2019-2020 Preschool & Kindergarten Registration Information

As many of you may know, Tyngsborough Public Schools is hopeful that we will be able to open the doors at the beginning of the 2019-2020 School Year offering free Full Day Kindergarten. In an effort to be transparent and share all of the research, data, and facts, we have added information to our school webpage. We hope that you find this information helpful, but as always do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Message from Student Council

Student Council will be hosting their annual estimation jar fundraiser from Friday February 8th through Thursday February 14th. To make it even more fun, this year they will be having 3 estimation jars filled with either candy or pennies, with each attached to a stuffed animal! During their lunch period, students can look at the jars and buy 1 guess for 25 cents or buy 5 guesses for $1.00. There is no limit on the number of guesses students can buy! The student’s guess closest to the number of items, in each jar, will win the jar and the stuffed animal! Winners will be announced on the TES morning news on Friday February 15th.


Student Council members voted to donate all money raised to the MSPCA, a Massachusetts organization which works to protect and prevent cruelty to animals. Remind your student(s) to bring in their money starting on Friday!
