Tyngsborough Elementary School

Update - March 22, 2019

A HUGE thank you to PTO for sponsoring two exciting events this month!


Our visit with Sarah Albee was awesome! The level of engagement and excitement seen in her presentations for students in preschool - grade 5 was incredible to witness. Each year, we are so fortunate to bring such talented authors to our school.


Sarah Albee is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 100 books for kids, ranging from preschool through middle grade. Recent nonfiction titles have been Bank Street College of Education Best Books selections, Notable Social Studies Trade Books, and winners of Eureka! Nonfiction Children’s Book Awards. These days she writes primarily nonfiction, and especially loves writing about topics where history and science connect.

On Tuesday, March 26th, Illstyle & Peace will be here! This high-energy variety-show-style assembly features jaw-dropping contemporary and old school Hip Hop dance moves interspersed with comedic sketches about getting through some of the challenges of school life by respecting peers, respecting teachers, and having the courage to speak out when necessary. In a fun, interactive concert, audiences will see how different skill sets can lead to equally impressive moves on the dance floor.


School Spirit/Field Day T-Shirts

My sincerest apologies for any confusion I may have created with the t-shirt order forms. Please know purchasing these school spirit shirts are optional.


Families are encouraged to pay online through UniBank. All payments can be made under the TES Enrichment Link.

Tyngsborough Health & Safety Fair

Preschool families recently purchased a t-shirt for the upcoming field trip. Kindergarten families recently received order forms for their Kindergarten Celebration t-shirts. In preschool and kindergarten, students are encouraged to wear these shirts on Field Day.


Please know that any student/family member can purchase the Go Tigers shirt shown below. The order forms sent home are designated by homeroom team color for field day.


Please see the attached flyer for the Health and Safety Fair on April 6th from 9am- 1 pm at the Tyngsborough Elementary School. This is a free community event that will offer something for everyone. There will be free health screenings, free Child ID kits, and many fun activities for all ages.

Massachusetts Assistant Principal of the Year - Mrs. Erin Sousa

Today, we found out that this beautiful lady was named Massachusetts Assistant Principal of the Year!

I strongly believe that a school takes on the personality of its leaders and because of Mrs. Sousa’s positive, upbeat, “can do it attitude” our school community has flourished. Her ability to successfully assist in the day to day operations of our large elementary school while ensuring students, staff, and families receive compassion, empathy, and support shines each and every day. Mrs. Sousa consistently goes out of her way to make connections with students. She is often found having lunch in the cafeteria, initiating games at recess, giving high fives or reading to classrooms. In a school of over 800 students, she knows students by name and beyond that, she knows who they are as individuals and learners. Mrs. Sousa’s interactions with everyone she encounters is seen through her endless energy and vibrant smile.

I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this prestigious award! A huge congrats to Mrs. Sousa for being the best of the best!
