  • If you have received your child’s the period III report card last week, please sign and return it to the teacher this week. We started the report card this year to improve the teacher and parent communication. I would like to know your thought about this review process. You can drop me an email or grab me at the office.
  • Election Day is this Sunday! Please cast your ballot for Principal and Board member in the office. I am seeking the second term as the Principal, and the focus for 2011-2012 will be to improve teaching plans and learning experience. Student parent  Li-Chu Lo kindly agreed to join the TCLS School Board to guide every aspect of our school operation.
