Tyngsborough Elementary School

Update 4/30/18

MCAS is well underway and we have approached the busy time of our school year! Please review the end of the year dates below.


Transition Meetings for Grade 5 Families

Mr. Pollet, TMS Principal and the staff at TMS have coordinated several transition events for our 5th grade families.

Monday, May 21 - Grade 5 Parent Info Night re:Camp Bournedale) @ 6:00 (TES CAFE)

Thursday, May 31 - Grade 5 Parent Info Night @ 6:00 (TMS Theatre)

Monday, June 25 - Grade 5 Student Visit to TMS


Parent Portal Information

On Friday, May 4th progress reports will be sent home for students in kindergarten - grade 5 . In addition to your child's progress report, a letter will be enclosed regarding access to the Parent Portal through our student management system Power School (preschool families will receive this letter as well). For those of you who have children at TMS and THS, you will already have access to this and will be familiar with it. For families that already have access to the Parent Portal, you will only need to add your child(ren) that currently attends TES, For those of you that do not have children on the other campus, we would ask that you go through the entire process of setting up your accounts at this time. The letter will outline exactly how to do so.


This school year families will only have access to student attendance. Grades will not be accessible on the portal this school year. During the 2018-19 school year, families will have access to both attendance and grades (progress report/report card grades only). Our hope is to get families signed up now in an effort to have a seamless transition to the portal in the fall.


There will be more information that the Technology Department will send out in August via email regarding updating student information (emergency form and other documents) for the 2018-19 school year as well. If you should have any questions, please email parentportal@tyngsboroughps.org.
