Updates from the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians:

It certainly has been a festive start to the school year! The students are well adjusted to their new classroom routines and they are ready to begin an exciting year of learning! We are extremely fortunate to have a school community that works together to prepare our students for success.

As the year begins, it will be important to help your child to prepare for a successful school year. Having a consistent nightly routine of completing homework, practicing math facts, and reading daily, will greatly benefit your child.

As you are aware, it takes a strong parent/teacher partnership to educate our children. We cannot do it alone and we rely on your commitment to your child’s education. Therefore, it will be important that you establish a relationship with your child’s teacher early in the year. Ongoing communication will be very important to ensure your child’s success. I highly recommend that you schedule an appointment with your child’s teacher if you have any concerns. While “sending” teachers do share information with the “receiving” teachers, it is always best to share your concerns from your perspective.

If you have questions or concerns that arise during the year, you can schedule an appointment, call or email the teacher depending on the nature of the concern. You should expect to receive a response within 24 hours. Please remember that you should always begin with the classroom teacher if you do have concerns. Our teachers are always responsive. However, if you have shared your concern and you feel the issue has not been resolved, you may always contact me for support. Please keep in mind, that questions and inquiries posted to social media are not an appropriate nor respectful forum by which to communicate concerns. These platforms are not affiliated with or supported by Tashua School and could actually give you inaccurate information.

We look forward to working with you to ensure your child’s social, emotional, and academic success!

Visitation Days

We look forward to having parents/guardians visit us during our Visitations Days on Tuesday, October 15th and Wednesday, October 16th. Classroom teachers will be sending invitations for designated times.

The following policies have been set by the district for Parent/Guardian Visitations:

  • We encourage a limit of 10-12 visiting parents/guardians in a classroom at a time.
  • Parent/Guardian visitations are not open to grandparents, infants, or pre-school siblings.
  • Cell phones and pagers must be turned off or set on vibrate while in the classroom.
  • Any photographing or videotaping is absolutely not allowed.
  • Coffee and food is not allowed in the classrooms.

We are asking parents to visit for only part of this visitation window.  Classroom teachers will be emailing you with a sign-up sheet to inquire about your preferred time to attend.  This will help us to limit the interruptions to student learning throughout the day.  Remember, visitation hours are solely for parents/guardians; we will not be able to accommodate siblings and other family members. Visitors other than parents will not be permitted to go down to the classrooms. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Tuesday, October 15th

  • Grade 5 9:00 – 10:30
  • Grade 2 10:30 – 12:00
  • Grade 3 1:15 – 2:00; 2:15-3:00

Wednesday, October 16th

  • Grade K   9:00 – 10:30
  • Grade 4   10:30 – 12:00
  • Grade 1   1:30 – 3:00

In addition, I hope you will be able to attend our first “Coffee and Conversation” with Mrs. Neumeyer on Wednesday, October 30th at 8:45 a.m. in the office. This is an opportunity to learn more about the events that are occurring at Tashua and to share your thoughts and ideas to further strengthen our school. I encourage you to attend as this is a great way to keep abreast of what is happening in our school community.

Halloween parties will be held in the classrooms on Thursday, October 31st. We will also have our annual Halloween Parade at 2:45 on this day.  If you would like to see the students in costume, you are welcome to meet us out on the playground as we march outside from A-wing to C-wing. Parents should not be photographing other students.  You are only allowed to photograph your own child.

Each year we hold a Veterans Day Assembly to honor and thank Veterans for their service and sacrifices.  We invite several local Veterans to be our guests of honor at our assembly.  If you have a local family member or friend that has served in the armed forces that you would like our planning committee to consider inviting to be one of our guests, please contact Tyler Cohen at CohenT@trumbullps.org.

Please remember to sign in at the office when you enter the building.  All visitors must obtain a Visitor’s Badge. It is very important that every parent and visitor in our building, regardless of the length of time that will be spent in the building, follows this procedure. We feel that this policy is in the best interest of the safety of our children.

Enjoy the fall season!

Mrs. Neumeyer
