Tobias Science -O- Rama
The science fair has had a time change. Due to the district band concert, we are moving the fair up a half an hour so that our kids could do both things if they would like to. The NEW time is 6:00-7:00 pm- / March 10, 2015.

Jump Rope For Heart

Jump Rope For Heart Event’s will take place in PE on Thursday March 12th and Friday March 13th. Donation envelopes are due Friday, March 20th. (Flyers went home on Friday).

Running Club
Running Club is starting up again for a Spring Session! First day is Monday, March 30th. We will be running on Mondays and Thursdays from 2:20 - 3:20pm from March 30th until May 28th. Please turn in registration form to the office before Spring Break. (Flyers went home Friday).

Battle of the Books
We are getting ready for Battle of the Books(B.O.B.) which is a family feud style tournament with questions about books for 4th - 6th graders. We need a few parent volunteers to help with our Battle Planning Session on Tuesday, March 17 from 12:45 - 2:20pm. This is when students pick their team names, mascots and colors. If you are available, please email Kelly Sayre at Thank you for supporting this fantastic event!

Valley Cinema Spring Family Matinee Program
Spring Matinee time is here and order forms will be coming home next week to order your tickets. $10 per ticket. Program starts February 28th and will run different weekly movies through May 5th. Be on the look-out for your order form for movie selections. If you do not receive a form, extras will be available in the Main Office starting Friday, February 13th. All tickets orders will be sent home with students.

Dad's Flying Pancake Breakfast

This is a great opportunity for developing experience for organizing an event, contributing volunteer hours to your community, and looks really good on a job resume. You will have the freedom to make changes to the event and update it as needed. We are hoping to raise money this year to help improve the sound system on the stage, which will support more performing arts at Tobias (plays, band concerts, talent shows, choir, etc.). If you are interested in learning more about what is involved, please contact Kim Cornie at Without your support we will not be able to run the pancake breakfast this year.

Background checks
Background checks are required to volunteer (including classroom help, PTO and field trips) and expire every two years. Prior to volunteering, we ask that you complete the volunteer application process at

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.
