July 2018 Newsletter

Dear TCS Families,

I hope this letter finds your family off to a wonderful summer! We are just wrapping up our final week of summer camp at TCS with 2 exciting weeks of Soaring Into STEM and Tinkering With Technology. It was great to have our own staff here to host a few TCS students, as well as MANY others from schools in the tri-state area. Days have been filled with engaging hands-on activities that encompass computer science, engineering, art and biomedical research. Additionally, field trip opportunities across our campus (i.e. STAR, UD Police Station, DBI) provided opportunities to see how technology is dynamically utilized at the University of Delaware. Campers have decidedly become more creative and collaborative problem solvers these past two weeks!

We also continue to keep busy with prospective family visits and the preparation of records for our many transitioning students. If you should need assistance or have questions over the next several weeks, please feel free to call TCS or contact me directly by e-mail (lcd@udel.edu), as I will be in 3-4 days per week throughout the summer. Meanwhile, Mrs. Bachman is available Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 3:00pm (302-831-0222) or (jbachman@udel.edu).

I want to take a moment to share a few end of the year remarks, as well as some for the new school year ahead. First, I truly appreciated the positive energy displayed by all who attended our STEAMING INTO SUMMERCLOSING CEREMONIES on June 7th. What a joy it was to have our children host and entertain us with special readings, performances and our 5th annual music fashion show! Every student contributed something special to this performance—and I am so proud of each one of them. This time of celebration and farewell yields many emotions; however, while it is hard to say good-bye to members of our students, we celebrate each child’s accomplishments and thank YOU, our families, for your continuous support this year.

Looking ahead, we eagerly anticipate visits from our newest TCS Alumni, and can’t wait to hear of their new school experiences! Again…CONGRATULATIONS on an amazing year!!! Finally, for those new children and families joining us in September, I assure you that becoming a part of The College School will be a unique and rewarding experience. As one journey ends, it’s exciting to watch a new one begin! Have a GREAT summer~ and I look forward to seeing you soon!

All the best,

Mrs. Dougherty
