TES Summer Reading Challenge

The importance of reading during the summer cannot be overstated. The ‘summer slide’ is the tendency for students to lose some of the reading achievement gains they made during the previous school year. Reading just 4 to 6 books over the summer can prevent a decline in reading achievement. Our Tuckahoe Library school goal is for students to read 20 minutes every day. Students should read what they want! When children select reading materials themselves and read for enjoyment, they receive the most gains in reading achievement, including better comprehension, writing style, vocabulary, spelling, and grammatical development. Children tend to read more when adults in their lives encourage them to read, and also when they see those adults reading themselves. Here are the flyers for more information on the summer reading challenge and how your student can receive a prize and recognition from the library for completing the challenge.

Class Placement Input

Each year all teachers and members of the administrative team provide detailed feedback about each student as a part of the class placement process for the coming school year. Whether or not you choose to provide parental input, classroom communities and individual student needs are carefully considered. However, if you believe that there are unique circumstances regarding your child that may be overlooked, you are welcome to provide your input. Parent input is accepted by accessing this digital form.. The form will be open for parent access on Monday, April 12 and will remain open until 4PM on April 23. In order to ensure that the class placement process is completed in a timely manner, no parent input will be accepted after that date. Thank you in advance for observing the timeline.

Kindergarten Registration

TES Families,

Kindergarten registration begins online on Monday, April 12, and we are excited to welcome the class of 2034 to TES! To begin the process, families must first access the HCPS KG Registration site and complete the online portion of registration.

After completing your online registration, our school registrar, Maria Livaniou,  will contact you via email to set up an in person appointment to complete your registration. Appointments will be made for one of the following Wednesdays: April 21, April 28 or May 5.

We continue to follow HCPS safety protocol; therefore, only one adult may attend the scheduled appointment. Masks are required, and social distancing protocol will be followed for the duration of your time in the building. Rising Kindergarten students should not attend this appointment as we will offer a Kindergarten orientation prior to the opening of school in the fall. 

We look forward to registering your child, and welcome to TES. Go Team Tuckahoe!
