To the Tri-County Community,

One MCAS exam down and two more to go. It's a very busy spring here at TC with MCAS exams, spring sports, robotics and Skills USA State Championships all happening at once.

Our sophomores sat for our first MCAS electronic on-line exam just before vacation. The students were more experienced at taking the exam in this format than we were in giving it. Our concerns regarding infrastructure, bandwidth, and all the assorted electronic aspects of the exam were not realized and things went off without a hitch.  Many thanks to Mrs. Beckmann and the academic and special education teachers that proctored the exam, they spent a great deal of time preparing and I'm sure it will pay off.

Spring sports are in full swing and we are getting some games in despite the weather. Spring is always a challenge. If it's not raining, it's drying off from raining. All of our teams including baseball, softball, lacrosse, and track have winning records and are looking towards making their state tournament competition goals. We also have several girls participating in a girl's lacrosse club team as well. The next couple of weeks will really round out seasons as we participate almost every day in either a scheduled or a makeup game. 

Our robotics team had a great year qualifying for the First Robotics State Competition, they came up a little short at states of reaching their goal of returning to the World Championships in Detroit. One of our HUNCH teams visited NASA as well to demonstrate their design, please read about their account below on our website.

Over sixty of our best craftsmen qualified for the Skills USA State Competition with 5 students winning Gold, again please read the full account below. John Winship represented TC at the State Vocational Student of the Year dinner. Congratulations John!  Julia Farrell was awarded the Dean College Scholarship for next year. Congratulations Julia!

Over 200 district eighth graders were here this past Saturday taking our ninth grade placement exam as part of their application/entry process for TC. Thanks to all the parents that got the students here and stayed around to discover our school while the students took the exam. The spring festivities continue this weekend with our Junior-Senior Prom Friday evening. Then it's on to finals, Senior week, and graduation.

Thanks for your support.
Work Hard, Today Counts,

Mr. Procaccini
