Happy Sunday night, Tenney families, this is Mary Beth Donovan with your call about the week ahead.  This is a short week . No school on Tuesday because of elections  and no school on Friday in honor of  Veterans Day.  We honor our nation's veterans and are so proud of the many Tenney family members who are serving or who have served our country. Outside the main office is our Wall of Honor that features pictures of former students , parents, siblings, grandparents of our students who are active duty or veterans. If  a family member is a veteran or  someone currently serving in our Armed Forces,  please send in picture of that person and a description of his or her service. We would be honored to include your military family member on our wall. Thanks to Ms. Wyman and our Peer Leaders for this great idea!

Happy Sunday night Tenney families, this is Mary Beth Donovan supervising principal with some quick news about the week ahead.

And if you can help us out with one thing - we celebrated Halloween with our great Monster Bash and hope everyone has fun trick-or-treating. Please enjoy your Trick or Treat  candy at home. Allergy concerns and the distraction all that sweet stuff can can make learning and listening a challenge.
