TCS Open House 8-27-18

Dear Thomaston Center School Families,


Midsummer greetings to you!  I hope you are enjoying this summer break and are finding time to reconnect with family and friends, relax, and recharge for the upcoming year ahead. 


The staff has been busy planning and preparing the building for the upcoming academic year and we are eager to showcase our building and share our ideas with you and your family!  On Monday, August 27, 2018 from 4:00-5:00, the staff of Thomaston Center School will host an Open House at Center School.  At that time, you and your family will have an opportunity to tour the school, meet your child’s teachers, and learn about wonderful new learning opportunities for the 2018-19 school year.  All are invited to attend.  For those families with siblings at Black Rock School and/or Thomaston High School, Open House at Black Rock will begin at 5:30 and at Thomaston High School at 6:45 on Monday, August 27, 2018


There are a few staff changes of which you should be aware.  We would like to welcome Ms. Laura Miller and Ms. Pam Nascimento who are coming from Black Rock School and Ms. Shadia Hamzy and Ms. Barbara Lee who joins us from Thomaston High School.  Ms. Miller will be teaching in sixth grade while Ms. Nascimento will be our new Literacy Coach while Ms. Hamzy and Ms. Lee will be supporting students in her role as paraprofessional.  Ms.  Kathy Squatriglia will be moving to Black Rock School and Ms. Gail Lascko will be beginning a new chapter in her life as she celebrates retirement.    We wish Ms. Squatriglia well in her new role and are grateful to her for her service of our Center School students.  


As a reminder, our first day of school will be on Wednesday, August 29, 2018.  School day hours will be from 8:05 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. daily.  More information regarding scheduling and other important school information will be forthcoming as the beginning of the school year draws closer upon us, but we wanted to provide you with this information a bit earlier in case you choose to transport your child to or from school.  


I appreciate your interest and support in your child’s education.  As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  I look forward to seeing you on August 27, 2018 for the Open House.
