Dyanthe’s Weekly Letters

Week of October 24, 2016

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

Last year, TNS partnered with the organization, Border Crossers to strengthen our analysis of how racism manifests in our school and practice utilizing tools to address race and racism with students.  We are continuing our partnership with Border Crossers this year, focusing our work on racial identity development.  We are also devoting our PD half-days to continuing to explore issues of race, racism and racial justice at our school.  This Friday we will be using descriptive processes to discuss how issues of race and racism emerge in our teaching practices and how we respond to it.

Twice each year (in November and March) we hold family conferences.  They provide an opportunity for teachers, together with the child, to talk with the adults in each child’s family about the child’s work and progress in school.  Family conferences are next week.  The building will be open for evening conferences on Wednesday, November 2nd.  Thursday, November 3rd is a half-day for conferences.  Please make sure to sign-up for a conference time with your child’s teacher.

Studio in a School begins this week.  Children will explore a full range of 2- and 3-D media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, printmaking, 2-D design, and media technology.  Valerie Hammond, long-time artist/teacher is returning to work with our children and we also welcome back Amy Masters (former ⅘ teacher), who will work with our 3rd graders on Mondays.

The After School Committee wants your feedback on the offerings available to TNS students so we can better serve all families at TNS.  Please take a few minutes to fill out this short, 10 question survey. Should literally take you 3-5 mins.  This data will help the committee to work with our existing providers and new ones to provide after school offerings that parents and students want.  Thanks for your help!


Mark Your Calendars:

  • Please join us for SING this Wednesday at 8:45am in the auditorium.  We will also have a bake sale beforehand, so please bring your appetite!

  • Our first Garden Committee Meeting is Thursday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • We have a TNS Half-day on Friday, October 28.  Dismissal is at 11:45am.
