· Every year, our students and staff present a special program known to all as The Big Event. This program focuses attention on one area of the curriculum and culminates a year's study. Even though the program spotlights one area of the curriculum, we integrate all areas of study-from math to language arts to art-into the final production.
One of the rewarding elements of every event is the sense of community our children feel working in "cross-age" learning teams. Students from Kindergarten through Grade Eight work side-by-side, learning from and helping each other. These groups allow our Middle School students to develop their leadership skills and allow younger students the opportunity work with the older students. These groups allow our students to work together and come to know each other which enhances the sense of each student feeling as if they are part of the larger community that is TCPS!
Students and staff maintain the Big Event as a surprise until the day of the event. On the day of the event, the theme is announced and the crowd is welcomed onto the campus, which is transformed into a setting which highlights the theme of the event. The day of the event is educational, fun filled, and a day that our families and guests enjoy a memorable time together.
