Dear Neighborhood School Families,

It’s at this time each year that the Department of Education (DOE) Parent Survey comes out.  The DOE survey gathers information about your overall satisfaction with our school and the results are published and used to determine our official rating. Completion rates are also important as they reflect the level of parent involvement to the DOE.  Each TNS family needs to complete a survey so that the Chancellor knows that our parents are involved, informed, and are advocates for our children. Each student received a green envelope containing a hard copy of the survey to fill out along with postage-paid envelope. You can also complete the survey online using your access code (in the green envelope).  Thank you!

Our TNS Spring Auction is just two weeks away!  Please join me, TNS families and staff Thursday, March 8 at the Manny Cantor Rooftop (197 East Broadway).  There will be many wonderful items up for bids like summer camp at Elite Gymnastics, ice cream at Van Leeuwen, VIP Family Pack at Lefrak ice skating rink, brunch for 2 at Tribeca Grill and more!  Even if you can’t make the event, you can still get some great deals (and support TNS) at the online auction.  Check it out: http://tnsny.org/auction.  All proceeds go to support our PTA funded programs.

Mark your calendars:

  • The Auction Committee meets Monday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.
