  • As school begins, it's time to adjust routines.  Parents, please remember the importance of a good night of sleep and a healthy breakfast each day.  It makes a world of difference for our students and teachers!
  • We hope to have nice weather for a while, and as a reminder, students may wear shorts in August, September, and October.  Check out Logo Magic or the Gently Used Standard Dress room at THS if you need to stock up!

  • As parents, one of the greatest privileges and duties we have is to pray for our children and those who influence our children’s lives. Teachers are some of the most impactful influencers in the lives of our children, so as we begin a new school year, pray for our teachers. Here is a wonderful prayer to use.
