Blue Shirt Day, October 6, 2014

Wear a BLUE SHIRT and join us to stop bullying and cyberbullying on Monday, October 6th! Every October, schools and organizations across the country join STOMP Out Bullying™ in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal is to encourage communities to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages.  We look forward to seeing our school as a “SEA OF BLUE” in the support of this anti-bullying campaign!

Back to School Night Schedule and Information
Dear Timberwolves,

I am happy to announce our upcoming Back to School Night session dates/times for this school year. 

Monday, Sept 29 at 6:30 pm will be the 4th and 5th grade Back to School Night, Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 6:30 pm will be the  2nd and 3rd grade Back to School Night and 
Thursday, October 2 at 6:30 pm will be the kindergarten and first grade Back to School Night. 

All visitors should report directly to their child's classroom on the appropriate evening as described above.  

In addition, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade teachers are asking their students to attend the Back to School Night Sessions with their parents.  

(Kindergarten, Fourth and Fifth grade teachers are asking their students to stay home that evening unless you hear otherwise from your child's specific teacher.).

I encourage families to car pool these evenings as our parking lots get filled up quickly.  You may want to schedule arriving a bit earlier in case you need to walk from a further parking spot.  Please do NOT park in the bus loop these nights. 

We look forward to seeing all our parents over these three evenings.  Thank you and have a wonderful day. 

Walk To (Before) School Day – October 8, 2014
International Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 8, 2014. Walk to School Day promotes walking as a fun, healthy habit. It also creates a cleaner environment, promotes safety, and boosts a sense of community.
Even though T. Clay Wood ES does not have any safe walking routes to school, we can still participate in Walk to School Day by walking BEFORE school to promote walking as a fun, healthy habit. All students will be walking around the school property as they arrive to T. Clay Wood on October 8, 2014.
Ms. Probus, the Physical Education teacher, will need some parent volunteers to help guide the students along the walking path. If you can help on the morning of Wednesday, October 8th, please email Ms. Probus at probuscm@pwcs.edu. Thank you!​
Diary of a Wimpy Kid #9
For those of you with Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans--you’ll be happy to hear that the next book in the series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid #9: The Long Haul, will be released on November 4, 2014. But you won’t need to make the long haul around town to track down a copy! All you have to do is pre-order your copy now, and it will be hand-delivered to your child at school on November 5. Proceeds from the sale will provide needed funds to enhance our school library.
If you would like to place a pre-order, please fill out the form below and return it with a check, made payable to TCWES, to your child’s teacher by October 17, 2014. Thank you!
