Thank you to all our Tatham families for attending Open House last week! 

It was great to meet so many families.  

DonorsChoose Project helps Mrs. Scytkowski’s third grade class get excited about reading on their NEW rug for the reading center and working together in their new flexible seats (two NEW bouncy seats)!  See pictures on slide show.

Mrs. Cote’s classroom earned 100 marbles in their jar as a result of working so hard on those beginning of the year routines.  They chose to bring their stuffed animals to school! See pictures on slide show.

I am interested in your input on annual activities/events that engage families and enhance your child’s experiences while at Tatham.  To gather your feedback, I’m using a tool called Thoughtexchange. All of our voices matter, so your participation is crucial and valued.

You'll be asked to respond to one open-ended question, consider and assign stars to some of the ideas shared by others (20 to 30 is ideal), and learn what's important to the group.

Your thoughts and stars are confidential. You can come back as often as you'd like to participate and, in fact, we ask that you do come back to star some of the new ideas shared since you first participated. The ratings will help us understand the most important areas to focus on for planning activities/events that matter to you. 

Participation will be open until September 25 (the day of our first PTO meeting).  I will share the results at this PTO meeting.  

If you need technical help, please call Thoughtexchange at 1-800-361-9027 ext. 4 or email help@thoughtexchange.com

Thank you in advance for your help and input.

This week, Tatham and Fausey were designated Title 1 schools by the School Department.  That means that every school, except the High School, is a Title 1 school in West Spfd.  However, we are NOT a Title 1 District due to the fact that not all schools are designated Title 1.   What does this mean for Tatham?  In summary, no big changes, but Tatham (and Fausey) will have access to any district wide programming that fall under Title 1 funding, such as HOME VISITS.  I am happy to discuss this new designation more at future School Council meetings. 

Our Summer Reading Celebration took place on Friday, September 6.  It included students who read throughout the summer either through the town’s library summer reading program or the school’s mission log reading program.  A big shout out to the teachers who organized this assembly: Mrs. Deveno (School Librarian), Mrs. Ramos and Mrs. Serlin (Reading Specialists). Every student received recognition, prizes and a chance to win raffle prizes.  See pictures below.

Aubrey Chapman, a first grader in Mrs. Martin’s class, wrote a book and donated it to the Tatham Library.  Thank you, Aubrey!  See picture below.

Mr. Doyle (School Adjustment Counselor) began Lunch Buddy groups at Tatham!  Students are chosen by their teachers to spend this quality time with Mr. Doyle and other students within the same grade at lunch time.  See picture below.

Tatham Families spoiled our staff with goodies this week to thank them for all that they do!  What a treat!  Thank you SO much.

THANK YOU TO COACH'S ICE CREAM FOR SPONSORING OUR BIRTHDAY BOARD. EACH TATHAM STUDENT WILL RECIEVE A COUPON FOR A FREE MINI SCOOP OF ICE CREAM ON HIS/HER BIRTHDAY!  WHAT A SUPPORTIVE LOCAL BUSINESS!

THE BIG E/WEST SPRINGFIELD TRUST DONATES $5,000 TO TATHAM FOR PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT!  THANK YOU, BIG E!

The NEW modular building is coming and on track to arrive in September and be ready for occupancy by the end of October.  More news to come...

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.
