***CONGRATULATIONS, MR. GANGWISH!!!***
Third grade teacher, Mr. Gangwish, was chosen by his colleagues as Teacher of the Year at Terrell. From his first day on our campus, Mr. Gangwish has made learning fun, encouraged students to read, and has made an incredibly positive impact on Terrell students and families. He also took charge of starting Student Council and hosted AR Nights in the computer lab. On Wednesday, he will be honored by San Jose Unified School District.
CONGRATULATIONS, TEACHER OF THE YEAR!
Music for Minors
Did you know that Terrell has been offering music to first grade students through a program known as Music for Minors? Each of the three first grade classes has a music lesson once a week provided by a docent from Music for Minors. We pay a small fee for this wonderful enrichment program at Terrell. We would love to see this program expand next year for first graders as well as kindergarten students. However, we need volunteers! Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer? Do you love music? Consider looking further into Music for Minors. No experience necessary. Music For Minors will train you. Training is a combination of class lecture and in the classroom experiences beginning in mid September, once a week for about 10 weeks. It includes basic music theory, songs and games, rhythm and movement activities, lesson plan demos and classroom strategies. Call Music For Minors at 650-237-9130 or visit www.mfm.org for more information.
On Thursday, April 4, we hosted a very special assembly - the Ives String Quartet was on campus for a performance, and we invited Grades 2, 3 and 5 to participate.
