ERB TESTING FOR GRADES 2 - 4
Students in Grades 2, 3 and 4 will participate in the Comprehensive Testing Program published by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB), as part of T/E's assessment program. Testing is scheduled for October 6 - 8 for Grades 2 and 3, and October 6 - 9 for Grade 4. Make-ups will be given the week of October 12. It is important to be on time to school on test days.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS START OCTOBER 5
The After School Clubs, sponsored by the HSA, will begin this week (from October 5 through December 11). They take place from 3:30 - 4:30pm after school and pick up is at the Carpool Circle (unless given another location). Note: the teachers and school have a master list of all the students participating so parents do not need to write a note for their children to attend an After School Club. Do not forget to pack an extra snack.

WALKING CLUB DURING RECESS STARTS OCTOBER 6
The Walking Club starts on October 6 and takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 6 weeks during recess. Students who choose to participate can earn prizes. Each child will get 1 card punch per lap walked around the playground area. The more punches on the card, the faster it is to win a prize. Come help promote health and fitness by volunteering to oversee the club. This is a great way to see your child at school and get some exercise.

Shift 1: 11:20am - 12:30pm for Grades 1 - 2
