We have a group of responsible fourth and fifth grade students who provide valuable assistance to our younger students. Fourth grader students: Carter, Ava, Kate, Jacob, Taylor, and Karson work in pairs to assist first grade students in learning computer skills. Fifth grade students Ally, Alexis, Mason, and Natalie also work in pairs as they assist Kindergarten and Early 5’s students. We celebrate their attitude and contribution as they give back to help others.
Monday and Wednesday are very busy nights this week. Both nights are full of meetings between families and teachers sharing student progress and making plans to help each child achieve their potential. We appreciate all the parents who take the time to participate.
Turrill Elementary had over 100 people represent Lapeer Community Schools and Turrill School. Everyone was decked out in our Lightning gear and looked spectacular, especially with our blue and green balloons from Burke’s Flowers! A good time was had by all.
Thank you students, staff and parents who took the time to participate in this community event.
We are having an outdoor family movie night on September 16th here at Turrill. We will be sending home further details (showtime at dusk, concessions, and what to bring).
Week two at Turrill and our students are already working hard on their MAP test to establish the baseline for this school year.
August first is an exciting day at Turrill Elementary; it is our first day of school! The staff is excited, the parking lot is full, and families are lined up waiting for doors to open and kick off a brand new school year.
