Greetings Tyee Park Families,  

We are in the midst of our Spring Star testing, and I am so proud of the growth each and every student is making. Teachers are working hard, and our students are showing what they know. Keep it up Tigers! 

The month of May not only brings May Showers, but it also brings Smarter Balance testing for our 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students. With this can come some testing stress and anxiety. We will always incorporate brain breaks and setting a testing an environment where any child can achieve. It is also important at home that students are getting a good night’s rest each evening. I have a new favorite Disney movie ‘Turning Red’ is a great example of how we are actively learning how to calm ourselves down. I highly recommend checking it out!
