THE's Weekly eBlast
April 16, 2017
Thank you to all that came out Tuesday night to support our Eat for a Cause at Chipotle. We profited for our school $1, 017.38. It was a great night and we are so appreciative of your support!
We will be hosting our first annual Multicultural Day on April 20th. Some of our student leaders will be sharing information about a country of choice. We hope that you can share in this exciting event to learn about the various cultures that make up our Tuscany Heights Families. We are opening the door to community members as well. The students will showcase true leadership as they teach about different cultures.
Take a look below for the EPI Supply list for the upcoming school year.
We hope that you had a great 3 Day Weekend.
Recently we have had a few clinic situations that required parents to access through the back to get to their child during dismissal, so I would like to remind parents using the back parking lot of a few things to aide in keeping the curbside open and handicapped spaces vacant. Please ensure that you park and use the crosswalk to assist your child across or to pick them up at the back rotunda door. The curbside is reserved for buses and a fire lane in the event there is an emergency situation. We ask that parents not park along the curb to pick up their child. Also, please be sure that you have the proper handicap tag if you are using the handicap parking spaces. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Warmer weather = Overflowing Lost and Found
Parents, as the weather warms up we find lots of sweaters and jackets around the school with no name on them – they end up in lost and found and it is OVERflowing! Help us out by checking closets and then sending your students on a mission to find what is lost and bring it home! ALL items will be donated to the NEISD Clothes Closet at the end of the semester.
5th grade students – 5th grade spirit is popping up all over campus. Don’t forget to show off your 5th grade spirit shirt on WILD Wednesday!
Plug in with PTA and Back the Future!
