Tuscany Heights

Celebrating 10 Years of Tiger Traditions

Tuscany Heights Elementary

Tuscany Heights is the 168th Lighthouse School in the Nation as recognized by Stephen Covey. Through student leadership, we grow leaders that encompass a growth mindset and establish lifelong skills that will support our students as they grow into adults. Our mission is a living action statement that we use to guide Team Tuscany, as we do great things for all.


"We, THE Tigers, will be inspired to LEAD, HONOR, and EXCEL today!"

Bailey's Bulletin

Parents,


It has been a busy week at Tuscany! We have:

transitioned our schedules to add a sixth 5th Grade Teacher to help reduce class sizes,

hired a full time Pre-K Assistant, and

hosted the BEST Grandparents in the world. Thank you for sharing your loved ones with us.


We appreciate our staff, student leaders, and PTA Volunteers for making Breakfast with Grandparents a success. Our line did get backed up, and we quickly worked to troubleshoot. Thank you to Mrs. Ross and Mrs. Staples for helping me cover breakfast for our visitors! We were able to get the line moving a bit faster for all that attended. Having so many visitors is certainly a wonderful thing, and we welcome them any time!


We are still working to streamline drop off and afternoon car rider pick-up. Thank you for taking time to look over these safety tips and procedures:


pulling all the way down so that as many cars can load/unload closest to the front of the school,

asking your children to be prepared to hop out of the car as soon as it stops in the car line,

seating your children on the passenger side of the car, closest to the curb, where we can safely have them exit the car on the sidewalk,

stay in line until all cars move forward,

use the crosswalk where our crossing guards are locating to avoid accidents,

at the intersection ensure you do not block Wilderness Oak,

ensure you do not turn from the non-turn lanes (there is only one left turn and one right turn lane), and

avoid cell phone use as it is prohibited in a school zone.


We appreciate your help in following these safety guidelines as do the parents in the line behind you!


For cars turning in to the back of the school for VIP drop-off, as well as buses, please ensure that you do not block the left turn lane on Wilderness Oak while waiting in the front car rider line. We do have buses, daycare vanes, and special program parents that need to access the back. Again, we appreciate your help in streamlining our arrival and dismissal procedures.


We are exciting for the 4th week at Tuscany Heights!



Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey

Raising Awareness Around Anxiety

Please join the Reagan Cluster on Tuesday, October 1 at 6:30 in the Reagan High School auditorium in viewing an Original documentary that explores anxiety—its causes, effects, and what we can do about it. The film features World Champion Swimmer Michael Phelps and interviews young kids and adults who suffer from anxiety. We welcome the community to join us and talk about this important issue, as well as learn about resources and tools that can help.

This is an effort to bring all schools that feed into Reagan together to understand how we can continue to understand students of all ages. This documentary is for parents with students of all ages.
