Thank you to everyone who came out for our 50th Anniversary Celebration – we had a great turnout during this Open House, Reunion and STEAM Fair!
It was an absolutely beautiful day to be outside on our school’s 10-acre campus playing with giant volleyballs and slingshots; watching our Band, Choir and Drama Club perform; checking out the fabulous artwork; taking part in multiple arts, science, technology and 50th-related activities; and so much more!
It was amazing to mingle with our current Champions, alumni Champions and guest Champions! Alumni from the FIRST graduating class at TCDS all the way to future young students turned out for the 50th Celebration. Thank you! It was an incredible day for all!
Thank you Ms. Wendy for capturing these great moments on camera.

Several middle school students spent part of their summer and a lot of time this school years constructing this amazing 3-D model of our school! WOW – very impressive!
“Art in the Dark”
Preschool and Prekindergarten teacher Ms. S hosted “Art in the Dark” – a glow in the dark, shadowy and fun STEAM event. Ms. S had a black light and students painted and drew pictures with fluorescent colors. The fluorescent light picks up the UV rays, therefore allowing artwork to glow in the dark!
On the other side of the classroom, kids and adults got to do some hands-on work with the light blox set. The light blox are colored flashlights that show red, green and blue, and they mix to make new colors.
Next up, attendees had fun at another center playing with shadows and distance. Families got to use lenses that they could bend the light with and change the direction of where to shine the light.
