Principal's Message

Dear Families,
 
Where did this school year go?  It is hard to believe we have less than a month to go.  I am so proud of the kiddos, and all of their hard work this year.  The staff has all enjoyed watching them grow.
 
Testing season is in full swing.  Right now, we are in the middle of Smarter Balanced testing, and are just beginning our district testing.  Please make sure your child is getting a good night's sleep and a good breakfast.  This helps them with their stamina for the testing situations.  Please let your child's teacher know if you have any questions.
 
We have many fun things coming up for the students.  Some classes have field trips, beach days, field day, and special lunches, just to name a few.  Be watching for notes coming home letting you know if your child's class has an upcoming event.
 
To our fifth grade students-we are going to miss you!  So excited for you as you transition to the next step in your educational careers.  Thank you for being awesome THE kids!
 
To all of you, those familiar with our school and those new to the district, I encourage you to become involved in the educational process.  Visit our school, and see firsthand the achievements of our children.  Terrace Heights is a place where we value the learning of each and every student, and work hard for them every day.  Please do not hesitate to contact our school office with any questions or concerns.
