TCS Jog-A-Thon - Wednesday, February 14th

Hopefully your child is gathering sponsors. The students will be jogging on Wednesday, February 14, in the Gym. All middle school students will jog during their PE period. Since it is Valentine’s Day, students may have free dress if they wear pink, red, or purple (Valentine colors), or they may choose to wear modest and appropriate jogging apparel. Otherwise, school uniforms must be worn.

**We are in need of volunteers to help on that day to be lap counters. Please contact me if you are willing.

Valentine’s Day Exchange - Wednesday, February 14th

Students will be able to exchange Valentine’s Day cards/treats during our extended lunch on Valentine’s Day. Please have enough cards/treats for all students (27). A list of student names was shared with students via Jupiter.
