From the Principal...............

March certainly started out Like a Lion so well hope the saying is right and it goes out Like a Lamb. We are ready for spring weather! February was a fun filled month that went by fast! The student enjoyed the second Celebration of the year with the 3rd graders modeling how to be Safe, Respectful and Responsible. We were very sad that the weather caused the cancellation of the Blues in the School assembly PTA sponsored. But we are looking forward to the Old Creamery and Opera Iowa in March. The students continue to amaze us with their outstanding progress. Kindergarten students are writing sentences that look like 1st grade writing. Several third graders have made it into the Million Word Club by reading over 1 million words! First and second graders are working hard on their reading, writing and math also. All that practice makes great readers and math thinkers! Thanks for all of the support you provide your child(ren) in being the best student they can be.

Mrs. Sharp

From Mrs. Woollums


The TJ kids and families did an amazing job raising money for this worthwhile cause. We raised more than $4,500 this year which is an increase over last year. Thank you all!! The top 25 students who raised the most money will have fun using silly string on Mrs. Woollums, Mrs. Sharp and a few volunteer teachers.
