Dear 4th Grade Families,
We would like to invite you all to our 3rd Annual Teller Elementary Clay Animation Film Fest on April 4th at 5:30 in the auditorium. This has been a joint project between the Art classes and music classes in which we have used two programs on the I-Pads, Garage Band and Stop Animation to create short films. The students have learned what it truly takes to create and edit a film as well as creating and editing a music sound track. Each student will present and give a brief synopsis of the storyline of their project. Please come help us celebrate Teller’s future filmmakers. Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you all there!!! Please feel free to contact either Katie Taft or myself if you have any questions.

Dear Teller Families,
As part of the library projects, this time we have partnered with the Children’s Hospital to help kids with cancer by collecting different items to help alleviate chemo side effects and make their stay at the hospital more pleasant.
This is a great opportunity to teach our students the magic of giving and caring by involving them in the collection process.
We’ll be collecting new travel-sized items by classroom in order to help as much as possible. We will combine these items into Chemo Care Kits for Kids.
The library will be accepting donations starting Monday, March 20th thru April 21st (except for during spring break) from 8 am to 3 pm. You may leave your donations in the library or in the office if students are testing in the library.
Grade level donation requests:
K.- Lip balm
ECE.- Travel size hand sanitizer
1st.- Travel size body lotion
2nd.- I-tunes gift cards
3rd.- Note pads / pens
4th.- Cozy socks
For more information, you can send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Tellerpalooza will be Saturday, May 27th! Tellerpalooza is Teller’s largest fundraiser each year at the Bluebird Theater with Teller Bands, awesome local bands, games, food, a bake sale, and a “wall of wine”. More event details coming soon!
Do you like live music, throwing big parties and being a part of the community? Then we want you for the Tellerpalooza planning committee. The event depends solely on the parents and the community to make it a success. We have lots of open spots on the committee so you’re sure to find something that suits your interests.
