Friday Updates- September 20

Happy Fall, Y’all!

Happy Friday, TCDS Families! I can’t believe it’s already fall, but I am SO EXCITED to start seeing the beautiful fall weather that Maryland has to offer! Our students were FINALLY able to spend some quality time outside this week once the playground dried out a bit. We started Enrichment and Chapel this week as well, and it feels lovely to finally be on regular schedule. Thank you to all of our teachers and families for working so hard to help our Angels get used to the school routine… your consistency and support make a world of difference in helping your child feel successful in school!

TONIGHT is our annual Ice Cream Social hosted by the Parent’s Club! The event begins at 6:30 on the playground, and we are ready for a fun time. We have a lot of current students, alumni, and older siblings coming to this event, so I wanted to remind everyone to ensure their children follow the playground rules. I have created an additional list of “Big Kid Rules” that will be posted tonight (to encourage our older guests to be good role models for our young Angels), so I ask that you please go over these rules with any older siblings you may bring along. Please remember all are welcome! We really look forward to a fun evening on the playground and we thank you greatly for your help in keeping everyone safe!

This Wednesday was our first Chapel service and it was a great success! A reminder to parents and families that you are invited to join us in the Chapel at 11:40 each week; however, please remember that children will return to their classrooms in order to be dismissed. I am going to ask any parents and/or caregivers coming for pick-up when the students are returning from chapel to come down the driveway and wait up by the gate until Ms. Nicole’s class completely enters the building. We want to ensure that all of our students return to their classrooms for a safe dismissal. Thank you!

Ms. Laura has put in all Spirit Wear orders. Although we do not have an exact delivery date, please expect to receive your items in about 2 weeks. Any questions, please ask Laura in the office!

Soccer Shots begins this Tuesday, September 25. The class for our 2-3 year old students is from 12:30-1:00 and the class for our 3-5 year old students is from 1:00-1:30. You can either pick your child up at 12 and have a picnic lunch (at the tables outside of the playground) until soccer starts OR you can sign your child up for lunch bunch for $8 an hour. Please remember all children in extended day need to be potty-trained. I met the coaches this week and they seem very nice. They wanted me to extend a special offer to any families on the fence about signing up: a one-week guest pass can be given to families on a first-come, first-served basis until the class fills completely. If you would like to try Soccer Shots for the first week for free, please let me know and I can pass on the information to the coaches. We MUST know by Monday afternoon if you have not enrolled and would like to try it for the first week, so please let me know ASAP!

LAST CALL for Scholastic book orders!! All paper orders were due today… if you would like to make a last minute order, please do so online using our school’s code: MHKGK. All online orders need to be in by Monday morning at 9am.

I know I will be seeing many of you this evening! If not, I hope you have a fabulous weekend. Let those Angels get lots of rest… they have been working hard here and we are so proud of them!


Take Care,
