Fall Fun at TCE

Hi TCE Parents,  We have had an amazing fall semester so far!  It is hard to believe we are already close to our Thanksgiving break!  Please see the following events and updates so you can be aware of all of the happenings at TCE!  

Veteran's Day Ceremony
We will once again be honoring our veterans this year in a morning ceremony on Friday, November 11th at 9:00am.  If you have a family member or family friend who has served in the military and would like to be recognized during our ceremony, please see the following invite as well as please email Brett Shelby, our Assistant Principal at bshelby@coppellisd.com so we will know who will be attending.  Thank you!

 Program - Art for the Sky 
and Blue Jean Drive
We will be having a special program coming to our campus this December that focuses on art, the world and each individual's role in helping our environment, and the importance of having good character within their lives.  In preparation for the program in December we are doing a blue jean drive collection in order to help with our school art design that we will be creating.  Please bring any kids or adult size jeans that you might be able to donate to the front office of TCE.  They can be gently used or have holes in them as well.  After we use them for the school wide art display we will be donating them toward a non-profit organization to be given to others or recycled as other products.  If you would like to see more info on the upcoming program, view the following link.

TCE Family Traditions Cookbook
We wanted to have the opportunity to create a TCE Family Traditions cookbook this year, since our theme is all about family and celebrating the diversity within our community.  We would love to have you share one of your favorite family recipes to go into our cookbook this year.  If you are interested in participating, please send in your recipe to Casey Wagner, cwagner@coppellisd.com or you may send in a typed hard copy paper to give to the front office.

Shout Out to Parent/Community Volunteers at TCE!
I wanted to find a way for our educators and parents to celebrate all of our parent and community members who help out with our classrooms, in the office, for events, etc. this year!  Please help me in giving shout outs to others throughout the year for all they do to help our campus!  I will be publishing the shout outs I receive each month and then will continue highlighting them throughout the entire year!
