A Space to Grow Food for the Community
By Jamie Schaub
Right now we have over 1,500 plants started in the greenhouse that will grow to provide produce to local food pantries. Since 2017 I have spent my summers helping manage Poesis Farm more...
It is with great hope and excitement that we look forward to our summer program starting June 15. We are following the guidance of public health and government officials with regard to our COVID-19 response. We will keep you updated if there are changes to the summer 2020 schedule and you will not be charged for any weeks that our summer program does not operate because of COVID-19.
Annual Gala Twilight in the Tropics
Twilight in the Tropics will be postponed until April 2021. Stay tuned for information about our online silent auction.
Because we usually sell many raffle tickets the night of the gala, we need your help to sell them now - please ask parents, grandparents, neighbors, and colleagues! Right now, the odds of winning are VERY good! The raffle will still be drawn on April 24 for a 50/50 grand prize (up to $25,000), a second prize of $1,500, and an Apple Watch as the third prize. Tickets are $100 or 3 for $250. If you need more tickets, send an email to Renee. Raffle license #R55811. Mail ticket stubs and payment to: The Children’s House, 5363 N. Long Lake Rd., Traverse City, MI
Parent Business Directory
Did you know there is a directory of TCH family-owned businesses in the Parent Portal? If you own a business and are not listed, please let us know by completing this Google form. The harsh economic impact of COVID-19 is just starting to be realized. Please support TCH family-owned businesses.
TCH Facebook Community
In an effort to connect our school community even more, a private Facebook group, The Children’s House Community has been created. Please join to share ideas and swap items. The Children's House is a certified Green School. Having a way to give extra life to items your children outgrow helps support this initiative. You may post items that you need, want to sell, trade, or give-away. Please invite other TCH parents.
