A Note from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Education Programs
What a joyous year we have ahead! August has brought many wonderful beginnings to our Extended Educational Programs. We welcomed our youngest members of the TFA family back to school. The Early Learning Center students were warmly greeted by their new teachers, while their parents enjoyed a ‘Boo Hoo Breakfast’ together as they said goodbye to their little ones. The First Hope and The Classical School staff geared up for the year ahead during Orientation week. We dedicated this past week to preparing and planning for our student’s arrival. The First Hope students arrived for the first day of school on Wednesday- it is so wonderful to have our classrooms filled with their young hearts and minds!

Thank you!

Sarah Donovan


Our first day was amazing. I was so glad to see my students again. They were excited to get back into their routines. This is going to be a great, growing year.


Transitions+ 6-12th Grade Class

Welcome new families: Whynot, Syed, Familia, Rivera, Shirley, Villafana, Willingham, Garcia, and Myers. It was great meeting you all again at our new parent breakfast.

Our staff took the time on Tuesday to go to each classroom and prayer for every staff person and student. It was a special time.

Parents don’t forget that Friday is spirit wear day for students. They can wear jeans and a TCS/TFA/TFH t-shirt.
