Let's Talk TPS
September 14, 2022
Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year
The excitement that comes with the start of a new school year hangs in the air! It was wonderful to see our classrooms and offices filled with activity on Opening Day 2022. Students and staff definitely brought the sunshine on an otherwise rainy day.
A special shout out and thank you to our year-round staff who worked tirelessly over the summer to ensure that the start of the school year was as clean and smooth as possible. We appreciate all that you do!
Based on your feedback, Let's Talk TPS will be moving to a bimonthly distribution. Our newsletter will still be sent mid-week and contain news from around and within all of our schools. We hope that this meets everyone's needs.
On a personal note, I want to thank everyone who reached out to wish me and Dr. Mamman well as we each prepare to move on to our next adventure. Dr. Mamman will be with us through mid-October and I will be here until December 1, 2022. We remain committed to the forward progress of the district throughout our remaining time in Tenafly so that the transition to a new administration is as smooth as possible. Thank you for your continued support.
Yours in Education,
Shauna C. DeMarco
Superintendent Tenafly Public Schools

We have worked hard to ensure that events do not overlap so that you can attend each of your student(s)'s events without another school event conflict! The calendar is updated regularly and you can customize it to see just those events that you wish to see! Want to integrate the district or school calendar with your personal calendar? Directions for that are also on the website! Don't see something that you think should be there or something looks amiss? email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome Back Teachers and Staff
Thank You For Lending a Hand
Please follow the car line drop off and pick up procedures for each school, and we ask for your patience as our new families learn the process. We encourage parents and students to leave with extra time and ask you to discuss with your children the importance of using sidewalks, staying away from work areas, and following the directions of adults.
SAVE THE DATE: In-Person Back-to-School Nights
Mark your calendars for this year's Back-to-School Nights! These events will be held in-person at all school levels. Additional details will be available on the district website calendars and will be sent directly to parents from their respective schools.
TMS Students Share Their Talents at Mid-Autumn Festival
Students from Tenafly Middle School shared their knowledge, talents, and creativity with the Tenafly Community at the Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration held on Saturday, September 10th. Hosted by the Chinese Parents Association of Tenafly, the event included a traditional fan dance, music, and the telling of "Rabbit with the Moon" by our TMS Chinese Language Class.
THS Peer Leaders are Bee-yond Amazing
During the THS Senior Peer Leader Retreat, our student peer leaders decorated empty or outdated bulletin boards around the school, adding to the already welcoming feeling at THS. Well done!
