TCHS Cougar Community Newsletter
September 12th, 2023
We hope you had a great time celebrating homecoming last week. Keep reading to see photos from this year's festivities! In this newsletter you'll find stories highlighting the exceptional work happening in our classrooms and throughout the TCHS community. There are plenty of academic, athletic and fine arts events occurring this fall so be sure to check your student's campus calendar as well as the The Colony High School calendar for events happening in your area.
We had a blast celebrating Homecoming with The Colony community. This year's theme was "Hollywood Through the Ages," and staff and students dressed up accordingly. The TCHS feeder pattern participated in various events throughout the week including a parade, pep rally and of course Friday's Homecoming game.
