We THE Tigers will be inspired to lead, honor, and excel today.
What do Elephant and Piggy, Skippyjon Jones, Splat the Cat, Pigeon, and The Tin Man have in common? They were all entries in our Literary Pumpkin Patch. Over 100 literary pumpkins celebrated reading with our Tigers this week, and everyone enjoyed finding their favorite characters in the patch. Do you see any characters you know?
Students sharpened the saw during our first club meetings of the year. Every student selected a club choice and spent the afternoon learning something fun. Students could choose from music, yoga, knitting, puzzles, Legos, soccer, and many more. These fifth graders used computers to program robots they made from Legos. Fun!
Our kinder teddy bears were invited for a Teddy Bear Sleepover in the library this weekend. Kinder students dropped off their bears with directions to use their best library manners during their visit. What could possibly go wrong?!
October 21 is Read for the Record Day. In 2013 more than 2 million students across the United States read Otis. This year we are hoping to beat that record. Today, nearly 800 Tigers joined in reading Bunny Cakes by Rosemary Wells. It is fun to think of how many other students in America are reading this book today just like we are. Way to synergize, Tigers!
October 20-24 is Red Ribbon Week at Tuscany Heights. On Monday we will "Dance away from bullies." On Tuesday wear your Hawaiian clothes to tell bullies to "Lei off unhealthy choices" On Wednesday dress western as we "Give bad habits the boot." On Thursday, "team up" for a great school by wearing your favorite team attire. And on Friday, "Hat's off to our Tigers."

Recipient of the Coretta Scott King award, and talented artist and illustrator, E.B. Lewis, visited Tuscany Heights this week. He inspired our students to strive for excellence and find their passion. Mr. Lewis signed many books, and took time to speak personally with one student, who illustrated his own picture for our guest. Thank you for a great visit, Mr. Lewis!
