What's New at Table Mound Elementary
This school year is now in full swing — and it all started with day one. Check out this year’s first day of school video:
At this kickoff, several teachers and Principal Hull volunteered to play one of the games being sold through the fundraiser, a jelly bean tasting game. Flavors included marshmallow, toothpaste, grass, rotten eggs, sour milk, and more. Can you tell from the expressions whether they chose a good-tasting jelly bean or one that was not as pleasant tasting?
At its July meeting, the Dubuque Community School District Board of Education approved the appointment of Matthew Hull as the new principal of Table Mound Elementary School beginning in the 2016-2017 school year. Hull is currently the instructional coach at Fulton Elementary School, a role he has held since 2009.
As principal of Table Mound, Hull will be responsible for the strategic and day-to-day operations of the school, which serves approximately 420 students and almost 60 professional and support staff.
Students and teachers of 4th Grade helped give the butterfly gardens a new look by weeding, pulling out old, overgrown plants, and replacing with new plants and mulch donated by Miller Logging. The gardens also received two birdhouses built, donated, and installed by Bruce Novak, assisted by his 4th grade grandson, Jarrett.
