Another student skiing

      Every year TJES has a local science fair, and it's never too early for students and parents to be planning for the next Science Fair. TJES staff has access to books about Science Fair projects, ask if you'd like ideas for the TJES 2005 Science Fair.

Happy students

      On February, 21, Grades 4, 5, 6. 7. & 8 traveled to Huff Hills for their annual TJES ski trip. We understand a good time was had by all as indicated by the pictures. Ask our students about their experience with skiing!

      We encourage all TJES students and their families to attend the February Parent Breakfast to be held February 9th from 7:45 to 8:15 at the UTTC Cafeteria. We hope to see you there.

Student making shapes

      Saturday Shake-Up was held on January 29th. Students meet at the TJES Elementary School at 10:00 AM for a fun filled day. The younger students began activities by listening to The Greedy Triangle, which was about shapes and designs. Students then made their own shapes and designs with marshmallows, straws, and pretzels. Ask our students about some of the designs they made. After students made designs on paper, they then began painting their designs onto their very own soccer balls! While the paint dried, students had a sack lunch and then traveled to Midway Lanes to bowl. It was reported a good time was had by all!
