Vision of a Graduate

As Dr. Iwanicki communicated in her parent letter during the first trimester of school, Trumbull Public Schools is committed to fostering and supporting the TPS Vision of the Graduate. Please use the following link to review this prior communication: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zhcwMKOldbKndTZWu8zpGbBeTI_2RjL26QCbRex1do8/edit

Our Vision of The Graduate mission states, “Trumbull Public Schools, in partnership with the community, strives to meet the educational needs of all students within a challenging and supportive academic environment that empowers each student to become a life-long learner and to live and participate in a democratic, diverse and global society.” With this in mind, Trumbull Public Schools believes in a shared, collaboratively created vision of success for all students in our district. We work throughout the year to ensure all instruction is in service of supporting students to achieve a shared vision of knowledge and skills.

This year, our teachers across the district are piloting the rubric for the skill, Communication, and the reflection form for the disposition, Growth Mindset in grades Kindergarten through 12. Please use the following link to learn more about how Middlebrook students have been engaging in these practices.



Students in grade 3 and 5 will be taking the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) in February. This test it is is designed to assess a child’s performance across a wide variety of reasoning skillsets. As always, it is important for your children to be prepared and ready for learning each day so they can put forth their best effort. Healthy habits of eating, sleeping and getting plenty of rest allow ALL of us to perform at our highest level.


Warm Clothing for Recess:

Please be sure your child comes to school with a warm jacket or coat, hat, and gloves. We try to get our students outside, even in the cold weather, so it is important that they are dressed properly.
