IMPORTANT EVENTS & DATES FOR NOVEMBER

Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:

Message from Mrs. Sarah Donovan, Director of The Extended Educational Programs

It’s truly challenging to put into words how thankful I am to lead such an incredible group of leaders, teachers, staff, and students. Everyday I see sparks of amazing in the classrooms, in interactions with parents, and among teammates. It’s truly a blessing. When I first came to TFA, I knew that I would grow as a leader, but did not expect how exponentially I would grow as a Christian and parent too. I dedicate my Thanksgiving gratefulness to all of you- for reminding me daily that lifelong Christian leadership takes place in His word and through experiences with those who are true at heart. Blessings for an abundance of love this Thanksgiving season. .

Message From Mrs. Grayson Merritt,  Principal

Upcoming Events

TFA Preschool Gives Back  

Thank you so much for your support during this time of “Giving Back”.  Because of your generosity, we packed 18 shoe boxes to send to Haiti!  The children were so excited to bring in their donations.  Thank you!

Our pregnancy center and food drive were a success as well and I know because of your willingness to bless others several families will be blessed this Thanksgiving season.
