The Fall Festival was a huge success!
The day started with family pumpkin carving.
Then, the campus was transformed into an autumn wonderland for neighbors and students to enjoy.
The festival featured music, bounce houses, food, games, and shopping.
The Toro pumpkin display lined the campus for all eyes to see.
Thank you, staff, PTO, and family volunteers for collaborating your time and effort for our community event.
The Kindergarten Mandarin team, Jamie Ezolt, Anne Jones, and Ying Shao, wrote a grant entitled “Let’s Go China”!
They were awarded $750 from the Chandler Education Foundation (CEF) that will be used to purchase Mandarin costumes, games, and books for the Tarwater library.
Kids can easily learn Mandarin at a young age. Thank you to parents who donated to the CEF and we appreciate the CEF for supporting our project.
Who says girls don’t like science? Recently, Tarwater started their first ever Girl’s STEM Club!
The club, facilitated by 5th grade teacher, Terri Schilling, meets after school each Thursday to explore and delve into different science and engineering activities. The girls are learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
On February 18, the club is participating in the Arizona SciTech Chandler Science Spectacular, representing Tarwater with several interactive demonstrations for attendees.
The new Tarwater Running Club started this month. We have 232 members signed up. The runners will practice once a week this year. Starting in January they will practice Tuesdays and Thursdays. Race days take place in January and February.
The Tarwater Annual Jingle Jog is on Friday, December 16th. The course is about a mile for grades K-2 and a mile and a half for grades 3-6. Each grade level will be assigned a holiday color to wear. We can’t wait to color the neighborhood with our holiday runners!
