Christmas Break Is Almost Here

December 11, 2020
By Dr. Troy P. Roddy
Greetings Titan family!
 
A week from today, we will all be enjoying a well deserved Christmas break. During that break, I hope your family stays safe and healthy. This includes taking all necessary COVID precautions.
 
As you enter the break, if you haven’t yet, please take a moment to answer this quick survey to help us with our admissions efforts. This survey is a follow up to our previous one, and provides us with vital information to help the school meet its growth goals.
 
Thursday, December 17: This is a half-day (noon dismissal). We need to do this in order to prepare the school that afternoon for the Christmas Break construction work that begins on Friday, December 18. Please make a note of this on your family calendar.
 
In addition, the TPA is helping us find volunteers to help us on Thursday from 1-3pm. If you are willing and able to help us, please let me know. Please note that volunteers cannot bring children with them. This is an adults only activity.
 
Special Christmas Fun for Students: Also on December 17, the faculty and staff will be hosting a Christmas Movie/Pajama or Casual Christmas theme dress day for all students. We will start the movie, “The Star,” at 9:15 in the gym. Water and Christmas cookies will be served. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
 
Tamale Fundraiser: Tamale orders are due today, December 11. They will be ready for pickup on December 15. Click this link to place your order. For more information, visit our website. Also, some people have experienced trouble with accessing the order form via text. If you have trouble using the text function, please use the link provided.

The goal of the Titan Fund is 100% participation from families, faculty, staff, and Board members. There are three ways you can participate.

  1. Go to this link and make your pledge online. 
  2. Text “Titan Fund” to (281) 595-8024 and make your pledge.

Thank you, and may the holiday season bring you family peace and joy.
 
It’s a great time to be a Titan,
