TPCS Family Update

December 12th to December16th, 2022

Information for Families

Dear Stinger Families,

It is hard to believe that there are only 9 school days left until the holiday break. We have lots of activities planned to keep the students busy at school until December 22nd. Our very popular Kids Only Shopping Room will be opening for two days next week on Monday, December 19th and Tuesday, December 20th. There is information below including the schedule of classes scheduled on each day. The funds raised from this event support student activities in the school throughout the year. Thank you to all of the families that have donated household items, toys, stuffed animals, gift wrap and bags. We are still accepting donations until Friday, December 16th. We appreciate all of the help as we could not run this event without the support of the staff and school community. If you are able to help with gift wrapping on either day the Shopping Room is open, please email Mrs. Nitschke (

The school is still looking for adults willing to volunteer in our library for an hour and half each week from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm or 12:50 pm to 2:20 pm. Thank you to those that have already volunteered. Please reach out to Mrs. Nitschke at the school if you are interested in supporting this initiative. We are excited to reopen our Library and Makerspace in the New Year.

December can be an enchanting and special time of year for some, but it can also be a very difficult month. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at the school if you need support.

Take care and BEE well,

Mrs. Nitschke, Mme Aikens and the TPCS School Team

Message for Kindergarten Families

A recent assessment conducted by KFL&A Public Health has found that a number of kindergarten students in our area do not have an immunization record on file. Don’t forget that you must submit your student’s immunization record to KFL&A Public Health when you register your child for Kindergarten. Visit if you have not yet provided your student’s immunization record.
