Tech Tip of the Week
When in doubt restart! If your child’s iPad or laptop is acting in an unexpected way, restart. If it won’t do things that it normally does with ease, restart. An important component of the restart is quitting all programs. Do this on an iPad by double clicking the home button and swiping each open app up. On a laptop you want to look at the dock (that strip with app shortcuts on it) and make sure the only app with a dot under it is the blue faced Finder guy, he never gets quit. If an app has a blue dot, simply hold down the control key and click the app icon then scroll to the Quit prompt. It is good rule of thumb to quit everything and restart a minimum once a week.
Spirit Wear Order Deliveries
TNCS spirit wear (including P.E. shirts) from the summer online store was given to students on Thursday, August 30. Hoodies, hats, and visors were backordered and are expected to arrive this week.
Athletic Schedules & Winter Sports Sign-Ups
We’ve had a fantastic preseason for all of our teams. After almost a month of practicing and preparation, regular season competition starts this week. GO SABERS! Daily schedules for each team can be found at www.tncsathletics.org. Please create a FAN ACCOUNT for your child’s team so you can receive alerts of schedule changes.
Saber Sports will be holding Winter Sports Sign-Ups in mid-September. Students will be encouraged to sign-up for basketball, wrestling, or rock climbing for the winter season (mid-November – mid-February).

9th Grade Late Night
Ninth Grade Late Night is on Friday, September 14th after school until 11pm. Ninth Grade Late Night is a time for students to celebrate the start of their high school years and to bond with new and familiar classmates. We will begin the event by cheering on our Saber athletes at the home volleyball and soccer games. After supporting our student athletes, we’ll gather for a pizza dinner and then start the festivities. Each ninth grade student will play on a team, competing against other ninth graders in a series of hysterical “Minute to Win It” games. After an awards ceremony, we’ll settle down, enjoy some popcorn, and watch a movie. Please encourage your ninth grade student to participate! The success of the event depends on the participation of the ninth grade class. We look forward to celebrating the start of the year with your student! Click here for more details. Permission is needed by September 14 via email to Mrs. Beene.
Mondays are pizza days for lunch at TNCS, to benefit the athletic department. Slices of cheese and pepperoni pizza from Domino’s are available. Students place their order on sheets posted on campus. Pizza is $1.50/slice. Drinks are also available for $1.00. Both are billed to the student’s account. Cash is not accepted.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help serve pizza on Mondays from 11:45am – 1:15. Click here to sign up to help!
