Summer 2020
Summer is a go, barring unforeseen developments! Please check out our Covid-19 Preparedness and Response Plan here, and as always, contact Kim Gallagher with questions.

COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan
Check out our reopening overview here. Please keep in mind this is a fluid page that is subject to change as  guidelines change. Check back often for the latest updates.

Graduation and Moving Up Ceremonies
It is a long-held tradition of our school to recognize children who are moving up from one plane of development to the next and celebrate the achievements of our graduates. This year, these ceremonies will be held virtually on Zoom and recorded and shared with the community afterward. Invitations have been mailed and Zoom invitations will be emailed next week.

The Children’s House Marathon Team
The marathon seems to be going well!  There are nearly one hundred participants. It's not too late to join the fun. The runners have a lead over the riders of more than 600 miles with less than ten days to go. It is not too late for your family to join. Be sure to log all of your miles, as it's going to be a close race. 

Let's have fun and stay fit!  Steve Maas, steve@traversechildrenshouse.org

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.
