Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!
CALLING ALL BUCKETFILLERS!
At Turtleback we teach and promote a community of kindness and caring towards all people. As part of this caring community we promote and offer community service events for all our families to participate in. Last year it was the highlight of our community service events not only for me, but for all our students and families that participated. This coming Monday night, February 1st, we will again be feeding the homeless at the Salvation Army downtown. I strongly encourage you to sign up and be a part of a truly giving event. Please see the message below for more information and how to sign up to participate!
