Wednesday Folder – Feb. 19, 2014

Happy Wednesday All!

Our 18th annual Young Writers’ Workshop will be held this Thursday, February 20th. YWW is a wonderful day on which authors, poets, playwrights, song-writers, and journalists volunteer their time to share their love of writing with our 3rd through 5th graders. If you want to be amazed by the quality of writers our kids will get to work with on their own writing skills, see the list of writers and their bios.

Our Pre-K through 2nd graders will also have a special treat that day with bilingual story teller/musician Sue Young performing for them. Sue performed for YWW 3 years ago and was a huge hit with the kids and teachers. If you would like to purchase her CD and or book, please print out the attached order form and return with a check made out to Sue Young to your child’s teacher by Thursday.

We are so lucky to have this special day of learning, inspiration and fun for our students which is supported by our teachers, administrators, and our PTA.

NOTE: Beautifcation Day is now March 1, 2014

Due to a large number of school and AISD events on the 22nd our Spring Beautification Day is now scheduled on March 1st. Bring tools, water bottles, and your smiles to this fun family friendly event. Coffee and Snacks provided. Meet in the front of THES at 8:30 a.m.
