We want to set them up for success!

Progress reports for this final quarter will be coming home today - Thursday, May 14th. You will also see in your Thursday folder an opportunity to order summer bridge materials to support and extend your child’s academic skills over the summer. We hope you will find these helpful.

Finally, on behalf of the staff and our entire administrative team, we want to thank you for a wonderful week of appreciation! We so enjoyed the various special treats and gifts. We are all so thankful to be part of such a caring community. Thanks again for making us all feel very appreciated!

BOARD GAME DRIVE

Swag club is wrapping up the school year with our final 5 charitable contributions to our community and beyond. Currently they are exercising their SERVICE ability by growing sweet potatoes that will be harvested then cooked and delivered to shut ins in the greater Charlotte area.
In addition to service projects, SWAG club, always tries to include a “drive” in their session as well. Drives show students that they do not have to have extra money to make a difference in someone elses life. Often we have extra items in our own homes that can be shared with others. It is the ultimate lesson in sharing – items that we loved and have given us joy, being handed over to a new family to carry on that happiness.
This week SWAG members will be diving into their toy chests to find and DONATE BOARD GAMES that they may have outgrown or games they still love, but would like to give to others so they can experience that same fun.
These games will be donated to families right here in Huntersville that are struggling financially. Board games are great for learning all sorts of things – from how to read, to learning to be a good sport, to relationship building.
SWAG club is asking fellow TCE families to join them in donating BOARD GAMES AND CARD GAMES all week outside the media center each morning until next Thursday, April 30.
Many thanks to TCE for all of your support.
