Tech Tip of the Week
Happy New Year!!! Start the school year off on the right foot – when was the last time you quit all open programs and completely shut down your laptop or iPad? We all need to unplug sometimes; this includes your device!
Fitness Bucket of Fun
In an effort to help students develop the desire for an active lifestyle outside of PE class, Shannon Elkins, Wellness Coach, has developed the Fitness Bucket of Fun to encourage family fitness and fun. Starting this week, a 5th or 6th grade student will be randomly selected each week to take the bucket home on Friday and return it the following Thursday. Click here to learn more!
The TNCS Upper School will go to Massanutten Ski Resort for our annual Ski Day on Friday, January 31. More information can be found here. This trip is optional; however, if your child does not attend the trip, they should stay home that day. There will be no alternative activities on campus. The permission form must be returned to the school on or before Wednesday, January 22nd. Alternately, the form can be filled out electronically and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
