Cash & Candy Scramble: Students may purchase their chances to grab a handful of cash and candy in the Cash & Candy Scramble. Chances may be purchased for $.50 each. On Thursday morning, after all chances have been purchased, one student’s name from each class will be from the bucket. That lucky student will participate in the Cash & Candy Scramble during our Riley Week Finale Thursday afternoon.
Gift Card Raffle: Students may purchase their chances to win a gift card and candy bar for $.50 each. On Thursday afternoon at the Riley Week Finale, we will announce the lucky winners. There will be 2 per grade level.
Knock–Out Contest: Monday through Wednesday, students may pay $1 to enter the Knock-Out Contest. We will combine grade 3-5, but there will be a separate contest for boys and girls. Then, during recess Wednesday, we will have a preliminary knockout round to reduce the field to five contestants from each grade level. At Thursday’s Riley Week Finale, we will determine our overall boy and girl winners.

Journey's First Step
Tenth Street Elementary School has recently received a huge upgrade in technology. Every classroom and most peripheral educational areas have a big screen Television that has internet access. This television has capabilities to interface with Apple products that have recently been purchased. Our corporation has recently purchased 5 IPAD Mini's for each classroom, as well as teacher a Mac Book Air for each teacher.
With our new investment there will be a transformation of experiences that your child will have in future classroom experiences. If you would like to make a donation to Tenth Street Elementary School to help with revolutionizing our instruction through technology, please contact the school. Thank you!
Tuesday, July 30 from 4:00-6:30 pm will be our registration day for the 2013-2014 school year. Please mark your calendars. Traditionally there will be a reminder in The Herald's "Back to School" issue in July.
We are very proud of all the D. I. students who participated in Fischers in April. We would like to recognize our Destination Imagination students who qualified in their division in Indiana to compete in Globals. We are proud to send them to Knoxville, Tennessee in a world-wide competition. Good luck to all. Have a lot of fun!
