168th Lighthouse School in the Nation, Building Leaders

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


We are incredibly thankful to all of our families, especially their children! Your children inspire us daily. Thank you for sharing them with us!

Also, thank you for the incredible showing for our Run for the Heights Boosterthon Fun Run! We have pictures below. We have raised almost $23,000 dollars for our school. Boosterthon is leaving our link open through the holidays. We want to hit our $25,000 school goal! Let's do it!

The students did reach the 50 state goal, and I will be slimed along with Mrs. Leon, Assistant Principal. We will send more information with a date at a later time.

We are planning a festive month in December for our staff to show our appreciation and gratitude toward them. Each day, there will be a new theme for their dress. Checkout the calendar below if you would like to have your children join in the fun!

Enjoy your family this week!

Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey

Calling all 5th grade parents and families!! We need YOU to volunteer for our 5th Grade Activities Committee! If you would like to help please email Beth DeStefano at Beth.destefano@gmail.com or Angie Songster at thesongster5@gmail.com for more information.


You can still go online and order your THE Spirit Gear, donate to Greenbacks and join PTA. Go to www.TuscanyHeightsPTA.org and click on the WELCOME BACK AND SPIRIT STORE section! Some quantities are limited, but we still have plenty of spirit shirts, shorts and ladies shirts so place your order today.

Lost and Found!

Be Proactive for the 2018-19 school year! Please label your child's belongings (lunch boxes, water bottles, sweaters and backpacks). That way if they happen to end up in the LOST and FOUND, we can return them to their owner.

Calling all Student Volunteers!

Does your student volunteer at Tuscany Heights through patrols, broadcasting, library lifesavers or any other leadership position? Does your student do community service through scouts or your church? Does your student volunteer at any organizations such as a food bank or animal shelter? If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, we want to know so we can acknowledge your child! If you already have an account at the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) website then don't forget to log your child's hours. If you are new to logging hours, please create a PVSA account for your Tiger so you can start logging. Full instructions can be found on the Tuscany Heights PTA website: http://www.tuscanyheightspta.org/presidential-volunteer-service-award.html Check the weekly eBlasts for information on community service activities offered at Tuscany Heights during the school year. Please contact Kelly Cardenas at communityservice@tuscanyheightspta.org with any questions.
