    It looks like we jumped the gun on winter’s arrival in our last update. We’ve let go of dreams of sledding parties on the hill and brought the soccer nets back out. If we can’t have winter then let’s hurry up with spring!!  Along with mud season, March brings Town Meetings and Voting Day. Voting will be held on Tuesday, March 13th from 10am-7pm. School will be in session and we ask that you please drive slowly and carefully around the school.

    The PTO will hold its monthly meeting on Wednesday, March 14th at 6 PM. All PTO meetings are open to whoever wishes to attend. Yearbook orders must be turned in by Friday, March 16th. The cost per book is $10 and checks may be made out to Troy PTO.  The School Board will hold its March meetings on Tuesday, March 6th and Tuesday, March 20th at 7 PM in the MRMHS Library.  Our next early release day will be on Thursday, March 15th.

So we’ve all gotten our tax bills and they aren’t any lower.  What happened to the district’s surplus?  It’s simple:

    It looks like winter finally showed up! We were beginning to think that the students might be playing soccer in the lower field right straight through until June. Now that the cold weather has arrived, I’d like to take this time to remind you that we hold outdoor recess if the temperature is 15*F or higher. Please make sure your students leave in the morning with jackets, hats, scarves, gloves etc. Students in grades K-4 need boots and snow pants to be down in the lower field if there is snow on the ground. Students in grades 5-6 just need boots. Parts of our old school building are colder than others, and sometimes it’s colder in the mornings than it is in the afternoon. They can’t go wrong if they come to school dressed in layers, but if they show up in just a short sleeve shirt, or without socks, chances are they are going to be cold. Please encourage them to dress appropriately.

    We hope everyone had a nice holiday and a restful vacation.  We come back to school in January rejuvenated and ready to get some serious learning done! Troy School would like to welcome Sandy Smith back to our staff. Sandy worked at Troy School as a para-educator from 1998 until 2002 and has spent the years since then working at the Middle School and High School as an Administrative Assistant.  She is the new Administrative Assistant here at Troy School and will be the new voice on the phone and face in the office so we ask you to give her a warm hello when you see her.

If you listen carefully you can hear the excitement brewing in the halls of Troy School.

On Thursday, December 1st the PTO is holding a Gamewright Game Night from 6-7 PM.  Games from Gamewright will be available for playing and ordering.  Rumor has it that a big, jolly man in a red suit will be hanging about the Town common on Sunday December 4th.  Students are encouraged to bring canned goods or non-perishable food items to donate to Helping Hand enjoy a bonfire and sing Christmas Carols while they wait for his big arrival.  Thanks to the PTO for coordinating this event with the town.  Monday, December 5th is our next early release day.  MRMS-MRHS students will be dismissed at 11:30 and Troy School students will be dismissed at 12:30.

SCHOOL BOARD UPDATE

From the Issue: 
December 2011
The Monadnock Regional School District’s final budget paperwork was sent in the state late this year and for good reason.  The Board’s auditors wanted to double check all our calculations and confirm the amount of our surplus as accurate.  It turns out that the final amount is a little over $920,000.  This amount is a surplus from the 2010 – 2011 school year and must be returned to the taxpayers by statute. I think it is worth noting that much of this surplus is due to the outstanding efforts of our Business Manager in rectifying prior billing errors between districts in the former SAU 38 where our money was given to Winchester and Hinsdale as well as outstanding efforts on the part of our Special Ed Department to make sure our billings are correct and that we obtain the reimbursements to which we are legally entitled.

GRANDPARENTS LUNCHEON

From the Issue: 
December 2011
Troy Elementary School would like to thank the community for coming out and supporting our annual Grandparents Luncheon.  The students look forward to this event all month and really do enjoy getting to eat and spend time with members of their families.  We would also like to thank the kitchen staff and the school staff who work so hard to get it organized each year.  Great job everyone!
