TCS Newsletter – Friday March 1, 2019

Hello TCS families. We trust that you have had a great week. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!


Grandparents Day:

The TCS Grandparents Day program will begin at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 7th. The program will be held in the LBT main auditorium and will be approximately 30 minutes long. Grandparents of students in grades 3-5 will be invited to shop the book fair immediately after the program, while students in grades K4-2nd grade will be invited to browse the art show located in the LBT church lobby. We will then switch groups at 1:00 and will invite K4-2nd grade grandparents and students to shop the book fair while the older students browse the art show. We would like to alternate groups in order to prevent overcrowding at the book fair. We ask that grandparents bring their grandchildren back to class no later than 1:30 P.M. We look forward to celebrating our grandparents on this special day.


Reading Month:

Our annual elementary reading month celebration began on Monday. Our teachers did an awesome job of decorating all of the classrooms and hallways. Students were fascinated with the decorations when they entered the building in the morning, and they were able to enjoy our reading month kickoff assembly in the afternoon. During the month, students are encouraged to read a certain amount of minutes each week. We will have special activities each Friday during the month of March to celebrate reading month with a grand finale celebration at the end of the month.
