Happy Holidays Tashua Families!

As 2017 is winding down and we are wrapping up with the 1st trimester of school, it gives us a chance to reflect on all that we have accomplished as a school community. We continue to build on our positive school climate as we work to teach our students about the character traits that represent our T.I.G.E.R.S. acronym. Last month, we held a Veterans Day assembly to honor those who have served for our country. During the assembly, Major Vanessa Marshall, US Army Nurse Corps, Captain Tom Lee, US Army, Sergeant Willie Lawrence, Marine Corps, Lieutenant Walt Wuchiski, US Army, Mr. David Weir, US Army, Mr. Adam Nankervis, US Navy, Captain Jay King, US Army, Lieutenant Colonel Bob Mraz, US Army, and Mr. Greg Sheridan, US Navy spoke to our students about the importance of showing INTEGRITY. Our students listened closely to their powerful messages. This assembly made quite an impression on the children and we were all thrilled to be able to spend time with these veterans to express our appreciation for their services.

For the last two months, our focus has been on INTEGRITY. For the next two months, our focus will be on GENEROSITY.

This month, our student council is helping our students to show GENEROSITY by having them participate in our annual school-wide “Holiday Helpers” Project; we are working together to bring a brighter holiday to the children in our regional Head Start program in Trumbull.

Further, our Tashua Community Service Committee will be helping us to strengthen the message of showing GENEROSITY by sponsoring a “Tashua Toy Drive” event. Students are asked to donate clean, gently used plastic toys. The collection dates are December 2nd at Town Hall and December 9th at Tashua School from 9 am – noon. Thank you to all the parents who have helped to make this event possible.

Although it is important to show our generosity with events such as these, it is also important that we send the message to our children that generosity goes beyond materialistic items. Acts of generosity require an awareness of the needs and feelings of others. These generous acts can be shown through our actions of sharing our time and talents with others.

There are so many wonderful opportunities for children during the month of December. It is a time for holiday parties, family get-togethers, holiday performances and holiday specials on TV. But remember children can have too much of a good thing! They get tired and cranky if they are running from one event to the next without time to relax and just be kids. It is important for you to be selective about these special activities. Choose a few that your child will truly enjoy and forget the rest. AND…remember to keep your child’s normal routines in place as much as possible during the holiday season. If you do, you and your child will be much happier!

Soon it will be time for our LONG winter break. During this time off, it will be important for the students to continue reading, writing, and practicing their math facts. Make learning fun by tying it into a part of your daily routine so students understand the importance of education.

Wishing all the best in 2018!
Mrs. Neumeyer
