Friday Updates- February 14, 2020

Hello All!
Happy Friday and Happy Valentine’s Day! It has been an interesting week here at TCDS. Tuesday presented us with some maintenance issues that were new to me but easily handled. Our propane tank is now full and I now understand what happens when it is empty! Illnesses made it so Ms. Kira had to come to the office on Thursday. But luckily, everyone is well again and we are back to normal here on Friday!

Enrollment Agreements for next year have been sent home. Please sign and return them as soon as possible to secure your child’s placement for next year. The first tuition payment for the 2020-2021 school year will be due April 1.

Extended Day Music is Thursday, February 20. Join Ms. Sue and the Extended Day Staff for Musical Snow from 12-3pm. Permission slips went home this week. Get them back ASAP to secure your spot in this fun afternoon activity!

Grandparents’/Grandfriends’ Day is coming up between March 3 and 6. This is a special opportunity for visitors to come see your child in the school setting. Invitations will come home early next week with the specific date for your child. Please return these slips to your teacher ASAP so we can anticipate how many visitors we will have. In order to keep our classrooms safe, we are asking that visitors are limited to 4 (or less) per family and that arrangements are made to keep younger siblings at home. The teachers work hard to make this day special, but we all like to keep the schedule as consistent as possible for the benefit of our students.

Dutch Mill Bulb order forms are due back to the office, with payment, on Friday, February 28. This is a fundraiser for the Parents’ Club and all money earned will come directly back to the school. Extra order forms are on the table in the lobby, so pick some up and sell some bulbs! Thank you!

Trinity Barn Bash is on Saturday, April 18 from 6-10 pm at Grimmel Farms! Tickets will be $60 a piece, which gets you a delicious buffet dinner, access to our fabulous Silent Auction, open bar (beer and wine), raffles, games, dancing, and so much more! Tickets will be on sale SOON! We hope that you can join us!

We will begin accepting applications from Trinity families for our Summer Nature Program on Monday, February 24. Applications were sent home last week, but there are extra copies on the table in the lobby. Please bring the completed application with a 20% deposit to hold your spot(s). Also, please be sure to mark your interest in Extended Day on the application so we can see if we have enough interest for the second two weeks of June.

Shrove Tuesday is February 25, 2020. The church puts on a delicious pancake supper in celebration. Please join us upstairs from 5-7pm for FREE pancakes, sausage, bacon, juice and fun! Mardis Gras costumes are encouraged!! I hope to see you there!

Every year, TCDS celebrates reading during the months of March and April with our Read-to-Me program. Information will be coming home about this fun program, along with a personalized bookmark designed by your child, at the end of the month. Please keep an eye out for this information and feel free to reach out to us in the office should you have any questions.

We had a late order for Scholastic books. If you would like to order any books from the catalogs sent home, please order online by Monday!

Please remember, we are CLOSED this Monday, February 17 for President’s Day!

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. See you on Tuesday!

Take Care,
Chrissy
