The TC Insider - news from Tri-County
March 23, 2018

To the Tri-County Community,

Happy Spring! With a half foot of snow on the ground our sports teams are all competing for gym time because they can't get on our fields. The longer days and outdoor sports teams trigger anticipation of warmer days, ball games, and track meets.

Spring also means MCAS and next week our sophomores will sit for the ELA portion of the exams. All sophomore students will be taking the English Language Arts MCAS exam. The test will run over the course of three days: Tuesday, March 27, Wednesday, March 28, and Thursday, March 29. Please have your sophomore students go to bed at a reasonable time each night this week and come to school on time and ready to do their best. Students may bring reading material if they finish early, or may work on homework that is not ELA related. Please remind your children that cell phones, earbuds, iPods, or any electronic devices are not allowed at the testing sites. It would be better to leave them home or in their lockers during MCAS. Please make sure your child is in school and on time each day of the testing and if there is a problem, let the school know as soon as possible.

We are all disheartened by another school shooting in Maryland this week. I want to thank the TC Student Council for their hard work and sincerity in honoring those that died in Florida over a month ago. Our Student Council has not had much cooperation from the weather, but have remained steadfast in their desire to join thousands of students in Massachusetts and across the country in expressing their support for safe schools. They have approached this in a very responsible and cooperative way that respects all views and honors the lost. We will update these pages once the students get a chance to express themselves.

Spring also means the eighth-grade student application process is moving along through the interview phase, into placement testing, and the mailing of acceptance letters. Applicants should set aside Saturday, April 28, 2018 to come in for our annual placement exam. More details will be sent in the near future.

It is my pleasure to announce Jayme Martello, a senior in the cosmetology program, has been awarded a 2-year full scholarship to Dean College. Though the scholarship has typically been announced at graduation exercises in the past, this year it has been announced earlier in order to meet the College's acceptance fall enrollment schedule. Congratulations to Jamie from all of us at Tri-County.

Did you know Tri-County is celebrating its' 40th year? In case you haven't heard, the 40 Year Celebration and Benefit party is scheduled for Saturday night, April 7, 2018 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM here at the high school. You can find out more details about the event below. We hope you'll come out and celebrate with us!

Thanks for your support,
Mr. Procaccini
