168th Lighthouse School in the Nation, Building Leaders

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


It has been a fantastic February week! Students worked hard on benchmarks by showing all that they have learned. We had a dynamite family STEAM Wellness event with community members and families. We look forward to making this an annual event. Thank you for supporting us! Checkout the social media links above to see pictures from all of our events each week.

We are planning a family dance night in March for our families. Let me know if you would like to help plan this event. As a team, we can make it a fun event for all!

Don't forget Dr. Gottardy, Superintendent, reads to Pre-K students Tuesday, Feb. 19th. We are also hosting a fun night for FUTURE Kindergartens on Wednesday, Feb. 20th. We hope you will come explore our school and talk with our staff. Thank you for helping us spread the word! It is a great day to be a TIGER!

Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey

Kinder Round Up

Be sure to tell any “Future Tigers” that you may know about our Kinder Round Up happening on February 20th from 5:30-6:30. The kids can meet some of our special area teachers, tour the kinder rooms, meet our fabulous team of Kinder teachers and stop by the library for story time with Mrs. Johnson on the way out. We can’t wait to meet some of our future Tiger Families!

Lost and Found!

Please be sure to label your child's belongings...lunch boxes, water bottles, sweaters, jackets, backpacks, etc., this makes it easy for us to return lost items to students so that they don’t end up in our overflowing lost and found.

NEISD Council PTA Used Book Sale

Are you in the process of cleaning and decluttering? Be sure to hold on to any books, DVD’s and CD’s you may have and donate them in March to our annual NEISD Council PTA Used Book Sale! We will be collecting books and appropriate items all through the month of March.

Calling all Student Volunteers!

Does your student volunteer at Tuscany Heights through patrols, broadcasting, library lifesavers or any other leadership position? Does your student do community service through scouts or your church? Does your student volunteer at any organizations such as a food bank or animal shelter? If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, we want to know so we can acknowledge your child! If you already have an account at the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) website then don't forget to log your child's hours. If you are new to logging hours, please create a PVSA account for your Tiger so you can start logging. Full instructions can be found on the Tuscany Heights PTA website:
