Summer Online PE
Each summer, several TNCS students take an online PE class in order to make up credits missed due to illness or injury or free up time in their schedule. The class they usually take is called Fitness Fundamentals 1; it is offered through Carone Fitness. The students take the accelerated version, which is an 8 week course (link to register). Contact Ms. Morris with questions about the class. Please give them Mr. Rothschild’s email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as the school contact, to make sure that the school receives grades and credits. You don’t need to register until a week or so before you want your child to begin the class.
The TNCS Summer Programs brochure is live and registration is open! This year’s program includes a new lineup for the Middle School Afternoon Exploratory, Middle School and Upper School Programming, and Verbal and Math PSAT/SAT prep courses.
