TCNS News!

February has been a very busy month!  
We had a visit from the dentist to teach the children about dental health and how to take care of our teeth.  
We had a therapy dog, Ricky, come visit the children.  We learned a little about his care, his schooling to become a therapy dog, and how to approach dogs we don't know.
We held a family sweetheart dance and silent auction fundraiser, which raised over $500 for the preschool!
Next month we look forward to Spirit week before spring break.
