Dear Neighborhood School Families,

This fall, TNS will once again host several groups of Dutch educators who are part of a nationwide initiative called Platform Onderwijs 2032 (Platform Education 2032).  Each group is composed of teachers and administrators from pre-kindergarten to high school who are interested in identifying and making good educational practice visible, implementing it, organizing and supporting teacher/administrator education and taking part in the public debate on education.  During these visits, they will observe classrooms and speak with the teachers, children and parents in an effort to build upon their understanding of what constitutes a good education.  

TNS staff and families have formed a Relief for Puerto Rico Committee in response to Hurricane Maria.  Each week, families can donate supplies.  There will be a large box in the Lobby for donations.  Please see the schedule below:

Baby Week - Oct 16th - 20th (powder formula, diapers, wipes)

Hygiene Week - Oct 23rd - 27th (tampons, sanitary napkins, deodorant, bar soap)

First Aid Week - Oct 30th - Nov 3rd (band aids, gauze, tape, antiseptic spray/lotion)

Batteries Week - Nov 6th - 10th (all sizes)

NYC Parks is renovating the North side (4th street) of McKinley Playground.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and let us what is important to your children: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3RWSBSC

Mark Your Calendars:

  • The Diversity Committee meets Monday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • The Grants Committee meets Tuesday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • We have a  PTA meeting on Thursday at drop-off in the PTA Room.

  • Friday is a TNS half-day.  Dismissal is at 11:45 a.m.

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

All families must complete a Lunch Form application.  This information determines our school’s eligibility for additional funding.  All families have received a hard copy, but you can complete it online at https://www.myschoolapps.com. You will need your child’s birth date, but it is NOT required to enter the school ID number. You can also get a form from Gladys in the office.  One lunch form per family.  Thank you!

Once again I will host a series of informal gatherings for families each month to discuss topics of interest to our community this year - so please email your suggestions!  The first “Morning Hour” will be Thursday, October 12th in the PTA Room right after drop off.  We will discuss progressive education and in preparation, I encourage you to read Alfie Kohn’s article, Progressive Education: Why It’s Hard to Beat, But Also Hard to Find.  We usually begin each year with this article; I think it is a good starting point for future conversations.

Mark Your Calendars:

  • Today is Picture Day!   Say cheese!  The picture time of your child’s class will be posted outside of their classroom. Lorraine, PTA Events officer, is looking for a few volunteers to help keep the classes flowing… email Lhutra@gmail.com if you can help.

  • The PTA Exec Meeting is Wednesday at drop-off in the PTA Room.  All are welcome.

  • There is a breakfast for the class parent representatives on Friday morning in the PTA Room.  The purpose is to outline responsibilities, to identify whom you can go to for help, and to share relevant tips + ideas and concerns.

Warmly,

Dyanthe

Please let me know if you are able to teach, even if it’s very basic knowledge, in the mornings. I can also arrange a special time to meet with a parent outside of Family Time and teach them so that they can assist other morning knitters. Email: isiswhitewitch@gmail.com
