Someone will be in the lobby to greet you with the job list! We hope to see you. Thank you!

TCH Elementary Students Have Swings!

Thanks to Upper El students, Lola, Isla and Nora, our campus is now home of a beautiful new swing set. In the fall, the girls pitched the idea complete with plans and drawings. Since then, they have been raising funds to make it a reality. A big thanks to the individuals and the Karen Circle who supported the students with their time and financial resources.

Grandparent's Day - May 26th
On May 26th, we are hosting our 15th annual Grandparent’s and Special Friends of that Generation Day. Attached is the invitation in case you or your child's grandparents still need this information.

Please consider volunteering in some way to help make this a special day.  You can sign up to volunteer by contracting Carrine Pomaranski at cmmpomaranski@gmail.com

  • Treat Making - Each classroom is asked to provide two dozen finger-friendly treats.  Homemade baked goods are preferred, with some being sugarless.  These should be dropped off on Thursday (5/25) at afternoon car-line.
  • Event Volunteers - Friday, May 26th, from 8-11 a.m.  Volunteers will gather in the music room to receive their assigned post.  We will need 2-3 volunteers from each classroom to greet visitors, assist with check-in & name tags, help direct visitors to classrooms and tend to refreshment tables.

Cherry Festival Float
Ty McGregor and Kaija Copenhaver will be representing TCH this summer as our prince and princess in the National Cherry Festival. This also means that the McGregor's and Copenhaver's are in charge of the float making process this year! They are in need of a trailer for the float and LOTS of volunteers…particularly a few moms or dads who have carpentry skills. Children of families who help with the float, get to ride on it during the parades! Please email Kristi McGregor if you want to help in any way. kristiwhaley@yahoo.com
