Hello TES Families,
LOOK HOW MUCH WE HAVE EARNED THIS YEAR (AS OF APRIL 29, 2013)!!
Do you have a TARGET RED CARD? Did you know that the Target Red Card gives you 5% off your purchases and gives an additional 1% to our school? It's easy to get one - SEE BELOW:
HELP OUR SCHOOL!!!
Did you know there’s an easy way to help us raise money for our school—for books, activities, reading programs and anything else that can use extra funding? It’s called Take Charge of Education®, and it’s helping our school right now.
Here’s how it works:
Apply for a Target REDcard debit or credit card at checkout the next time you shop (a voided personal check is needed for the debit card). There is no charge to apply. You will save 5% off your bill at every purchase and 1% of all your purchases will go to the school of your choice (TES!). Schools receive a check from The Target Corporation every September.
Once you sign up it’s important to designate our school. You can call 1-800-316-6142 or go online at Target.com/tcoe
Follow the steps listed below:
• Click on ﬁnd a school under the heading Already Have a REDcard?
• Enter city, state and school name
• Click select this school and enter your REDcard information
If you already have a REDcard go to Target.com/tcoe and make sure you have selected TES as your school. You can check on our school’s donation progress by entering your REDcard number under the heading Already Enrolled?
Let friends and family know that they can designate Templeton Elementary School to receive funds too!
Use your REDcard whenever you shop!!!!
The more people we involve, the more the program works for our school. If you’re already participating, thank you!
It all adds up!!!

PARKING / DROP OFF / SAFETY REMINDERS
Templeton Elementary School Families:
We would like to remind you of some safety concerns and procedures, specifically regarding drop off, traffic, and parking. Thank you to so many of you who help keep our children and community safe by legally parking and by following the established guidelines listed below:
DROP OFF / PICK UP TIMES: Please do not park along curbs painted red. The weather is usually nice, and we suggest families park legally in parking spaces or on neighboring streets and walk to school, when possible. Please remember that drivers must remain in their cars if parked along the drop off zone (white curbs). If there is no spot available at the drop off zone, please carefully drive through and loop around the neighborhood. If you have conversations with staff or other families, please try not to do this while your car is in the drop off zone. When traffic backs up to Old County Rd., the police department has notified us that citations may be given out. If we work together on this, we can all be safe and happy.
We do have yard duty supervision in the morning starting at 7:30 and in the afternoon until 3:15 which allows parents of 1st and 2nd graders to avoid the traffic by dropping off a bit earlier or picking up a few minutes later. We have created some recommended times for staggered pickups. See below:
2:35p - 1st grade parents (1:40p early release Wed.; 12:20p min day)
2:45p - 2nd grade parents (1:50p early release Wed.; 12:30p min day)
2:50p - Afternoon Kindergarten parents (1:30p early release Wed.)
PLAY AREAS / DROP OFF: Playground / structure areas, the tricycle area, and the TK playground when not supervised by a TES staff member, are not areas that we can allow children to play. This has been a noted concern during the drop off time for PM kindergarten.
Safety is of utmost importance to all of us here at TES. We so appreciate your cooperation. Thanks, families, for all you do!!

A Week in Preview
The TES staff wrote for and received a competitive and prestigious grant for Early Intervention for School Success (EISS) for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years. The grant includes beginning of the year training for the entire teaching staff, coaching support throughout the year, and an Administrative Symposium. Six of our teachers recently attended a Research Institute 3 day Professional Development (March 14-16) which included many sessions on proven educational strategies for our youngest learners. We are excited to have this team of teachers return and share what they've learned with their students and with the rest of the TES staff!
