Thursday, February 27th

On Thursday, February 27, 2014, we will host the second annual Tara Oaks Elementary "Time for Tennessee" Day. Our students and faculty have been working hard to decorate the hallways and plan for this exciting event. We hope you join us to celebrate this hard work and learn more about what makes Tennessee and Collierville so special.

To start the festivities, we invite you to wear your favorite Red, White, and Blue outfit on Thursday. In the afternoon, a parade of dignitaries will twist through the halls of the school and greet cheering student spectators.

From 5:00-5:45PM, we will host our Open House for families and the community. Artwork, student work, and displays will be on show in the hallways of the main building and special exhibits will be in the cafeteria.

At 6:00PM, our school PTA meeting and 5th grade "Time for Tennessee" program will be held in the gym.

Please join us Thursday night as we celebrate our great state of Tennessee and the wonderful town of Collierville!
