Tuscany Heights

Celebrating 10 Years of Tiger Traditions

Tuscany Heights Elementary

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.


"We, THE Tigers, will be inspired to LEAD, HONOR, and EXCEL today!"

Bailey's Bulletin

Parents,


Sleep-in one more day! There's NO SCHOOL on Monday, February 17th for students. It is a professional development day for our staff.


Thank you for helping us celebrate Wednesday at the Daddy-Daughter Event. Our little girls loved having their fathers, stepdads, uncles, and/or granddads do their hair and nails. It was such a sweet moment! Thank you Rico Tafoya, Lead WatchDOG, for making this possible for our families. Paul Mitchell did a wonderful job sharing their time and resources with us.


Don't forget this year is Tuscany Heights Elementary's 10th Anniversary! We have enjoyed 10 years of Tiger Traditions at the Greatest School on Earth. We look forward to having you all help us celebrate this milestone on March 16th @5-6pm. Help us spread the date of this event with the community. We hope former families, students, and staff will join us in the celebration. Flyer is added below and will be on social media as well. Thank you for sharing it!


Thank you for sharing your children with us!


Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey

3rd Grade STEAM Project Based Learning

Third Grade STEAM Project

Third graders at Tuscany Heights are learning about weather and rapid changes to earth’s surface. The unit includes a visit from a meteorologist, learning how to research, presenting projects and some are even building models. We have expanded this unit to incorporate it into the school’s STEAM initiative.

This year, we will once again participate in the United Way Shoebox Project. During many of these rapid weather changes, families must leave their home and some lose their possessions. We are asking third graders to bring in a standard size shoebox for this project. Shoeboxes can be filled with personal care items to donate to the United Way for distribution to these families. While third grade is leading this project, we are asking all Tuscany Heights families to participate with donations. Items that may be donated include:


· Adhesive Bandages

· Baby wipes

· Shampoo

· Conditioner

· Deodorant

· Hair Comb/Brush

· Soap/Body Wash

· Hand Sanitizer

· Toothbrush and Toothpaste

· Lotion


We would like to have all shoeboxes and donations sent to school by February 28th. Thank you for your support!
