Elementary Family Reading Night "Dr. Seuss" will take place on Monday, March 3rd, 2014 at 6:00pm in the Tatum Elementary Library. Please bring the family and join us for reading and refreshments, as your child shares their AR books and testing practices with you.
Note from the Superintendent:
Tatum Municipal Schools will be giving the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment to students in grades 3 - 11 beginning on Monday, March 17th, 2014. During this Test, students will be asked to demonstrate their knowledge in various subjects. It is extremely important that our students give their absolute best effort on this test. Recent legislation requires that students perform at the proficient level to graduate from High School. Legislation is now being introduced that also uses the results of this test to determine whether or not a student passes their current grade level. Besides, we are Tatum, and want to perform better than all other schools.
This testing will end on Thursday, March 27th. Please make sure that your child gets to bed on time and eats properly on a daily basis. Also, if at all possible, do not schedule any appointments during those dates. Attendance is extremely important.
Tatum Schools along with the NM Dept. of Health recommends 4 ways you and your family may keep from getting sick with the flu at school and at home: 1. Wash hands often or use hand sanitizers. 2. Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. 3. If your child is sick - keep them home until at least 24 hours has passed since they've ran a fever of 100 degrees or more without taking fever reducing medication. 4. Get vaccinated for the flu. Tatum Schools will be offering flu vaccinations for all Tatum Students as soon as they become available.
