Kate Morneau, new Principal at Tatham, hosted open visiting hours on four Wednesday mornings throughout the summer at Tatham Elementary School.  She thanks all the families of Tatham School, School Committee members, Town Council members, community members, and staff members for visiting.   

Most of the Tatham staff is returning; however, there will be some new faces around Tatham.  Tatham welcomes the following new staff members:

  • April Prior - Special Education teacher - 1/2 Tatham; 1/2 Mittineague (Former Special Education teacher @ Gateway Regional).  This position is an increase from our 1.0 SPED at Tatham.  

Though not new faces, the following staff members have new roles at Tatham:

  • Amy Ramos - Reading Specialist (Former Gr. 5 teacher)

  • Simon Tucker - Music Teacher (Former Interim Music teacher)

  • Joe Grimaldi - Interim Grade 3 teacher (Former Gr. 2 teacher @  Tatham)


Tatham’s custodians, along with Central Maintenance,  have been working hard. Some of the highlights and updates include:

  • new ceiling tiles in our Math intervention room

  • new emergency fire doors in all classrooms

  • installation of LED lights throughout building

The NEW modular building is coming and on track to arrive in October and be ready for occupancy by the end of October.  It will be outfitted with technology and new furniture and will be beautiful! The following classrooms will move into the modular building:

  • Gr. 5 Mrs. Santos’ class

  • Gr. 5 Ms. Lunney’s class

  • Gr. 5 Ms. Levin’s class

  • Gr. 3 Mr. Grimaldi’s class

Mrs. Morneau and our first grade teachers (Mrs. Cote, Mrs. D’Angelo, and Mrs. Martin) are looking forward to meeting our first graders on Wednesday, August 28 from 9-10 AM.  We will begin our first grade orientation in the GYM where families will get a brief introduction to the school and then head to their classrooms for a classroom orientation.  Please note that this is not a time for a conference with the teacher; rather, an introduction to the school, the teacher, and the classroom. Orientation will end promptly by 10 AM as the teachers have much work to do to prepare for the first day of school, which is Thursday, August 29.  

Tatham’s school day begins daily at 8:05 AM.  Instruction begins promptly at 8:30 AM. Dismissal begins at 2:45 PM.  Attention to attendance and non-interrupted learning time is pivotal to your child’s success as a responsible learner.  Please make every effort to schedule appointments for your child either on days off from school or after school. Also, please make every effort to schedule vacations on our scheduled school vacation weeks.  You can find this year’s school calendar on the district website, in addition to many other resources.  

SAVE THE DATE for your Tatham’s OPEN HOUSE, scheduled on Thursday, September 12 from 6-7:30 PM.  We look forward to seeing all Tatham families at Open House.
