Highlights from last week:
We did our first S.T.E.M. activity and talked about what it means to be an engineer! We now know the difference between using materials in our classroom as toys and using them as tools. In social studies, we talked about what it means to follow rules and help at school and at home. We were able to have choice time with our third grade buddies.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. When does school begin for my child?
A. You are more than welcome to send your child to school as early as 7:45am. If your child arrives before 8am they will go straight to the gym for Walking Club. Walking Club is a great way for students to interact and get some energy out in the morning.
Q. When does school end for my child?
A. Students will arrive at After School Care or Car Line at 3pm. If you are picking up your child in Car Line please make sure that you arrive early or on time in order to help make dismissal as smooth as possible. If you arrive early please park in the parking lot across the street from the school. We highly encourage parents to help their child become independent with buckling themselves into their car seat.
Q. What should I pack my child for snack?
A. Here at TDS we highly encourage parents to pack 1 healthy snack for their child.
Q. How much time do the students play throughout the day?
A. We truly believe in the importance of learning through play! Students will have many chances throughout the day to interact with one another. We take many “brain breaks” and participate in energizers. We also have designated times to play indoors and outdoors.
Q. How long is rest time, and what will my child need?
A. The students will have rest time for 30 minutes everyday. We will provide mats for each child.
