A message from Mrs. True
Dear Tremont School Community,
Today, Thursday, is the end of this school week for students. On Friday, students will begin February Vacation while teachers attend professional development opportunities with colleagues from across MDIRSS. Vacation week is February 18 - 22. We will look forward to returning to school with students on Monday, February 25th.
Although this was a short week, it allowed enough time for the Middle School Speech Competition. Students in 7th and 8th grade spent weeks preparing to publicly present speeches focused on the topic “This I believe...” in Mrs. Rabasca’s ELA class. Other 7th and 8th grade students in other MDI schools have been doing the same. The District Speech Competition will be held on Thursday, February 28th at 4:30 in the Conners Emerson Library. The three students moving on from TCS to the district competition are 1) Francis, 2) Acadia, 3) Beatriz. The same evening as the District Speech Competition, 8th grade students from all schools will have 8th Grade Step Up Night. This event will help to familiarize them with the high school and give them a glimpse into next year when they become become freshmen. 8th grade parents should plan to attend with their child.
Tuesday, February 26th students from across MDI will come together to showcase their musical talents for Island Jazz Night at MDIHS. This event will take place at 6:00pm. Students love seeing familiar faces in the audience and would appreciate community support. It would be wonderful to see you there!
Last weekend was the TCS Sweetheart Family Dance. It was a wonderful success and so much fun! We enjoyed seeing families come out together, take photos together, dance together and just have fun together. It’s nice to have a reason to dress up sometimes and with long winters, an event such as this was a welcome change of pace. Many thanks to the PTO for pulling this event together and to all the families who were able to attend. We certainly look forward to next year!
