Summer Program Parent Survey
We are in the planning stages of the TNCS Summer Program and would like to hear from you to make our program even better. We are asking you to take a few minutes and answer this survey by December 10. We hope to unveil the Saber Summer Spectacular by the end of January. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Margie Gray at 804.266.2494 x2329 or via email.
After School Study Hall
On Wednesday, December 11th there will be no After School Study Hall for both Middle School and Upper School Students. If your child is not participating in Athletics, please plan to pick them up at 3:30pm.
The last day of ASSH for ALL students will be on Thursday, December 12th. From December 13th – 18th , there will be no ASSH. Middle School parents of 5th-7th graders, please plan to pick up your child at 3:30pm for dismissal.
Wreaths Across America Service Trip
On Saturday, December 14th, student volunteers will visit the National Cemetery in Arlington to help place wreaths on the graves of fallen soldiers. This all-volunteer program is sponsored by Wreaths Across America with the goal of honoring those who have served and sacrificed for our country. Because we only have so many seats on the bus, space is limited. Sign up soon!!! Parent permission is required and may be sent via email to Mr. Roy. Click here for more information for your planning.
Thursday, December 19 will be our Holiday Celebration! We will eat breakfast together as a community in keeping with longstanding TNCS tradition. We’ll recognize our winners of the Tacky Sweater Contest (winners get prizes!). We will then meet in our houses to have a White Elephant Gift Exchange. Please bring a wrapped gift, $5 or below. Students will then attend their academic classes. We can’t wait!!
Tech Tip of the Week
Exam time is quickly approaching. Students should bring their laptop chargers for exams that require computers. The school has a few loaner cords, but it’s best to be prepared with your own cord. Quitting all opened programs and restarting prior to each exam is another way to ensure your laptop is in tip-top working order.
Personal Training and Workout Schedule During Exam Week
Students may venture down to the gym for the “Workout of the Day” with Coach Elkins prior to or after your exam on Friday, December 13 through Wednesday, December 18. Workouts are open to all 8th graders, Upper School students and Faculty.

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.
