Good Evening TJ Families and welcome to another edition of TJ Family News!

First we would like to let you know, as we have had lots of questions about it, we are currently exploring how we will consistently communicate with families this year.  We are currently not planning on doing weekly phone calls as the answer rate on these calls last year was very low.  Our current plan is to communicate through these emails, the school web page, and Facebook posts.  We welcome your feedback as we look to continue a strong school-home partnership.    

This past week our Patriots began their baseline reading assessments with our 4th and 5th grade students and let me tell you, they are rocking them.  These will continue over the next week as our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade Patriots complete their PALs assessment.  If you are curious about your Patriots assessment data, we welcome you to come out to our "Data Date Night" on Thursday September 19th.  At this event our teachers will be presenting and answering questions about each of the assessments your Patriot has taken or will be taking including MAP, PALs, DSA, VKRP,  SOLs and more.  We will be providing childcare in the cafeteria that evening including feeding your Patriots dinner.  There will also be a PTA meeting that evening so please come out and join us to learn more about our assessments and your student's data.  We believe this event will help everyone be on the same page about our Patriot's strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to reach their potential.

As a reminder schools will be close this Monday, Sept. 2nd in observance of labor day.  We will start back on Tuesday, Sept. 3rd with a resource day 2.

In terms of events this week, we will be having a crazy Green and Gold day this coming Friday, September 6th.  We look forward to seeing our Patriots decked out in our LCPS colors! 

We hope everyone has a great week,

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