Message from Administration

Dear Tuscany Heights Elementary Parents,


We hope that you've had a great weekend! We look forward to greeting our students tomorrow.


I would like to call your attention to the Run for the Heights information that was sent out earlier, yet I included the information in the eblast this week. Our BIG Fundraiser will kick-off February 6th. Things are a little different this year, but in an effort to give more opportunity for all students to be involved. Scroll down for the section on Boosterthon for more information.


We had a fantastic Leader in Me School Tour Visit Thursday. Our students did a wonderful job showcasing our school. Checkout some of the pictures below, and thank you to everyone for making this a success. Our school is something to brag about thanks to all of our students, staff, PTA Volunteers, and families. THANK YOU!


We are wrapping up this month and heading into a busy February. Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be taking more district benchmarks this month. Check with teacher for more specific information.


If possible, I would love to have as many parents as possible join me at Reagan High School Tuesday night for the presentation on David's Law. See the flyer below for more information.


Enjoy your week!


Sincerely,

Tara Bailey

Leader in Me/ Ligthhouse Covey School Tour

Tuscany Heights Elementary was one of seven schools invited to host a school tour for the Leader in Me Symposium. This is a distinguished honor to be selected, as educators from all over the world visit these campuses to gather leadership ideas that they can take back and implement at their schools.

We had an exciting time watching our student leaders. We are so proud of our students, staff, families, and volunteers for making Tuscany's environment an impressive one. In central Texas, we have 70 schools that follow the Leader in Me habits, yet we only have 17 schools in central Texas that have reached Lighthouse Status. I am so proud of our school!

Run for the Heights Boosterthon

Parents,

Run for the Heights has been our annual fun-run fundraiser, the one big fundraiser, for our school since Tuscany Heights opened. We are making a few changes this year to support getting all students involved. We wanted to reach out to our families now as the kick-off is coming up next month.

This year, we are working with Boosterthon to make this an event during the school day so that all of our students are impacted by the wellness benefits that come from our annual run. We are excited about the change and having all of our students involved. Please see the letter below for more details about our upcoming Run for the Heights kick-off since it will include all of our staff and students.

Thank you,

Tara Bailey

Go Kids Challenge

It’s that time of year for our students to participate in the Go!Kids Challenge! Go!Kids Challenge is a six-week program that encourages students to be active and make water their drink of choice. Students have a tracking log they will keep in their leadership binders at school during the six-week challenge. If they can accomplish completing at least 5 of the healthy habits listed for each week during the 6 weeks, they will receive ONE FREE 1-day ticket to Sea World! Students will be responsible for logging their healthy choices in their tracker by bubbling in each healthy choice they made. The Go!Kids Challenge will run January 15th through February 23rd. We encourage all of our students to participate. Parents, feel free to make those healthy choices with your students as well! Thank you for your support!

Be Our Guest- Johnson HS theater

Your family can experience a “tale as old as time” right here in our community as Johnson High School Fine Arts Department presents Disney’s timeless classic, Beauty & the Beast! Audiences of all ages will be swept away in what promises to be more than just a show, but an experience to remember.

Get up close and personal for a photo-op with the Beast, sample the “gray stuff, it’s delicious,” and let your imagination take you to far-off places as the talented cast, crew, and orchestra enchants you with an evening of story and song.

When a provincial girl offers herself as prisoner to a hideous beast in order to save her father, the fate of the Beast—a cursed prince—and his enchanted subjects falls into her hands. If she can’t help him learn to love and be loved before his twenty-first birthday, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. And time is running out. . . “For who could ever learn to love a beast?”

Johnson High School Fine Arts Department invites you to “be our guest!” Our wish is to perform in front of a sold out audience at each of our four performances. For best availability and convenience, you can purchase tickets online:

www.johnsontheatre.com

Our show runs through:

Thursday February 1st, 7:00 pm

Friday February 2nd, 7:00 pm

Saturday February 3rd, 7:00 pm

Sunday February 4th, 2:00 pm

All shows are in the Johnson High School Auditorium.

The address is:

23203 Bulverde Rd.

San Antonio, TX 78259


As a final touch of magic, our generous sponsors have donated prizes for a silent auction. Bid and you could win local eatery gift cards, theatre tickets, an Elsa & Anna princess birthday party appearance, or even a Spurs Box tickets dinner package worth $1200!
