The Upper School Fall Visual Arts Exhibit is open in the Library throughout school hours Wednesday, December 3 – Monday, December 8.

Reminder from the Parent-Student Handbook: School uniform and school-approved outerwear must be worn on campus at all times. In the case of cold weather, winter coats may be worn outside the school buildings. During extreme cold weather, the school will notify students and parents of Spirit Wear dress. Girls may not wear sweat pants, warm ups, etc. under skirts.
TFA outerwear is available for purchase in the TFA School Store.
Teacher Blessing Christmas Gifts
As we all prepare our hearts and homes for the upcoming Christmas season, the Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) prepares to honor our teachers with our Teacher Blessing. This parent-initiated gift collection has been a true blessing to our teachers as they strive to meet the needs of their own families or something special for themselves at this joyful time of year.
Our goal is to collect at least $25.00 from each student, but we ask that you contribute only what you can after prayerful consideration. If you are able to give more that would be wonderful! This cash gift is collected and divided equally amongst all of our teachers.
