We will host our Leadership Night this week showcasing a large group of student leaders. Attached you will find the MVL (Most Valuable Leader Flyer/Invite). We are separating the grade levels this year due to the large number of participants we have involved in this night. Thank you for supporting this year’s leaders and we hope to see you there!

Once again, help us welcome Dr. 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 occur 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!
Don’t forget to sign up for REMIND 101!

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.
