hello may

From the Desk of Dr. Sladek:

It has been an incredible 2021-2022 school year! We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with over 150 families to ensure the academic and social-emotional success of all our 220 students!

I am extremely proud and grateful to the staff of our Tribe who work so hard to provide quality instruction, as well as, positive behavior support for all of our students. I'd also like to thank our community for your continued partnership and support. Truman Elementary is a great place to be!

          It is really hard to believe the school year is winding down and school is almost over. Our last day of school is May 25th. May will be a very busy month due to the numerous activities at the end of the school year; every grade level has some sort of celebration, we have a MAP testing celebration, a school-wide field day, and an Aloha day all in the coming weeks. Please make sure to keep the attached calendar to refer to the events throughout this last month of school.

            Spring is finally here; a time for growing. Your children are doing just that, growing at Truman Elementary. Please take a moment, sit back and admire your children for who they are. As parents you give your children roots from which they can grow. Grow in knowledge, grow in friendship, grow in understanding and citizenship.  It is an interesting thought that one day soon they will soar on their own; firmly rooted in the ideals you have given them as parents. I’d like to thank you for allowing us the privilege of working with your children.

            Summer break represents both an ending and a new beginning. And finally, while summer represents rest and relaxation for our students, reading remains the foundation for success in school and in life.  Pick up a book this summer and read! Reading continues to be one of the most inexpensive and available forms of education and entertainment.
