Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

All TAS employees would like to wish all our TAS families a safe and wonderful holiday season. May you spend it with family and friends near or far. Enjoy the break and time with people you care about. We will see you in the new year, 2023.

K-6 Student of the Week

Mrs. Burbach has chosen Henry Weaver as the Newberry Elementary student of the week. He is in Mrs. Burbach's Developmental Kindergarten class. He is the son of Pam Bowler and grandparents of Michelle and Carl. Henry always comes to school prepared and ready to learn. He strives to do his best. He is a great helper in the classroom and always willing to help his peers. Henry is five years old and his favorite part of school is Recess, snack time, legos and Number Corner. His favorite food is hotdogs, pizza and noodles. He enjoys playing outside with his friends. I have seen huge changes in Henry since the beginning of the year and I couldn’t be more proud of him. Congratulations Henry!

All Offices Closed during Christmas Break

All offices (Central, K-6 and 7-12) will be closed starting Thursday, Dec. 22, 2022 until Monday, January 2, 2023. This is the Christmas break for the district. Offices will be open again with the restart of school on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

7-12 Student of the Week

Mrs. Kidd is happy to announce Ethan Stilson as this week's Student of the Week.

Ethan, a member of the Junior class, is the son of Jodi Stilson and David Stilson.

Ethan is always ready with a smile and a friendly greeting. He is a hardworking

student who works diligently to complete his work on time and correctly. He asks

questions, explains his ideas, and contributes to the classroom environment in a

positive way. He is kind, has a great sense of humor, and volunteers to contribute

to meaningful classroom work.

Outside of the classroom, Ethan participates in NHS's Big Brothers and Big Sisters

program, and he plays varsity football. He also participated in this fall's CTE Tech

program, which was in partnership with Alpena Schools.

Ethan's great attitude and contributions to the school and greater community are

truly appreciated. You've earned this, Ethan!
