To the Tinmouth School Community,
The children are back from holiday break and gearing up for our Winter Sports Program where they alpine or Nordic ski, snowboard, or skate for six Fridays starting January 10th. Please remind our young athletes to not only remember their rental equipment but to dress in layers and wear mittens, warm socks, and hats!
The TMS Student Council is collecting toiletries, hats, socks, and mittens for homeless veterans. The sixth graders will provide information and details on this project in the upcoming weeks.
Interim testing began this week. Reading assessments designed to measure reading progress to date will continue through next week. The following week, the children will complete the STAR 360 assessments, which are brief and computerized. These tests provide data that informs instruction going forward. Please have students to bed early and provide a high protein, low sugar breakfast to support their efforts. It’s easier for children to concentrate when rested and not distracted by hunger.
The school is required to keep track of student attendance. When unexcused absences accumulate, a letter is sent home. If children are habitually absent, they fall behind in their learning. Please ask for doctor’s notes when children are sick and seen by a doctor. These can be faxed or emailed directly to the school from the doctor. Our fax number is (802-446-2466. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We would like to extend a special thanks to Jeff Alexander for donating ski helmets to the school for our Winter Sports Program!
