Global Awareness Day 2016 has created many new memories for TSS students. This year's country was New Zealand and proved to be a huge learning experience for everyone involved.
The lower school classrooms and library were transformed to look like different scenes from the country - the beaches, Auckland, the mountains, active geysers, penguins, a Maori village and so much more! The younger students dressed in costume, some of the middle school girls performed a traditional dance and some of the Upper School students performed the Haka, a fearsome war dance.
Congratulations to sophomores Melody Cheng and Yalis Waris on being accepted to the prestigious Harvard Summer School! Both students are enrolled on a course entitled, "An Intensive Introduction to Computer Science Using Java".

A Heartfelt Thanks! Thank you so much to all who contributed to the very successful annual fund participation matching grant. As of April 30, TSS has received over $33,000 in new or increased gifts from across the school community. A special thanks to our faculty and staff whose impressive support of the annual fund this year, over and above all they do on a daily basis, is especially meaningful.
The 2015-16 annual fund campaign ends on June 30 so you still have time to give if you haven't done so yet. Participation is the key so please give at any level that is meaningful to you.
