Good Afternoon Patriot Families and welcome to another edition of TJ Family News.

We had an amazing week at TJ as we started our 5C Focus Mondays with lots of collaboration and creativity. In addition several of our new buddy classes met to help create a family bond between our Grade 3-5 Patriots and their Grade K-2 counterparts. We are positive these relationships will help both groups grow. As a faculty and staff, we met this week to take a deeper dive into each student's data to ensure that each of our Patriots get what they need to continue to move along their unique Path to Success.

With data in mind, we are incredibly excited about our first ever Data Date Night this Thursday. We will have two sessions, each with four, 15 minute rotations to help you, our families, understand the assessments your student has or will complete and what their scores really mean. Session 1 will run from 5 to 6 while Session 2 will run from 6:15 to 7:15. In between the sessions there will be a PTA meeting. There will be child care available in the cafeteria with food and activities provided for the kiddos. In addition this week, we will have Constitution Day events on Tuesday in each classroom and as a quick reminder, Family Fun Fitness Night forms are due back this Friday.

As you saw in Mr. Straley's weekly announcements this past Friday, September has been designated as Attendance Awareness Month across the division. So be sure to help your Patriots establish good attendance habits, as research shows that as few as two absences per month can cause a decline in school performance. And as a reminder, each month we will have our attendance raffle to promote good school attendance. Any Patriot that misses one or fewer days is eligible to be in the raffle and could win prizes such as family gift cards or Google Tablets. Lastly, we want to remind everyone that tomorrow is a staff development day for Team LCPS so schools will not be in session. We look forward to seeing each our Patriots back in action bright and early Tuesday morning. Until then, enjoy the rest of your three day weekend and together We Are TJES.

From our heart to yours,

Mrs. Byers, Mr. Cleaver, and Mrs. Snyder
