The TC Insider

October 20, 2017

To the Tri-County Community,

Fall is a busy time in most schools, but at Tri-County we not only begin the year welcoming our freshmen, but begin to look towards next year's freshmen as we entertain eighth graders. We get off to a fast start and don't slow down until Thanksgiving or so. When you add a Coordinated Program Review by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education as well as the kickoff of a self-study for next year's New England Association of Schools and Colleges accreditation visit, it can boarder on overwhelming. In true TC fashion the students, faculty, and administration have risen to the challenge and we are on track and moving forward.

On October 26th and 27th we will welcome district eighth graders to Career Days during the school day as they visit us for tours of the facility. On November 9th we invite the eighth graders to visit in the evening with their families for our 8th Grade Open House. At 8th Grade Open House we formally kickoff the application program for next year's incoming freshmen class. Homecoming this year will be November 18th the Saturday evening before the Cougar Classic Thanksgiving Game against the Old Colony Cougars on Wednesday evening November 22nd at Bellingham High under the lights.

Fall sports are in full swing and several of our teams have either qualified or are close to qualifying for tournament spots this season. The Girls' Volleyball team has a 13-1 record and has already qualified, and both Boys' and Girls' Soccer are a win away from qualifying. Our Cross Country and Golf teams are starting to prepare for league, division, and state competitions as well.

We had our first Program Advisory meeting of the year, and I want to thank all of you that participated in the evening assisting us in providing valuable industry input into our vocational programs. It was one of the largest turnouts we have had for the event. Please mark Saturday, December 2nd on your calendar for our annual Showcase Spectacular as we open up the school to the public for this wonderful community event. This is our third Showcase Spectacular, and we look forward to welcoming all of you into the school for a visit.  We look forward to seeing you!

Thanks for your support,
Mr. Procaccini
