Elementary News



Tenaha Elementary had our fifth Elementary Parent Night for 4th and 5th

grades on Thursday, October 16, 2015 at 5:00 pm.  We had 21 students

represented out of 54 total students in fourth grade and 7 students out of

35 total students in fifth grade.  Teachers discussed standards based report

cards, portfolios, homework procedures, curriculum expectations for the

year, STAAR testing requirements and ways that parents can help their

children at home.  We were very pleased with the turn out and would like to

say thanks to all who were in attendance!! A special thanks goes out to Ms.

Dominique Roland who provided child care for ALL of our Parent Nights as

well as Mr. Jose Leos and his daughter Cinthya Leos for translating!!



6th and 8th Graders Participation in the World Education Games



Tuesday, in our time zone, Tenaha ISD 6th and 8th graders joined students

all over the world to participate in World Math Day, World Literacy Day, and

World Science Day competitions. Students signed into their topic choice on

the three sites and began completing their 20 games in each event. “We're

now halfway through the World Education Games (WEG) “live” period. So far

over 3 MILLION individual challenges have taken place across the event,

world-wide,” stated Tenaha’s 6th and 8th grade Math teacher, Teresa Wiist.


Wednesday was forecast to be the biggest and busiest day yet, with millions

of students expected to log in and participate. So far, almost 100 MILLION

UNICEF points have been earned by students - a huge amount at this stage of

the competition. This means that students around the world have worked to

contribute over 75 Schools-in-a-Box so far. For every 5000 UNICEF points

earned by students during the World Education Games, 3P Learning will donate

$1 towards supported education projects. The more points earned by our

students during this live competition, the more students we can support in

struggling countries worldwide. Students at Tenaha are doing their part to

add hundreds of points during the three day event.



Only points from students first 20 games for each competition (math,

literacy, and science) will be counted towards their WEG score. Each

competition has pre-set gaming levels. Students can play at any level, but

compete at specific levels to earn WEG points. This makes the competition

fair for students of all ages.  The final results for Tenaha students will

be reported after the games have finished. Students can continue to use

their log-in information after the live games have finished.  This will help

students to master math, literacy, and science skills.



2nd Grade Field Trip


On Friday, October 16th the 2nd grade classes from Tenaha Elementary

traveled to the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University. Students

enjoyed the production of Fly Guy and Other Stories presented by Theatre

works USA. After the play, the students enjoyed their lunch and the

beautiful weather at Maroney Park. Everyone was well behaved and had a

wonderful time. 2nd Grade teachers are Mrs. Nina Vick and Mrs. Stacie Barr.

We would like to say thank you to our bus driver and chaperones Mr. David

Sims, Mrs. Pat Sims, and Mrs. Jessi Webb.
