Other Notes:

Family community service opportunity: January 20
CHiPA is proud to host a TCH student-led, parent-supported community service event on Monday, January 20, 2020 (MLK Holiday) in the gym from 10 a.m. to Noon. TCH Student Council expressed interest in many areas of need in our community where they would like to give back. Our first effort will be to enhance our support of the Meals on Wheels program. This special community service event is designed for parents and children to make Valentine’s and St. Patrick's Day cards, decorate meal bags, and create art for the most at-risk seniors in our community.  Drop-in between 10 a.m. and Noon, create and craft, and leave when done. Simply fill out this form to let us know you can make it: Sign Up Here
We will have a donation basket on site to help offset the cost of materials. 

 Inclement Weather Information

Sing up with RemindTCH Administration determines school delays and closings with the assistance of local law enforcement officer Tom Flitton, and TCH outdoor services provider, Chris Danbrook. Parents will receive an email by 7:00 a.m. (or earlier if possible) notifying them of the delay or closure. The information will also be posted on the school’s website at 7:00 a.m. Please note that TCH will not automatically follow the closure policies of TCAPS and NMC as it has in the past.

In addition to an email alerting you about school closings and delays, we will be adding notifications via Remind. Simply download the remind app to your mobile device and set up an account. Then, Text @hg6c3f2 to the number 81010. You will receive a welcome text from Remind. If you have any trouble with 81010, you can try texting @hg6c3f2 to (231) 638-5530. The class is titled TCH Parent Community. If you have questions about the Remind app, let us know and we will do our best to help you.  If you signed up last year for these notifications, you do not need to re-register.

"Something I Noticed"

Each week you will see a short example of something kind that one of us observed or experienced. This gives you a peak into the wonderful interactions our faculty and staff have with your children, and each other, everyday!

 “I have observed incredible patience, positive reinforcement and genuine joy by the staff in every classroom I have assisted .  What a perfect environment for a child to thrive.””
