Hi TJL Families!

 Thank you for visiting our TJL Webpage!

We are so excited about being able to use our new library!  Our students have been having such a great time in their new space!  To share a little bit more about the new library, and all that it has to offer, members of our Tornado News Team teamed up with some of our TJL students to create a news story.  The full story will be posted soon, but click on the link below to see a 'sneak peak' at our TJL and High School students working together on this collaborative effort!  A big thank you to Mr. Ambrosio and the Tornado News Team for working with us and for making this news story so special!

 A big congratulations to 4th grader, Isisdora, for winning the Maggie's Challenge 2021 essay writing contest.  Isisdora wrote a beautiful essay about being mindful as part of Maggie's Challenge.  As the winner of this contest, Isisdora received a $250 gift card to a restaurant of her choice!

Isidora, We couldn't be more proud of you!

 For more information about Maggie's Challenge and Maggie's Mile, please see the links listed below our list of upcoming 'events and activities' (below).

Thank you to our Wonderful PTA and to Christopher Robin Landscapers for your continued efforts in keeping TJL beautiful and festive!  Our courtyard and planters by the Main Entrance look amazing!  Thank you!

 Our first winter concert was held in person this year and it was a huge success!  Our 5th grade students practiced and worked so hard to become 'concert ready' and they did an outstanding job!  Our 4th graders are "up next" as their concert will be on Monday, January 24th!  We're looking forward to another great event!


During the week of December 6th through 12th, schools around the world celebrated the "Hour of Code"!  The "Hour of Code" takes place each year during "Computer Science Education Week" and TJL was excited to join in the fun!  Please see the links below, from Mrs. Washington, for some fun ways that your family can continue to learn about and participate in some "Hour of Code" activities at home!  Please also be on the lookout for information about our upcoming "Kids Who Code" event for students in grades K-5!
