I have a brief update to share on the December 13 arrest of a Tri-County student accused of making threats against the school. The dangerousness hearing that was scheduled for Thursday, December 22, has been postponed to Thursday, December 29. The student will continue to be held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing. Please expect another update via the SchoolMessenger program next week.
Unfortunately the events of last week overshadowed some wonderful student achievements. I do not want to begin winter holiday vacation without first telling you of the many exciting things happening around the school. Last week, 60 seniors who qualified for the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship were recognized during a celebratory luncheon. Members of the Student Council continued a Tri-County tradition as they presented donated gifts to representatives from YOU, Inc. and The Santa Foundation. Winter sports are well underway, with all of our teams winning at least one of their first two games.
After a difficult few weeks at Tri-County, we look forward to the sense of rejuvenation that comes with a new year. On behalf of the entire Tri-County faculty and staff, I wish you and your loved ones a very happy holiday season.
Thank you for your support,
Important Updates on the Senior Project
Juniors and Senior Project
The research paper for the Senior Project is well under way and the first draft (typed) of the paper is due on January 11, 2017. Juniors will give a copy to their English teacher as well as a copy to their Related instructor on Jan. 11. This date is firm and penalties are assessed for late assignments. To find out more information on deadlines, as well as grading weights, please access page 5 of The Senior Project Manual located on the website.
Once again, please be aware that students who have missed deadlines or are struggling have been remanded to the Homework Center for assistance. An English teacher is allocated to the Center Tuesdays through Thursdays specifically to provide guidance with the Senior Project Paper. Our English Department goes to great lengths to support your child's success. Please encourage your junior to take advantage of this extra help. Deadlines are firm and can be found on page 5 of the Senior Project Manual (located on the website).
