Hello Twin Creeks Families,

 

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about our exciting Spring Auction/Family Event: Roaring for the Good. On Friday, May 14, 2021, the Learning Fund (with the help and partnership of the Twin Creeks PTA) will host a virtual Spring auction from 6:30 to 8:00pm. The event will feature an art lesson with our very own Mrs. DeMello in addition to the live auction and a toy giveaway. The cost per family to participate is $5. To RSVP, please purchase a ticket for your family and the Zoom link for the event will be provided to you, as well as details for picking up materials for the art lesson, by May 13th. Family tickets can be purchased here: Twin Creeks Virtual Auction Family Ticket  Check out the special Teacher Time events.

 

Last week our Twin Creeks students and staff participated in an earthquake drill.  Everyone practiced how to drop, cover and hold on. We also discussed the importance of earthquake preparedness with our students.  Earthquake preparedness is a responsibility of all Californians and we encourage our families to discuss earthquake readiness with their children at home.  Each month our students and staff participate in a fire drill and twice a year we practice with an earthquake drill.

 

As we prepare for the return of our students next fall we’d like to give you the opportunity to share input in regards to your child’s class placement for the 2021-22 school year.  If you are interested in providing this input, please complete this Parent Input form by May 3. 

 

Staff Appreciation Week:  This coming week we recognize our wonderful, hardworking teachers and staff.  A very special thank you to our wonderful PTA for providing a boxed Staff Appreciation Grab and Go Lunch from Dos Coyotes on Monday!

 

5th Grade Math Placement Exam Information was sent home by the district to 5th grade families on 4/30 to allow families to register for MAP (Math Advancement Program)
