Author Visit

TES just wrapped up their One School, One Book program by reading Summer of the Woods by Steven K. Smith. Each child received their own signed copy of the book and participated in daily reading and comprehension activities. To culminate the program, the author came for a visit to teach students about his books, writing, and the joys of being an author! 

St. Jude Fundraiser

The students at Temperance recently participated in their annual math-a-thon to raise money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Since 1993, TES has raised over $35,000. The students collectively raised over $3,000 this year to donate to this cause. The 27 students who participated were rewarded with an ice cream party, and the class with the highest totals enjoyed a bingo party. Contrats to 2nd grade for winning the bingo event! The student who raised the most money was Mariah, Mercer.
