First grade has been very busy retelling our favorite Dr. Seuss books. I encourage everyone to read a book at home and practice retelling it to their families. Please don’t forget to practice sight words and phonics features at home as well!

A Message from the PTO:

Hello Trevvett Tiger Parents, Grandparents & Guardians,

We appreciate all the support we received from your signing up for classroom events and parties at Back to School Night in September, however, we would like to try a new system to streamline the communication.  We ask you to “forget” what you signed up for in regards to the Valentine’s Party and to use the following Sign-Up Genius instead. This way, you know if you are the one bringing a specific item.

Every classroom is represented. Scroll to find your teacher (in alphabetical order), then sign up for what you’d like to donate to the party or to volunteer in the classroom.

All food items must be store bought and peanut-free. Number of students will be different for each class based on enrollment. Please check with your child’s teacher for an accurate student number.

Thank you for all your support in everything we do!

Your Trevvett Tigers PTO
