There were opportunities to make presents for friends and family, delicious and healthy snacks, festive entertainment, and some special visitors at yesterday's Owliday Workshop. Thank you to the Parent Teacher Association for once again providing such a wonderful and creative community event.
| || | Vacation Enrichment – Like Summer Camp in the Winter!
Although we know many families may be heading off somewhere during winter break, Owl's Nest and Enrichment Coordinator Kristen Gunther has planned a series of events and activities during school vacation to accommodate those who will remain in the area and are looking for some fun things to do. First up: the programs on Monday, December 23 – holiday crafts with Guilford Art Center, baking with our own Fran Douglas, and soccer programs with Victory Soccer.

Join us tomorrow for the Holiday Program as students from PreSchool through Grade 8 share music and other activities to celebrate the season. As has become tradition, TCS faculty also have a special surprise in store – stay tuned!
