Character Word of the Month

Empathy & Compassion

Empathy means being able to understand how someone else is feeling, even when you aren't in the same situation. Empathy is important because it can help people build connections, regulate emotions, and promote helping others. Empathy can also prevent bullying and help us make new friends.

Compassion means we care about others, treat them with kindness, and feel a strong desire to help people in need. Compassion is empathy in action. Compassion might look like giving a hug, making a card, or saying something kind to help a friend or family member who is feeling sad or upset.

Fall Break

We hope all of our Bulldog families enjoy and safe and wonderful break, October 9th-13th. October 16th will be a teacher planning day, and our students will return to school on Tuesday, October 17th.

Congratulations, Ms. Lawrence!
Everyday is a great day of learning on the hill!

TES Title 1 Meeting

Please join us for our Title 1 Meeting on Wednesday, October 4th at 9:00 in the TES conference room. We will also post an informational video on Class Dojo and Facebook for those unable to join us in person. We will be discussing school goals, budget, and resources. As always, we welcome your feedback as we continually strive for growth and improvement in order to provide the very best educational experiences for our students.

International Dot Day is a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration. The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage. Our students had the best time celebrating Dot Day at TES!

Grandparents Night

Come celebrate our wonderful grandparents with us on Tuesday, October 24th!

Please drop by between 4:00-6:00 to visit our Book Fair, make a fall craft, and enjoy a tasty treat with your student.
