SPIRIT RUN 2012
It is my pleasure to announce that Tournament Hills Elementary School received $1,523.50 in donations through the 2012 Spirit Run that took place in September. The money will be used for activities related to health and fitness.
Fresh & Easy Receipts
Continue to bring in your receipts of $20.00 or more from Fresh & Easy. We will be accepting receipts dated through December 31st in the office. Our 100 MIle Club gets $1.00 for every $20.00 dollars spent at Fresh & Easy.
A big thank you to all Tournament Hills Families that participated in our Fresh & Easy Shop for Schools Night on November 7. Our families that participated helped us raise approximately $372 for our 100 Mile Club. Congratualtions to Mrs. Tax's class, Mrs. Dill's class, and Ms. Johnston's class for having the most parent and student participation at our Shop for Schools Night.
ALLERGY FREE ZONE
We have several students at Tournament Hills Elementary that have food allergies to peanut/nut and chocolate products. As a school we have taken some precautions to limit exposure to these allergens.
A table in the eating area has been designated as an allergy free zone. Peanut butter/nut and chocolate products will not be sold in the cafeteria. Some children bring their lunch to school. If peanut butter/nuts or chocolate are brought to school your child will not be able to sit at the allergy free table. If your child has eaten peanuts/nuts or chocolate before coming to school, please be sure your child’s hands and face have been thoroughly washed before leaving for school.
We appreciate your support. Please contact me if you have any questions.
The 100 Mile Club is a physical fitness and life skills project for all individuals based on the goal of running or walking 100 miles at school or work during a single school year. Tournament Hills is excited to begin The 100 Mile Club program this year!
The Mission of The 100 Mile Club is to provide to all individuals the opportunity to experience the powerful feeling of fitness and TRUE personal success. Participants use lifeskills based on The Pyramid of Success, designed by the legendary basketball coach, teacher, and 100 Mile Club mentor, the late Coach John Wooden. Incentives will be offered at the 25, 50, 75 and 100 “mile”stones. If you are able to help track miles/laps at school during lunch please contact Kuuipo Benson or Hilary Larson.

NO LEFT TURN ON CHAMPIONS DRIVE BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2013
Since the beginning of the school year the staff at Tournament Hills has been working closely with the Beaumont Police Department to ensure the safety of our students, parents and staff during drop off and dismissal. Starting on Wednesday, January 30ththe median opening on Champions Drive will be barricaded. There will be no left turns in or out of the parking lot at drop off or dismissal. All cars will exit the parking lot making a right hand turn. It is our goal to ensure the safety of our students, parents and staff and improve the flow of traffic.
Thank you for your cooperation.
PARKING LOT AT TOURNAMENT HILLS
We understand that everyone is in a hurry and your lives are chaotic but we still need to remember that the number one priority is the safety of the students. We ask that you follow a few simple rules that will ensure the safety of ALL students: It is important that the crosswalk and sidewalk are not blocked at any time. The yellow curb is for pick-up and drop off only. Do not park your car or leave your car unattended along the yellow curb. When pulling up to the front of the school pull forward to the yellow box painted on the sidewalk. Students will not be permitted to run down to your car. For the safety of all drivers please stay in the “Pull Forward Line”. Do not take car cuts. The inner circle of traffic must continue moving. Cars in the inner circle will be asked to continue looping around. Out of respect to the residents of Tournament Hills you will be asked to loop around if you are going to block Champions Drive.
We have worked hand in hand with the Beaumont Police Department and the Fire Marshall in making the traffic situation at Tournament Hills the best and safest possible situation. My request of you…please DO NOT ignore or be rude to the school staff during drop off or dismissal. Please be aware of our school staff and listen to their directions. Please be respectful of their efforts and we will do our best to get you through safely and quickly. We all appreciate your cooperation.

RESPECTING INSTRUCTIONAL TIME
Our students and teachers have such a limited amount of instructional time each day and out of respect for that time parents will no longer be able to go to the classrooms to talk to their child, deliver a lunch, drop off homework, etc. These types of interruptions impact the learning of all children in that classroom. If you have homework, lunch, etc. to drop off you will need to leave it with the front office staff. If you plan on volunteering please schedule a time with your child’s teacher so the teacher can have materials prepared for you so there are limited interruptions in instructional time. Thank you for your cooperation.
