The Tigers OPeration Success (TOPS) program ended in a celebration last week. Over 60 students in the LIEP Program at Thomas Jefferson Elementary attended along with their parents. The students received a certificate and a stuffed Tiger for successful completion of the program. TOPS runs from January – April. Students stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays receiving language, literacy and numeracy instruction. Las week’s event included refreshments and time for parents, staff and students to socialize and celebrate together. TOPS is partially funded by the Falls Church Education Foundation (FCEF) whose generous donation provides for snacks, books for students to take home, enrichment field trips, a Language/Literacy program and math materials.
