Tuscany Heights registered for the “Sweets and Treats” campaign on the1st National Animal Therapy Day, May 18, 2015.  Our school has a visiting therapy team, Mrs. Holeman and Prince, a 4 year old Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees Mix.  Students baked homemade pet treats, which were available for a donation to our “dog donation” jar! The group raised $100 that will be sent to “Pet Partners”, the national organization that trains and registers therapy animal teams.

Third grade entrepreneurs sold decorated pencils to students in second, fourth, and fifth grades in Tuscany's annual Pencil Mania event.  Third graders recorded their expenses, caluculated their profit or loss, and practiced advertising as they enjoyed having their own business for a day.

A little rain didn't stop these kinder kids from enjoying a day at the San Antonio Zoo.  After learning about animal characteristics and habitats in science and researching them in the library, kinder students explored the zoo exhibits with new interest.  
kinder research
Kinder students, with the help of some fifth grade leaders, are learning how to conduct research in our library this spring.  Students use books, ipads, and PebbleGo to learn about animals and how to record the information they gather in their research notebooks.  Thanks, fifth grade buddies, for sharing your skills with our youngest learners.

Fifth grade leaders were invited to represent Tuscany Heights at a World Cafe which included elementary, middle, and high school Reagan cluster students.  These leaders discussed what they liked about their learning environments in NEISD in an effort to bring vertical alignment to our schools.

Congratulations to Mrs. Morris's fourth grade class for winning the annual Battle of the Books.  This student team will represent Tuscany Heights at the district battle later this month.  If you haven't taken time to read this year's battle books, it's not too late to enjoy them. 
Fourth Grade Frame
Fourth grade students have been learning about economics.  To culminate their study, they created picture frames to sell to their peers.  We were impressed with their creativity and salesmanship. What a fun way to learn about profit and loss, supply and demand, and all things financial. 
Poem in My Pocket
Students celebrated the end of Poetry Month with Poem in My Pocket Day.  Tigers selected a favorite poem to carry with them throughout the day, and took time to read their poems to friends and classmates.

Fifth grade girls participated in a Chickadees Book Club in the library.  Students read and discussed Esperanza Rising.  To culminate their study, the girls created yarn dolls.
special olympics
Tigers in Ms. Johnson's class represented Tuscany Heights in NEISD's Special Olympics.  Student participants were wished good luck by their peers who brought signs and cheered as our athletes loaded the buses. They competed well, and brought home several ribbons.  We are proud of your hard work, olympians!
