Grits for Grands

Look for our S'more later this week to give details about our 2nd Annual Grits for Grands Event!

Titan Nation-Up for a Friendly FM District Challenge... I know we can win!!!

As you may/may not know, the district launched an official district app on the first day of school this year. The app provides quick access to tools including the tip line, important school and district information, calendars, Peachjar, menus, and more. This app also allows you the ability to “follow” individual schools.

The district is running a district-wide competition beginning Monday, September 23 and will run until October 31 to see which school can get the most parent follows. Parents will need to both download the app and select your school to follow. A prize will be given to one school with the most followers at each level– elementary, middle, and high school.

We only get votes if you download and follow Tega Cay Elementary. If you have children at multiple schools, you can follow that school too!

The winners will announce the winner the first week of November.

Can you help Tega Cay win??? Download today!

Gold/Yellow Day in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we would like to honor children everywhere by wearing the color Gold/Yellow on Friday, September 27th. You can also bring in one dollar (or more) to donate to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital on this special day. This is a very important cause to our Titan community as one of our own 4th grade students was recently diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is currently receiving treatment at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Let’s Light it Up Gold to raise awareness and show our support!

At home you can also upload pictures of you or your family wearing gold and post to our school website or our Twitter Account @tegacaytitans.
