Tuscany Heights

Celebrating 10 Years of Tiger Traditions

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.

Tuscany's Fall Scholastic Book Fair is here!

Bailey's Bulletin

Parents,


We can't wait to see all the Fiesta Medal Artwork!


If you haven't talked to your child about it yet, please do! We are having a contest with the students. The teachers took between October 16-18th to provide instructions and some thoughts about what students might like to design. The entry forms went home this past week and students can work on it at home over the weekend. All forms are due October 21st and judging will take place on October 22nd. We will have prizes for the top art submissions and the overall winner will have their medal come to live in honor of the 10th Anniversary for THE. We also have King Rey Feo LXXII joining us this spring! What a fun honor!!!


We have parent conferences this week! Please take the time to schedule one with your child's teacher. We want to brag on all of our boys and girls, and also share their goals we are looking forward to helping them master.


We have enjoyed the KINDNESS Campaign! Ask your child if they are taking on the challenges! You will love to hear how they are spreading kindness. Thank you for helping us brighten the day for many. This week's challenges are:


10/21 Hold the door open for someone
