TV Turnoff - TV Turnoff is a celebrated Tuscan tradition. Kids commit to turning away from their screens and toward other activities. They can choose different levels of commitment - gold, silver or bronze. The following is a note from Principal Majeed.
The TV Turnoff email was sent on October 1, 2015 via School Messenger Service.
