TPE Macy's Parade
As part of a STREAM project with Mrs. Baker, after reading the book "Balloons Over Broadway," our Tigers designed and created balloons for our own version of the Macy's Parade. Here are just a few pictures from the parade this afternoon!
Title I Meeting/What's Next Night
Our Tiger families came out Thursday night to hear about our Title I program and to visit next year's classes. We were delighted to welcome rising kindergarteners and a teacher rep from HJM, as well!
DARE to Slime Fundraiser Celebration
Our students and staff had so much fun celebrating our 3rd place win during the DARE to Slime fundraiser. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed, and especially to our volunteers who were slimed: Principal Ashley Faulkenberry, Deputy Dora Bullock, Major David McFadden, Mr. Marty Marquez, and Mr. Paul Kruer!
1st Grade Learns Keynote
During Media Center classes, Mrs. Witt teaches our Tiger students about technology and how to use it appropriately. This month, she has been working with first graders on how to make presentations using Keynote on their iPads.
On Tuesday, November 21st, we held the TPE DARE graduation for our fifth grade Tigers. Congratulations to our essay winners: 3rd place - Austin Minn, 2nd place - Donald Collins, and 1st place - Ryese Sears. As Ryese read his essay aloud, the last part really stuck with us: "Now I'm responsible and confident enough to stop a bully. Are you?" This is a sentiment we hope all our Tigers carry with them!
Title I Reading Night
Our Tiger families joined us on Tuesday night for our annual Title I Reading Night. This year's theme was Reading Around the World, and everyone had the opportunity to visit several different countries. While there, they read texts about the country and learned reading strategies to use at home. Every student who attended got a homework pass, and we had four lucky winners who won door prizes - they each got a bag of books!
Everyone had a blast at Science Night! Families participated in many activities, including making bubbles, stomp rockets, rollercoasters, flying machines, looking at fingerprint patterns, and identifying inherited traits, among many others. We'd especially like to thank our community partners who joined us to give our students and families unique experiences. Check out our Facebook and Instagram accounts for video clips from some of the activities.
Read Across America Week
Our first graders enjoyed Read Across America Week and tried out green eggs and ham! Even our teachers got into the spirit of things!
3rd Grade Collaboration
Mrs. Quesinberry’s class enjoyed learning about elapsed time while they worked with their partners!
Mrs. Castleman’s class are Analytical Thinkers! They were analyzing Peter Pan and coming up with possible text questions!
During the month of December, our fifth graders are partnering up to read to our younger Tigers.
We would like to thank Publix of New Bern for supporting us with our Title I Math Night as our Tigers came out and practiced using math skills in the real world. As usual, everyone had a great time!
In 5th grade, our scientists have been learning about heat transfer. We’ve studied how hot air balloons work, by heating water and observing as the balloon inflates due to convection. We’ve also had a chance to design and test the usefulness of insulators.
Reading Night Fun
Our annual Title I Reading Night was held on Thursday, November 15th. Families visited stations to participate in reading activities, had the opportunity to sign up for library cards with Craven-Pamlico Regional Library, and even received a free book for coming!
