Happy Friday! It is hard to believe term one is over and we are a third of the way through the year. I am continually amazed by how much our staff and students are able to teach and learn throughout a term. It has been a term of great growth! Thank you for all of your support at home as we start term two!

We are thankful we get to partner with each and every one of you. Our staff wishes the entire TRCS community a fantastic Thanksgiving. We will not be sending a Wave newsletter next week. Enjoy the time off from school and the time spent with friends and family! See you on the 2nd of December!

Our Pajama Drive to support Bl oomin' Bouti que , continues when we return from break through Friday, December 13th. Our school-wide goal is to collect 250 pairs of new pajamas children's sizes newborn all the way up to size 7/8. We hope you can help us meet this goal!
Here's our November Bottle Drop update! We are up nearly $75 since our last check-in at the end of October, which puts us at $409. Thank you to those who keep leaving blue bags at drop-off or pickup! Think of the TRCS Bottle Drop Drive as Thanksgiving approaches! Splurge on that fancy root beer for the kids, or consider sparkling water by the can for your guests! Please make sure to rinse your cans and bottles, fill your bags completely (there's a line on most bags), and to tie off the bags so they're secure.
