Elementary Field Day:
The TCS elementary had its annual Field Day on Tuesday. Students enjoyed sprints, long distance races, softball throws, relay races and many other friendly field games. It was a blast to watch the students engage in friendly competition.

We encourage elementary students and parents to check the lost and found in the elementary office before the end of the day. Items not picked up by today will be donated to a local thrift store.
