Keeping our TCS Lions Healthy

As we are in the midst of cold and flu season, we would like to share these important reminders from our Parent Handbook: For your child's sake, as well as the health and safety of the other students, please use good judgment by keeping your child home if they are ill or show symptoms of illness. Students who report to school with a fever above 99.5 degrees will be sent home. Students must be fever free for at least 24 hours...

Combining Coding and Geometry 

Ms. Abbott's fourth grade class has been exploring coding in their computer classes. The students are learning how to create objects on their computer screens and move them by typing in a code and applying the computer and geometry skills they have been acquiring this year. As they move further along in their coding studies, they will incorporate skills from various subjects such as biology, chemistry, and algebra. Not only are they learning, but they are having a lot of fun coding!
