Words from Mr. Simmons...


We had a great week of school before Spring Break.  Please note that Spring Break is March 25th-29th.  School will resume on Monday, April 1st.


Our 3rd graders completed their IREAD-3 testing this week and they all worked extremely hard.  We were very proud of their effort.  As a reward, they were able to wear pajamas on Thursday and had many mystery readers stop by to help celebrate the completion of their tests. 


You will see below, but if you have an incoming Kindergarten student, please make sure that you contact the office.  Our Kindergarten registration will be on April 10th for all TSC schools. We look forward to welcoming our newest Bulldogs for the 2019-2020 school year.


Have a great weekend and a wonderful Spring Break.  We hope that your student comes back relaxed and ready to finish the last 7 weeks of school.


- Mr. Simmons, Principal
