The 4th annual Skypeathon kicks off around the world on November 13th. TES students will once again participate and try to travel the most virtual miles in 48 hours. New this year is an expanded after school session that will run on November 13th until 6pm. Students will participate in virtual field trips with museums, participate in Mystery Skypes, and connect with classrooms around the world. Microsoft this year will be donating educational resources for up to 35,000 children in need through a partnership with the WE Organization for every 400 virtual miles traveled. Help TES not only have a great learning experience but help those in need.
Parents are encouraged to attend the after school session on the 13th but space will be limited to just one parent per child. If your child would like to participate, please fill out the permission slip and have them return to school by Monday November 12th.
