Good Evening TJ Family,

TeamTJES would like to wish Our Louisa Lions the best of luck today as they play against Salem High School! We are proud of Our fellow Lions! This message is coming out early today so we do not interfere with the big game today!

Here is what’s going on at TJ this week:

Make up visits for the PTA Santa Shop will be held Monday morning. This is for any student who missed the opportunity to purchase gifts for their family last week. The PTA will also open the Santa Shop on Thursday evening before the Kindergarten/First grade holiday program.

Tomorrow, Monday, December 11th, we will celebrate the 80th day of school. Come dressed like we did in the 80’s and get your pictures taken with various 80’s props outside the TJ Cafe.

Thursday is a big day for TJES:
PreK, kindergarten, and 5th grades will have their holiday lunches at the following time:
PreK 10:55 - 11:40 
5th grade: 11:45 - 12:30 
Kindergarten: 12:35 - 1:20 

The TJ PTA will host their fall fundraiser celebration! Students who earned the limo ride to lunch and/or the glow party will participate.

Our kindergarten and first graders will perform their Winter Program "The Holiday Alphabet" at 6:30 PM in the TJ gym. Come out for a great show as Our Patriots show off their hard work and talent!

On Friday, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade class Spelling Bee Champions will compete for the chance to represent TJ at the TeamLCPS District Wide Spelling Bee on January 29th at LCMS. Each grade level will compete at the following times in the TJ Library:

3rd grade: 10:30 - 11:15
4th grade: 9:30 - 10:15
5th grade: 8:30 - 9:15

Be sure to join us for Our Second Annual Patriot Palooza, the Holiday Edition, December 2017. Starting on Monday we will have a daily theme to help us get into the holiday spirit!

School wide Meeting

We realize the weather is getting significantly colder however the TJ bus drivers have asked that you be mindful having your child out at the bus stop on time each morning. When the bus has to wait for students to come out of their homes or cars, this puts the bus behind schedule for later stops. Our bus drivers try very hard to stick to their schedules. We want Our Patriots to stay warm and dry and get to school safely and in a timely manner. We appreciate your support in this.

Parents, this is an exciting time of the year for many of Our Patriots, the holiday season and snow create lots of energy. Please take the time to read with your child nightly and remind them of your expectations for their learning.

Whether you are traveling to Williamsburg, sitting at home staying warm, or spending quality time with your family, we hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thank you for your time and attention this evening.

We Believe, One Team, One Dream
Dr. C.
