Dear Terrapin Families,
As we approach the Thanksgiving Holiday week, I would like to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and fun. This is a great time of year to reflect on all the many things we are thankful for. Personally, I am thankful to be a part of this community. Our students, staff and parents are a pleasure to work with. I especially look forward to watching our students learn and grow and the amazing work that they complete each day. Terrapins rock!
I am also grateful for the upcoming 2nd annual Turtleback Science Fair! With next week off of school, now is a great time to encourage your child to consider their Science Fair topic. Below is an article that discusses just some of the many benefits that a Science Fair has in the growth of your child(ren):
The Science Fair will take place Tuesday, February 25th– Friday, February 28th, 2014. The registration form must be turned into the office by January 31st.
CHARACTER COUNTS FILM FESTIVAL CONTEST
Announcing the 6th annual video contest for the PUSD Character and Ethics Film Festival that is held in the spring!

The top three videos will be shown at the film festival on April 22nd at the Poway Center for Performing Arts. See the attached flyer for details. The submission date is Friday, March 14, 2014. Thanks for your support of CHARACTER COUNTS!
