Hello!

February is a short month, but it is full of activities. We encourage students to work to be their best selves as we enter the second semester and maintain momentum for a successful end to this school year. Report cards and progress reports for the first semester were mailed home on Friday, January 25.
 
Please be on the lookout for the mailing. If you did not receive the mailing, please call us at 615-231-7397. We will be happy to meet with any parent that requests a conference.
Guess what? Grounghog Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania may or may not see his shadow on February 2nd.  I wonder what winter has in store for us in 2019! 
Cupid’s arrow will fly on February 14 and our annual Kingdom of Hearts Dance will take place on the same day from 1:30-3:10 pm. Our colors for the event are red, pink, and white! We look forward to crowning our local royalty of King, Queen, Prince, and Princess during the event! Students, we encourage you to vote, vote, vote, and dress your best!  
Braille Challenge has moved up on our calendar this year to February 21. Students from across the state of Tennessee are invited to participate. Braille Challenge is a national program sponsored by the Braille Institute. The Challenge is intended to inspire school-aged braille readers to showcase their skills in braille. The Academic Challenge will run simultaneously for students that do not use braille as their learning medium. Both events provide our students with opportunities to show us what they know! Each year fun is enjoyed by all. 
February is also designated as Black History month. TSB is planning our culminating school wide assembly to celebrate the contributions of African Americans on Feb. 28 at 2:00 pm. Come out an join us during this time. 
Lastly, please don’t forget that President’s Day is celebrated on February 18 and there is no school on this day. Classes will resume on Tuesday, February 19. If questions arise, please feel free to reach out to me at 615-231-7397! Enjoy a fabulous February!
 
All the best,
