Tyngsborough Elementary School

January 10, 2022 UPDATE

With the holidays behind us, we’re all getting back to our regular schedules and activities. Whatever your traditions and celebrations, we hope you were able to have a happy and restful break. Unfortunately, the pandemic didn’t pause for our festivities. The Omicron variant has created yet another surge in cases. We truly appreciate your ongoing support, patience, and understanding over the coming weeks. We hope that this surge will be brief.

Congratulations to Mrs. Vincent

Before break, we celebrated the retirement of Mrs. Vincent. 34 amazing years, all in grade 3. Her smile, undeniable laugh, positivity, and heart of gold will be missed!!! Our students and staff gave her a special send off! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlTxSJAYP0U


Don't Forget to Show Your STRIPES!

Reestablishing and reteaching routines after winter break can help anchor students as they learn and grow. Staff will spend time providing reminders for showing their STRIPES in the classroom, hallways, at lunch and recess, and when riding the bus. Families are encouraged to discuss our important core values when talking to their child(ren) about school.
