Attention Parents! Please plan to come to the parent coffee next Monday at 6PM in the library. We will have a very important presentation about how to manage our children’s use of the internet and social media. Yes, this is elementary school, but many students, particularly in grades 3-5, already have devices on which they can text peers and use the internet. The school counselors have already had conversations with students this year about bullying and social interactions that stem from social media use outside of school. Please come hear this important information so we can all work together to help our students navigate technology use. Hope to see you there!
Our traditional Veteran’s Day Assemblies will be held this year on Monday, November 12th at 8:15 (grades K-2) and 9:45 (grades 3-5).

If you have any questions about the assembly, please contact Mrs. Ozmore.
Fifth grade parents!
The IB open house at Tuckahoe MS on October 23rd is designed for parents and students alike to attend. There are two identical hour-long sessions (5:00-6:00 and 6:00-7:00) that give families a choice that works with their schedule that evening. Each session kicks off in the gym to provide a brief overview of the ins and outs of the program, then TMS IB students and teachers have curated a showcase of IB experiences in the adjacent cafeteria, and more student ambassadors will be available to give tours of the campus.
If your child is considering applying to IB, this is a night you won’t want to miss!
