We THE Tigers will be inspired to lead, honor, and excel today.
Teachers sharpened the saw this week by participating in our annual turkey bowling competition. Congratulations to all who strutted their stuff at the Tiger Bowl. Library Life Savers shared in the spirit of Thanksgiving by making turkeys for their teachers. We have so much to be thankful for at Tuscany Heights: great student leaders, great teachers, and great Tiger families! Leader in Me Night featured student leaders demonstrating the seven habits for our parents and community. Here two Tiger sisters practice Sharpening the Saw by teaching their little brother yoga. Hot dogs, prepared by our Watchdogs, fed over 300 hungry Tigers. We'd call this night a Win-Win! Kinder, first, and second grade students learned about giving from Ronald McDonald as part of our Leader in Me Spirit Week. We are practicing Random Acts of Kindness, and learning to Seek First to Understand. Our visitors from the Ronald McDonald House helped us understand how important giving is. THE Tigers celebrated Veteran's Day with more than 100 retired and active duty service men and women. Students and veterans shared breakfast, a performance by our Tiger Beat Choir, and a patriotic parade. Thank you, veterans, for your service and for the fine example you set for our young people. Students celebrated their Leader in Me spirit by Beginning with the End in Mind. These third graders are dressed for their future careers. Can you guess what their career goals might be?
What do Elephant and Piggy, Skippyjon Jones, Splat the Cat, Pigeon, and The Tin Man have in common? They were all entries in our Literary Pumpkin Patch. Over 100 literary pumpkins celebrated reading with our Tigers this week, and everyone enjoyed finding their favorite characters in the patch. Do you see any characters you know?
Students sharpened the saw during our first club meetings of the year. Every student selected a club choice and spent the afternoon learning something fun. Students could choose from music, yoga, knitting, puzzles, Legos, soccer, and many more. These fifth graders used computers to program robots they made from Legos. Fun!
Our kinder teddy bears were invited for a Teddy Bear Sleepover in the library this weekend. Kinder students dropped off their bears with directions to use their best library manners during their visit. What could possibly go wrong?!
