Dear TTCS community:
It is springtime in the school year. With 6 weeks to go we continue with STATE mandated testing, end of year field trips, and special events. Once again, please pay attention to the school calendar on our website so that you don’t miss any of your child’s special activities.
I hope you can join us for the annual “Culture Fair” on April 27th. All classrooms are involved and a lot of work is going into this school-wide event. It is amazing to see what students and teachers do to explore and learn about other cultures.
Next year there will be changes in teacher assignments (grade levels and types of teaching positions) and it is also time to announce to our community those teachers who are moving on to new and exciting opportunities.
Here is the list of changes:
PreK Sonja Jacobs
1st grade Amy Oler
2nd Grade- Tami Crow will leave 2nd grade and work as a Special Education Case Manager.
3rd grade Shauna Griffin
4th grade Diane Conboy
5th grade Sarah Thomas has agreed to rejoin our 5th grade team next year.
I am excited for the new challenges awaiting these teachers as they begin to meet with new grade level team members, plan for next year, and get ready for a new grade level.
Additionally, we have teachers not returning to TTCS as they have made plans for next year to teach in other countries, attend graduate school and/or seek opportunities in other professions.
Teachers not returning:
Mia Goldman (5th) Simon Dobson (special Education), Katie Doherty (5th), Russell Ray (pk), Cheryl Jurewich (4th), and Kendall Perez (reading specialist) will all be greatly missed next year. Please take the time to let these teachers know how much our students have benefited from their excellent work at TTCS.
We have active searches underway and we will be announcing several new teachers in the next few weeks. The first new hire to announce is:
Hayley Griffin (No we are not related) who will be our new K teacher next year. She has been a student-teacher in our K program this year and we are very impressed with her teaching talent, professionalism and her collegiality with our current K team. Welcome to TTCS Ms. Griffin.
