The College School NEWS

On February 14th, our Special Events Committee helped TCS kick off their 2nd annual Healthy Heart Day. Students had opportunities to visit a variety of stations to learn more about how to live a healthy lifestyle. Some of our volunteers included: the UD Healthy HENS, UD Football, Jazzercise, Team Miller & DelPercio, and UD Nutrition. Topics such as recommended amount of
screen time, healthy food and drink alternatives, and exercise tips all added to an AWESOME learning experience for our children.

On February 21st, TCS didn’t skip a beat while our children jumped rope and shot hoops as active participants in our annual Jump Rope & Hoops for Heart event. KUDOS to all of those who took time to seek sponsorship and collect donations from family and friends.  TCS raised over $1200 for the American Heart Association.  WAY TO GO!!
Our hearts and minds remained healthy and
compassionate throughout the month of

TCS COMMUNITY SERVICE:
REACHING OUT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE….

Sunday Breakfast Mission
On February 8th, Mr. Ray from the Sunday Breakfast Mission came to collect all of the warm clothing and coats donated by our generous families. He also thanked the students for their work making 200 sandwiches that were generously donated on February 1st. Once again, our TCS families have gone above and beyond with generosity….thank you!

On March 1st, students organized Hope Totes that will be delivered to the Sunday Breakfast Mission this week. Special thanks
to our Community Service Committee for organizing these outreach activities to help our surrounding community!
Blue Hens Read Across UD will “kick off” “National Reading Month” at TCS. Special guest readers will visit our
classrooms in the coming week. On March 1st, students had the opportunity to complete extra “AR” tests as part of Read Across America Day. Hopefully, we can all spend a little more time reading and less time in front of our
screens this month!
