Summer Book Exchange

TCE's Summer Book Exchange begins Wednesday! Students who would like to participate should bring in no more than 10 gently used books from home. In return, students will be able to choose from books that other students have contributed. Books may be sent to school beginning on Monday through the end of the school year.

Library Books

We have officially finished checking out books from our library for this school year. Please remind your child to return any books they may still have checked out.

TCE Gardens

TCE's new garden boxes have been assembled and are ready for planting! Our class will be planting on Monday afternoon. Please make sure your child dresses for the occasion.

Popsicles for Peyton

Students in Mrs. King's second grade class will be selling popsicles on Thursday, May 19th during recess to raise money for Peyton Manning's Children's Hospital. The cost for a popsicle is $1.00. Permission slips will be sent home with your child on Monday.

Geist 5K

Race day is almost here! Bibs and shirts will go home with students on May 18th. On race day we will meet at 6:30 a.m. in front of the Pizza Hut (corner of 116th & Olio) near the starting line for a group photo. It gets very crowded and busy and parking can be crazy, so allow lots of time to get to the starting line.

Let’s show our school spirit by wearing our Cardinal Runners shirt on race day! This will also allow us to very easy find our TCE runners and walkers. Additional race information can be found at
