SY20 TCES Family Issue #31
May 4, 2020
Today is the first day of Teacher Appreciation Week!
Throughout this time of many unknowns, one thing is certain: TCES has the very finest educators! I know you'll all agree that our teachers are dedicated and strong. I could not be more proud of our TCES teachers and staff.
Join me in taking some time to thank our educators this week. Check out the PTA flyer for some fun ways for students to show their appreciation each day this week or work with your student to come up with some ideas of your own.
A Message to Our Students:

Part of learning is NOT KNOWING! When a child is learning a new concept, he or she will struggle at first. Here is how to help your child when he or she is having a hard time.
Throughout the extended school closure, SMCPS is providing continuous opportunities for learning. This is not our normal way of doing business, so there are many questions. SMCPS will provide ongoing updates for these questions in this format.

"Working, parenting, and teaching are three different jobs that cannot be done at the same time. It's not hard because you are doing it wrong. It's hard because it's too much. Do the best you can." - Dr. Emily W. King, Ph.D, Psychologist
