SCHOOL YARD SCRIBBLES

From the Issue: 
January 2012

    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. 

    Voting will be held in the multipurpose room on Tuesday, January 10th from 10am-7pm.  School will be in session this day so please take care when entering and exiting the school grounds.  The PTO will be holding their monthly meeting on Wednesday, January 11th at 6:00pm in the staff room.  All PTO meetings are open to whoever wishes to attend them.  On Friday, January 13th, students in grades 4-6 will have an opportunity to participate in the school Spelling Bee.  It will take place in the E.M.M.R. following Friday Morning Meeting.  Good luck to all who signed up! Friday, January 13th is also our next Early Release Date. MRHS students will be dismissed at 11:30am and Elementary students will be dismissed at 12:30pm.  That same night, January 13th, the MRHS Interact Club will be hosting an activity night for students in grades 4-6 from 6pm-9pm.  Please look for more information to come home regarding this event. 

    School will be closed on Monday, January 16th in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  School will also be closed on Tuesday, January 17th so our teachers can attend a district workshop.  Enjoy your long weekend! The PTO, along with the MRSD-BASP will be holding a movie night on Friday January 20th.  Bring your blankets, wear your jammies, arrive at 6:00 to get a good seat, and settle in for a night of fun on the big screen!  Snacks and concessions will be available for sale and the movie will begin at 6:15pm.
