I hope you enjoyed the video above. As I walked the campus yesterday, I was reminded of why the start of a new school year is so magical. I watched as old friends reunited, new students & families were welcomed into the TFA community, and teachers found exciting ways to engage with students. It was amazing to watch as everyone embraced the school year theme, Stronger Together, based on I Corinthians 12:12,26. As I think about the year ahead, I am excited to see how that theme is woven into all that we do, including the many special events.

Below I have listed some of the most important highlighted events that take place between now and the end of the 2nd Quarter. I hope that you will mark your calendars and plan to attend as many of these events as you can, I look forward to seeing you there!
