A farewell letter from our 2023-24 PTA President, Amanda Durett Cercone

6/20/2024 6:51 am

As we move into the final week of the 2023-2024 School Year, I wanted to reflect on the past year and send my sincere appreciation for allowing me to lead this community. 

 

Becoming the PTA President was never on my wish list, but when the opportunity presented itself, I took the position so I could advocate for and reach out to families who felt like their voices were not being heard. 

 

Being a creative person with zero management experience, I was highly nervous, but I approached every challenge presented to me and did my best to find solutions. Having been at Tuscan in the “before times” (as I like to call the pre-pandemic years), I also had a goal to bring back some of our Tuscan traditions and events that had gotten lost over the years. I learned SO MUCH this year, more than I could have possibly imagined.

End-of-year gifts for Tuscan's specials teachers and staff

6/9/2024 10:58 pm

Your class coordinators will be in touch about optional $10 donations to your teachers

 

But please remember our specials teachers (art, music, PE, library), special education resource teachers, academic interventionists, social workers, building staff (main office, custodial, nurse, etc), crossing guards, and lunch aides. They have broadened minds, added color and song, mended hearts and scrapes, cleaned messes, filled tummies and kept our kiddos safe. 

 

Now it's time to show your appreciation by donating to our End-of-Year gift fund for our Tuscan specials teachers and staff. 

Any donation amount is appreciated (yes, even $5), but PLEASE donate before Thursday, June 13
