New! Seasonal Sing at 3 p.m.
All families are invited to join us on the soccer field for our annual sing-along. Arrive as early as 2:45 p.m. (Please use Dr. Beers parking lot for overflow parking. Shuttle rides will be provided. Do not park along Herkner Rd.) Nido and YCC parents should come into the school to get their child from their classroom before joining everyone on the soccer field. Dress for the weather! School closes immediately after the sing-along. 

New! Montessori Model United Nations Fundraiser
We are the TCH 6th graders and we are doing Montessori Model United Nations or MMUN. We are earning money to help pay for a trip to New York City to take part in the MMUN conference. We are selling coffee to earn enough money to go. The options are whole bean and ground medium roast. Our supplier is Roaster Jack. We are selling it through a subscription for 9 weeks and are charging $9.00 per bag. We will start delivering in January. Please sign up here by December 10. 

New! Thank you for your donations!
We want to thank our community for your generous donations to Father Fred Foundations. We are thrilled to be able to support families in need in our community. Through your donations, we were able to provide 38 pacifiers, 27 toiletries, 28 toys, 44 sleepers, 48 hats, 9 pairs of mittens, 62 baby items, 50 packs of wipes, and 22 packages of diapers. You have truly made a difference for Father Fred's families, and we are extremely grateful! - Ava, Gwennie, and Sofie

Spirit Wear Swap
Because everyone loves Spirit Fridays and children grow fast, a group of parents have set up a Spirit Wear Swap in the coatroom adjacent to the front desk. Leave an item your child has outgrown and take something that fits! Stop by anytime. (And while you’re here, be sure to check the Lost and Found for items your child could be missing.)
