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.
