Data Day

No school you say? That's right, no school on Tuesday, Sept. 7 for Data Day. And what exactly is Data Day? It's a work day for teachers when they go through student achievement data to better understand and serve the needs of our students. This is an important day that helps our instructional teams individualize instruction so that all students can be successful!

08/31/2021

Remember, there is no school Monday or Tuesday next week in observance of Labor Day and for Data Day.

Sept. 3 Early Release

TFSD schools will be dismissing students early this Friday! You can find early release times on the TFSD website. https://www.tfsd.org/early-release-times/

[08/19/21]   The Twin Falls School District does not administer the COVID vaccine. Parents have the authority to determine what vaccinations are appropriate for their children. By law, school districts are required to obtain proof of vaccination or exemption for vaccinations required for public school enrollment. The COVID-19 vaccine is not one of the vaccines required by law and the TFSD does not track information about students' COVID-19 vaccination status. If a parent feels that a staff member has had an inappropriate conversation with their student about vaccines, we ask that they contact their child’s school so that the issue can be addressed.

Wondering what's for lunch next week? School lunch menus are now posted on the TFSD website! Remember, breakfast and lunches will be free to all students this year (there is still a charge for second helpings and additional milks).

Raise It Up | Sesame Street | PBS LearningMedia

Parents! Are you looking for resources to help get your students ready to return to school? Idaho Public Television has collections featuring activities and video resources to help students get reacclimated with school. These are generally resources for teachers but you can access them before school starts to get your kiddo thinking about classroom routines before they even enter the school. Here's my favorite, a celebrity-filled Sesame Street song about raising your hand in class: https://idahoptv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/sesame-raise-it-up/raise-it-up-sesame-street/

Raise It Up | Sesame Street | PBS LearningMedia Participation in classroom routines and rules is an important part of school and this video focuses on raising your hand to ask or answer a question. Tons of celebrities join Segi and her friends to raise their hands up high!

She has also taken on an additional role getting our time clock process up and running.

Middle school students designing and entering their own virtual realities

Flashback to the week after the school year ended when students learned about virtual reality at Robert Stuart Middle School Bears. This program, funded by the Idaho STEM Action Center provided students who might not otherwise have time to take STEM classes during their normal school schedule a chance to learn a new skill and get excited about computer science! TFSD is a district of choice for exciting learning opportunities!

It might be summertime but many of our students are still learning in our buildings. Oregon Trail Elementary School hosts a summer school program for migrant students each year that makes summer learning fun.... and sweet! The seventh and eighth-grade students involved in this program learned about cell structure and made cupcakes with decorations to look like cells! The TFSD is a district of choice for extra (and tasty) learning opportunities!

Recently, the TFSD Residential Construction Level 2 students, with their teacher Cameron Hoge, completed a concrete job at TFHS. They poured a concrete slab inside the greenhouse for Mr. Campbell. The students first had to haul out 12 yds. of dirt and then form for the concrete. They poured a total of 9 yds. of concrete. The students did excellent for their first time on a project like this.

The level 3 students have been working on a storage building at South Hills Middle School. They really enjoyed this project. Their only complaint was working through the winter weather, but they all toughed it out and did a good job.

At Robert Stuart Middle School, Mr. Anderson's 7th grade STEM students are applying all they have been learning for the past four weeks by programming their robots to solve different space simulation challenges.

shout out to Mrs. Thomsen who is the band director for Robert Stuart Middle School and Canyon Ridge High School. She filled in on multiple instruments (percussion, clarinet, alto sax) during a recent RSMS band concert. This also means she doesn't conduct for those numbers. The kids have been taught so well, that they didn't even need a conductor!

At Twin Falls High School, Counselor Griselda Escobedo took the time to recognize Abi Briseno, a student at TFHS. Abi was the force behind getting the Latinos in Action class at TFHS through their Hispanic Culture Club. This led to Abi's senior project. Abi took it upon herself to organize a tamale fundraiser to raise money for a scholarship fund. Abi taught the Family Consumer Science classes how to make tamales on Monday, May 3. Then on Wednesday for Cinco de Mayo Abi sold full lunches and special orders to staff. She made almost $500. She hopes to continue this event annually and already has a sophomore and a freshman interested. Abi is a true leader with a heart of gold!
