Interested in Volunteering, But Don't Know How You Can Help . . .
Tildenville Elementary has a "Parent Teacher Workroom" (located between the Kindergarten hall and the cafeteria) where parents are encouraged to come in during school hours (as long as they are Additions Approved - you can apply here and help with various projects the teachers and staff need assistance with.

* Some projects are as easy as stapling papers together (and might only require 30 minutes), while others might be helping create a wall display (and take an hour or two).

* All of the projects are placed in the workroom where you can choose what you are most comfortable helping with, and are free to help for as little or as long as you can.

* There is also a small table with books to read and color in should you have a little one with you.

Garden Club Volunteers Needed!
*Garden Club help is needed on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:15am to 8:45am. We are looking for parents to help with the children in finding gloves, getting tools, and cleaning up afterwards.

Upcoming No Early Release Wednesdays
Please note these four upcoming Wednesdays as there will be no early dismissal for students. These dates will be regular length school days with three in a row occurring during May:
  • Wednesday, April 3
  • Wednesday, May 1
  • Wednesday, May 8
  • Wednesday, May 15
Parent Survey Closes Friday
Thank you to those parents and guardians who have completed our 2019 parent survey. The survey will be taken down on Friday, March 15 so if you have a child at Tildenville, kindly take a few minutes to share your opinions. Your feedback is of great value to our school improvement efforts.

Have a safe and relaxing spring break Tigers. I am looking forward to seeing everyone back at school on Monday, March 25th for a successful start to the final nine weeks of 2018-2019!
