Head of School Weekly Email: Mountain Day Photo Gallery & Upcoming Events

Dear TA Families,

We had a fabulous day hiking, exploring, and enjoying the trails and peaks of nearby mountains on Friday. The weather cooperated to make the 45th annual TA Mountain Day a success. Enjoy this preliminary photo gallery. We will add more to the mix as we continue to collect and curate photos next week.

A few ‘save the dates’ as we look ahead:

  • Friday, Sept. 29 – Welcome Dance, hosted by the 12th grade for all students
  • Friday, Oct. 6 – Fall Inservice Day, no school for students
