Please consider joining our Tiogue PTA! Our NEXT PTA MEETING IS SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19th AT 6:30pm. Membership numbers are very low for this time of the year. It is never too late to join!

Our PTA helps to organize most of our special events at the school and handles the fundraising for items and programs that do not come from our District budget. For example, our PTA helped to pay for our field trip buses on Friday, paid for our new walkie-talkies (part of our safety plan initiative), and also helps to fund our school assemblies this year.

Fire Prevention Assembly - Kindergarten through Second Grade

Our thanks go out to our local Fire Dept., especially Fire Fighter Steven Mann, for helping to organize and present to our students.

What's Happening at Tiogue Elementary School, Home of the Timberwolves

Our PBIS, All School Assembly, was held on Monday, October 22nd. The R.O.A.R. Show was a huge success; the students and faculty & staff learned about respect, responsibility and how to look out for others. Our presenter, Al "the Respect Guy", flew all the way from Hawaii to visits schools in New England. Our thanks to our P.B.I.S. Committee at Tiogue, especially Mrs. Koski and Dr. Raptakis, for finding an amazing show for all of us.

There are pictures shown below.
