Principal Message


Thank you for coming out to Chick-fil-a this past week to support our Eat for a Cause! We had a successful night thanks to our staff, students, and parents.

We are one week away from our annual Run for the Heights Event. We look forward to having fun with our THE Community! We hope you will join us if you haven't already signed up for the event. It will be fun!

Have a great week!

Thank you,

Jump Rope for Heart

Jump Rope for Heart Information

Did you know that February is Heart Month? We have been working to make our hearts healthy at Tuscany! We have spent the entire month jump roping to learn jump rope skills and to help us stay healthy. We are kicking off our Jump Rope for Heart campaign to help the American Heart Association raise money. We have been sending home information this week and we already have several students who have gone online and registered and collected money. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail us at school. An important note: our campus does NOT work towards the prizes on the back of your collection envelope. We ONLY work towards collecting the Zoo Crew animals with lanyards that are shown on the bottom of your collection packet. Thank you for all your help!

Yours in fitness,

Mrs. Burges & Ms. Kaufman
