Hello Tenney families! Happy Friday! It is hard to believe we are heading into April.  Much is happening this week. Our drama students are in the final weeks of rehearsal for their production of Under the Sea, 7 and 8th graders have a dance on Friday night and our lower school students are getting ready to vote for their favorite book in the Marsh Madness reading event.


During the next two weeks, the candidates for the position of Superintendent of the Methuen Public Schools will each spend a day in the district, touring the schools, visiting with students and staff and meeting with members of the community. During the course of their day, they will spend time in each school and at the Central Administration building.  They will end their day with a Community Meet and Greet, where parents, staff and community members can drop in and spend a few moments with the candidates. The visits will take place on:
