Dyanthe’s Weekly Letters

Week of February 6, 2017

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

At TNS, we believe that children learn best through first-hand experiences with people, materials and places; that is why trips are such an important part of our school’s curriculum.  Some trips, like ice skating may not be so much about content learning, but about giving children opportunities to have different kinds of life experiences.  Many of our children learn to ice skate by going on these trips twice each year.

Similarly, every year our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders go to camp for three days and two nights: our 3rd graders go to Camp Speers Eljabar YMCA and our 4th/5th graders go to Camp Ashokan.  We expect all of our students to go camp.  These camping trips are an essential part a student’s TNS experience and reflect the values of our mission.  Our 4th and 5th graders are going to camp this week!  Please reach out to your child’s teacher, me or Noemi if you have any questions about your child participating in this trip.

Mark your calendars:

  • The Advocacy Committee will meet on Monday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • Narrative Reports go home Monday.

  • The Grants Committee will meet on Tuesday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • Erin, Wanda, Shaniqua & Lindsey, Sofia & Joanne, Alexis & Corinthia, and Hannah’s classes will go ice skating at Prospect Park Tuesday.

  • 4th and 5th grades go to Camp Ashokan Wednesday - Friday.

  • Parent’s of Unique Kids Support Group meets this Wednesday morning at drop-off in Room 301.  This is a support group for parents and caretakers; it is an opportunity to share experiences, defeats, and strategies with each other.  Kindergarten teacher, Dianne will lead the group as a fellow parent.  

  • The PTA Executive Meeting is Thursday at 8:30 a.m. in the PTA Room.  All are welcome.

I will be going to Camp Ashokan with our 4th and 5th graders Wednesday and Thursday.  I will be back at school Friday morning.

Have a great week,
