Touchet's Transitional Kindergarten program is off to a fantastic start. Ms. Castillo, the TK program instructor, offers our students a variety of opportunities to learn through play.
The TK program is new to the district. It is an exciting opportunity for children below the age of five to have access to high-quality early learning expenses before kindergarten. For more information on our Transitional Kinder program, please call our office!
Congratulations to the Touchet Elementary students chosen for the month of September to have lunch & ice cream with the principal.
How do students get chosen? Each month students have the opportunity to earn behavior slips by showing respect, solving problems, and/or making good decisions. The behavior slip gets put into a drawing. Students whose slips get drawn get to have lunch with the principal and receive an ice-cream treat.
Touchet Third Graders received their first delivery of free books from a Fellowship Grant through the Walla Walla Rural Library on Friday afternoon. Each month for 10 months our third graders will receive a free book to take home and our classroom will receive 10 brand new books for its library. Over the course of the year the students will each get 10 new books of their very own to keep and our classroom library will accumulate 100 additional books! Thank you Walla Walla Rural Library for your partnership to improve literacy!
Touchet School District has teamed up with Microsoft's Technology Education and Literacy in School (TEALS) Program. TEALS is a program that pairs schools with industry volunteers and proven computer science curricula. This program design is to equip our Touchet Students for future careers in computer science. We are excited to share a few pictures of the program in action - implementing lossy compression algorithms for photo files.
Our Touchet Students are using Code.org while in a Zoom Meeting learning from our volunteer computer science professionals from Seattle and Portland, while Mr. Genereux facilitates and guides the learning in the classroom.

Touchet students had fun in the sun during Shark Week of summer school.
Touchet School teamed up with Gear Up to offer kindergarten through 12th-grade students a memorable summer school experience. With three weeks of summer school complete, the students have walked the plank, made and tasted lemonade, set up and taken down tents, made solar-powered ovens for s'mores, learned how to tie survival knots, and found star constellations using the star walk app.
The students and staff are excited for the final two weeks of summer school. Up next, we have shark week and bubble week—a big shout-out to our summer school staff for providing our students the opportunity to learn and play.

Last night, the FFA Donkey Basketball fundraiser brought many laughs and smiles as the Touchet FFA team took on Burbank FFA and then the Touchet Staff.
Donkey Basketball is a basketball game played on the backs of donkeys. The donkeys are all well trained and set in their ways, thus making the game unpredictable.
Thank you to all of you who came and supported the Touchet FFA.
