ARTAPALOOZA SHIRTS

Artapalooza shirts are now available to order! 

Shirts will be sent home with the youngest child if there are multiple children at Tanglewood. Shirts are $10 each.  


SPLASH DAY

3rd Annual Tanglewood Splash Day Friday, April 28th! 


Splash Day consists of non-competitive events designed only for the pure enjoyment of being outside and participating in physical activities.  Some of the stations include a water activity, so the students might get a little wet!  The students should wear Tanglewood spirit clothes to school (no swim suits please) and tennis shoes.  First grade students and Clayton day care students should bring an extra set of spirit clothes to change into after Splash Day is over. 

Parents are invited to attend Splash Day and volunteers are needed to run the 13 stations.  Please Sign-Up Genius link.

Your child will participate as follows:

First Grade Splash Day- 8:30-10:00 a.m.

Second Grade Splash Day- 1:00-2:30 p.m.*

*Second grade parents- Your child’s homeroom teacher will have a sign-out sheet should you decide to take your child home directly after the event.  It will not count against the Treasure Box.  First grade students are expected to stay all day.

Looking forward to a fun-filled day for everyone!
