Tobias Yearbook
We need more pictures for the 2013-2014 Yearbook! I would really appreciate parents and teachers to send me any photos they have taken throughout the school year and are fitting for the yearbook. These would be school events i.e.: tournaments, school activities, classroom events, clubs, field trips etc. Please send these photos to Beryl Brown-emeraldoriginals@hotmail.com

Battle of the Books 2014
Battle of the Books forms have been sent home. 4th-6th grade students who would like to participate needed to complete and return forms to their teacher’s by 3/14. The battle is set for Wednesday May 28th!

Reminder for parents
When dropping off students, please use the vehicle drop off loop. Students should not be dropped off in front of the school, in between traffic, or where the buses pull in. The school does have signs indicating where/not to drop off. Let's all be courteous, respectful, safe and set a good example.

Moby Max school wide contest
We are continuing the incentive program for mobymax.com math. The top 3 students in each class (for moby max math minutes each month) will be entered into a school wide drawing. Three winners will be drawn at each Spirit Assembly. The winners get to bring a friend to pizza lunch with Mr. Callaway.

School donation/request
  • Our school has a need to replenish copy paper. If you are able to donate plain white copy paper, please bring into the office.
