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


A Message from Sarah Donovan, The Principal of Extended Educational Programs
What an amazing Homecoming week had at The Extended Educational Programs! A big Thank You to our Parent Association team, led by Candace Herbert, who created the stellar Homecoming Party. The students had a blast playing games, doing arts & crafts, eating pizza, and cheering on our Royal football players and cheerleaders. The Early Learning Center students showed their Royal’s pride and joy in the Homecoming Parade. TCS and The First Hope Inclusion students made us all so proud with their phenomenal Homecoming float. What a week filled with Royal pride!

The First Hope
Kylie and Antonella are good friends in their First Hope classroom. They like to work on computer tasks together sometimes and encourage one another. This is their first year with us and we are so blessed that God has brought them here.

Quarter 1 came to a close last week and our students had fun celebrating Homecoming Week. It is hard to believe we are in Quarter 2 now and we are nearing the end of October. We are working hard on reviewing data for our parent conferences next week. Make sure you have signed up for a time to meet with your teacher, calling our office. This is one of my favorite times a year to sit with each family and talk about the last quarter and to look at what is ahead. I am so proud of how hard the staff (and students) work each and everyday. I get to witness growth and miracles weekly and am so blessed to be a part of what God is doing here at TFH.
