On Friday, January 27th, TEECS celebrated National School Choice Week ! We held an assembly where a student from each grade was picked to present a writing piece on why they choose TEECS and/ or why they like TEECS. All the students had a variety of writing pieces. Some had poems, essays and even songs ! They all did a great job ! At the end of the assembly the whole school participated in the National School Choice Week official 2017 dance. It was very cool seeing the whole school dance it out! It was a great way to end our week and show our love for TEECS !! Thank you to Ms. Sandman who helped the students learn the dance.
