Week of September 12, 2014

TCA has had a busy week and we are looking for a little fun coming soon. Field trips, Serve-A-Thon and additional lunch options are around the corner. The students have had a good week and they have been patient with me. I have reviewed each high school student’s transcript and course selections and have evaluated them to check for state graduation requirements. Some student schedules have been altered to meet these requirements and these changes will start next week. If you have questions about the ensuing changes please contact me for a meeting.

Mark your calendar for Monday, September 22, 2014 for the next State of the School Update. The TCA historical fiscal review will begin at 6:00 pm and the general meeting will begin at 6:30 pm. We hope to see you then.


The following is a message from our lunch bunch:

“Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to adjust the hot lunch options. Starting for the week of September 22nd, we will have two more sandwich choices from Subway. We will have a Meatball sandwich and a Spicy Italian sandwich.
The meatball sandwich will be the meatballs, sauce, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. The Spicy Italian will have pepperoni, salami, cheese, lettuce, tomato and pickles. All sandwich options will still be $3 for a six inch and $5.75 for the footlong.”

Lastly we would like to thank Anna Shearn for the attached Newsletter, highlighting TCA events.

Have a wonderful weekend. Keep this verse in mind:

“Rejoice in the Lord Always; Again I say, Rejoice!”

Phil. 4:4
