Events webpage has been updated

Getting Ready for the New School Year
The new school year starts very soon! Here’s the link to our Back to School page to get ready:
Spirit Wear Store is Open!
Get ready to show your school spirit each Friday this school year. Place your order online, now through August 31.
Have Children’s House gear your child has outgrown? Bring it into our Spirit Wear Swap located in the coat room adjacent to the front desk. Leave an item and take something that fits! Stop by anytime.
Working with us can be very rewarding as a parent. All our regular staffed positions are full, but we're still looking for substitutes! These positions are coop positions and earn credit toward your student’s tuition. They are flexible and give you a glimpse into the inner workings of the classrooms as well as getting you involved in the TCH community. Email Kim Gallagher, email@example.com if you want to know more about either of these opportunities!
International Coastal Cleanup Day, Saturday, Sept 17 from 10 a.m. to Noon
Let's work together to clean up a local beach! Bring the whole family for this fun and rewarding Children's House Parent Association (CHiPA) community service event. Stay tuned for the beach location! Add your names to this list to let us know to expect you.
