TCCES President’s Greeting
Dear TCCES Friends and Family:
Last August, shortly before the school year began, TCCES administrators, faculty and staff gathered for
a daylong retreat at St. Norbert Abbey where the theme for the year was unveiled: “think WE…then
think me.” Thereafter, this focus on moving forward with a system-oriented, “we are in this together”
frame of mind permeated the academic year.
I was gratified to see this focus on “system” exemplified in many ways, including:
• The opening of the incredible new Jane Bergstrom Fine Arts Education Center. The dream to build
this facility was realized through the combined efforts of a dedicated core committee, hundreds of
enthusiastic volunteers and many generous donors. Since the gala grand opening, it has been the venue
for dozens of TCCES activities from elementary concerts to meetings, community events and musical
performances by Seton, St. Mary Central and the TCCES Community Theater.
• The emphasis on collaboration and professional staff development within academic subjects and
across grade levels to improve our efforts to provide a well-rounded, academically challenging and
technology-enhanced Catholic education.
• Continued success in standardized test results at all levels: in MAP (Measure of Academic Progress)
tests taken by grades 2-9 and in ACT college-prep testing scores; as well as an increase in the number
of SMC students taking AP (Advanced Placement) exams and in the number of those achieving high
• Ongoing success of our technology clubs with nearly 70 students signing up for the inaugural year of
Junior Lego League at the elementary level, Seton’s FIRST Lego League achieving their highest ranking
yet in their sixth consecutive trip to the state meet and the VEX Robotics Club sending numerous
teams to both the national and world championships for the seventh year in a row.
These accomplishments were made possible by the support, prayers and dedication of our TCCES
friends and family. We thank you who choose Catholic education for your children, as well as you who
provide support to our TCCES schools. In the face of increasing secularism in our world, our TCCES
schools provide a nurturing environment that emphasizes Gospel values and a curriculum that prepares
students to be 21st century leaders.
Patrick Batey, President
Twin City Catholic Educational System
A Word from the TCCES
Board of Trustees President
Dear Friends and Supporters of Twin City Catholic Educational System:
The 2012-13 school year was one of great anticipation as we witnessed the construction of the
Jane Bergstrom Fine Arts Education Center and the new technology wing. It was also a year of
great enjoyment and pride as we joined in a gala grand opening and dedication, and then watched
TCCES students of all ages participate in performances; academic, service and sports recognition
programs; liturgies, classes and graduation ceremonies in the beautiful facility.
Even as the excitement of our new TCCES fine arts education center captured the community’s
imagination, the board of trustees remained focused on supporting education and technology, and
on sound fiscal management. The work of the board is evidenced by:
• The revitalization of the TCCES Technology Committee now charged with strengthening
the partnership between education and technology, addressing the issue of aging hardware and
creating a new five-year strategic plan.
• A commitment to increasing the student population at all of our TCCES campuses, and
the assignment and support of a special task force to address the enrollment goals at St. Mary
Elementary School.
• A commitment to developing and supporting accurate and appropriate communication to our
constituents in a positive and timely manner.
Moving forward, the board of trustees is committed to sustaining our focus on excellence in
education through continuing-education for faculty, interschool collaboration and technology;
enrollment growth at all levels; and addressing the challenges of our aging middle school.
We have been blessed in countless ways. Our school community is made up of students,
alumni, faculty & staff members and other friends who have one thing in common—we have
all been touched by the mission and the people of Twin City Catholic Educational System.
The extraordinary support of many TCCES friends and benefactors enables us to carry out
our mission of providing a quality Catholic education focused on faith, academics, service and
personal development.
We are grateful for and indebted to each one of you, and humbly ask for your continued prayers,
commitment of your time as volunteers and generous financial support.

We believe in the value and importance of Catholic school education as
an integral part of the Neenah, Menasha, and surrounding area parish
Recognizing the critical importance of partnering with family, Church, and
community, our role within these communities is to provide our children from
preschool through high school with a strong educational foundation anchored
in our faith, and based on the Beatitudes.
Twin City Catholic Educational System, in partnership with family, Church
and community, provides a quality Catholic education that is focused on faith,
academics, service and personal development from preschool through high
school to influence a rapidly changing world.
More Steps Forward in the TCCES
Quest for Academic Excellence
In 2012-13, TCCES concentrated on
strengthening and broadening the curriculum
improvements that were started during the
previous school year. The system’s focus last year
was on student learning outcomes (SLOs), which
are being developed in addition to continued
implementation of the Common Core
Standards, which are endorsed by the National
Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), the
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
(USCCB) and the Diocese of Green Bay.
In the fall of 2012, ten TCCES teachers (two
from each building) and Jeanine Leege, director
of curriculum, attended three full days of
training in the implementation of SLOs. They
learned about implementing observation-based
expectations for their students based on data in
different subject areas. The educators returned
to their buildings very enthusiastic about this
educational tool, and shared the information
with their colleagues. Later, all TCCES educators
participated in a daylong workshop on the topic.
In addition to the student-focused learning
objectives, another educational focus during
the 2012-13 school year was the system-wide
science curriculum. Next-generation science
standards (NGSS) are K-12 standards based
on current research on science and science
learning. A cohort of TCCES science teachers
and Curriculum Director Jeanne Leege attended
training and met for three days to put together
the preliminary framework for a system-wide
plan for moving forward in science education,
which will include a greater emphasis on
engineering education. Next Generation Science
Standards and Common Core standards that
focus on math, English and Language arts
provide a rigorous framework to meet 21st
century learning needs.
Groups of teachers from all campuses
continued to meet throughout the year to
work on these three initiatives. In addition,
they were introduced to another important
tool that was made available to them late last
year—a password-protected website designed
specifically for TCCES educators. This website,
administered by Mrs. Leege, offers in-depth
information on TCCES curriculum, instruction,
assessment and professional development. She
continually updates the site, which she sees
as a way to provide support to and facilitate
an ongoing conversation among our TCCES

so that we can continue to provide a well-rounded,
outstanding Catholic education for our future
The TCCES/SMC Annual Fund is
Essential to our Success
The Twin City Catholic Educational System/St. Mary Central Annual Fund remained strong in 201213, with 646 generous donors giving nearly $140,000 for operations expenses and tuition assistance. As
illustrated below, there is a significant gap between the actual cost to educate a TCCES student and the
amount covered by tuition. We face a significant challenge since parish subsidy amounts continue to
decline (as planned), and the remaining gap must be bridged through third-source fundraising and our
annual fund appeal.

Only in this personal relationship with Christ…do we really
become Christians. Therefore, let us pray …that He will
grant us a lively faith, an open heart, and great charity for all,
capable of renewing the world.
-Blessed John Paul II
One of many 2012-13 highlights:
Unity in our Catholic faith is an important facet of education
in TCCES elementary schools. Prior to the school year
beginning, administrators developed a series of faith-oriented
activities, lessons plans and prayer services for all elementary
students to engage in. This included the addition of special
observations on the feast days of each school’s patron saint,
and parallel activities for the seasons of Advent and Lent.
One of many 2012-13 highlights:
The TCCES quest for excellence is reflected in the system’s
continued emphasis on refining a curriculum that is aligned
from kindergarten through twelfth grade. TCCES educators
attended professional workshops and multilevel, subject-specific
meetings to establish a seamless progression from grade to grade
in all academic areas. This effort is further enhanced by the
sustained growth of technology in our schools.
Following Jesus means learning how to come out of ourselves
to reach out to others…to bring the living presence of Jesus,
merciful and full of love!
-Pope Francis I
One of many 2012-13 highlights:
Several years ago, Seton established the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
Service award which can be earned by middle school students
who complete service hours well above the general school
requirement in specified areas, complete additional study and
journaling, and obtain letters of recommendation. Last year, 25
Seton students put in the extra effort to earn this recognition
and pledged to follow Elizabeth Ann Seton’s example of a life
of service.
Set against (the world’s) personal struggles, moral confusion and fragmentation of
knowledge, the noble goals of scholarship and education, founded on the unity of truth
and in service of the person and the community, become an especially powerful
instrument of hope.

…offer opportunities for students
in the areas of fine arts, leadership,
service, world languages, athletics
and activities.
Twin City Catholic Educational System (TCCES ) enrollment continues to move upward overall,
in contrast to the state and nationwide downward trend in Catholic education. The administrators
and faculty at each of the five TCCES schools know that a Catholic education is a choice that many
families make great sacrifices to provide for their children. TCCES recognizes that commitment and
strives to provide the best possible well-rounded experience to every student whose family chooses a
TCCES education.
According to new TCCES families, reasons for choosing our school system include:
• a welcoming, family-oriented community
• the recommendation of current TCCES families
• the emphasis in TCCES schools on technology
• our strong curriculum, varied and numerous co-curricular opportunities • current students’ success
• new opportunities in the fine arts education center and technology classrooms
• competitive tuition rates in comparison to other area schools
• our commitment to Catholic values, teachings and sacramental opportunities
• the dedication of recruitment personnel in sharing information and providing opportunities to experience TCCES
• growing community knowledge and excitement about what TCCES has to offer
2006-07 2007-08
2010-11 2011-12 2012-13
…support families in their desire to provide
a Catholic education for their children by
providing need-based tuition to nearly 46%
of TCCES students in grades K-12. While
our enrollment is increasing, so is the
amount of assistance sought each year.

Raising the Curtain on our
Beautiful New Fine Arts Facility
April 13, 2013 was a day of celebration with the grand opening and dedication
ceremony of the Jane Bergstrom Fine Arts Education Center on the campus of St. Mary
Central High School. This project fulfills a long-held dream of building a fine arts center
to enhance a well-rounded Catholic education and inspire growth in the elementary,
middle and high school fine arts programs. In the months after the plan was unveiled, a
core committee and more than 200 dedicated volunteers worked tirelessly toward that
vision raising more than $4.7 million over the course of 18 months.
The grand opening festivities included tours of the fine arts center and technology
classrooms, a dedication ceremony and a special concert. The Most Reverend David L.
Ricken, Bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay, blessed the theatre, praying that all those
who use the facility will use their God-given talents for His glory and for the enjoyment
of all future audiences. The keys to the fine arts center were received by students
representing all five TCCES schools and all of the fine arts. The Duttons, of Branson,
Missouri fame, performed two special concerts on the new stage.
The 22,000-square-foot addition, which was built by Miron Construction, Inc., includes
495-seat theater with a fly system and state-of-the art sound, lighting and production
equipment. A 96-seat “black box” theater, dressing rooms, scene and costume shops and
four entirely new technology-oriented classrooms were also added to the building.
The facility now benefits nearly 1,000 students, their families and other community
members. Since the grand opening, the theater is seldom empty. Since spring, it has
been used for all SMC liturgies and assemblies, a live broadcast of Catholic radio
personality Father Rocky’s “Go Ask Your Father”, Seton’s performance of Guys and Dolls,
Jr., all elementary, middle and high school band concerts, the elementary schools’ spring
music shows, the Seton and SMC choral concerts and awards presentations, the SMC
Junior/Senior Prom, the Zephyr Players’ presentation of Beauty and the Beast, Seton’s
and SMC’s awards and graduation ceremonies, the SMC Alumni Awards Event and the
TCCES Community Theater’s production of Oliver. The reception area and theater are
also used for non-TCCES gatherings and performances.
Our community is very excited about and grateful for this incredible gift, which has
already become an integral part of a well-rounded education for all TCCES students.

Sandy Ehlers became
principal of Seton Catholic
Middle School in 2012
following the retirement of
Monica Bausom at the end
of the previous school year.
Ehlers was a teacher at Seton
for 12 years and at SMC
for two years prior to her
tenure as principal of St. John Neumann Catholic
Middle School in Oshkosh. As the parent of two
TCCES/SMC graduates, Ehlers stated that she
was pleased to return to TCCES and to continue
her professional career with the dedicated staff
at Seton. Ehlers’ educational philosophy focuses
on fostering teamwork, respecting self and others
and helping students to develop interpersonal
skills, manage conflict, think critically, and serving
our community. She strives to help create an
environment at the middle schools where prayer
is a part of daily life and scripture-based positive
character traits such as respect, compassion, justice,
unity, self-control, patience, kindness and integrity
permeate every school day.
In fall 2012, Jeanine Leege, principal of St.
Gabriel Elementary School, was appointed director
of curriculum, charged with overseeing the
development and implementation of standardsbased curriculum and professional development
for all of TCCES. Leege
enjoys continuing in her
role as principal along with
additional responsibility,
which she says allows her to
be involved in the two aspects
of education about which she
is most passionate—students
and curriculum.
With the retirement of Mr. Michael Buss as
principal of St. Mary Elementary School, TCCES
did not have to look far to find a suitable successor.
In May, TCCES announced that Jill Ahles from
Seton Catholic Middle School will assume the
position of principal of St. Mary in the fall of 2013.
Ahles’s first teaching job was in a fourth grade
classroom at St. Mary Elementary School, and after
staying home with her young children she returned
to TCCES at Seton where she was both recognized
as a Kohl Fellowship teacher and was the very
first recipient of the TCCES St. John Baptist de la
Salle Outstanding Teacher Award. An active parish
member at St. Mary her entire life, Ahles spent her
early years at St. Mary Elementary School and then
went on to attend the original St. Mary Central
High School. Now, she and her husband are
sending their daughters through TCCES schools
and their son is an SMC alumnus.
$crip Participation and the
Benefits to TCCES Skyrocket
Since October of last year when the online $crip
program was launched, the number of users and
the dollar amount going to families’ tuition,
TCCES tuition assistance and the participating
parishes of Neenah and Menasha skyrocketed!
According to TCCES Director of Business Services
Jeanne Lee, the dollar amount of profit more
than doubled last year, and the number of users
increased to more than 680. While the current
participation rate of 45% is a significant increase
from the prior year, many more TCCES families
could still take advantage of this benefit to achieve
a real reduction in the cost of tuition.
Of the $209,000 disbursed to TCCES through
the $crip program, $40,000 went to general
tuition assistance for TCCES school families,
$20,000 went to the Neenah-Menasha parishes
and a substantial $149,000 went directly to reduce
participants’ personal tuition bills. In addition,
families with children who attend religious
education classes or prepare for sacraments are
using TCCES $crip to offset the cost of religious
education fees. The dollars now going to the
scholarship program and parishes had been
previously applied to administrative costs, but is
now “new money” for those important recipients.
Lee hopes to see continued growth in the number
of TCCES and parish participants, and in the
dollars credited as word gets out about how easy
and financially lucrative it is to use the program.
She encourages constituents to take advantage of
this opportunity to earn “free money” to help pay
for a faith-based education for their children.
Three dedicated individuals received special
recognition at the annual year-end Mass and
reception for TCCES faculty and staff that was
held at St. Gabriel Parish on June 7, 2013. The
recipients of these three annually-bestowed
awards were each nominated by several parents,
students and/or peers, and then an administrative
committee reviewed and prayerfully considered
the nominating essays and chose the finalists. A list
of the comments from their supporters was given
every person who was nominated for an award.
The St. Frances
Xavier Positive
Influence Award was
presented to Nancy
Stevenson, prekindergarten teacher
at St. Margaret Mary
Elementary, for
continually going
above and beyond
to make sure that
her students feel
school is a haven
for learning and growing. She promotes personal
growth, spirituality and life-long learning as the
path to future success.
The St. Anne TCCES Spirit Award was presented
to Deb Schultz, school secretary at St. Mary
Elementary School. Mrs. Schultz shows an
outstanding commitment to presenting all TCCES
schools in a positive
manner and works
to retain and recruit
TCCES students
and families to all
of our schools. She
actively encourages
parents, families,
parishioners and
the community
to learn more
about our other
schools and programs and takes personal pride and
responsibility in TCCES’s success.
The St. John
Baptist de la Salle
Teacher Award was
presented to SMC
Learning Specialist
Lisa Van Camp.
Mrs. Van Camp
inspires, supports
and challenges her
students to achieve
to their fullest
potential. She excels in creativity, rapport with
students and individualized instruction, and has a
very positive attitude.

SMC: A Home Away From Home
Although a small school, St. Mary Central High
School embraces opportunities on a global scale.
Not only do SMC student and faculty seek out
international enrichment through technology, they
also do so
by reaching
out to and
students from
a variety of
enhance our school culture, and contributes to the
system’s budget through the tuition charged. The
program has grown from one student in 2011-12
to six in 2012-13, with the numbers projected to
increase by several students the following year as
well. Program Liaison Jennifer Miller states that
TCCES is being very careful to maintain a good
balance. “It is important to keep the number of
exchange students small enough that they are able
to blend into the school without creating an isolated
community of their own, but large enough that
they don’t
feel alone
and have the
support to
step out and
get involved.”
STS has a
Over the years, SMC has embraced students from
many countries and through many programs,
but two organizations have developed a special
relationship with our community.
For decades, St. Mary Central has welcomed two
to three students per year from Eastern Europe
through Global Outreach, a Catholic organization
with roots right here in the Fox Cities. Students
from countries such as Lithuania, the Czech
Republic and Poland forge lasting relationships with
our community as they pursue their common goal
of learning to become leaders in the faith in their
home countries. Both students and host families are
carefully screened to ensure a successful experience,
and Global Outreach students are known for getting
involved in the academic, co-curricular and faith
opportunities offered at St. Mary Central.
More recently, SMC has also begun welcoming
students through STS, a not-for-profit corporation
dedicated to intercultural student exchange. First
pursued as a logical counterpart to our Mandarin
Chinese language and culture curriculum, the STS
partnership with Asian students has proven to
process for both the student visitors and their
host families, which Miller helps to facilitate. The
students are required to have good English skills and
grades, the desire to travel and a broad spectrum
of interests. A potential host family completes an
extensive questionnaire, and then undergoes a
background check and home visit. “I think the fact
that many students will be returning next year to
the same host families is an indication that the STS
program is working well for everyone involved.”
states Miller. Plans are also underway to designate
a faculty liaison to aid all exchange students in
making and sustaining a successful transition to life
as a student at St. Mary Central.
…offer professional development opportunities for
faculty, enabling them to focus on differentiated
instruction for each student and to effectively use
technology as an educational tool.
Success in Academics
TCCES uses the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) tests to track the scholastic progress of
all TCCES students in grades 2-9. The questions in this year’s assessments were aligned directly
with the state’s Common Core Standards in reading and language arts. MAP is a computerbased assessment program that uses questions of increasing difficulty in the areas of reading,
mathematics and language to estimate student achievement. MAP tests are administered in the
fall and spring of each school year, and the averages below reflect the spring 2013 evaluation
According to Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), the test’s administering agency, status
norms offer a starting point for educators to review data, and help them gain an understanding
of each child’s current academic level. This insight assists instructors in preparing differentiated
lesson plans for individual students, and the information obtained through MAP and its reports
can also be used, as in the chart below, to compare class- or grade-level performance to the 5.1
million students who took the tests in 2012-13.
TCCES MAP scores reflect the educational value TCCES offers. Further evidence lies in St.
Mary Central students’ average ACT score of 24.3 that ranked second highest among all Fox
Cities schools in 2012-13. In addition, SMC consistently has 100% of graduates taking the test.
The school has also had National Merit Scholar Finalists for the past four years, meaning that
they scored in the top .5% of students across the nation. In 2012-13, two SMC seniors earned
that distinction.

After 42 years as an educator in TCCES schools,
Mr. Michael Buss retired from his role as principal
of St. Mary Elementary School. Buss began teaching
in 1971 at St. Margaret Mary where he taught
fourth through eighth grade for twenty years, and
then became principal of St. Mary in 1991. During
his years in TCCES Buss was active, along with
his wife, Anne (a teacher at St. Gabriel), both as
employees and as parents of three children who
are all now SMC alumni. Mr. Buss was active in
coaching basketball, cross country and Seton’s
FIRST Lego League. A former science teacher, Buss
also greatly enjoyed leading St. Mary students in
lab experiments on occasion, and students looked
forward to
having their
in the
with them.
Being a
of Catholic
taking a
in the
success of his students and sporting ties from his
wardrobe of colorful neckwear will be Buss’s fondly
remembered trademarks as principal of St. Mary
Elementary School.

…provide reasonable, just salary and
benefits for our exceptional faculty,
which includes recipients of TCCES
excellence awards and 13 Kohl
Fellowship Teacher’s Award winners.
Several other educators retired from TCCES
last year. We extend our sincere thanks to Pat
Bowen, Larry Orth and Judy Stoffel (TCCES
Elementary Schools); Mary Buchta, Sue Callan
and Jim Machamer (Seton); and Mike Heideman
and Bruce Nufer (SMC). In addition, TCCES
Director of Advancement Ann Engelhard stepped
down from her position after ten years of strong
We appreciate the dedication and commitment each
has shown to Catholic education, and wish them
the very best.
Each and every prayer for students, faculty, staff and administration, as well as your participation at the
schools or in any special event, is a great gift to TCCES.
Gifts of Cash
This is the most popular form of investing in TCCES. Every donation, whether unrestricted or for a
specific purpose, is tax deductible.
Annual Fund Campaign
Each year TCCES conducts an annual appeal that benefits the TCCES Foundation. Unlike campaigns
that do so much to provide enhancements for our students, the annual appeal helps to cover necessities
such as textbooks, technology, buildings and grounds maintenance, and scholarship assistance.
Matching Gifts
Many companies have programs that will match individual financial contributions to TCCES,
effectively doubling the contribution. Several area employers will make a donation based upon the
number of volunteer hours a worker contributes to an organization.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts to TCCES in the form of stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares yield considerable, immediate tax
advantages for the donor. Appreciated securities can be transferred without causing the donor to realize
gain on the appreciation, still yielding a current deduction.
Planned Gifts
Planned gifts are contributions left by a donor through his or her estate. A statement in the donor’s will
or trust can direct the personal representative to gift to TCCES.
Life Insurance
By designating TCCES as a sole or shared beneficiary on a life insurance policy, a donor is able to make
a substantial contribution at a relatively small cost. Premium payments are tax deductible.
A bequest to TCCES may reduce the taxation on one’s estate, making the net cost of the gift less
than its face value. This can be done with a new or existing policy, IRA annuity, employer group term
insurance, or your retirement plan.
Trusts and Annuities
Trusts can be established to allow TCCES to receive a lifetime income.
Memorial Tributes and Gifts
Gifts can be given in memory of a friend or a loved one. Gifts may also be given in honor of an
anniversary, birthday, graduation or other significant event.
…maintain optimal
ratios in TCCES
classrooms, allowing
educators to focus on
meeting the needs of
individual students,
whether challenged or

During the 2012-13 school year, The St. Mary
kindergarten class piloted a tablet program using
the devices with age-appropriate educational
programs and teachers at all TCCES schools
received special training to effectively use the
Smart boards that are now located in most of the
main classrooms in our K-8 schools.
In conjunction with the system’s emphasis
on technology in education, four interactive
classroom/labs were part of the fine arts
education center building project at the St. Mary
Central site. Each includes special equipment
to fulfill the classroom’s specific educational
purpose and enhance students’ 21st century
skills. The Distance-Learning Classroom offers
new opportunities for students, teachers and
community members to build vital skills through
live, interactive seminars, lab simulations and
virtual fieldtrips, access educational networks
to obtain direct connections to real-world
professionals in hundreds of fields and enroll
in AP, CAPP, specialized and accelerated classes
from schools across the state. The Forensic/
Presentation Lab is equipped with tools to
help students enhance their interpersonal
communication skills and craft quality
presentations. The Business Marketing and
Graphic (BMG) Design Lab provides an
environment for students to create high-quality
digital and print media. This lab will enable
students to become proficient with tools that
are commonly used in a wide range of creative
industries to produce real-world presentations
and graphic designs. The purpose of the
Innovation, Science, Technology, Engineering
and Math (I-STEM) Lab is to provide students
the high-tech resources needed to apply math
and science knowledge using engineering
technologies including computer-aided design
(CAD) software.
Incoming TCCES Board of Trustees President
Jeff Berg has established a technology committee
that will focus on addressing the issue of aging
equipment in our schools and developing a
new long-term vision for technology in TCCES
schools. Joining Berg on the committee are
retired Kimberly Clark technology expert
Pat Hickey, TCCES administrators who
will provide the education perspective and
the director of curriculum, who will provide
curriculum alignment expertise. Members of
the TCCES technology department specializing
in infrastructure, equipment and teacher
education, along with outside consultants, will
be used as resources for the committee.
The focus of the committee will be building on
the system’s current technology successes such as
the high school’s one-to-one laptop program and
the emphasis on teacher training. They will set
priorities and work toward improved consistency
and standards, as well as addressing the issue of
the many aging personal computers throughout
the system. This committee is ready to address
the ongoing challenges of integrating technology
and education, ensuring TCCES’s position as an
area leader.
…enhance our strong
curriculum with technology
equipment and software,
as well as the technical
support to keep them
functioning optimally,
giving our students and
their teachers access to the
21st century tools
they need.
In celebration of the importance of technology
in education, TCCES participated in the
nation’s second annual Digital Learning Day
in February. Special Digital Learning Day
activities and events were planned using
technology that is used every day in the TCCES
classrooms on all five campuses. These special
projects included:
In addition to activities for students, TCCES
offered two sessions for community members
including an internet safety information session
for parents and an opportunity to gain handson experience with Smartphones.
• students using tablets, Skype, digital cameras,
laptops and Smart boards for special Digital
Learning Day projects in the elementary
• teachers integrating use of laptops, Smart
boards, digital projectors and responsecollecting software and students attending their
choice of two information sessions regarding
technology in the workplace presented by
15 local professionals from the fields of
engineering, medicine, finance, marketing, IT,
graphic arts and law enforcement
• SMC students attending forums presented
by their choice of two from among 17
professionals in the fields of healthcare,
marketing, law enforcement, engineering, IT,
aeronautics, real estate, business, engineering
and music to hear about technology in the
workplace. They also enjoyed completing three
fun quizzes, accessible only by QR code, for the
chance to win a prize.
