Parent Information

Hello Tolman Families,

We hope everyone has a fantastic Spring Break.  We appreciate everyone’s support as we’ve worked our way to the final term of such a unique year.

Below are some informational items and attached is the calendar for April.

 

Class placements

We have entered the time of year where we start our processes for planning for next year’s classes.  Although class assignments won’t be finalized and announced till August, we take care to make sure we have balanced classes.  We would love to hear from you if you have any concerns or considerations regarding your child’s class placement next year.  Here is a link to the form to submit input.  We ask that input be submitted no later than April 30th to give us time to begin our process of working on next year’s classes.

Lion King Jr.

We are excited to announce that Tolman Elementary will be performing Lion King Jr. at the end of April.  We are proud of everyone’s hard work on this.  To keep with physical distancing guidelines, tickets will be limited.  Masks are also required.  More information on ticket purchasing will be distributed in the coming weeks.

Audible is offering many free audio books for our students during this time. This is a great resourse that you can share with your students. There is no log in, they don't ask for any information. Just go to the website below and your students can start listening. I tried it out this morning. Here is the original message from Audible. 

 

With all of us experiencing varying degrees of social distancing and school closures, we have created something that we hope makes our customers’ lives a little easier. At stories.audible.com, you will find hundreds of our titles available completely free. The collection has been handpicked by our editors and is a mix of stories to entertain, engage, and inform young people, ages 0–18.

These stories offer a screen-free option that we hope may help break up the day for families with students home from school.

There are selections for our listeners in English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese and Italian.

To access the free titles, just visit stories.audible.com from any web browser.

The experience is completely free – no log-ins, credit cards, or passwords required. Just click, stream and listen.

We wish you and your loved ones good health, and we hope that listening to a good story will offer some respite during these unsettling times.

All of us at Audible

BUS LOOP:  We are VERY concerned about the safety of our students aways...but we are having recurring problems in the west bus zone.  A REMINDER THAT THE BUS LOOP ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE BUILDING IS FOR BUSES ONLY.  THIS IS NOT A PICKUP AREA.  PLEASE DO NOT DIRECT YOU STUDENT TO RUN ACROSS THE BUS AREA TO ACCESS THEIR CARS.  THE BUSES ARE TALL AND ABILITY TO SEE A SMALL CHILD WHO MIGHT BE RUNNING NEXT TO THE BUS IS VERY HARD.

TOLMAN "HOUSES"

Tolman Elementary is divided into four different "houses".  These four groups meet together once a month to have different activities.

  The “Houses” are:
1.       Black – Altruismo:  unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others
2.       Red – Amistade:  Spanish, meaning friendship
3.       Green – Isibindi:  Zulu, it’s first meaning is ‘courage’ or ‘boldness’
4.       Blue – Reveur:  French, meaning dreamer

We are having “House” activities once a month.  These activities are fun and teach a social skill.  Ask your child about their “House” and the fun activities. 

Please encourage your students to wear their "house shirt" on the Second Friday of each month!  If they don't have a "house shirt", they can  wear their "house" color.
