Principal Martin Huff admonished everyone to get involved with sports or a club, and volunteer in the community, saying “You’ll meet people, develop new interests, and grow as a person.”
FCCLA leader Rene’ Ketchum hinted at a Dine-In Dinner, and a long-term community partnership idea in the works. Sorry, I cannot reveal the details yet. But I think you’ll approve.

Kathy Welch posted on TES PTO: Hoping to just get some info out there: Music & Arts will be in the elementary cafeteria today (Aug. 31) from 3-6pm to rent instruments for band students. This is only one option, but this is the company that comes to us every two weeks. It's not a 3 hour meeting - you can come any time during that time and someone from the store will explain their rental plan. Thanks!
TES Principal Angela Norberg Bacon posted on TES PTO: I have a family in need of housing - they have Emergency HUD and can afford $450 a month for rent. They need a two bedroom. They would really like to remain in the Toledo School District. Please let me know if you have something available.
Contact her on Facebook.
Mark your calendars: Mayor Steve Dobosh issued an early alert for an End of Summer Clean Up Day, to meet 8 a.m. at City Park September 16, 2017 with the usual outdoor accoutrements - boots & gloves, rakes, loppers, weedeaters, etc. Open to all ages. Contact him directly, (360)864-4829.

On that note, Sheila Richardson posts: Please message me if you would like to buy eggs. We have young chickens and too many of them! They are treated well, live in a huge pen and as soon as my garden is done, will return to free range.
Health Corner: How Childhood Trauma Affects Health Across A Lifetime
TSD Supt. Chris Rust posted this link last week to a TED Talk on A.C.E. and how childhood trauma correlates to specific health issues over a lifetime. Very revealing.
Supt. Rust also recommended to me this book on the answer to childhood trauma. Stay tuned.
*Thanks to Superintendent Rust for the link.
Newly released study: Drinking four cups of coffee daily lowers risk of death. By 64%, I might add.
This expands on a much larger long-term study from 5 years ago that reported significant if lower percentages involving 400,000 AARP members over more than 10 years.
