New! Community Pledge
As a member of The Children’s House community, we must all do our part to keep our children, staff, and families safe and healthy during this pandemic. Last year, our community pledge set expectations and provided guidance that led to a positive school year experience. Please log into Family Access to sign the revised pledge in School Forms Online. You may view the pledge here.

Back to School parent meeting, Sep 9 at 6 p.m.
This annual meeting is required for all TCH parents and guardians to connect as a community. At least one adult from each family must attend. We will start on the soccer field with a reception and program.
