Friday Updates- October 4, 2019

Good Afternoon, TCDS Families!

We have so much going on next week, so let’s dive right in!

On Monday, our lobby will be transformed for our Scholastic Book Fair! Please try to prepare your children for this massive change, as it tends to throw many off in the mornings. The book fair will be open for purchases during drop-off, pick-up, and Enrichment pick-up. Please enjoy browsing the selections and buying some fun books for your family members. Also, please volunteer 15-20 minutes of your time this coming week to run the register at some point during the week, including a time slot during the Fall Harvest party! Here is the link:

Our Fall Harvest Party and Chili Cook-Off is NEXT FRIDAY, October 11 from 5:00-8:00. This event is right here at TCDS and is a fun way to mingle with families, eat some great food, sample delicious chili, and let your children enjoy some outside time. Tickets are a bargain at $12 for adults and $6 for children- tickets get you dinner, water/drink, and access to the chili cook-off. Bake table items will be for sale for dessert. Feel free to bring a cooler of adult beverages if you’d like, but remember to line up a safe ride home. We hope to see you there!

If you can volunteer a half hour of your time during the party, there are plenty of opportunities for you to do so. Please click on the following links to sign up for a time slot:


CALLING ALL CHEFS- We need the entry forms for the chili cook-off contest by Wednesday, October 9 so I can type up the ingredients and get placements organized. All ingredients are listed, but exact amounts are not. Also, your chili will remain anonymous during the party. Please send in your prize-winning chili recipes today!

Fall Field Trips are coming up! Please note the following dates:

October 15 and 16           3s trip to Farmer Stan’s Agricultural Center

October 23                          4s trip to Beachmont

October 28 and 29           2s trip to Fresh Mckenzie

Permission slips for the 3s classes have come home and the rest will be coming home in a week or so. Please return the permission slip and money to your teacher in a timely manner!

Please note that the fire drill and visit from the fire department date has changed. We will have our next drill on Monday, October 14, followed by a look at the truck and a presentation by the firefighters.

A ring was found on the playground while we were blowing leaves. It has pink/red and white stones and a gold band. If you are missing this ring, please come see us in the office.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Although I am not a huge football fan, I do tend to be obnoxious about my preferred team. So, with that in mind… GO STEELERS! 😉

Take Care,
