We hope that you had a wonderful break! We look forward to seeing the students return tomorrow.

When we return, we will have flu shots on that first day if you returned an order form by Nov. 11th. On November 28, 2016, if you submitted a form, we will call your student in for the flu shot and return him/her to class. We are scheduled to give the flu shot between 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

If you have any questions, you can email our School Nurse, Mrs. Donna Hunsicker BSN, RN, CPN at

Trash Free Lunch – Our Tigers will be promoting a better environment through a trash free lunch on Thursday, Dec. 1st. Tray lunches are automatic – but if you bring your lunch, please have recyclable or reusable containers. Our cafeteria, custodians, administrations, and students have worked toward greatly reducing the amount of trash produced in our cafeteria daily. Show them and the earth that you care and let’s go TRASH FREE!!! The winning class from each grade will get extra recess.

Run for the Heights

Some of you caught me with GREEN & BLUE hair recently! We are advertising for a new incentive this year. We are hoping to get 450 Tuscany students registered by January 31st. If we do, we will allow all students registered for the 2017 RFTH to wear their RFTH shirt and hair color on March 3rd, day before run. We are doing this, because the Kids Fun Run this year will be a color run. Most importantly, we want to encourage our young students to participate in a great wellness activity that supports our community school. Thank you for enrolling soon!
