Get Ready To Shakeout!
Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:16 a.m. on October 16* during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills, which began in California in 2008.

Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes– wherever you live, work, or travel.
Thank You Parent Teacher Group (PTG) for the AWESOME electronic sign!
Thank you PTG. Due to your generosity and tireless fundraising, we will have a new electronic sign at Tompkins to replace the current one. See the attached link for a picture.
Playground Safety
The beginning of school is always a good time to review safety rules with children. Attached is a youtube video about playground safety.

Spirit Friday Guidelines
Students must be wearing a shirt or sweatshirt with the school logo (any color shirt) or at least 50% black and orange, we will accept students wearing 50% of just orange, but not 50% of just black (since it is easy to accidentally wear black, but most student's don't wear a bright orange shirt on accident) we don't accept shoes as spirit wear unless paired with something else since shoes are usually an everyday item. We don't consider coral or other shades of pink or red as orange, we will accept most shades of orange, but would like to see tiger orange. We will accept a solid orange shirt even if there is another logo on it, or shirts with tiger pictures or tiger print if they pair it with something else orange or black. We want to see that the student chose their outfit specifically to show school spirit and didn't just accidentally wear something that had a little orange on it. We want to encourage school spirit and reward students who are showing it, if we start to give candy to any student who can find any bit of orange on their shirt, that defeats the whole purpose. We are trying to be lenient since it is the beginning of the year, if you aren't sure if they are wearing the school colors we can help when we get to the class. We are trying to get a T-Shirt order ready so that students can purchase spirit wear and hope to have that ready by October or November. Students can still purchase from mylocker.com also. If you have any additional questions please let us know.
