The team from iZone joined us for our Coalition meeting. Their primary goal is to get Treadwell Elementary and Middle off the failing schools list, and they have already put in a lot of hard work. We invited the team to join us and tell us what specific needs they have at their schools.
At the Elementary, tutors are needed. Mrs. Wicks the principal said they need help any hour of the day from 7:20am-4pm. If you have interest in helping, please email Mrs. Wicks: wicksmd(at)scsk12.org.
At the Middle School, Mrs. McBride specifically asked for people to lead after school clubs, activities and sports. Tutors are also needed during the school day and she greatly encouraged men to get involved with her students. To help out at the middle school, contact Mrs. McBride: smithmcbridet(at)scsk12.org
It does take a village to raise a child! Sara from Bellevue reminded us that if tutoring was not our strong-suit that notes of encouragement and baked goods go a long way to supporting our teachers!
Treadwell is home to the only Dual Language Emersion Program in the State of Tennessee where students learn in both Spanish and English.
To be a part of the Treadwell Elementary PTA, please email them, treadwellelmpta(at)gmail.com or follow them on twitter: @treadwellpta.
We are working on a Community Newsletter, if you would like to contribute, please email heights firstname.lastname@example.org
