Terrapin Tuesday

Tuesday, October 17, 2022

Superintendent's Update

Red Ribbon Week is coming up next Monday. The purpose of this week is to celebrate healthy and safe decisions and encourage students to live a drug-free lifestyle. Tuckerton Elementary supports a substance free lifestyle and prevention of substance abuse in our school and community. Lessons are aligned to our students' age/grade level with the core understanding that alcohol, tobacco, and drugs (including over the counter) can be harmful to one's heath when used in unsafe ways.

Parent-Teacher Conference signs ups will posted by your child's teacher using Parent Square. Wednesday 11/2 & Thursday 11/3 are evening conferences from 6:00 - 8:00pm and Friday will be afternoon conferences 12:45 - 2:30pm. Appointment times are 10 minutes each, so please be mindful when scheduling appointments for multiple teachers that you give a few minutes of travel time from one class to another.

Free & Reduced Online Application

ALL families should complete an application.

All families (regardless of eligibility) are asked to complete and submit lunch applications for the new school year. Click the above link or access it on our TES website. Our state funding is tied to the number of lunch applications submitted so we are striving for 100% of families completing the application. Families will receive a letter from the district when their eligibility has been determined.
