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,


September has been a busy month for us all! Our students have been completing assessments to give their teachers insight to where they are starting out at the beginning of year. The data gathered will help our staff work with students to write goals for their educational experience this school year! We are excited to see 100% of our students show growth by the end of the year.


Some of our staff members have been busy interviewing to hire new members to our team: two new Special Education Paraprofessionals, a PreK Paraprofessional, as well as a 3rd and 5th Grade Teacher. We are excited to welcome: Mrs. Calvillo and Mrs. Skok, Special Education Paraprofessionals; Mrs. Lindsey Rivers, PreK Paraprofessional (moving over from special education); Mrs. Worsley, 5th Grade Math Teacher; and 3rd grade is pending. Thank you as we work together to find wonderful additions to the Tuscany Team.


We are excited for more busy days, doing what we love, in September!



Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey

Raising Awareness Around Anxiety

Please join the Reagan Cluster on Tuesday, October 1 at 6:30 in the Reagan High School auditorium in viewing an Original documentary that explores anxiety—its causes, effects, and what we can do about it. The film features World Champion Swimmer Michael Phelps and interviews young kids and adults who suffer from anxiety. We welcome the community to join us and talk about this important issue, as well as learn about resources and tools that can help.

This is an effort to bring all schools that feed into Reagan together to understand how we can continue to understand students of all ages. This documentary is for parents with students of all ages.
