Friendly Parents and Multilingual Speakers Needed...
Join us on the Welcoming Committee for the 2017-2018 school year! Our goal is to reach out to families who are new to the district, answer their questions, and ease their transition to the school and community. We connect new families with committee members who have children of similar ages, and we hold New Family Coffees once per month for those who are able to come. In addition, multilingual committee members are available to assist new families in their native language. We are preparing now for the new families who will be arriving this summer and fall. For more info or to join the committee, contact Jen Marsala at jenmarsala@verizon.net.

News from the Nurse for Next Year- 
Medication in School: End of Year Procedure 
Does your child have any medication in the nurse's office?  The District Medication Policy (School Board Policy 5143) prohibits students from carrying prescription or nonprescription medications to and from school.
A parent or guardian must pick up any remaining medication from the nurse's office by the last student day. The policy specifies that any medications which remain after the last day of school must be destroyed.
NOTE: Epinephrine auto injectors, asthma medications and diabetic supplies may be sent home with your child with parent permission as per district medication policy.
The medication policy also requires that a new doctor's order be written each year in order for a child to receive prescription medications in school. A copy of the medication form can be downloaded from the district's web page, found under " Student Health Services"
Don't forget to stop at the Nurse's Office to pick up any remaining medications by Wednesday June 14.
Lost and Found is OVERFLOWING!
If you are missing a sweatshirt, jacket, lunch box or even a textbook, please check the Lost and Found located in the hallway to the Large Gym. Valuables such as phones and jewelry are in the Main Office. Items not claimed by the end of the school year will be donated to local charities.

Yearbooks Available-
If you haven't purchased your yearbook yet, now is the time! Copies are limited and will be available for purchase until supplies run out. The cost is $30.00 Checks MUST be made payable to TEMS for in-school orders. See Mrs. Matilla in Room 204 with any questions.
