Books & Pajamas

As part of our school wide reading culture we have designated the first Wednesday of every month will be “Books & Pajamas” day at school. Several times during the day all students and staff will drop everything and read in order to create more time for reading during the school day. Students are allowed to wear pajamas on these days.

What Is New at Tesfa for 2018-2019

One of our goals at Tesfa is to improve and grow as a school and community each year. Consequently, our team has been working to plan and prepare to make Tesfa an even better school.

For 2018-2019 Tesfa will:

  • Provide a dedicated iPad for each student (1 to 1) and expand our digital learning program to create deeper learning opportunities.
  • Implement a tutoring program during the day and after school.
  • Structure all classes to be single grade (no combining of grades in classes).
  • Expand our field trips to approximately 6 per year, per class. This will allow one field trip for each Unit of Inquiry.

Please call us at 651-717-4844 if you have any questions or ideas about how to make our school even better.
