Dear Tidalwave Families:


Happy early Valentine's Day! I hope you enjoyed your weekend as a family. A huge thank you to the Tulita PTA and our entire community for supporting  our PTA's upcoming annual Jog-A-Thon: The Cupid's Dash! We hope to see you cheering on our students on Wednesday! We are so lucky to have a learning community that is surrounded by so much support, enthusiasm, and pride. I know PTA is working hard on a successful event on Wednesday and we are excited to cheer our students on as they run around our track. 


Did you know that this Wednesday also marks the 5th birthday of the Tulita Walking School Bus? Help us celebrate and join in by walking to school on Wednesday on one of our walking school bus routes. Warm up those legs before the Cupid's Dash!


Wednesday is also Valentine's Day. Please remember that Tulita is a member of the Alliance for Healthier Generation by limiting any sweet treats on Valentine's Day. To read our wellness policy and find out more information on alternative celebration ideas, click here.
