Middlebrook Mountain Lions March 10, 2023

Dear Middlebrook Families,

Today is the last day of the 2nd trimester! Time sure is going by fast. Report cards will be posted to the parent portal next Friday. While reviewing your child's progress, please take the time to celebrate successes and help him/her set very specific attainable goals for the last trimester.

During the month of March, we celebrate Women's History Month. Some fun facts about Women's History include: Wyoming Territory was the first place to grant women the right to vote. Elizabeth Blackwell was the first woman to earn a medical degree in the United States, and Aretha Franklin was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Continue to explore at home and share in celebrating amazing women everywhere!

2023-2024 Budget Process

Thank you to the Middlebrook families who attended the Board of Finance meeting last evening to show their support for the budget! There will be two important upcoming opportunities for members of the Trumbull community to share their thoughts regarding the needs of our budget. The first opportunity is Saturday, March 18 at 10 AM in Town Council Chambers. The second opportunity is a virtual meeting on Tuesday, March 28 at 7:00 PM. If you would like to sign up for public comment, we encourage you to do so to share your thoughts. Please see Dr. Semmel's weekly update for more information: https://www.smore.com/8vc5r

You can also view the entire budget and TPS elementary budget presentation by accessing the links below:
