on the card. These cards will be shared with other Teasley families during the holidays.

Please place your gift card in an envelope marked “Holiday Hearts” and return it to Teasley by Wednesday, December 13th.  All gift cards should be placed in one of the black payment boxes or the safe.

Thank you for your support and generosity!

Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes filled with gifts and delivers them to children in need around the world.  Every one of these boxes is an opportunity to show love and kindness.  Please help us fill 2 shoeboxes, one for a girl and one for a boy, with small items such as toys, dress up items, sports toys, school supplies and anything else that  you think a 5 year old to 9 year old would enjoy!  Please no liquids or food!  Please send in your items by this Friday, November 17th.
