Welcome to the 2014-15 school year at TES!
Here are some updates:
On Tuesday, December 2, TES and TIS teachers were fortunate to have Janis Heigl, Math Specialist, visit the schools for on-site Staff Development on the new Bridges Math Curriculum. Janis visited classrooms, demonstrated best teaching practices, and trained staff during the early release time.
Telluride Elementary School third graders were treated to a visit by the Telluride Rotary Club, where they talked to the students about good citizenship and presented each student with a brand-new dictionary to keep. Students and staff appreciate the support for education from the Telluride Rotary Club.
Miner Bee Visits!
October 22 is National Unity Day---Prevent Bullying. TES held an assembly to learn how to avoid and report bullies, and how to treat others with respect and kindness. TES students and staff wore orange as a symbol of taking a stand against bullying at our school. Even the TES Miner Bee attended and wore orange!
At the assembly, Dr. Tara Gray, School Counselor, showed two videos and talked to the kids about bullying, a group of TMHS students presented two skits, and Mrs. Muckerman and the TES Training Choir sang a song. All TES students took an Anti-Bullying Oath and received a bookmark to sign. It was a great program!
