A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of the Extended Educational Programs
“God couldn’t be everywhere and so he made Grandparents.” We are so looking forward to our Grandparent’s Day events at TCS, The First Hope, and our Preschool. The Preschool is hosting their Grandparent’s Day at 9:45AM on Thursday, March 10th for all age groups. TCS (K-5 classes) and The First Hope (K-5 inclusion classes and transitions+) are hosting Their Grandparent’s Day events at 1:00PM on Thursday, March 10th in Room 215/225 at TCS. You can also purchase a special TFA Grandparent’s T-shirt through TFA’s school store! We can’t wait to show our Grandparents how much they are loved at these special TEEP events.

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 (
