THE's Weekly eBlast

April 2, 2017

Principal Message

Parents,


We will host Kinder Round Up tomorrow, Monday, April 3rd. We look forward to meeting many of our future tigers and their families. Please share with neighbors that may wish to attend.


Last week, our 4th and 5th grade students worked hard on kicking off the first round of state testing this year. We shared a great message with the students before they got started: "We are proud of you! We know you will do your best and know you are prepared for these tests. Take a deep breath and know that the test does not define who you are at all. It gives us information on your strengths and things you can work on for the remainder of this year, but it does not define you. Again, we are proud of you and all that you bring to Tuscany." We look forward to continuing our instruction to support all of our students throughout this last grading period.


Join us Tuesday night so that we can show our appreciation to all of our "Super Hero Volunteers". We have adult and student leaders that volunteer countless hours to our school. Let's celebrate them! See the flyer at the bottom for all the specifics.


Thank you,

Tara Bailey

Principal

Warmer weather = Overflowing Lost and Found

Parents, as the weather warms up we find lots of sweaters and jackets around the school with no name on them – they end up in lost and found and it is OVERflowing! Help us out by checking closets and then sending your students on a mission to find what is lost and bring it home! ALL items will be donated to the NEISD Clothes Closet at the end of the semester.

5th grade students – 5th grade spirit is popping up all over campus. Don’t forget to show off your 5th grade spirit shirt on WILD Wednesday!
