SY20 TCES Family Issue #18

A Week: 1/20 - 1/24/2020

Dear TCES Community,


Today, we celebrate the life and achievements of Martin Luther King, Jr. Last week, some classes began learning about this courageous hero who inspired millions of people to right a historical wrong. Other classes will learn more about him this week.


Warm regards,

Lindsay Brenfleck
