January 19, 2014
It was a great week! Congratulations to all of our spelling bee contestants. We are super proud of all of them. Our top three spellers are: Sweny Maredia, Kailee Meek, and Gina Yu.
Once again, help us welcome Mrs. Bobbi Turnbo to Tuscany Heights Elementary in February. She will be my principal substitute while I am out on maternity leave. I expect that this will take place some time between Feb. 12th-19th. She is excited to be here with us and we are truly appreciative that we get to have her here. She comes with much experience and expertise!

Thinking about doing a little spring cleaning? In early March we will begin collecting books for the annual NEISD Used Book Sale. This is a district wide event that raises money for our school. The more books we donate to the sale, the more money we bring home to Tuscany Heights! So if you have old books that your family no longer needs, please hold on to them for a little longer.
