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.

Please have your children wear Torrence Creek spirit wear or purple and gold.

No Backpack Day

Each day, in the African country of Cameroon, children struggle to make it on the long walk to and from school. There are no buses and many of them have MILES to walk with their books, homework and lunches in hand. Something as common to us as a backpack and new crayons are a luxury that many of the students cannot afford.
To gain perspective of a day in the life of a Cameroon student, on Tuesday, March 17, students of TCE are encouraged to leave their backpacks at home and carry their books and lunches in plastic bags or in hand.
In the past 2 years, we have held a donation drive during the no backpack week to collect items for these students. This year we are making donations even easier for our busy families.
For only
$3.25
a BRAND NEW backpack will be donated
to A Place of Hope in your child’s name.
A Place Of Hope, not only brings school supplies to the children, but also ensures they are enrolled in and attending school.
MAKING IT PERSONAL:
In addition to sending backpacks to those in need, our TCE students will be sharing words of encouragement and praise to the recipients of the backpacks though written letters. These letters will be inserted into EVERY backpack that leaves our school. This is the portion of the giving that will connect our children to theirs. These are not just physical backpacks, but a way to say we CARE.
