Check out the school's FACEBOOK page for latest photos and videos of the school. We post almost daily whether you want us to or not. Yes, birthdays, news, and information. So take a look at the wonderful (well, what else would we say?) resource at the following FB address.

There are unofficial TBS Facebook pages, so make sure you get the real deal.

Summer Hours are generally Tues-Thurs from 8:00 to 2:00 (July), but it is best to call first. The building is being prepared for school and there is construction/painting inside and outside. Just a heads up. If you want, bring a paint brush.
We welcome JD Williams, our new high school English teacher and also Rebecca Noboa, our new K3 teacher (assisting Mrs. G). We are excited about our new additions!

What does the fall hold?
Due to the uncertainty of the situation, we really do not know for certain. We are planning for IN PERSON teaching, but we are preparing to pivot to whatever is needed. We suspect that we can open with social distancing. Our preference to have normal school with the students in class. If we are forced to go to distance learning, at least we know what to do, based on the successful transition already. But there are ways to improve, so we are working on that, too - just in case.
See below for the transition that took place in April of 2020.
Due to the corona virus pandemic gripping the nation, TBS has had a very successful switch to distance learning. We would like to take the credit, but God blessed our efforts beyond any reasonable expectations.
- Classes were available on-line from K3 through 12 with teachers available for live student interaction.
- Music lessons continued, with students meeting with their music teachers.
- The platform used was Microsoft TEAMS.
- Grading was done by scanning or taking a photo or specific postings to Microsoft Teams.
- While many schools were forced to wait until the crisis is over, our small size and nimble teachers had a virtual school up and running.
- Learning was tailored, so K3 interaction was radically different from the high school,
- The corona virus caused havoc, but we did our best to press on. It worked! No learning lost! Hats off to our teachers and IT team.
- A video of the changes that took place is available on this website.
