Tuscany Heights

Celebrating 10 Years of Tiger Traditions

Tuscany Heights Elementary

Tuscany Heights is the 168th Lighthouse School in the Nation as recognized by Stephen Covey. Through student leadership, we grow leaders that encompass a growth mindset and establish lifelong skills that will support our students as they grow into adults. Our mission is a living action statement that we use to guide Team Tuscany, as we do great things for all.


"We, THE Tigers, will be inspired to LEAD, HONOR, and EXCEL today!"

Bailey's Bulletin

Parents,

Our school fundraiser is in full swing! We appreciate your support in the coming week. It helps us fund instructional materials, field trips, author visits, and more that in turn supports our students' growth. Thank you in advance!


We look forward to showing our gratitude to all of the veterans that come out on Monday, Nov. 11th.


On Tuesday, Nov. 12th, we will have a crane arriving on campus at 6:30 am and working in the back area near the bike rodeo space. We are having a chiller (air unit) replaced. This should not impact you, students, and/or staff, but I did want you all to be aware the maintenance crew will be here with a large piece of equipment in case you noticed it.


I wanted to notify you in advance of my expected absences. I will be out of the office and away from my email from Saturday, November 16th - Sunday, Dec. 2nd . My youngest daughter is having surgery Monday, November 18th and we will be out the entire week. We have backed her surgery up to the Thanksgiving Break since her surgery is a four-week recovery. I always attempt to respond to my messages within a 24 hour period of time, so it is important to me that I make you aware of my absence. While I will be away, your concerns are still important to me and I do not want you to have to wait. If there is a concern, please know Mrs. Amber Leon, Assistant Principal, will be your contact for administration during this time. Our students and staff are in great hands with our administration team. Your child’s teacher continues to be the first contact to support the school to home communication. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need assistance.


Thank you for your understanding!


Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey
