2017-2018

Welcome back Theiss Tigers.
   I hope everyone had an exciting and restful summer break.  I am thrilled that a brand new school year is starting, and I look forward to meeting and working with my new Theiss Adventurers.  We are going to have a fantastic year! 


This year's mantra:

We MUST take
ADVENTURES in order
to KNOW 
WHERE we truly belong
(this is where your ADVENTURE begins)
