From the Desk of Mrs. Fields

Thank you for attending your child’s Parent/Teacher Conference this week! Our goal is to have 100% participation, and we are almost there! We hope that you continue to work closely with your child’s teacher throughout the year. Continuous communication is welcomed and wanted.


We had a great time at the Hershey Book Fair and Ice Cream Social! Look at these smiles!

PARENT SURVEY

TSC is participating in the 2015 Speak Up Survey, which is open to parents, students, school staff, and community stakeholders. The Speak Up Survey is a national initiative of Project Tomorrow. Since fall 2003, the annual Speak Up Survey has collected and reported on the views of almost 4 million K-12 students, teachers, administrators and parents representing over 30,000 schools in all 50 states. This represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder input on education, technology, 21st century skills, schools of the future, and science and math instruction.

TSC is hopeful that all students, parents, and staff will participate in the Speak Up Survey to provide their input. To complete the survey click on the link below

FALL IS HERE - WINTER IS AROUND THE CORNER

It's that time of year when the weather can change quickly. Please remind your child to wear or bring a jacket/coat daily.

We have some gently used coats and new hats, & gloves. Please contact our office if we can pass something along to you.
