What's happening around Trice

Shout Out to 3rd Grade!

We have 33 students who have received invitations to apply for the DUKE University TIPS program. This is an all time high for Trice!!! Admission to this prestigious program is competitive, and these students received their invitations based on their 3rd grade test scores from ACT Aspire test last year. Students must achieve 95% or better in one or more areas of Reading, Math, English, or Science. These students and their teachers deserve a round of applause for their academic accomplishment.

Items requested

Accidents do happen, and we need to replenish our lending closet. We are looking for new and gently used clothing items for any elementary ages. We need shirts, shoes, pants, new socks, and new underwear. We especially need these items for the kindergarten students.


We also need gently used or new books for our Trice or Treat event. Along with candy, the Trice students and staff would also like to give books to every child that attends the Trice or Treat event.

Pull Tabs for the Ronald McDonald House

Trice is joining forces this year with all the school in TASD to collect pull tabs for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Save the pull tabs from your aluminum cans and bring them to school. If you have any questions about the Ronald McDonald House Charity please contact Ms. Monaghan. Our H.E.A.T. team is also recycling aluminum can so once you pull the tabs off, rinse out the cans and bring them to school as well. For questions about the H.E.A.T. team please contact Ms. Newton.

coffee & conversation with the principal

All Trice parents are welcome to join the principal for coffee and conversation from 7:15-7:45 AM on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Please join us for information about what is going on around Trice. Together we make the perfect blend of parents, community members, and educators working together to help all of our students succeed.
