Let's Talk TPS
District Communication - October 6, 2021
As we near the end of the first full week of October, we hope that everyone has settled into the school routine and is enjoying the crisp fall weather. Today is Walk to School Wednesday, we hope that many of our students and staff took advantage of the weather and strolled to school today!
Start Strong testing is in its final days and we want to thank our families, students, and staff for their hard work and support. A special shout out to our teachers, principals, and technology staff for helping to make sure that everyone was prepared, in their proper testing place, and that our computers were up and running without issue. Thank you all.
We want to remind everyone that our website is the first place to go for information on all things TPS. Information on schedules, lunch, special events, school policies, and so much more is easily accessible with the click of a button. We have made numerous updates and improvements throughout the site, and we welcome your feedback on both content and ease of use. We welcome your feedback and hope that it helps you to stay up-to-date and informed about all things TPS.
Yours in Education,
Shauna C. DeMarco
Superintendent Tenafly Public School
Happening in Our Schools...
Bravo to all of our students who were seen walking to school today as we kicked off Walking Wednesdays, a program designed to encourage walking (or biking) to school. And, a shoutout to our staff as well, for once again setting a good example, meeting students at various corners throughout the district to walk that final block or two together. We encourage everyone to keep walking the walk to school when weather and time permit.
