Calendar Days to Note

Every Friday during the school year is a “Dress Down Day,” where students can wear an outfit of their choice for $1.00. All monies raised will be used for campus improvement initiatives. As of July 1st, TCDS no longer accepts cash payments. Payment for Dress Down Day is to be made here. For those who are looking to make one dress down payment for the whole year, there are thirty-two available Fridays for students to dress down.   

Every Wednesday throughout the school year, starting August 4th, is a half-day. K-3rd graders are released at 11:30, and 4th-8th graders are released at 12:00 each Wednesday. A Wednesday-only Champion Care option is available for $5/week for an entire family. If you need to utilize Champion Care at anytime, you’ll need to complete a registration packet here.

Communication

In order to provide a more quality user experience, Class Dojo will be shut down for maintenance starting July 19th. All parents will be invited back to Class Dojo the week of August 2nd. In the meantime, all TCDS parent communication will be sent via email and updated on this page.

School supplies

To view the Kinder and 1st grade supply list, click here. For 2nd-8th grade students, the only school supply needed is a Chromebook (preferred) or laptop. Please see the document below for details.


Technology

TCDS 2nd-8th grade students have three options when it comes to use of computers at school. Computers are optional for Kindergarten and 1st grade students.

Option 1: Purchase a Chromebook from TCDS

Chromebooks are available for purchase, here.

Payment plans for your Chromebook purchase may be available. Please email our CFO, Lauren Mosgrove: lmosgrove@tcdschampions.com .

Option 2: Purchase a Chromebook from an outside vendor

Chromebooks are different from laptops. Confused? Read this article that explains the differences.

Check vendors such as Best Buy, Amazon, Dell, Walmart, Samsung, or Office Depot, to name a few. If you choose this option it is recommended that you act fast as inventory is limited due to high demand.

Buying tips

Option 3: Bring your own laptop/Chromebook

Students may use their own Chromebooks or laptops; either option must meet the requirements as stated in the device policy, found here.

Please contact Rachel Robertson, our program coordinator, if you have any further questions <rrobertson@tcdscampions.com>.
