HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
“Here’s to the bright New Year, and a warm farewell to the old; here’s to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold.”
-Edith Pierce

Dear Parents,
As we enter 2013, we want to thank you for entrusting us with the educational and social development of your child.  Our teachers and staff remain committed to give our students the quality attention and instruction that they SO deserve.  We wish your family happy, healthy, and prosperous days in the New Year ahead!!
In Kindness,
The “TCS” Staff

Our 19th annual Talent Show, “LET IT SNOW TALENT” attained RAVE reviews!  TCS students, Jillian, Max, and Dominick set the tone and charmed the crowd as this year’s emcees.  Our change of venue to Mitchell Hall’s Little Theatre was a beautiful setting to watch our performers come alive on stage!  Congratulations to every child for exhibiting confidence, talent, and most importantly the spirit of support for one another.  I am SO proud of the cohesive efforts our students put forth to make this year’s show another success!!  Thank you TCS families for being such a supportive audience!!

What an incredible achievement to hold our first annual holiday fundraiser for The College School!  Thanks to the dominant leadership from Donna—–Kyle’s Mom and Sally-­‐-­‐Ryan’s Mom, our fabulous (tireless) Fundraising Committee raised over $3,000 for TCS!!  The incredible outpouring of love and commitment from our parents was TRULY amazing to watch, as 18 beautiful gift baskets and 10 silent auction items came to fruition in less than 2 weeks!!  TCS is truly grateful to all of our families who made contributions to this amazing event!!  We will inform you of our purchases towards new playground and athletic equipment in the coming month.

Our Scholastic Book Fair in late November was another successful fundraising event!  Because of YOU we were able to earn cash to purchase new books and literature for our Literacy Link and classroom libraries.  A BIG “Thank You” to all of our parents who helped with set‐up, break‐down, publicity, and sales throughout this busy week.  Your assistance was crucial to the success of this event!!

Thank you to Sue (Lizzie’s Mom) who continues to keep our Hot Lunch desserts flowing in every Tuesday!  And, kudos to all parents who have volunteered time to bake and/or purchase items for our children. They TRULY look forward to these Tuesday treats!! “Shout Out” to Pasquale & Darla (Filamena’s Dad & Mom), owners of Trattoria de Napoli who make sure our pizza is delivered “piping hot” every Tuesday!!
