Message from Administration

Dear Tuscany Heights Elementary Parents,

What a great way to start December. From our wonderful 3rd grade musical performance on Tuesday, to our author visits from Nathan Hale and Emma Virjan, and finally to our surprise snow visit on Thursday evening. Some memorable experiences to say the least!

This coming week we have our Tuscany Choir representing THE to share some holiday cheer at the San Antonio Airport, Brookdale Hollywood Park Assisted Living and Stone Oak HEB. These students and their choir directors have practiced very hard all semester and we are thrilled to see their efforts showcased at these various locations.

On Friday, December 13th, is our P.E. Dance Day. A flyer went out earlier this week with the times for each grade level. We hope that you can come and enjoy some dancing with your loved ones here that day.

As a continued reminder from last week, safety is always our number one focus and we appreciate your efforts to refrain from dropping off until 7:00 a.m., when our staff is on campus to supervise our students. In the afternoon car rider line, your car rider tag is a must in order to match your students to the right vehicle/adult. As part of this process, please remember to keep that tag visible at all times as our staff needs that tag in order to expedite our car rider line. We know that the rain impacted our car rider line a few times this week and we thank you for your patience. As a reminder, if you foresee a change in transportation due to the weather or other circumstances, we ask you to please communicate that by 2:00 with our front office.

We also have Winter Parties this month on the 22nd. Please see the party schedule posted in the "Upcoming Events" section below.

This is a joyous time of year, as well as a very busy time of year for all. We hope that you and your family will help us make this a great end to a wonderful first semester.

Our students are working hard and making great gains in their data. Don't forget to ask them about their goals.

Thank you in advance for your support!
