Ready for Some Fun??

JDRF Service Learning
We had our kick-off to our JDRF (Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation)Service Learning @ TCE on Monday!  The slogan is "Kids Helping Kids".  We would like to thank Mike, Cathy and Kelsey Leffingwell for coming out to speak to our kiddos as well as Ana Lueiro and Lorenzo Lueiro.  

Each student at TCE has received an envelope with 5 paper sneakers in it.  If you are able to help us by giving a donation,  please fill out a paper shoe that was sent home with the amount of the donation to bring back and hang up in our front hallway!  The donations can range from $1.00-as much as you would like to give.  You can turn in the shoe to the front office or to your child's classroom teacher.  

We are collecting funds from now until Friday, October 30th to help support the foundation and will be having our official walk on Friday, October 30th during our grade level specials times!  You may come and join your child as they do the walk as well!  We ask that your child wear blue that day of the walk to help show support as well!  

4th grade- 9:30-10:20
2nd grade - 10:20-11:10
5th grade - 11:10-12:00
1st grade - 12:30-1:20
Kinder- 1:20-2:10 
3rd grade - 2:10-3:00

 You may donate online or by collecting money in the envelope and then returning it to school!

 Here is the site where you can also make donations! 
Our goal this year is $5,000!  

Family Design Challenge!
We are doing something new this year to add a little fun with our STEM initiative and engineering design!   We are having our first ever:

TCE Fall Family Pumpkin Challenge!  

We would like for you and your family to try to take a pumpkin and design it into something unique!  This could be anything from a creative artistic expression with paint or decorative items to an invention in which you use the pumpkin in a new and innovative way! 

We do ask that the pumpkin is not carved in any way, as we want to avoid a smelly hallways as we display the pumpkins around the school!   

Also, we are not looking for scary or Halloween themed designs, this is more about how creative and innovative you can be!  Please check out a few examples of ideas below! 

You can start bringing in your pumpkin designs on Monday for display and we will announce our winners on Friday, October 30th! 
(We will have one winner from each grade level!)

TCE Parent/Community Tours 
We had the opportunity to have many parents and community members join us last year for our TCE Tours.   They were able to come in and see the types of learning and resources provided each day in the classroom as well as got a feel for what our children are engaged in daily at school. 

We will be having our first round of Parent/Community Tours to Town Center on Tuesday, November 3rd!  

This is something that we started two years ago in order to give our parents/community a chance to come in during the school day in order to see the learning that is happening and to know more about our goals as a campus!  

There will be a morning tour from 8:30-10:00am 

(major focus on Kinder, 1st, 3rd grades and Specials)

There will be an afternoon tour from 1:00-2:30pm 

(major focus on 2nd, 4th, 5th grades and Specials)

If you would be interested in attending a tour, please click on the following link and fill out the Google Form, so we can contact you about visiting!
