TMS Weekly Update 2018-2019

September 7th, 2018

Three, Four and Five

With the weather as it was over the past two weeks, starting with a three day and now a four day week has helped us survive. Credit goes to the students and teachers for "weathering" the first days of school. Thank you to all!

Open House

TMS Open House is scheduled for Thursday, September 13, 2018 from 6:00-8:00pm. This is a great opportunity to meet your child(ren)’s teacher(s) and find out the curriculum planned for this school year. We do a whole team presentation, visit classrooms, and see the Unified Arts teachers. It is not a night for conferences but rather to enjoy your child's school.

Student Information Form


This is a reminder that Tyngsborough Public Schools is now collecting yearly information updates through an online Student Information Form. Most of the information on this form is pre-populated with what we currently have on file. Please review and make changes where necessary. If you have multiple children, you will receive a separate email for each.


This form is now past due.


Please note that failure to complete this form may result in your child not receiving over the counter medications from the school nurse and will affect their ability to attend field trips.

Mr. Maslanka heads up the trip and you can find more information on his BLOG. Financial assistance is available, contact christopher.pollet@tyngsboroughps.org
