3/31/15 > Reminder:
The Advance-ED onsite team visit for our Accreditation will be on
Wednesday and Thursday, April 1 & 2. There are four members on the team
and they will be walking around doing short observations and / or short
interviews with as many of the staff as they can access between their
schedule and our schedules. They are here simply to validate what we told
them in the report you worked on at each grade level in January. Their
purpose is not to critique us as educators, but to verify the information
we reported.

Please assist them in any way possible with directions, information, etc.
in order to make their stay here as productive as possible.

For those of you who comprise the focus groups, please be on time. Be as
honest in the interviews as you were on the report, and provide them with
as much information to adequately answer their questions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to check with any SIT member.
3/31/15 > Thank You
There are simply no words to express our heartfelt thanks for the prayers, donations and the food that were brought to my home and my daughter Jolene's home after we lost our special Angel CJStrongbearboyhawk Thomas. Loosing CJ has been such a painful experience, but with the love and support from the staff here at the TMES has helped ease the pain for all of us.

Thank you,
Cindy Hawk & family
