What's Happening!

Projects in Engineering students have been hard at work creating a Rube Goldberg machine to make ice cream sundaes. Each piece of the machine had to meet certain specifications and requirements. Sophomores in ELA have been studying transcendentalism and will be traveling to Walden Pond next week to make connections to Thoreau's famous writing Walden Pond. Also this week members of the senior class have been busy meeting with college representatives. Representatives from Umass-Lowell, Westfield State, Framingham State, Boston University, Alabama, Saint Michaels, UMaine and Middlesex Community College all presented to interested seniors on what their school has to offer.

Have a great long weekend!

The school counseling department will be hosting College Question and Answer meetings for senior parents/guardians on October 12th, November 9th, and December 7th at 8:00 a.m. This is a great time to learn about the college application process.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application is now available to complete. This application can be found at fafsa.gov. The FAFSA is the most important application in the financial aid process. All colleges and universities will require the FAFSA before determining a financial aid award. Colleges may also require students to complete a CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE (profileonline.collegeboard.org) and/or a college specific financial aid application. It is important to be aware of each college's financial aid deadlines - missing deadlines could result in missing out on financial aid. For more information on the financial aid process please visit mefa.org.

FAFSA Day Massachusetts is a non-profit, volunteer driven program providing free assistance to students and families seeking to complete the FAFSA. These events will be taking place in high schools, colleges, and libraries across the Commonwealth and will provide one-on-one, step-by-step assistance for families completing the FAFSA. Please visit FAFSADay.org or email fafsaday@gmail.com for more information.

THS Travel Information Night 10/11/17

THS has had great success with our travel programs over the years. Last year students enjoyed amazing experiences in Belize and Italy, while upcoming trips are scheduled for London/Paris and a service trip to Give Kids the World Village in Florida. 2019 travel opportunities are open to students in the classes of 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Due to the high volume of requests we have been unable to accommodate all our students who desire to participate. To make sure that all have an equal opportunity to travel sign-ups will be open at our information night and it is a first come first serve system.

Our travel night this fall will be the first look at trips for 2019. Students and parents are encouraged to attend. There will be opportunities to sign-up at reduced costs on this night. Please contact Kate Ramsay at Katherine.Ramsay@tyngsboroughps.org if you have any questions.

Emergency Forms

As a reminder all students must have information updated through Powerschool. This includes phone numbers, email addresses, emergency contacts, and medical information. This process replaces the paper forms that are typically sent home at the beginning of the year. If you have not updated this information, please do so as soon as possible. If this form is not completed, your child will not be able to take over the counter medications from the nurse as well as not be able to attend any upcoming field trips. We hope this is not the case. Thank you to those who have already completed this process.
