Spring Party

Room coordinators are working now to plan and prepare for the students spring party. More details to come soon.


Pancake Dinner

Thanks to all who came out to our PTO sponsored Pancake Dinner. It was a huge success. Because of your generosity our PTO brought in $3,065 to be able to give back to the students and staff at TCE.



Wow! We reached and exceeded our school goal with a total of $14,000 raised. WAY TO GO! The students met each of their goals and were able to pie the principals in the face, have a HSE mascot and spirit day and each earned a headband. All students participated in a live zooms on our move-a-thon day. Students started their day with a workout with Mrs. Edwards, then had a DJ at recess, and ended the day with a dance with Mrs. Duncan. The TCE staff also shared how fun their teacher experiences have been! Thank you to all who donated to this wonderful event.


Cardinal Wishes granted

TCE 1st grade teachers requested money for a Beekeeper Expert to come present to entire first grade. 1st grade has been studying bees and wanted to bring in this expert to extend their learning with presentation. This cardinal wish was granted.
