OUR TIOGUE PTA NEEDS YOU
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.

Monthly Attendance Challenge
The RI Dept. of Education takes into account our attendance totals for students, teachers and staff. These totals will now effect our "rating" or "ranking" in the state. Let's keep up the great work, everyone. Our goal is to reduce Chronic & All Absences this year!
