Dear TTUSD families,
We were heartbroken to learn of the mass shooting at a Florida school today. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends of the victims and their entire school community.
These horrific situations are so difficult to understand, let alone explain to students. Below are a few resources to provide some support:

SWEP Science Festival
We are so excited about the upcoming Science Fair Assembly on Tuesday, April 24 and Wednesday, April 25. We need volunteers to make these science events successful. Volunteers will host a hands-on, science activity station; no experience necessary, just a willingness to explore science with students. (There will be an informal training Wednesday and Thursday morning to help parents get acquainted with their station and activity.) If you are interested or have questions, please contact Ashley Phillips at email@example.com. This year we will be using an online sign-up system for volunteers. To volunteer please visit: https://tinyurl.com/SWEPsciencefestival
Green Team Project
The Glenshire Green Team is pleased to announce a new project that will be taking place on campus in efforts to reduce waste. Green Team students will be participating in Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe program, which prevents 1.5 million pairs of sneakers from ending up in landfills annually. The materials of these collected shoes will be separated and sorted into categories of rubber, fabric, and foam, which will be turned into playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, running tracks, and athletic fields. A link on this program is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=havv5H6RMWA&app=desktop.
For the entire month of February there will be a collection bin in the main lobby of Glenshire Elementary School for old, worn-out, unwanted athletic shoes (no cleats, sneakers only). Any sneakers from friends, family, workplaces, etc. of any condition at all can be donated to be recycled. Green Team is excited to pilot this project at Glenshire and hopefully it can be duplicated throughout TTUSD in future years.
If there are any question/concerns at all please feel free to reach out to GES Green Team instructor, Shannon Keener, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Green Team students, Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships (SWEP), and Glenshire Elementary are all thrilled to be helping in efforts to reduce waste in our community.
