Principal's Message

It is hard to believe that my first year at Thalberg is almost over. The year has been filled with so many exciting events and accomplishments from our young learners. I have truly enjoyed getting to know the Thalberg community, especially our students. They have made me smile each and every day.


I want to take a minute to thank the Thalberg PTO for their many contributions this year. They have provided the children with exciting cultural arts assemblies, amazing book fairs, countless volunteers for so many events and lots of extra goodies for our students and staff.


Our students have grown in so many ways this year. They have matured socially, become more independent and they have learned a little more about being part of a school community. They strive to be their best each and every day. For that, I am so proud of them all.


I wish all of our outgoing fifth graders the very best as they continue their journey onto middle school. They will be missed but I know they are ready to move on.


Have a wonderful summer making memories with family and friends.


Sincerely,

Mrs. Katie Reeves

Miss Baer's Music Corner

Students in Miss Baer’s Music classes are…

· Kindergarten students are expanding their repertoire of songs. They have become good singers and can now sing more difficult songs.

· First grade students mastered reading and writing grade level rhythmic and melodic patterns. They are enjoying listening to the music for Peter and the Wolf.

· Second graders enjoyed singing, “This Land Is Your Land”. They mastered reading and writing grade level rhythmic and melodic patterns. They are ready for third grade recorder playing.

· Third graders will be playing their recorders for second graders in June.

· Fourth graders composed with Low Sol and 16th note rhythms then played their pieces on Xylophones.

· Fifth graders composed with Low La, Low Sol and syncopated rhythms then played their pieces on Xylophones.

Look for your child’s music worksheets that are being sent home. Best wishes to fifth graders as you go on to Middle School. Have a wonderful summer.

Sincerely,

Miss Baer

Medication Pick-Up on the Last Day of School


If your child has medication in school, please plan to pick up your child’s medication(s) by 1:30pm on June 13, 2018 or it will be destroyed. If this is a controlled medication, we will contact an agent of the Department of Consumer Protection/Drug Control Office to collect and destroy this medication if it is not picked up before the end of the last day of school.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Middle School and High School Sports Participation


Sports Physicals - Students Grades 6 to 12 – Every student trying out and participating on a school sport team must submit a completed physical examination form (Health Assessment Record). The State of CT Department of Education Health Assessment Record is the Southington Sports Physical form as well. The sports physical is valid for thirteen (13) months. You may wish to plan ahead to schedule your child’s physical to coincide with any necessary sports physical for that school year.

The front side of the Health Assessment Record must be filled out and signed by a parent/legal guardian.

The doctor must complete and sign the physical examination page of Health Assessment Record. These forms are available in the health offices and online at: https://www.southingtonschools.org/district-departments/health-services/health-forms

All athletes interested in participating in sports at a middle school or at the high school must register online at www.familyid.com

Governor's Reading Challenge 2019

Ahhh Summer… Swimming, Summer Camp, Barbecues and Vacations…this year, why not make sharing books part of your family’s summer fun?

Children of all ages need to be read to or read independently during the summer months. Reading and talking to your child about books helps to develop important language skills while incorporating understandings about books and print, and knowledge about how stories are constructed. Reading throughout the summer and engaging in book discussions will help to maintain reading skills, improve reading fluency, and enable a child to learn new vocabulary and concepts.

Summer reading is an important way to prevent kids from losing too much ground over the summer — research shows that summer reading can make a significant difference in a student's overall academic achievement, particularly when he/she begins a new school year in the fall.

By encouraging your children to engage in summer reading, you will help them find lots of fun ways to use reading throughout the summer while keeping their reading skills in good shape!

Most importantly, when parents and children enjoy summer reading together, children develop a love of books and reading that lasts a lifetime.

Happy Reading!
