Pancake Breakfast and Art Show
For the past few years, we’ve enjoyed a hearty breakfast of pancakes, fruit and turkey sausage served by TNSM students. It’s a great opportunity to visit with friends, alumni, neighbors and other TNSM staff and parents while also enjoying a fabulous art show of students’ works and exploring the classrooms to meet with teachers and to see students’ work. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time or at the door for $7/ person or $25/ family.

Each 6th grade student gives an engaging 5-minute, power-point presentation. All are welcome to attend. It’s something special to see.

Elementary Camping / Community Trip
Elementary Camping / Community Trip
May 24 – May 25 all-day
Elementary-age students practice the independence and confidence they’ve built throughout the year in a new setting with new challenges at Camp Ernst. Students receive encouragement and cheers of support from teachers, classmates and parent chaperones as they wobble across rope bridges, glide through treetops on zip lines and rope swings, ring bells on climbing walls, paddle kayaks, and more. It’s a wonderful time to get to know one another better on this 2-day and 1-night adventure while watching students’ confidence soar as they reach one milestone after another.
