Tri-Town Council Adult Perception Survey

Tri-Town Council is launching its 4th biennial Adult Perception Survey and your input is needed!  This survey provides parents/primary caregivers, educators, and concerned adults the opportunity to share attitudes, perceptions and concerns of health, safety and risk behaviors of tri-town youth.  The results will inform programming and Tri-Town Council’s mission to strengthen and support the well-being of youth in our community.

We appreciate you taking the time to fill out this brief survey which should take less than 10 minutes to complete.  Link HERE.  The executive summary of this survey will be shared at the Community Conversation in the fall.

We thank you in advance for your time and participation!

4th Grade STEAM Materials Request

Hello fourth grade families! It has been a fun year in STEAM, and I’d love to end it with a fun hands-on project, making mini felt monster heads! To do this, I will need some help gathering the following materials:

*polyester fiberfill (for stuffing)


*sewing needles with big eyes for easy threading


*waxed quilting thread


*tacky glue


*decorative items such as googly eyes, sequins and other things that can be glued onto felt

I am hoping to begin this project the week of June 5th. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
