168th Lighthouse School in the Nation, Building Leaders

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


It has been a grand week celebrating with our students. From seeing Kindergarteners reach their goals to our THE Choir perform, we are making great things happen here! Your children are AMAZING!

Join us Monday, Dec. 17th at 9:30am, for our Pre-K Storytime. You are welcome to share with any 3, 4, and 5 year olds that might like to come. We will have music, crafts, and a great story!

We had a wonderful visit this past week from Leadership North East, School Board, Executive Staff, and Dr. Gottardy. We hosting their December LNE Meeting, and we had the pleasure of giving them a tour around campus. Our THE Choir, student speakers, greeters, tour guides, and tiger paparazzi leaders were fantastic. I heard so many compliments about how wonderful our students are and what a great job they did in their leadership roles. I second that! Thank you for sharing them with us.

Proud Principal,

Reaching New Heights, Tuscany Heights PTA

Book Donations for Olmos

This year we are asking Tuscany Heights families to synergize and help us meet our goal of collecting 630 new books, one for each Olmos student! The books can be for boys or girls in grades pre-k to 5th. Donation boxes are located in the front entryway and next to the Christmas Tree in the rotunda. We will be taking donations until December 17th, the books will be delivered before winter break. We currently have about 210 books donated, so we need a lot more to reach our goal! Please consider picking up a book while you’re out shopping or running errands this weekend. Thank you for helping us brighten the holiday season for the students at Olmos Elementary.
