BIG NEWS! As many of you know, Tarrant Intermediate School was originally Tarrant Middle School and only became TIS a few years ago. Because our building was originally constructed for older kids, TIS has no playground.
But we're going to create one! TIS is announcing a campaign to raise $65,000 for a new, state-of-the-art playground that will allow all of our children to have access to constructive play time. Research shows that children succeed both academically and socially when given that access, and our kids have been asking for one since I arrived here in 2015.
Kaboom! has granted us $15,000, and we are currently in talks with several local businesses for donations to make this happen. Projected build day is late spring of 2018, hopefully in time for our 6th graders to enjoy it before they leave for THS.
Be on the lookout for ways you can participate in the tremendous endeavor! As always, thanks for your support!
