TTES Performing Arts Club: A December to Remember

Merry Christmas!!!

Please enjoy some Holiday Cheer from some of our 🐯's!

In lieu of a live, on-stage performance, our 4th and 5th grade Performing Arts Club students recorded scenes and songs from "A December to Remember" (by John Jacobson, adapted by K. Arencibia) to share with our TTES Family.

Here is the link if you wish to view.

12/14/2020

During this 2020 school year, The Tarawa Terrace Elementary School Parent Teachers Association (TTES PTA) has had to consistently change the concepts on which they have always operated. "A Night at the Nutcracker (A drive thru experience)" ,hosted by the TTES PTA, grew out of the need to "re-invent the wheel " and provide continued support to our Military connected families, teachers and staff in a way that was as safe as possible in this time of coronavirus uncertainty.

On Friday, December 11, 2020 cars drove through the assigned area starting with the PTA table and then traveled through different realms (Land of the Sweets, Land of the Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, Land of Amusement) and finally end with a station designated for Santa. At each station a token of previously quarantined goodies was be handed out by Marines in dress blues wearing masks and gloves.

The PTA would like to thank the following individuals, businesses, and units for their help that made the night a success:
Mrs. Faulkner, Mr. Walton, Mrs. Pritchett, Ms. Scott, Sgt. Major Brian Price, Marines of Combat Logistics Battalion 8, Camp Lejeune Fire and Emergency Services, Dance Theatre of Jacksonville, Irina Wardana Photography, Liene Stevens, GySgt. Brett and Heather Wagner, Ms. Lynn. Ms. Jordan, TTES Student Government Association, and all of the other countless TTES PTA volunteers.

To our installation communities:

Recent reports of alarming spikes in COVID-19 cases locally and nationwide are grim reminders our bases and stations are in for an exceptionally challenging period ahead. With the advent of colder weather and the holiday season approaching, each of us needs to take responsibility for ourselves and each other NOW to mitigate further spread of the virus.

Up to this point, our operational forces have been able to train while CDCs, schools, gyms, commissaries and exchanges remained open, due in large part to the painstaking work of our public health officials. Unfortunately, this sense of normalcy has gradually given way to a false sense of security, leading many of us to let our guard down which has sadly resulted in more infections that could have been prevented.

Contact tracing performed by Base Preventative Medicine has noted multiple instances of small group gatherings at training evolutions, classes, and break rooms where personnel did not adhere to the COVID-19 mitigation practices of Wear, Wash, and Wait. There have been numerous cases generated from house parties and other small gatherings resulting in dozens of days of isolation and quarantine for active duty, civilian workers, and family members. Additionally, there have been people who have gone to work sick while awaiting COVID testing results, only to find out they are positive and exposed a significant number of co-workers. Perhaps the most egregious examples are those personnel who forget to wear their masks in close quarters around colleagues at work, ignoring the fact that each of these individuals may have exposed themselves in other small gatherings or sporting events outside the workplace. While these examples of complacency are mostly isolated, it only takes one incident to bring down an entire unit.

If we want to avoid another wave of lockdowns and a potential return to HPCON CHARLIE, we cannot accept business as usual. We cannot get tired. It will take intrusive leadership at all levels. It requires brilliance in the basics--masks, social distancing, and hand washingβ€”and the discipline to adhere to these simple protocols that have saved lives.

We often think we are a younger population that generally feels invulnerable to this disease, but 1/3 of our COVID cases are under 24, and 77% are under 49 years old. Even more so, our casual approach to this disease can have fatal consequences for those high-risk groups among us, namely the elderly. So do the right thing every time, all the time.

Our nation is depending on us to be ready to fight tonight.

Take care of yourselves and each other. With your help, we will get through this.

Semper Fidelis,

J. D. ALFORD

Major General, U.S. Marine Corps

Question is the virtual schooling teacher based with a teacher instructing via web call, or is it parent based with instructional periods taught by the parent?
Singing and dancing through enrichment with Prek this week.

Attention Mrs. Green's Class: (And all our friends!) Yesterday was low screen day and getting outside to do sidewalk chalk was on our list of things to have fun with. Look who I found on my driveway! Can you tell who they are? If so, let us know: 1. Who is holding a tablet πŸ’», 2. Who is shooting a spider web πŸ•ΈπŸ•·, and 3. Who has a rainbow 🌈 in their hand and two pom poms on their head? 😝 You can use initials of their names (here's a hint: WS, NS, BB)

Thank you TTES!!
TTES's First virtual field trip for prek! We went live from Piggies by the Sea to learn all about pigs. Did you know pigs have hair, not fur and shed once a year.? They also live 15 to 18 years! You cant stop us from learning! @dodeaamerica's @Dodeamidatlantic
No idea what this offer entails and I’m certainly not endorsing any for profit endeavor but so many are struggling to find child care with school out, I thought I would share a potential resource for those who work in the occupations described.
I want to send a big shout out to the teachers at Tarawa Terrace. I have 3 kids at the school and all 3 teachers have been phenomenal at communications over the last few days.
Happy Valen-SLIMES Day!! πŸ’• The STEAM Club joined in for some super science fun with Mr. Willis' LIMS class. Working together to show that we are ALL capable of great things!
