Dyanthe’s Weekly Letter

Dear Families,

Part of our work this year is building and strengthening our school community and wanting to hear new voices and ways of thinking forward.  Historically,  TNS Committees, made up of staff and parents, were core structures in our school.  They moved us along in our work as a small, progressive, and fiercely independent school within a much larger system.  They included the Diversity Committee, the Advocacy Committee, the Grants Committee, the Garden Committee, the Wellness Committee, and the Health and Safety Committee, to name a few.  Some of these were in response to issues facing TNS that particular year; others are long-lasting because the work is continuous and ever-evolving.   While some of these committees are still active, others must be revived and reimagined post-COVID.  

We will revisit our committee work at our next PTA meeting on Tuesday, December 13, at 6:30 p.m.  I invite you to bring your ideas to share.  I am excited to expand and grow our work to better our community.  Here’s the meeting link:  https://bit.ly/TNSPTAmeeting.

Why should you complete an Emergency Contact form for your child? Because if you’re late picking up your child, someone else can.  Because if your child gets sick at school and we can’t reach you, another person you trust is contacted instead, and your child doesn’t have to remain sick at school.  Because if there is a building-wide emergency, like a lockdown or evacuation, we can reach you or someone you trust and share critical information.  

Please complete your child’s  Emergency Contact Form today.
