Thank you Tussing Volunteers!

On behalf of the students and Staff of Tussing Elementary, we would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of our parent and community volunteers who helped us during the 2015-2016 school year.

As you know, students, staff and parents here at Tussing enjoy a warm caring community that fosters the highest standards of academic, social and emotional growth. The efforts of volunteers like you are a vital part of this community.
