Parents,


One more week of December instruction and fun!


The Tuscany Choir did a grand job serenading our students across the community. The will also be at the Arneson River Theater this week! See Tuscany Happenings section for details.


Before Winter Break starts, please checkout the Lost & Found. We have so many items! After the break, it will be donated.


Have your RSVPed, yet? We will have our Winter Parties on the 20th! We would love for your students to wear school appropriate pajamas. A great example, Tuscany spirit shirt with pajama bottoms. This day will be a fun-filled party, movie, and celebration day for all grade levels. We look forward to ending the first semester on a positive note in honor of all of the hard work that has gone into making this first half of the year a good one. We would be happy to have you join us for the party times and volunteer to make this a fun time for our students. *Reminder- Non-Tuscany School Aged children are not allowed to visit during the instructional day. This is a district rule and we do comply. Each holiday party is for the student in the specific teacher's classroom. We appreciate your understanding as we make each party a GRAND one for each class. THANK YOU!


We have many opportunities happening and coming up for our families with the family specialist. Checkout the calendar and flyers included as well as on social media.
