Celebrating 10 Years of Tiger Traditions
Tuscany Heights Elementary
"We, THE Tigers, will be inspired to LEAD, HONOR, and EXCEL today!"
It's RED RIBBON WEEK this week for our school! See below for details about dress for the week.
Wow, what an amazing week this past week! We enjoyed having conversations with all of the parents this week regarding your child's celebrations, as well as their goals during parent-teacher conferences.
Our end of the grading period awards assembly was fantastic! We recognized the attendance, behavior, and academic work of our students at the beginning of the year. We look forward to seeing the students grow. As a treat for our staff and students, PTA Presented...The Power Within by Magician Oscar Munoz and our admin team handed out popsicles to wrap up the event. We are so proud of our staff and students. See social media for pictures!
We recognized many students this week for their amazing art work in the PTA Presents Fiesta Medal Art Contest. We have almost 30 students receive Honorable Mention Ribbons, and we recognized each grade level winner. We announced our Grand Winner, Samuel Granados, from Mrs. Shelby's Kinder Classroom. His "Dancing Tiger" Art Submission took the judges by surprise by including Tusky the Tiger and maracas to embed THE and a Fiesta flare. We can't wait to have his medal become a reality for our 1st Annual Tuscany Heights Medal Contest.
Our school fundraiser kicks off soon! We appreciate your support in the coming weeks. It helps us fund instructional materials and field trips to support our students' growth. Thank you in advance!
The KINDNESS Campaign continues! Ask your child if they are taking on the challenges! We love hearing how they are spreading kindness. Thank you for helping us brighten the day for many. This week's challenges are:
10/28 Read a book to someone
10/29 Tell someone why they are special to you
10/30 Pick one toy that you don’t play with anymore and donate to someone
