We hope that you enjoyed a three day weekend with your family!
CLOSED CAMPUS- Until 10:45 a.m.
Parents, our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will be testing this week; therefore, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday will be closed campus for assessment IN THE MORNING (until 10:45a.m.). Please plan lunch if you wish on Wednesday of this week or next week if after 10:45 doesn't work for you. Thank you for understanding!
DINNER TONIGHT at BJ’s!
Join us at BJ’s tonight for Eat for a Cause, 5-9pm. They will give 15% back to our school using the flyer. Some of our staff went for lunch today and already noticed some Tuscany Families there! Great! We can’t wait to see how well we do for T.H.E. Thank you in advance for supporting our school.
WEAR YOUR PTA Spirit Shirt Wednesday! Let’s show off our school mission statement.
October 15th, we are expecting a pre-visit from a Covey Leader to take a look at our school environment, talking to staff and students, and visiting classrooms. He will be giving us feedback as we move forward to become a lighthouse school. For us, we care more about the leadership we are building than the status and will continue to take as long as we need to, to ensure student leaders remains our focus. Thank you for all of your help supporting leadership and helping make our school look/feel great!
Safety Reminder: Cell phones are PROHIBITED in school zones! Also, all schools are TOBACCO FREE, so please no smoking.

It’s a school holiday, so treat everyone to a day off and close the kitchen! Flyers are attached and will be going home in backpacks early this week.

THE’s First Wellness Night was a success!
Thanks to our Tiger families for attending and working out together with The Jumping Dragons, Victory Martial Arts, Papillon Pilates, & Pillar Crossfit. Baptist Hospital & HEB provided us with healthy recipes, snacks, and samples. Ms. Staples and Ms. Sensat gave an informative presentation about Bullying.
Congrats to the FIFTH graders for the largest attendance by students and families! They earned the Tuscany Heights School Spirit Stick! One class on each grade level earned extra recess time for their attendance, and everyone that completed the exercise rotation earned a homework pass. We’re working together to have happy and healthy Tigers!
