Culture Volunteers Needed
TJES invites you to join us and help provide a well rounded curriculum. We are seeking volunteers to help with our culture program for the 2012-13 school year. If you would like to share cultural activities or information, please contact the school office at 701-255-3285 x 1304. One visit we are looking forward to is from Keith Bear in the month of October. Students will listen to and work with Keith during music instruction.
Gains in Reading & Math
TJES recorded exceptional gains in reading and math this past year. Students who moved from below proficiency to proficiency increased by 30 percent in reading and 27 percent in math. This translated to near 80 percent proficiency in reading and math for grades 3-8. Congratulations! Way to go TJES students, parents and teachers.
