Principal Message


We hope that you had a relaxing weekend with your family!

Two more days to hit our 450 student goal for Run for the Heights! We can do it!!! We have 199 students right now.

This year our 5K will be a color run!!!!! Checkout youtube videos of different color runs, and share the excitement with your children. The Fun Run will not have color, only the 5K.

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 check out 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 while promoting HEALTH and WELLNESS for all.

Thank you,

Tara Bailey

While this event has been around since the school opened, it is still our strongest fundraiser. With just one 5K registration per student, we will meet our goal of 875 5K registrations. If you have already registered your family, thank you so much for your support! If you have not, please consider this great cause. These funds benefit our students by providing enrichment programs, funding field trips, and bringing in renowned authors for our kids to meet. As an added bonus, Mrs. Bailey has offered an incentive of allowing our registered students to show their Run for the Heights spirit by coming to school with colored hair, if we hit our goal of 450 students registered for either event. Show your support for Tuscany Heights and register by January 31st!
