Week of November 26, 2018

Dear Families,

One of our most festive fundraisers of the year, the Holiday Fair is quickly approaching.  It is an event for the whole family and makes a great playdate!  There are many ways to participate and support our school. Please look for opportunities to volunteer... to set up, work a booth the day of, or clean-up.  And of course, I hope you will join in the fun, too.  This year’s Holiday Fair is Sunday, December 16th!

Join our coat drive!  You can “leave a coat, take a coat,” as needed.  Starting Monday, bring your gently used (but clean) coats -  on hangers, if possible - and drop them off on the coat rack near the sign-in desk.  We are asking for coats for men, women, children and teens! Other winter gear will also be accepted - especially snow pants.  Thank you!

Mark Your Calendars:

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

  • Thursday is Picture Day for Sibs, retakes and make-ups.

  • Parents of Unique Kids Support Group meets Thursday at 4:30 PM.  This is a support group for parents and caretakers; it is an opportunity to share experiences, challenges and strategies with each other.

  • Friday is the deadline for submitting Middle School Applications to Noemi.  


Have a wonderful week,

Dear Families,

Fall Family Celebration is one of my favorite TNS traditions because it always reminds me how warm and caring our community is, and the importance of food in bringing people together.  I am very thankful to be a part of TNS.

Mark Your Calendars:

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

  • There is no school Thursday and Friday this week.

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.

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

It’s family conference week.  Twice each year, in November and again in March, we hold family conferences.  In our early childhood classes, it is 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.  In our upper grades, children lead conferences, speaking about their work alongside teachers and their adults. Conferences will be held Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon (dismissal is at 11:45 AM).

Please stop by the Library Open House before or after your conference to learn more about the library resources available to you and your child:

  • Audiobooks (families can borrow a license to Tales2Go, our audiobook service)

  • Makerspace/Maker station table

  • Parent Resources

  • Dewey Shelving Game

  • Take a “Selfie with a Book”

  • Snacks

Friday is Fall Family Celebration!  Classes schedule celebrations at various times during the day so that families with siblings in different classes can participate in all celebrations.

  • We have our PTA General Meeting Thursday at 8:40 AM in the PTA Room.

  • THURSDAY IS A HALF-DAY for family conferences.  Dismissal is at 11:45 AM.

Pest update:  Over the long weekend, custodial staff continued to seal cracks and holes in classrooms, offices, hallways and any other area that needs closing.  

It finally feels like Fall.  Please make sure your child has all the necessary accessories (hat, scarf, mittens and coat) to stay warm and active; it’s important children come to school prepared to play outside as temperatures drop.   Missing something? Check our “Lost and Found” next to security.
