We had an excited first week with your children. Thank you for entrusting us with them! As we embark on the 2nd week of school, we have a few events to capture the attention of our families: Leadership Pep Rally/1st PTA Mtg and Grandparents Day Celebrations. We hope you join us this week! More information below.
Starting the 2nd week of school may bring about some changes with transportation, so I hope that you will reach out to the teachers to ensure they know how your child will be getting home. This week looks like we are expecting some rain. If you want your child to travel home a different way in the event of rain, please make sure the teacher knows. We make no assumptions and/or changes to a child’s dismissal UNLESS parents notify us of the change. Please make any changes prior to 2pm to ensure the teacher and the office are aware. Thank you for being diligent with this process to ensure the safety of all students.
Again, we are encouraging all students to show leadership by walking themselves to class and helping others along the way if needed. We will also have staff all along the hall assisting as well. If you have a Kinder student and you want them to give it a try, we do have safety patrol and staff that can provide assistance, just let us know when you drop them off. Should you want to walk your child(ren) to class, you will need to report to the office, check-in, and receive a RAPTOR badge for security purposes.
Sept. 2nd Leadership Pep Rally/PTA Meeting 5:30pm
Join us for a Leadership Pep Rally to help kick off the school year with our students. We have set a goal for 100% of our students to understand and apply leadership this year. We’d love your support in making sure our students know how valuable their talents and skills are to us and the community. We want them to shine, to LEAD! The Reagan and Johnson Cheerleaders will join us for a performance as well as the Tuscany Staff. We hope that you and your family will be there! Pizza, $1 a slice, and water, $1 a bottle, will be sold starting at 5:30. The performance will begin around 6pm and the PTA General Meeting will follow at 6:30pm.
Sept. 5th Grandparents Day at THE 7:45-9:45a.m.
Join us this Friday to celebrate the wonderful grandparents of our students. We hope your family can attend! All grandparents and parents will need a RAPTOR Badge for security purposes, so please pre-register by letting your teacher and/or the office know. We will preprint badges to avoid lines. If your grandparents have never been to Tuscany, we will have to scan their ID before or the day of their arrival. We will be as fast as we can, but SAFETY comes first. Please arrive early not to cause a delay in arrival to the classrooms.
