T-Bird Weekly Message by Dr. Blakley Wallace

WEEKLY MESSAGE: 10/11/2021



Dear T-Bird Families,

We have made it to the final week of our first quarter! Just a few more days to Fall Break!


Important information for the week:


Color Battle Fundraiser!


We have had a very successful first week of Color Battle. We have raised over $23,000! Let’s keep this momentum going! Remember we are raising our funds to support technology and innovation, our arts programs and teacher grants! All of these funds go right back into our classrooms to support our students!


Here is a quick video to tell you more about our Color Battle Fundraiser:
