HIGH HONOR ROLL
The PTO, along with the NCLA Program, will be holding a Simple Supper/ Family Game Night on Thursday, December 2nd. A supper of bread, soups and salad will be served at 5:30 PM in the Multipurpose Room. Following that, an assortment of board games will be available to be both played, and purchased. Prices range from $6 to $28. The PTO will hold its December meeting on Wednesday, December 8th at 6 PM. PTO meetings are open to all.
Throughout the fall fun, readiness activities are being taught. The students enjoy hearing the beginning letter sounds and then forming their shapes in the rice and/or bean table. The children are learning by doing and exploring. The students are also learning how to take turns, share, and to use manners. Story time is always a favorite quiet, listening activity at preschool.
Two day and three day sessions are held at Tender Shepherd. The preschool has been serving area families for over 25 years. For more information, please call 242-SAVE.(7283)
On Tuesday November 2nd, from 10 AM until 7 PM, voting will be held in the Elaine Merrifield Multipurpose Room. School will be in session this day, and we ask you to please drive slowly and carefully as you enter the school yard.
The PTO will hold its monthly meeting on Wednesday November 10th at 6 PM. All PTO meetings are open to the public. The PTO is looking for new members who would like to help support the students and teachers at Troy School. You need not attend meetings to be on the PTO. Please contact Terri Dushion at email@example.com if you are interested in helping out.
Soon you will receive from the District a brochure highlighting the positive impact withdrawal from SAU#38 will bring to Monadnock and especially to our students. Below we have included a portion of the brochure which outlines the findings from the Withdrawal Committee.
A Monadnock-only SAU focuses 100% of staff attention on OUR students - we don't share expertise, and our students benefit.
Our plan for our SAU improves coordination of Special Education in the elementary schools, which serves students better and could save money over the long term.
A Supervisory Administrative Unit (SAU) provides school districts with curriculum, business, and special education services. About 35 years ago the state forced the merger of Monadnock into an SAU with the Winchester and Hinsdale School Districts hoping for efficiencies of scale which never materialized. Monadnock has been responsible for more than 60% of the special education and management costs of the Winchester and Hinsdale School Districts. The Hinsdale District will probably leave the SAU at the end of June, which means Monadnock will pay about 77% of Winchester’s special education and management costs unless we pass this vote to withdraw on October 26..
