A message from Mrs. True
Happy Friday Wildcat Community,
This will be the final installment of the Wildcat Weekly Newsletter for the 18-19 school year. The final student day of school is field day on Monday, June 17th. It is a half day of school. Dismissal will be at 12:30pm. We will be running a bus to Camp Beech Cliff at dismissal to deliver any students who are planning to attend CBC for the remainder of Monday afternoon. Harbor House plans to send buses to pick up students on the last day as well. We look forward to the opportunity to say our goodbyes to students and wish them a wonderful, adventure filled summer on that day. One of our favorite tearful traditions is all teachers and staff standing in front of the school to wave goodbye when buses leave the school.
As we close out the school year, Mrs. Rabasca would like to recognize Tremont Consolidated School middle school students, as they have made tremendous gains in reading. This year, students in grades 6-8 read over 1000 books!!! In order to maintain skills and momentum, students currently in grades 6-7 are required to read at least three books this summer. They also have to opportunity to participate in the 2019 Bass Harbor Memorial Library Summer Reading Program. This week, students received new books of their choice purchased by the generous Tremont PTO. They also had the opportunity to borrow books from classroom libraries. Please use the Bass Harbor and Southwest Harbor Libraries, as well. They are great resources. Students will write reviews of a summer reading book when they return to school in September. This review will be one assessment used to measure their progress and performance in reading. Students should come back to school in September well rested and well read!
As this is the last week of school, it is important that we say THANK YOU to so many people. Thank you teachers, support staff, bus drivers, kitchen staff, volunteers, school committee members, selectmen, Tremont family and community members for all you have done to make this another successful year!
We are sad to say farewell to Mrs. Christianson as a teacher at TCS; however, she will remain a Tremont Wildcat always. Thank you Mrs. C for so many years of dedication to our students. You will be missed next year, but we look forward to having you visit! Just last night, the school board voted to approve Caroline Fournier as next year’s 2nd grade teacher. We are excited to welcome her to our school family.
Writing the final newsletter each year is bittersweet. It brings a sense of accomplishment and pride, as we look at how much progress students across grade levels have made. However, there is also a sense of loss as our 8th graders transition to MDIHS, and K-4 students transition to new teachers and new learning. From all of us at Tremont Consolidated School, THANK YOU for supporting us and for all you do for the children of Tremont. We look forward to partnering with families again in the fall. The first day of school for the 19-20 school year will be Thursday, August 29, 2019. Have a wonderful summer with your incredible children.
Your Tremont Consolidated School Family
