Touring, Singing & Signing at the State Capitol

What a great, educational field trip to the state Capitol for our TCDS Middle School Choir, American Sign Language group and many members of Student Council. From singing and signing the National Anthem to touring the Capitol and even posing as Speaker of the House – it was an amazing day for all involved!

The students were invited by the Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives to sign and sing the National Anthem for the House members in March. Our students did an amazing job and were complimented on their excellent performance and behavior.

From singing and signing the National Anthem to touring the Capitol and even posing as Speaker of the House – it was an amazing day for all involved! Many of the same Choir students performed at the Roadrunners ice hockey game the next day. Congratulations to all!

Terrific Tales from Preschool & Prekindergarten

From building blocks and small group reading to experimenting with clay and working on their “laptops”, we have some cute tales from preschool and prekindergarten.

When a friend brings in a book, we love to share and read together.

Duplo Legos are so much fun to build with!

Ms. Wanda says these three girls told her they are working on their laptops (aka wood boards).

Early Education Art teacher Ms. S introduced clay to prekindergarten students with a very hands-on lesson!
…and feet-on… lesson!

Fifth Graders Explore Nature at Sabino Canyon

A BIG thank you to K-5 P.E. teacher and Athletics Director Mr. Hall for planning the annual event and prepping our students to explore and enjoy nature.
