Spring fundraiser May 4 at Harmon Field
Tuesday School, Tryon’s parent cooperative preschool, is busy this semester. In April, each class held Easter egg hunts and in May, students will visit Strawberry Hill USA to see how strawberries are grown and harvested and maybe eat a little strawberry ice cream, too.
So far this year, the 2, 3, and 4-year-old classes have completed a unit on animals culminating in “The Greatest Show in Tryon,” the Tuesday School Circus.
Every child participated by pretending to be the animals performing in a circus. The show included acrobats and trapeze artists and of course, clowns.
The preschool also learned about safety during an in-house field trip with Polk County EMS and Tryon Fire Department.
All students are hard at work on completing art portfolios, which will be “sold” to each child’s family during an end of the year art show. Some of these wonderful creations will be on display and auctioned during Tuesday School’s annual Spring Fling Fundraiser.
Come celebrate spring with Tuesday School at Harmon Field on May 4 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. This is a community event featuring lunch from Mountain View BBQ, with vegetarian options available. Kids can enjoy carnival-style games while adults can enjoy live music by Beautiful Mess and Ride with Daddy, along with a silent auction and raffle.
