In order to avoid the Summer Slide, TCS teachers have compiled resources to support students.

  • All students who submit the summer reading work to their Literacy teacher the first week of school will receive certificates and be entered into a drawing for a prize.

Let’s make this a summer to instill and foster a love of learning.
