Week of October 28, 2019

Dear Families,

Over the past year, families and staff have engaged in conversations about reading instruction at TNS.  Please come to hear author and former TNS parent Maria Russo discuss her new book, “How to Raise a Reader” TONIGHT from 6 - 7:30 PM.  Divided into four sections, from baby through teen, this book offers something useful on every page, whether it’s how to develop rituals around reading or build a family library, or engage a reluctant reader.  A fifth section, More Books to Love: By Theme and Reading Level, is chock full of expert recommendations.  Throughout, the authors debunk common myths, assuage parental fears, and deliver invaluable lessons in a positive and easy-to-act-on way.  I hope you will join me for what promises to be an informative and engaging night. Childcare will be provided.

Also happening this week at TNS…

Families will get a code specifically for their child and they can go to the Cool for School website to order their child’s pictures.  November 22 is saved for sibling pictures and make-ups.

  • Our Halloween Party is Thursday, October 31st beginning at 5:30 PM in the 4th Street courtyard.   Please remember to save candy and costumes for the parade!   

  • The Advocacy Committee meets Friday after drop-off in the PTA room.

  • It’s “Popcorn Friday” this week!

Looking Ahead…

  • There is NO SCHOOL for students on Tuesday, November 5.

Finally, please do not leave strollers in the Lobby during the day.  They block access to scooters, the safety agents’ area and most importantly, pose a fire hazard.  Thank you.
