All Pro Dads – April 4th

Hello there to all my TCE All Pro Dads!

On Saturday April 4th, we are looking to do a Charlotte Hornets All Pro Dads outing.  The game will be @ 7:00pm at Time Warner Cable Arena. The Hornets play the Philadelphia 76ers that night. I have already spoken with the Charlotte Hornets and the ticket pricing will be $20/ticket. I need to have money gathered by Feb. 28th so I can purchased all the tickets at once. This will be a great chance for me to meet some more TCE Dads that are interested in our All Pro Dads group.

Please if you are interested, email Fred Reyes @ freyes4980@gmail.com to RSVP or find out more details.  This should be a great evening and I look forward to seeing everyone who can make it.

2015 Torrence Creek Elementary and Grand Oak Elementary Unity Run

The 2015 Torrence Creek Elementary and Grand Oak Elementary Unity Run Committee would like to invite you to Art Please: Exceptional Art for Exceptional Children. Our spring Unity Run raises thousands of dollars each year in order to benefit the Exceptional Children’s Departments of both TCE and GOE. This year, we would like to expand our fundraising efforts by hosting two art events: one especially for adults and one especially for children. If you have heard of “Wine and Design,” these events will be very similar, except the proceeds will benefit a wonderful cause. The very talented, Cindy Cooper (you might know her as the famous “school rock painter”) will be leading both art events.
The adult’s only event will take place on Thursday, February 26 from 7 – 9 PM in the Macaulay Clubhouse. 16023 Hallaton Drive, Huntersville. The total cost is $30 and it includes snacks, two drink tickets, and all supplies needed to create your painted canvas. The tentative design will be a lovely coffee mug that can best suit your home office or kitchen.
The children’s (minimum age 7) event will take place on Sunday, March 1 from 4-6 PM in the Macaulay Clubhouse. 16023 Hallaton Drive, Huntersville. The total cost is $30, and it includes pizza, a snack, a bottle of water, and all supplies needed to create your painted canvas. The tentative design will be a sunflower to decorate a children’s room or family space.
Please register by February 16 to ensure a spot. We will cap both events at 30 total participants. All area families are invited – you do not need to be affiliated with Torrence Creek or Grand Oak.

February 6 – 12 (looking for donations for some fury friends)

TCE’s SWAG club will be kicking off their winter session with a blanket and towel drive to be donated to local animal shelters. Shelters typically consist of cold cement floors with very little heat. Some homeless dogs are fortunate to have a nice foster family to live with until they are adopted; however, many are living out the winter months sleeping on cold cement slabs. Please dig through your linen closets and rag bins and see if you can find something nice and soft for our four legged friends to snuggle up on. These furry guys don’t care if the items are ripped or stained or something straight out of the 80’s. Just please make sure they have been washed recently and do not contain quilting (they love to chew and unfortunately that stuffing is oh so tempting to swallow).
Please donate at TCE: CLEAN, OLD
-blankets (not quilted with stuffing), towels and sheets
Thank you,
TCE SWAG Club

Fundraiser – Jump Rope for Heart

Torrence Creek is participating in Jump Rope for Heart throughout the month of February. It is centered around students jump roping, learning how to keep their hearts and bodies healthy, and fundraising for the American Heart Association. We will be finishing the month off with a Jump Day at the end of February. Fundraising information and envelopes for this cause will be going home in Thursday Folders. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the American Heart Association. If you have any questions, contact Coach Wood.
