PJ Movie Night Friday, January 25 @ 6:00

Put on your pajamas and bring your blankets to our first Pajama Movie Night for Tular families in Bobcat Hall on Friday, January 25.  The whole family is welcome, or dads can come with the kids and give moms some time to themselves.  This is not a drop-off event.  Parents need to stay.  Put it on your calendars now.  Light concessions will be on sale to help raise money for our PTO.


Message from our PTO

We hope that everyone has a wonderful winter break.  Our next meeting will be Thursday, Jan 17, at 6:00 pm at CVCYC.  At this PTO meeting Colin Matheson, district tech coach, will be presenting the district’s plan to teach our students about digital citizenship as well as ask for parent feedback on how the district can support parents at home with tech use.  This will be a great time to provide the district with feedback about the role of technology at school.

Change in 5th Grade Science Fair

We are trying something new with our 5th grade science fair this year.  Rather than having the students do experiments at home, we are going to offer students the choice of four different experiments to do here at school.  They will then be going through the scientific process here at school and presenting during the day.  This way our students can go through this meaningful experience and you do not have to do anything at home with it.   We are hoping this will be more developmentally appropriate for our students, and we hope they will walk away with a good foundation in the scientific method and confidence in how to conduct a science experiment.
