TPCS Family Update

May 3rd to 7th

Information for Families

Dear Families at Home,

We are really excited about a new initiative that we will be doing in May. The School Council applied for a Parents Reaching Out (PRO) Grant and was successful. As part of the grant, the school staff and School Council members will be hosting Family Story Time on Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning at 6:30 pm in the month of May. Tuesday nights will feature stories that are geared to Kindergarten and early Primary aged children and Thursday evenings are aimed at late Primary and Junior aged students. All of our students and their families are welcome at the sessions. Students will have their name put in a draw for every story time that they attend. At the end of May, students will have the opportunity to win cool prize bags funded by our PRO grant for participating. The sessions will take place on Microsoft Teams and your child will be invited to all of the sessions if you sign up. This will allow you to choose the ones you wish to join. Please email Mrs. Nitschke ( by Friday, May 7th at 4 pm if your family would like to be invited to the May Story Time events. We are looking forward to connecting with you and sharing our love of books.

Do not forget to continue working on your submissions for the TPCS School Talent Show. All submissions should be no longer than one minute and be submitted to Mrs. Nitschke via email by Friday, May 14th.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need support. We are here to help!

Take care and BEE well,

Mrs. Nitschke, Mme. Aikens and the TPCS School Team
