A Note from Sarah Donovan, Principal Extended Educational Programs
The school year is off to a strong start! We welcomed The Classical School students back on Tuesday. The TCS SGA students and Rowdy cheered on the students as they arrived. The TCS Kindergarten parents joined us for a ‘Boo Hoo’ breakfast after they said goodbye to their little ones. The First Hope students have been busy getting back into the swing of things as they began their second week of school. The Early Learning Center preschool is growing and we are welcoming new families each week!

On Thursday, September 3rd, I am hosting a ‘Breakfast with the Principal’ at 8:15-9:00AM. It is being held in the E2 building in room 225, which is located in The Classical School. I welcome all Extended Educational Program parents to join me in kicking off the school year and spending time getting to know one another. I hope to see you there!

The students enjoyed the day with their TCS peers and enjoyed connecting with them again as well as making new friends.
Our Transitions+ students were able to get to visit with Max our therapy dog on Tuesday. They always look forward to seeing her come visit their class.
