TLCA Students will be reporting for school August 14, as Texas Leadership Charter Academy’s Board of Directors approved the 2017-2018 School Calendar.
In developing the calendar, students' time will be calculated in minutes, and teachers are still under a ten-month contract of 187 calendar days.
School districts and charter schools are required to operate for a minimum of 75,600 minutes, including intermissions and recess, according to state mandates.
Highlights from the new calendar include: first day of instruction will be August 14; Students and Staff will have the week of Thanksgiving off November 20-24; Christmas break will be December 22 – January 5 with students returning January 9; last day of class is May 18; spring break will remain aligned with Districts in respective cities, March 12-16 and graduation is set for May 18.
The CAP cadets at the Junior High campus have been busy learning to fly. We learn aerospace in the classroom but also put our lessons to use in a CAP plane where the students are given lessons from a well trained CAP pilot. What an opportunity for these students!
Congratulations to TLCA HS Caleb Ricks.
Caleb got 2nd chair out of 16 at the state competition in San Antonio. This means that out of all the trumpets in the A, AA, and AAA bands in the state, Caleb is second. Way to represent TLCA Caleb!
