Week 27 of the 2023-2024 School Year

Hi TCS Families!


We had such a busy week! Lots of information to review here- please see the attachments and notes.


 Monday and Tuesday are our re-accreditation dates. Members of the accreditation team will be on campus on Monday and Tuesday observing students, teachers, and they would like to talk to YOU! Please mark your calendars and plan on coming to school on Monday at 5:30 to speak with the accreditation team. We will do just fine on accreditation- our school rocks! For those of you who do not know this about me, I'm a bit competitive. "Just fine" isn't going to work for me. I want these people to leave on Tuesday in AWE of the AMAZING school they just reviewed. I want jaw dropping! I would love nothing more than to have a majority of our parents show up to this meeting and blow them away with feedback.


If your student came home and told you that they played with matches at school- they were telling the truth! The Earth science class spent some time this week outside working on an experiment. Ask them to tell you about it :) 


As the sun shone on us this week, I was struck by and grateful for how much time our students spend outside. Many students are outside playing during recess, lunch, and PE! I observed the students PLAYING games in the sun, their phones were nowhere to be seen! At one point during recess there were students playing volleyball, soccer, football, baseball, and chess ALL at the same time! It was beautiful. There are ZERO scientific studies that indicate American students get too much sunshine, too much physical activity, and too much practice with social interaction. In a world dominated by screens and "seat time," I am very proud of just how different our school is from other schools. 


Congratulations to the Swamp Rabbits!!! We won TWO soccer games this week! Yeah!!!!! (Team pictures in the attachment) 


Congratulations to the Swamp Rabbits Math Club.  They competed in a Math Meet in Sumter against other SCISA schools. Our math club members who went to the competition are Preston Schreffler, Evan Bergh, Nick Rauch, Aidan Wilson, and David Bustamante! We came home with a 4th place prize and ferver to gear up for next year's competition! (Team picture in the attachment) 


Congratulations to the Women's Studies class for their successful fundraiser for Hopeful Horizons. They raised $300 and stacks of supplies!
