Greetings Tesuque Families,

We hope your summer is providing you with some quality family time. School starts on August 16th  Preschool, 1st-6th grade. School starts August 18th for Kindergarten. So we wanted to get some information to you.

Please join us in welcoming two new staff members. Ms. Linnane Blake will be teaching first graders and Michelle Barnard will be teaching kindergarten students. Both of these teachers are experienced and highly skilled.

We will be holding an Open House and BBQ on August 15th starting at 5:30. You will have a chance to meet your child’s teacher, bring in school supplies and hear about the exciting changes at Tesuque Elementary this year. Our PTA will be hosting the BBQ and providing meat, paper goods and beverages. We ask that you bring a side dish or dessert to share.

We also wanted to let you know that, sadly, we had to cut down one of the 90 year old Elm trees because it was posing a threat to student safety and school property. The wood from the tree will be available to you to take home on the 15th. It will need to be aged, but we wanted our families to have the first chance at this fire wood. Bring your trucks and claim your firewood.

There will also be a ‘school wear’ exchange on the 15th. We understand the expense of school starting with school supplies and school uniforms. You are invited to bring in any clean, gently used shirts, shorts and pants to exchange for a different size. There will be no cost. Instead, it will be an even exchange.

We look forward to seeing you on the 15th. Please don’t hesitate to call should you have questions or suggestions, and, as always, volunteers are greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Tina Morris, Principal (505)629-5810
