Message from Administration
"Paws" for Story Time is happening tomorrow morning, so we are calling all of our 3 to 5 year olds in the community to come visit with us in the library! This is our first annual Pre-K Story time. We look forward to making a memorable experience for these little ones. Want you join us? I hear Tusky is coming!
We celebrated a few great happenings this week. See below for pictures!
Enjoy your Fiesta Week! Don't forget we have a three day weekend coming up.
Jump Rope For Heart
Friday, April 20th kicked-off the Jump Rope for Heart Challenge. The students met members of the “Scare Squad.” Students learned about making healthy choices and how important it is to have a healthy heart. We encourage everyone to sign up online and download the app on any smart phone or tablet. The app is called Jump/Hoops. Donations can be made starting today and the fundraiser will end on May 11th. Cash donations will be accepted, but online donations are recommended. We raised close to $10,000 last year and our goal for this year is $11,000. If the goal is met, Coach Kaufman, as well as Coach Fonger will be pied in the face. We will try and hand out prizes daily during P.E. based on the fundraiser notifications we get on our end through the app. - THE Coaches

2018 THE Teacher Appreciation Week April 30th – May 4th
The Tuscany Heights Elementary PTA is asking all of our students and families to help us show STAR teachers and staff how much we appreciate them during the week of April 30th! Visit the T.H.E. PTA website at www.tuscanyheightspta.org for some fun ways that our students, no matter what grade, can participate in this fun week for our amazing teachers! Backpack flyers will be coming home soon. Also, be sure to check out the faculty “favorites” pages available at http://www.tuscanyheightspta.org/faculty-favorites.html
Warmer weather = Overflowing Lost and Found
Parents, as the weather warms up we find lots of sweaters and jackets around the school with no name on them – they end up in lost and found and it is OVERflowing! Help us out by checking closets and then sending your students on a mission to find what is lost and bring it home! ALL items will be donated to a charity at the end of the semester.
Want to get involved? With the election of our new PTA officers, we are filling PTA board chair positions for 2018-19. If you would like more information or have any questions about any of the volunteer opportunities please don’t hesitate to ask. Kelly Evans, our incoming president or I would be happy to visit with you.
Mandy Howland, PTA President
