The TC Insider - Tri-County Newsletter

September 9, 2015

A Message from Principal Mallon:

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. September is always an exciting time for students with new classes, sports, and clubs and just being one year closer to graduation. Academic teachers, under the direction of the Academic Coordinator Melissa Beckmann, worked again this summer revising and writing units of instruction to align our curriculum with the common core. The curriculum writing project has now been extended to the vocational side of the house. Two vocational teachers led curriculum workshops under the direction of the Vocational Director, Mrs. Jean George. In the area of bullying prevention, we will be using evidence-based lessons from the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center (MARC) along with content-specific lessons in English, Technology, Health, U.S. History, and Related Instruction to deliver the required elements of the bullying curriculum. In addition, students will be participating in grade-level assemblies presented by Phil Fogelman from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).  His presentation is entitled Breaking Barriers. The goals of Phil's presentation are: (1) to explore the invisible barriers that stand in the way of positive social change in our schools and communities today; and (2) to identify steps that participants can take to help break down these barriers in their schools and communities, and in doing so, facilitate respect, fairness and equal opportunity for all people. The assemblies will be held on September 21 and September 28. Our Dean of Students, Chris Beaton will present to parents on Monday, September 29, from 7 to 8:30 in the auditorium. Tri-County's Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan, which is included in the Student Handbook posted on our webpage, was also mailed to all families in late August.
