We enjoyed celebrating the last day of school yesterday, and we hope your children did too. A few last housekeeping notes, and a final thank you, for all your support and contributions to The School community this year. It has been a joy to mark 10 years with you.
We wish you and your families very enjoyable summers! Please continue to practice safety as your children are out of school's doors, both in the neighborhood of TSC and all places throughout the city. Remind your children of the important tips our Safety & Security team has shared throughout the year, especially as they spend more time outside in the summer months.
Thank you again, TSC families. We look forward to seeing you back at school in September!
2013-14 Calendar To the left are reminders of important September school dates. All set dates for the 2013-14 academic year are entered into the Family Calendar on The School’s website. As we finalize additional events and dates this summer, we will enter them into the Family Calendar online, and we will have a printed wall calendar for all families this August as well.
Coming Your Way ... Just a reminder that report cards and the second issue of Roar, The School’s magazine, will be coming to families in the mail this week and next. This second issue celebrates ten great years of TSC!
TSC Class of 2013 The grand Rotunda of Low Library on Columbia University's campus was standing-room only this past Monday night, as friends and family came together to send off our Grade 8 graduates. The School thanks Nicholas Dirks, chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley and our Graduation Speaker, for his thoughtful and inspiring words; and thanks all brilliant students who presented, spoke or performed. Thanks too to the tireless Graduation team for putting together a very meaningful evening. We will notify our newest alumni and their families when Graduation photos and video are ready and available.
Congratulations to our graduates! Your spirit and pizzazz will be very missed, and we wish you all the best.
