Good Afternoon Wildcat Families,
With a snow day on Friday, and short week this week, we are sending out one newsletter to capture both weeks. There is NO SCHOOL for students this Friday, 2/14. There is an AOS #91 professional development day. Additionally, next week, 2/17-2/21 all AOS #91 schools are closed for the February break.
This year’s ice fishing derby was a great success. Once again, people from MDI and beyond filled the Tremont gym for the weigh in, dinner, and the raffle prizes. Many of the same people contribute tirelessly to this event including: Mike and Sue Hodgdon, Katrina Linscott, Susan McIsaac and the PTO volunteers. Thank you to the 8th grade class and parents for their support. Mrs. Linscott will be reaching out about additional fundraising to students and families who have not yet met their fundraising responsibilities for this year’s class trip in June. Please be on the look out for that communication.
Mrs. Mahoney wants to remind all families about the birthday book program. For your child’s birthday, you can purchase a book in their honor to add to our library collection. A dedication will be placed in the front of the book recognizing your child and your child will be the first person to check their book out of the library. Any families wanting to make this happen, but unable to make this work financially, can confidentially reach out to Mrs. Mahoney and thanks to the generosity of the Tremont School Fund Grant, your child can receive a birthday book. Mrs. Mahoney can be reached at email@example.com.
We are continuing to actively search to fill the long term substitute position for middle school math. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we tackle this challenge optimistically. With every challenge and change such as this, comes opportunity for us to find another dynamic teacher to support students. Ms. Clark will continue, with my support, to provide instruction in the meantime with the support of others such as Ms. Robbins, myself, and Mrs. Beal. Parent communications to or from Ms. Clark would be best to take place through me so that she and I can navigate things together. I have spent a lot of time in the various 5-8 math classes, helping, observing, talking with students and listening. Students have shared thoughts with me and asked questions. Should you have any thoughts or questions, please know I’m also available to you.
Cross your fingers that the snow on Thursday goes elsewhere so that we can have a normal day of school.
Thank you so much for constant support and collaboration with your child’s education. It is energy very well spent! We appreciate you!
