A Message from Our Superintendent and Principal

Dear TECA Families, 

Happy National Women's History Month! 

Can you believe we are now only ten days away from the end of the third quarter? Our focus will be to provide students with opportunities to reflect and share about their academic growth and social emotional development as we continue with rigorous teaching and learning. Please help your child to set personal learning goals for the remainder of the school year! 

Kudos, congratulations to Ms. Beverly, the AAPAC and all the supporting staff for making our Black History Month/African American Heritage Celebration wildly successful! It was amazing to hear our scholars share all of their learning in such creative and sophisticated ways! Conferences and report cards parent teacher conferences will be on Wednesday, March, 24 through Friday, March 26. We will treat Thursday and Friday as minimum day schedules so that you can schedule conferences for the remainder of the time. Please coordinate with your cooperating teachers to put together a conference schedule to shareable with parents by next week at the latest. It would be great to include students in the conferences by allowing them to share their strengths and areas for growth. Conferences should be a time for families to work with us to develop strategies to help our students strive! Let the administrative team know if you need support with conferencing. 

For more information on this event and upcoming events, please read our March superintendent and principal newsletter in its entirety. 

In partnership,
