Thank you Holiday Fair 2017

Dear TNS Families,


Thank you so much for donating and volunteering your time and your thoughtfulness with our school’s yearly Holiday Fair.  With your help we raised $10,000.00 this year.
THIS IS AMAZING!


When you hear “please come volunteer” look at it as being a part of your child’s education.  
You are doing something no matter how big or small in your child’s school to give.  
And when you do volunteer, talk about it at home, let them know it is work and work gives them things.  Many children know you leave to go to work - but a couple of hours seeing you invest your adult time gives them an understanding that you are accomplishing something and that is money in the bank.

When you hear the word “volunteer” it is not the end- it is an opening to new experiences and ‘working’ with wonderful people and you will be surprised what great families/friends you will make.

Thank you all for everything you do!

Happy New Year to 2018!

Best wishes,
~Lorraine Hutra

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

We work hard to provide a safe and successful learning environment at TNS, and that begins the minute children enter school.  In the morning, students and families may use any “up” stairwell to go their classroom, however unaccompanied children must stay in the small cafeteria until 8:23 AM and “Teddy’s Space” is always closed before school.  

Students will participate in the Garden to Cafe tasting Tuesday!  During lunchtime, they will have the opportunity to try roasted acorn squash with mint, red cabbage coleslaw with shallots and apples, fresh crispin, Jonagold apples and Comice pears.  Yum!

Mark Your Calendar:

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

  • Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grades will have their dance shares Tuesday in the auditorium:

8:25 Joanne and Sofia

9:10 Catlin and Caroline

9:55 Grace

10:40 Alexis and Corinthia

11:35 Hannah

  • SING is Wednesday at 8:45AM in the auditorium.  Please also join us for the bake sale in the lobby beforehand (also, this is a call for donated baked goods).

  • Our PTA meeting is Thursday at 8:35AM in the PTA Room.

I hope that you have a wonderful and well-deserved break with plenty of opportunities to laugh, play and relax with family and friends.  We will see you Tuesday, January 2, 2018!

Warmly,

Dyanthe

Week of December 11, 2017

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

A huge thank you to the organizers, volunteers and families who supported our Holiday Fair!   As always, I am overwhelmed by the generosity of those who donated their time, food, talents and positive energy to make this event so successful.  Thank you!

Did you know that thanks to our Grants Committee and some dedicated parents, we have a climbing wall in our 4th floor gym?  We were also just awarded the Whole Kids Foundation Honey Bee Grant and will have an indoor observation hive in Emily’s science room soon.  These exciting projects were made possible thanks to our amazing Grants Committee.  Want to learn more and share your ideas for TNS?  The Grants Committee meets this Thursday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

Mark Your Calendars:

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

  • The PTA Exec Board meets Wednesday at drop-off in the PTA Room.

  • The Garden Committee meets Friday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

Have a great week,

Dyanthe
