Hannah is a seventh grade student at our school who has stage 4 lymphoma and is currently in Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Students and staff want to show her we support her – and miss her here at school. On the day before Spring Break, our school had a “green out” day for Hannah.
We also recently wrote letters to and drew pictures for Hannah. Her younger brother Ryder helped get them to Phoenix for Hannah.
The recent TCDS Team Hannah Raffle Fundraiser raised $10,000 for Hannah and her family! Thank you to all who donated items, as well as all who purchased raffle tickets! A list of raffle winners can be found at:

Thank you again to each of you for the wonderful outpouring of support for Hannah and her family!
Our recent STEAM Night proved to be packed with was a lot of fun educational topics with students and families coming out to view and hear presentations from students in regards to their Science Fair Projects – as well as learn about and participate in many projects involving science, technology, engineering, art and math.
Science Fair projects filled the MPR during STEAM Night. Some students presented their projects to those in attendance. Several projects were also selected to move on to the SARSEF Science Fair. Here is a sampling of the projects.
Among the science projects was also several second grade projects. In these pictures, the first group worked on a project involving what melts ice cubes; the second group discovered which beverages stain teeth the darkest; and the third group (holding green pieces of paper) conducted experiments to see what cleans pennies the best.
Growing our WIGS!
Last month, Ms. Adrienne’s second grade Coyotes participated in a grade-wide WIG, recording their at-home reading minutes. Reporting in as a class, the Coyotes read 7,674 minutes! The class earned an extra recess for their hard work and were very proud of themselves.
Currently, the Coyotes are working on WIGs that they created for themselves. The class decided to continue their in-class reading WIG and create a new one recording their behavior in Specials classes.
When Ms. Adrienne offered to help students track any goals they set for themselves, many students brought in a variety of WIGs, which is hanging up on the Coyote WIGs Board – you can check them out below.
Way to be proactive Coyotes! Goal-setting is a skill that will help to always be leaders!
