    • Box Tops are a big deal here at TCCS. In the past, we were able to collect enough box tops to win a $10,000 prize! Our total earnings for box tops that school year was over $13,000! We would love to top that this year—so make sure to save your box tops! You can send them in to your child’s teacher. Every box top is worth 10 cents. So please be sure to collect as many as you can!
    • This year our lunches will be catered by Pomodoro's.   Remember, all lunches will need to be pre-ordered and pre-paid.  You will need to let your child's teacher know by Thursdays which days your child will be ordering for the following week.  Payment must be made by Thursday for the following week as well.   There will be no exceptions.  If an order isn't placed and/or payment is not made, you will need to make sure to send a lunch with your child.   The first week of school Ms. Ester will prepare lunch for the children. If your child will be buying lunch the first week, you must put money in their lunch account by the first day of school.  Lunch cannot be purchased otherwise.   Pomodoro's service will begin on August 15.  Therefore, your first order must be submitted and paid for by Thursday, August 11.   A menu will be emailed to you within the coming days.   The cost for lunch this year will be $4.00 for all grade levels. You can make payments on your child's lunch account on our website, by clicking on the "Pay Now" link on our Home Page, or you may come into the office or send a check with your student.
