Friday Updates- February 7, 2020

Dear TCDS Families,

What an interesting weather week it has been! The children really enjoyed getting outside on the playground for some fresh air and exercise at the beginning of the week! But this rain and wind is really throwing a wrench in our outside time. We are doing what we can to get the wiggles out inside, but I hope this weekend provides everyone the opportunity to get outside and RUN!!!

Acceptance letters and Enrollment Agreements for the 2020-2021 school year were sent out this week! Please read through the information before signing and returning the agreements to the office. Please remember that tuition must be paid in full before enrollment for next year can be finalized (the final payment was due February 1). The first tuition payment for next year will be due April 1.

Extended Day Music is back! Please plan to join Ms. Sue and the Extended Day staff for a fun afternoon of MUSICAL SNOW!!! Mark your calendar for February 20 from 12-3 (snow date will be February 27). Permission slips will come home Monday and Tuesday of next week!

The BARN BASH is coming April 18!! We will have a planning meeting this coming Thursday, February 13 in the evening. More details about this meeting will be sent out next week. Please plan to attend!!

We are also interested in getting donations of fun experiences (sporting events, beach rentals, birthday parties, etc.) that can be placed in our silent auction. All money raised from this auction comes directly back to the school, so donations are always welcomed and appreciated. If you know of a company that would be willing to donate (they get tax breaks AND free advertising in the event program), please come to the office for a donation letter to give out. Any and all help that our families can give for this event will be greatly appreciated and valued!

CALLING ALL GARDENERS!! The Parents’ Club is selling bulbs for your garden! Order forms were sent home late last week, but there are some extras on the table in the lobby. If you don’t have a green thumb, you can still participate by buying bulbs to donate back to TCDS for our gardens. Ask your friends and family too. All proceeds will be used to purchase new playground equipment!

Come join us for our Summer Nature Program during the month of June! Information about the program, along with a registration form, was sent home in folders this week. If you need another form, there are extras in the lobby. Registration for this program will begin March 2, so start deciding which weeks your child will attend!

We have been getting a lot of requests for tax statements, and we are more than happy to prepare these for our families. If you would like a tax statement, please contact Laura ASAP and she will get one to you.

Please remember: TCDS is CLOSED on Monday, February 17 in observance of President’s Day!

**Unfortunately, this wind forcibly swung the main gate open this morning which damaged the top hinge. Therefore, the gate is not closing easily. To close it, you must gently lift the swinging gate as you close it. Please do your best to close this gate and secure the playground. I am working now to get someone out to repair it.**

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! See you next week!

Take Care,

Chrissy
