Important Updates (New Info)

Teaching Teams for 2018-2019: In the 2018-2019 school year we will have four sections of grade 5, and five sections of grade 4. This shift has led to some changes in teams for next school year. In the 5th grade, Mrs. Eschbach and Ms. Vedder will continue to partner on a two teacher team, while Mrs. Kidwell and Ms. Hays teach in self contained classrooms. The 4th grade team will return Mrs. Porterfield, Mrs. Rekstis, and Mrs. McClellan, and they will be joined by Mrs. Decker and Mrs. Wright. Miss May will be joining the 3rd grade team, while Mrs. Masters will join the 2nd grade team. We are looking forward to a great year!

Tremont 4t h Grade Gallery Hop - The 4t h grade classes will be displaying their artwork at our 7th annual Tremont Gallery Hop on Thursday, May 10 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. This year we will be located in the 3r d grade Hall and Media Center. The Art Opening will include several of the student’s masterpieces from the year and will be on display for all to see. There will be live entertainment by 4t h and 5t h grade students, and a 4t h /5t h grade choir performance at 8pm. Refreshments will be served. You will get to speak with curators at each gallery, who are the artists themselves, to learn about their inspirations and thought process behind each of their pieces. All are invited to join us at the Tremont Gallery Hop. 

Device check-in information The Personalized Learning page on our website, www.uaschools.org/personalizedlearning, has been updated to include a basic overview and dates for device check-in by grade levels.

Important Reminders (from previous newsletters--but still important!)

World Literature Fair
Tremont is excited to be holding a World Literature Fair on Friday, April 27th . Students will be hearing stories in languages other than English to understand and empathize what students feel like who come from another country. Students will also learn about cultural traditions and artifacts from other countries. We are looking for families who would be willing to come in and read a book in a language other than English. If you are not able to come in, but would be willing to lend your book to the event, we would greatly appreciate it. We are also looking for traditional clothing and artifacts from countries around the world. We would love to learn about your culture! Please fill out the google form below if you are able to help.

Mural Volunteers needed: Exciting news! Our students K-5 will be working with world renowned artist Phillip Martin to paint a mural at Tremont. We are in need of parent volunteers to assist with both supervision and painting. Please read more about this great opportunity using the link below.

Visitor Procedures - As part of our continuous effort to review and update our safety protocols, we will be using a standard identification procedure for visitors to our school. This began on Monday, February 26, 2018. As parents/guardians and visitors come to our building, they will be greeted by a friendly voice from the office through the speaker outside the main door. Visitors will be expected to identify themselves and the reason for their visit prior to being “buzzed” in to the building. Every visitor must sign in in the office and wear a visitor sticker or volunteer ID badge while he/she is in the building. Before leaving the building, every visitor must sign out in the office.

Report a Student Safety Concern - To file an anonymous report regarding a safety or bullying concern, please fill out the Speak Up! online form; click “Other” for a safety concern other than bullying.
