Dear High School Parents:
With election day Tuesday, November 3, we will be fully Asynchronous. Teachers will have assignments posted for Tuesday in the morning.
Consequently, Monday, November 2, Cohort A will be in school and Cohort B will be virtual. We will also follow the Block Schedule normally on a Tuesday, this Monday, November 2. This will provide a balance of learning for the week.
Thank you to our Guidance Counselors for a very effective presentation to our tenth and eleventh grade parents. A special thank you to our Senior Advisors, Ms. Laise and Ms. Iverson for arranging the Senior Halloween brunches by Cohort. The pandemic did not diminish the costumes worn by our senior students.
Congratulations to our English teachers at THS as they were awarded the New York State Reading Association Award for Literacy Outreach. This recognition stems from their developing Student Choice Classroom libraries and creating a 6-12 Distributed Library System with their TMS colleagues.
Thank you to the PTA for the Halloween gift bags for our students. It made the day special!
During Tuesday’s Asynchronous Day, students are invited to review videos of Clubs for this school year. We encourage all THS students to get involved. Mr. Tobin has sent out announcement with the details.
Remember, we return to Standard Time this weekend as the clocks go back one hour. Of significance, there has been an increase in bicycle riding after school, so please remind your student to peddle home before it gets dark and watch out for the cars!
Have a safe Halloween!
Dr. Bart Linehan
