TNS Donation Disbursement 2014-15

Hello TNS Families

It’s that time of year where we give thanks and spend time with our friends and family, and we are so grateful to have a wonderful school and so many programs that are offered to our children.  Many of you have been asking, where your donation goes to when you donate to the PTA.  A graph was created by one of our many creative parents to show what the PTA pays for this school year.

So please don’t forget to contribute to the PTA  if you haven’t done so this year.

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

Children learn by making sense of their world and their experiences.  Dramatizations and simulations are one way for children to recreate the themes and concepts they are studying.  A wonderful example of this is happening in our school today:  Elections may be over, but not at TNS!  The 4th and 5th grade classes have been studying government and learning about how decisions are made in our government.  Today, they are running a school-wide election for all students (and only students) to determine whether students can participate on the TNS Recess Committees.  Our Recess Committees are currently made up of the adults who work in the school, but many people in the school think that, since students are the ones who play at recess, there should be students on the Recess Committees.  Today, students will have a chance to make their voices heard through the voting process.  

We have a wonderful new event happening each Tuesday morning after drop off for the siblings (and future TNS students):  our local librarian (and TNS parent), Thea will host a story time in the Library for little brothers and sisters Tuesday mornings from 8:30 - 9am.  

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!

  • School Pictures are next week:  December 1, 2 and 3rd.  You can request a picture form from Noemi, if you need one.

  • Valerie, our Pre-K social worker and Noemi are hosting a parent workshop on Monday, December 8th at 8:40 in the PTA room.  Join us to discuss how to maintain balance and manage family time during the holiday season.  

Whatever family traditions you honor this weekend, enjoy the long and very well deserved break with your children.  I hope that it feels restful and rejuvenating.

Week of November 17, 2014

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

This is the time of year that we once again begin school tours for prospective families.  As you may recall, our 5th grade students lead tours (they even have badges this year!) and answer questions both during the tour and at the end, when we convene for Q & A.  Current NS parents also join our 5th grade tour guides and are at the Q&A with Noemi and me, following the tour.  I love our tours; I love hearing our 5th graders and current parents talk about what makes our school community so special.  I am convinced that families who visit TNS will be impressed by our students, parents and the school community.  Please speak with Noemi if you would like to be a part of our school tours in the future.

Please join us for our November PTA meeting on Thursday, November 20 at 8:40am.  Emily, our science teacher will discuss the science curriculum.  I will also share the Progressive Redesign Opportunity Schools for Excellence (PROSE) work happening at TNS this year.

The School Leadership Team (SLT) will meet Thursday, from 5:30 - 7pm in the TNS office.  We will spend some time working on the CEP (Comprehensive Education Plan) for this year.  CEP goal-setting is done in collaboration with the school community to support student achievement and the implementation of school-wide goals.  CEP goals are generally intended to guide school-wide planning and development.

Friday is Fall Family Celebration!  Classes schedule celebrations at various times during the day.  Please check with your child’s teacher(s) about location.  Here is the schedule:

Judy/Rochelle 11:45 - 1pm
