As always, the Google Calendar and TCH Facebook pages are a great resource for calendar dates, articles of interest, and other related posts about school "happenings." 

Other Notes:

New Communication from TCH!
This year, in an effort to respond to feedback we received in our spring parent survey, we have created a new way for you to stay informed about what your child's life at school. Rather than weekly talking points about the general happenings in the classroom, you will receive more regular communication from the guides directly to you about your child. As always, news about the school will be available for you in the weekly Compass and Earth to Table blog.

We hope you find this specific information to be helpful in staying connected at TCH! 

Fall Festival - October 6th 11:00-2:00
Fall Festival is a TCH tradition for families held every year at Timber Ridge. Fun for all ages, this community get together includes arts and crafts activities, putt putt golf, wagon rides, face painting and more. Again this year, there will not be a pre-pay registration. Simply RSVP, bring the family, and donate what you feel is appropriate for your family. Lunch at 12:00 will include a variety of wheat crust pizza and salads. Don’t forget table service for your family so we can be green!  Click here for flyer.
