PTO news

Please join us in celebrating the school year coming to a close! It’s this Saturday, June 7 from 1-4 at the school.

We do still need volunteers to make this another successful party and to show incoming families how great our little community is. We need volunteers for face painting, hair coloring, tattoos, and tie dying napkins. We also need sliced fruit! Oranges, watermelon, and grapes (not sliced) are all great at quenching thirst.

Please use the link below or email or if you need help filling a spot. We are more than happy to assist you.

Water will of course be available. Sodas, shirts, bottles, and bags will also be there and available for purchase. The costs are $1, $11-$15, $18, and $20 respectively. We are done fundraising and won’t be pushing sales of anything, and this is just to inform you of what will be there in case you want to make any last minute purchases.

Thank you for letting us serve the school and our teachers this year! It’s been great meeting so many of you!




Thank you for understanding. This will allow us time to close up the program and process bills before the end of the school year. Thanks to Ms. Kendra, Mr. Ryan and Mr. Will for a great year in After School.

Class news

3rd Grade Reminders

EOGs are this Thursday and Friday. There will be no homework on these nights. Please help your child to relax and get to bed early.
We need boxes! Word has it that Uhaul has free ones to give out. We prefer ones small enough to load with books but will take what we can get.
​Our End of Year Party is Tuesday June 10 at 10am. We will have a slideshow in the room, then travel to Rocky Knob for a hike, lunch, classroom Olympics, and play time. We have enough drivers but would love for all families to attend, even if just for a bit. If you would like to hike, bring sturdy shoes! We may get in the creek a bit…
We need help all next week packing and cleaning in the class. Stop by anytime we are in school or send me an email if you have time after school.


A big thanks for all the great days of art making and community building with the talented and spirited students of TRCS. I will never forget a single one of your children, so please encourage hugs when we run into each other!
Have a great summer!

A very special appreciation to the volunteer advisers (Dawn Shumate, Megan Long, Leigh Reid, and Jennefer Spell) that dedicated countless hours to making the project happen.  We would also like to acknowledge the students that helped to really give the book a feeling of community:Danika, Clara, Emma, Simon, Mariyah, Faith Ann, Carmen, Miles, Ivan, Freyja, and Liv.
