Tuscany Heights

Celebrating 10 Years of Tiger Traditions

Tuscany Heights Elementary

Tuscany Heights is the 168th Lighthouse School in the Nation as recognized by Stephen Covey. Through student leadership, we grow leaders that encompass a growth mindset and establish lifelong skills that will support our students as they grow into adults. Our mission is a living action statement that we use to guide Team Tuscany, as we do great things for all.


"We, THE Tigers, will be inspired to LEAD, HONOR, and EXCEL today!"

Bailey's Bulletin

Parents,


As we have embarked into our second year as an NEISD STEAM School, Tuscany Heights has worked on creating opportunities throughout the grade levels for 1-2 project based learning units to take place. We have also created STEAM in a classroom rotation for specials. Although we continue to grow and expand this to all, as well as, increase the frequency of opportunities for kids, we are very focused on keeping ART alive in the schools. You will see art all around us:


Bulletin Boards throughout the building,

Art to Remember Projects (fall and spring)

Veterans Day Art happening in STEAM now,

Fiesta Medal Art Contest and more to come!


This is our first year to celebrate student art through a Fiesta Medal. We encourage you to Pre-Order your 1st Annual Fiesta Medal designed by Kinder student, Samuel Granados, this year. We hope to make this a traditional art piece for our students. This will allow us to recognize multiple student art pieces and honor a student with a grand prize, their artwork on the medal. We will place an order for medals based on the number of pre-orders. Start your collection now!


Our school fundraiser kicks off soon! We appreciate your support in the coming weeks. It helps us fund instructional materials and field trips to support our students' growth. Thank you in advance!


We had a fabulous month and week with KINDNESS and RED RIBBON. We hope you enjoyed seeing, receiving, encouraging, and sharing kindness along with your students.


Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey
