Principal Message


We've had a great week! Don't forget it is a 3-Day Weekend. We will see everyone on Tuesday, January 17th.

Let's hit our target for Run for the Heights. We have a Target/Goal to increase student participation in our awesome fundraiser. Help us hit the bullseye!

Please take a moment to checkout all the information in the PTA News for Run for the Heights. We would love to have you all join us Saturday, March 4th. If you are unavailable, there are opportunities to still support your child's school and stay "tucked in" at home.

Let's make this the best year yet!!!

Thank you,

Tara Bailey

This event is more than a fundraiser. Run for the Heights has become a Community wide event that many businesses and neighbors look forward to attending. In its seventh year, Run for the Heights has continued to provide so many enriching opportunities that engage our students and support our staff. By having just one registration per student, we will be able to meet our goal and continue to make Tuscany Heights one of the best schools around!!
