Dear Parents and Guardians,

Indeed, March came in like a lion, but certainly not leaving like a lamb. As I watch the snow falling one last time out the office window I keep reminding myself that tomorrow is April 1st. The staff and children alike are looking forward to putting boots and winter coats aside for the school year.

Girls on the Run program at Tinmouth has been up and running since March 7th. The girls and staff are looking forward to running outside in the soccer field rather than doing laps in the gymnasium. Maybe next week the weather will be more forgiving!

We completed SBAC state testing for ELA as well as federal NAEP tests this month. Math SBACs are scheduled to start the week after spring break followed by Science SBACs. We certainly live in a data driven society! The students take these tests in stride. They devote an hour or two to completing the online tests and then continue with their day. This generation of students is technologically savvy and seems to understand that online testing is integral to their learning.

Spring break begins on Monday, April 17th. Students return to school on Monday, April 24th. This is an opportunity to take a day off to spend with your children reading a favorite book or hunting for signs of spring such as new lambs, daffodils and peepers!

Many thanks to everyone for your ongoing support! Enjoy the break!
