Welcome Back Tigers!

I hope you all had a wonderful and restful summer! It was wonderful to see so many families on campus during registration and student move in! We spent a great deal of time over the summer preparing the cottages for the students’ arrival! At registration, you should have received the phone number for your child’s cottage – please call any time you need to. Keep in mind, staff are not in the cottages during the
school day, and they may be out and about in the evenings, but you may leave a message and your call will be returned. 
The residential department is making a few changes to our processes as a result of the information you provided to us in the “Parent Survey” we sent out last spring. First, the youth service worker staff will be using the weekly calls home to touch base with you about your child and other events occurring after school. This comes as a result of your request for more frequent communication with staff. Second, the youth service worker staff will be working with you to set some goals for your child in the cottage. Do you want her/him to learn more about cooking? Cleaning? Making her/him bed? This is a result of the information you provided letting us know you have not felt that you have ever been asked what you feel would be meaningful for your child to learn in the cottages. We are excited to make these changes, and we hope they will prove beneficial to you!  
A few reminders and upcoming events:
     Fall Break begins Monday, October 7th! Bussing will resume Sunday, October 13th.  
     Nine Week Summaries will go home on Friday, October 18th, following the end of our first nine weeks of school on October 4th!
     Weather is still fluctuating, but it may be a good idea to send a fall jacket and some fall weather clothing to school with your child! Some days may be too chilly for shorts and a t-shirt! If you need assistance with this, please call me. 
     ROCKTOBERFEST will be October 24th at TSB! This event is open to the public! Come out and enjoy some music and activities! 
     HALLOWEEN is Thursday, October 31st! Send a school-appropriate costume if you would like! We will have an after-school event planned for the students – information will be communicated to you as we get closer! 
As always, please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns!  We are looking forward to a great year!
