A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of the Extended Educational Programs
The first inaugural TCS and The First Hope Father Daughter Dance was a huge success! It was an event filled with sweet treats, limo rides, fun pictures, endless dancing, and unforgettable memories! I want to extend a big thank you of appreciation to Candace Herbert, Lyn Burch, Christy Rivera, Lisa Lampkin, and Maria Cooper for making the event possible. What a beautiful start to a new tradition!

Sarah Donovan

Note From Mrs. Grayson Merritt (Director/Assistant Principal)
So many exciting events coming up to chat about:

Grandparents’ Day
Please invite your child’s special grandparent or grandfriend to join us in their class from 9:45am-10:45am. Your child and their special “grand” will share a special snack, and story or craft. If you child’s grandparent doesn’t live nearby please invite a special grandfriend maybe from church or your neighborhood.

Teacher Appreciation Week
During the week of March 14th, we will be celebrating our fabulous teachers! This is where we need your help. We are looking for a momma (or a couple of mommas) to help make this week special for our staff. Some ideas could be to coordinate a bagel coffee or maybe a potluck soup and salad lunch. You could simply ask for food donations or do a collection and then purchase goodies for staff eith donation.

We will have a theme for each like bring in your teacher’s favorite snack day, etc. but would like to do something a little extra for the teachers. If you are interested in helping to “shower our teachers in love”, please email Grayson (

Please welcome our new friends to our school family!
