TCH moms are invited to our annual Mom’s Holiday Party graciously hosted by Carrine Pomaranski. RSVP by completing this simple form or by calling the front desk at 929-9325 by Dec 9. We look forward to celebrating the holiday season with you!

Snow Day Lunch Policy Change
Lunches listed on the menu on days that become snow days will be substituted for the menu item on the first day back following the snow day. If this doesn't align with your child’s dietary needs or preferences, you have until noon on the snow day to modify your order. Exception: If the snow day is on Friday, pizza will still be served on Monday as usual.

 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!

 “Our wonderful kitchen staff really goes above and beyond to make us the best lunches ever– especially the Korean rice bowl, yum!”
