Tongass School of Arts and
By Aleisha Greenfield

I have a child who atteneds the Tongass Preschool that is located
in the Tongass School of Arts and Science. This is his second
year there, and I fully intend on keeping him at TSAS for all
years to come. As I have walked through TSAS over that past two
years, I have seen several things that have helped me to make
my decision to keep him there.
First on is that the classes are always busy. I very rarly see
a child wandering around in the halls without a purpose. I see
classes working together in small group discussions or large
group discussions. The teachers always seem to have the kids
busy and almost always seems as though its something that they
enjoy. I must also say that I love seeing the artwork on the
walls as you walk into the school heading to the office. There
are also some very interesting sayings and viewpoints that the
kids have written about on some of that artwork. So I would really
hope that people would stop by and see some of the work that
kids are doing at this school.
I also feel that a good reason for me to keep my son there is
that it is very hands on learning. Now I know that some kids
learn better hands on and others learn better in a visual/listening
manner. For my son his is a very hands on learner. This is something
that I really like about TSAS. They are a very hands on school
and they are willing to work with the kids and help them in what
ever ways are possible to help them.
Another reason for me to keep my son there, the ladies in the
office. To Miss Cindy and Miss Jennifer, you two do a wonderful
job of keeping things organized and should anyone, a child or
parent have a question, you both always seem to have the right
answer and if you don't have the answer, you know who to direct
them too. You both do a great job, keep it up.
I would just hope that the people of the community who dont have
kids at TSAS, would take a closer look at what the kids are doing
at the school and the types of hands on learning that they are
