Always remember, even when I’m not here to scold you, time change, values don’t.
Always hold on to yours!

Magnificent Seven Announced
Each fall and spring, the High School holds a special assembly to honor seven students who exemplify the qualities known as the Magnificent Seven. These timeless virtues—Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, Humility, Service, and Vision—are character traits that were of great importance to Founder M. Crist Fleming and continue to be highly valued by the TASIS community today.
While the fall winners are nominated by the faculty only, the spring selections are pulled from nominations made by the entire TASIS community. Congratulations to this spring’s recipients, who were announced Thursday morning.

TPA Potluck Lunch at Casa Fleming on May 30
All parents are invited to come to Casa Fleming between 12:30–14:30 on Wednesday, May 30, to enjoy one another’s company and share homemade dishes before breaking for the summer holiday. TPA President Laura Colombo will talk about this past year, discuss the new structure of the TPA Board, and discuss some of the activities proposed for 2018–2019. She will also ask parents for feedback based upon their experiences this year.
It is also time for the 2017–2018 TPA members to give parents the opportunity to be involved with the TPA next year. The 2018–2019 TPA will be organized soon, and the TPA is looking for parents who are ready to help. Drawing upon their experience over the past few years, the TPA members would like to organize the volunteering structure a bit differently to make it easier for everyone.
The TPA will have three new positions to help the president keep people involved: High School Coordinator, Middle School Coordinator, and Elementary School Coordinator.
Elections will soon be held for the positions listed below. Please let Laura Colombo know if you are curious about any of the following positions by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will be happy to meet with you to provide more details.
- TPA President
- TPA Vice President / All-School Event Coordinator
- TPA Treasurer
- TPA Communications Specialist
- High School Event Coordinator
- Middle School Event Coordinator
- Elementary School Event Coordinator
The Parent Support Committee (PSC) heads are also recruiting new members for the PSC. Please send an email to email@example.com to learn more about these positions.
