Happy Summer!

Summer camps have wrapped up and the campus is buzzing as we get ready to welcome TRS families and faculty back to school next month.

Thank you to our teachers and our TRS alumni volunteers for making our summer camps a fun learning experience for the children and for building lasting memories that they will treasure forever.

We are looking forward to seeing your smiling faces on campus next month :)

Thank You - Play Matters

Congratulations to our community for great success with the Play Matters campaign. Collectively, including pledges and donations, from teachers, current parents, grandparents, administrators, alumni, alumni parents and friends, we have raised over $180,000 in the month of May.

Your donations have put us on track to begin work this summer!! Thank You!

If you haven't had a chance to join the team, it is not too late. Donations and pledges are still vital to the success of this project. Make your commitment, today! Children, parents, and teachers are so excited to celebrate the new playground in the coming months!

What an amazing night! After the rains came, the skies cleared and we had a Cool, Cool party for a cause! Sincere thanks to Committee Chairs Jeff Warren, Beth Alley, and Rob Almony and the entire Raleigh Cool Committee.The mostly behind-the-scenes work of Renee Gimber and Heather Pace helped everything run smoothly.

This event has grown in fun each year. Drumroll please...with a record number of sponsorships, totaling $13,000, along with ticket sales, raffle, donations, and bids, we were able to raise a total of $129,000 for our TRS Tuition Assistance Fund.

Thank you to everyone in our community who made this event successful by donating, purchasing raffle tickets, attending, and by being fierce, competitive bidders! A special thanks to teachers who donated experiences and who worked with classes to create special artworks.

One final shout out to Jeff Warren, graduating chair, who was a driving force behind the creation and has been instrumental to the success of The Raleigh Cool year after year. We will miss you!

"Souper Bowl" Tradition Continues in 4th Grade

Bowl making has become a fourth grade tradition. This integrated project melds academics, arts and community service. The bowls are created in art class and are sold in the classrooms while soup is served to the students and parents. The money raised is used to buy canned goods and other products for the Urban Ministries Food Shelter. The students purchase and deliver the goods, tour the facility and help to stock the pantry shelves.
