Hello Twin Creeks Families,

 

 

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! And I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the sunny days.  Last week we welcomed our 3rd -5th grade hybrid students back on campus.  Shout out to all of our hybrid teachers for their planning and preparation to make sure that all of our students felt safe and welcomed!  Our students were thrilled to be back at Twin Creeks!  I loved hearing their laughter and conversations.

 

Hybrid families, on Friday your child came home with an orange placard with your student’s name, grade, and teacher.  In order to streamline pick up please display this orange paper in your car window at dismissal so we can quickly identify students’ families.

 

On Friday March 19th our Twin Creeks PTA will be hosting a virtual Student Showcase spotlighting our talented students.  Please look for an upcoming email with all of the details on how to register to participate and how to see the Student Showcase.

 

Character Trait of the Month – Citizenship

 

7 Ways to Be a Good Citizen

 

 

Care about your community, state, and country.  Obey the laws and rules.

Improve something in your home or neighborhood.

Take the time to learn about how your government works.

Involve yourself by becoming a leader at school or in your community.

Zero in on something that needs fixing and work with others to do the job.

Encourage your parents and other adults you know to vote.

Never forget to show respect for people, animals, plants and property.

 

The first requisite of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his own weight.

Looking for the Good!    

 

Mrs. Krishnan has done a fabulous job of giving individual attention to each child in the class.  Remote schooling has been hard, but she has been able to connect with my son on every level, encouraging him to better because she understands him. Very grateful to have her in this school year with remote classes.

 

Angelyn Brown:  I would like to give a huge shout out to Angelyn Brown who has been providing weekly tech tips in our newsletter. Thank you for sharing cool things you are learning with us.

 

Tracy Fernandez, our school nurse, for all of her support and guidance during the last few months to make sure we are prepared for the return of our students and staff.  Her knowledge and expertise are appreciated! 

 

Our theme this year is Look for the Good!  Let’s continue to look for the good and highlight and recognize this GOOD by completing this form Look for the Good

 

Have a wonderful week.   Roar with Pride!
