TCH Robotics Club for Elementary Students – Gauging student interest for Fall Semester 2021
Love ROBOTS? Have a passion for MAKING? Ready to dip your toe in the world of CODING? This weekly club for TCH students ages 8 to 11 years old will focus on building and coding unique robots in an after-school setting that is non-competitive, hands-on, and always fun. TCH parent, Jennifer Lacy Smith, has volunteered to coach a Robotics Club for the younger students stemming from her desire to give back to our educational community to share that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is accessible for all. If interested, please complete this Google form. If there is sufficient interest, we will develop the program over the summer and send out formal details in August for official sign up. If you have questions, you can contact Jennifer Lacy Smith directly at nathanandjenn@mac.com.

Lisa Schulte ArtPaintings in our Lobby
On March 2, 2020, Lisa Schulte (TCH alumni parent) hung her stunningly beautiful, large scale paintings for our school community to enjoy. Little did we know, the works would be seen by very few people over the next year. We’ve created a new webpage to feature and sell her artwork … take a look!

Family Fun Challenges
 Let’s take a bike ride! Be sure to share photos of your family making memories on bicycles on our TCH Community Facebook page.

Masks at TCH
The mandate requiring children 2 and up wear masks ends as of 12AM, Monday May 24th. We will be returning to our original masking policy with this age group, which does not require them to wear masks, but encourages it if they are able. Masks will be required for children 3 and up while indoors. Once again, masks are no longer required outdoors for anyone.

TCH COVID-19 webpage with link to the TCH protocol, was updated May 21, 2021 to change the masking requirement back to 3 and up.
