From the Principal’s Desk:
Dear TCS Families:
Thank you to you and our teachers for making family/teacher conferences such an informative and important opportunity to discuss your child's progress at TCS. Teachers have worked hard to make sure you know how your child is learning, growing and being supported at this point in the school year. Family participation in a teacher conference shows the commitment you and our school have made together working as a team to support your child's development and achievement. Families who had conferences postponed due to the storm will meet with teachers on the early release day rescheduled for Wednesday, March 21st.
Enjoy the weekend.
