Greetings Timberwolf Families!

It’s been another great trimester here at Terra Vista! Our students have really adjusted to the new Common Core Standards. They have shown that they are truly “Leaders of the Pack.” On a daily basis students can be seen solving math problems in a variety of different ways. It is just amazing to see that our students now deeply understand math concepts rather just applying formulas. Everyday we watch as our students closely read complex text in such a way that they can cite evidence from their books to help explain their thinking. Their vocabulary skills have also grown tremendously. Our students regularly write sentences and paragraphs that show they understand and can apply their newfound knowledge. These kids are impressive! It is so exciting to see them heading in a direction that will lead toward successful, fulfilling careers.

As always we have also been busy with projects, programs and events that provide a balanced education for our children. The students enjoy all of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) opportunities they have in lab time, weekly experiment demonstrations and the science fair and exposition that our 5th grade students brought to us. In a series of assemblies, Mr. Heath has taught our students about art from around the world. This trimester our Timberwolves created Mexican Folk Art, Aboriginal Art Pieces and works inspired by the continent of Asia. Our student council sponsored mashed potato drive was a huge success and helped many families who have been devastated by the effects of cancer. Finally, the children showed the Terra Vista spirit as they feverishly trekked as many laps as they could during our PTA sponsored Timberwolf Trek!

Thank you to all of our students, families, teachers and staff for all you do to make this such an amazing community to be part of. We are all fortunate to spend our days with such an awesome group of people!

Mrs. Tavolazzi
