TMS Weekly Update 2017-2018

October 6th, 2017

Spirit Week is next week

A little challenge between the grades next week as the students of TMS will engage in Spirit Week. Each day there will be trivia questions over the intercom, dress up theme days, banner contest, a football game on Thursday and a competition on Friday to close the week. What a great way to kick off the fall at TMS!

Fall Dance on October 13th at 6:30

We are taking advantage of this excellent fall weather and having our first dance outside on the 13th from 6:30-9:00. Chaperones and students will enjoy a night of music and dancing with a fall theme. The cost of the dance is $6 and there will be plenty of refreshments to enjoy (at a small cost). Tickets will be on sale during all lunch periods next week, 10/10-10/13. DJ Grossman will be cranking out the tunes!

Registration Update

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Tyngsborough Public Schools is excited to announce PowerSchool Registration, a new online platform for the yearly update of parent and student data including phone numbers, email addresses, emergency contacts, and medical information. This process replaces the paper form that is typically sent home at the beginning of each school year.

In an effort to ensure a smooth rollout, we are first launching the platform for parents and guardians of students at the high school and middle school.

You will soon be receiving an email from powerschool@tyngsboroughps.org with instructions and a link to start the process via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you do not yet have a Parent Portal account, please check your mailbox for a letter sent home early last week which includes instructions for getting your account configured. If your child is entering TMS as a 6th grader this year, please note that the instructions were sent home with them on orientation day.

If you have any questions or run into any issues, please send an email to parentportal@tyngsboroughps.org.

Snacks

Teams have different times established for snacks. A reminder, as a school, we are staying away from snacks that contain nuts, require a long time to eat, or can make a mess.

Halloween is coming!

TMS will have a "Halloween Dress Up Day" on Tuesday, October 31, 2017. For a $1.00 donation, students can dress up in school-appropriate Halloween attire for the day (following the specific guidelines outlined below). All proceeds will benefit the Adopt-a-Family program.

GUIDELINES FOR THE DAY:

- Costumes may not have parts that interfere with learning. (No masks or costumes that restrict movement, or vision or prevent sitting at desks or are an obstruction in the hallways).

- Costumes may not promote violence or have accessories or props that could be used as a weapon.

- Absolutely NO clown costumes will be allowed!

- Please do not bring food or candy into school this day.

- This is still a school day. Students are expected to fully participate in class throughout the day.
