Tinc Road's Kids Heart Challenge Day (formally known as Jump Rope for Heart/Hoops) is back!! This event will be held outdoors during your child's special time on October 19 for Grades 3-5! The rain date will be October 20th. Since the event is outdoors, please make sure your child dresses in layers that day.

No donation obligation! More information to follow in your Friday Folders!

Tinc Rd. Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

The book fair was so much fun this week and a great success. Huge shout out to Janelle Tricarico for putting this all together and running it every day. Thank you to all the volunteers and to all the students and parents who shopped to support us. The sale continues online until 10/21 and all orders ship direct! Books make great holiday gifts for family and friends! Shop online using this link https://bit.ly/Fall_BookFair_TRS


Trunk or Treat : Please register to decorate OR attend https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4aaba829aaff2-tinc Fred the candy monster is back and is hungry! He is looking for candy or non-candy treats to be used for our trunk or treat. Please send in your donations with your student next week.


On Halloween and Trunk-or-Treat, consider offering non-food items such as glow sticks, stickers, and other toys or prizes in addition to candy to support The Teal Pumpkin Project.


Displaying a sign (see below) or a Teal Pumpkin helps families with food allergies identify that there’s a safe option when Trick-or-Treating. Plus, prizes are fun for all trick-or-treaters, but be sure to place items in a separate container from candy to avoid cross-contamination.


For more information, please visit the Teal Pumpkin Project on the Food Allergy Research and Education website. https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/teal-pumpkin-project


Shop Amazon and support the PTO! Simply log into your account using https://smile.amazon.com/ and select Tinc Road School PTO and a portion of eligible purchases will be donated to us!


As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out to me at trs.pto.pres@gmail.com


Have a great weekend!

President, Tinc Rd PTO
