A Note from Sarah Donovan, Principal Extended Educational Programs
It is such a gift to visit The First Hope, The Classical School, and The Early Learning Center classrooms. Our amazing staff have already begun building strong relationships with our students and setting the pace for a year of growth. There are smiles, laughter, and learning all around!
On Thursday, September 3rd, I am hosting a ‘Coffee with the Principal’ at 8:15-9:00AM. It is being held in the E2 building in room 225, which is located in The Classical School. I welcome all Extended Educational Program parents to join me in kicking off the school year and spending time getting to know one another. I hope to see you there!

Dannette Kelly

Dannette has been at TFA for 1.5 years and is just beginning her time at TCS. She is the beautiful smiling face you see when you first arrive.
She loves the staff and the amazing amount of flexibility our program offers to families in the education of their children.
Dannette on her favorite memory so far, “ I met a new student. Who was younger. We got into a rousing game of high five and a chat about all the pretty pink things she had on, from her pink shoes, the butterflies on her dress and her pink bows. As she was getting ready to leave she suddenly comes over and grabs me around the neck and gives me a hug pronouncing that I am her new best friend! She was SOOOO cute!”

Dannette says something special about her is she is blessed to be the mom of 3 of the best kids in the world! Oh….and she loves to vacation at Disney World (of course!!)

Breakfast with the Principal – Thursday, September 3
Please join us for a time with Principal Donovan as she shares her heart and vision for TCS.
8:15-9:30 room 215/225


Please take a few moments to verify and update your contact, emergency, and pickup information in RenWeb. This is our primary method of regular communication so it is important that we have
accurate information on each student.


Immunization Records
New students to TFA and all Kindergarten and 7th grade students must have up-to-date immunization and health records on file. Avoid the rush at the beginning of the school year and drop these off anytime between 8:00am-3:00pm to the TCS Office.


Middle & Upper School Tardies and Attendance
As we begin the new year, please remember our teachers only have 2 days with your student each week. Being in class, on time and ready to learn is essential for their academic progress. We greatly appreciate your assistance in this area.
