Thanks a bunch !

Thanks a BUNCH Tussing!
Mr. James challenged Tussing students to collect 300 jars of peanut butter & jelly for the Colonial Heights Food Pantry.  If that challenge was met, Mr. James agreed to dress up as a banana for the day.  There was such a tremendous response, that we collected above that amount!

Tussing's Friendship Rock

Friendship Rock

If a student (or an adult) is lonely and doesn’t have anyone to play with during recess, they can go over and sit on the rock, and others will see them and go over to invite them to play.

A special thank you to the Colonial Heights Recreation Department and City of Colonial Heights Public Works for the donation of the rock and moving it to its location on our playground.
