Join us for the TTU Parent University!

 

We are very excited to be able to announce the first of what we hope will become an annual event for parents in Boxford, Middleton, and Topsfield.  

 

The TTU Parent University is an opportunity for parents and guardians in Boxford, Topsfield, and Middleton to come together and learn ways to support their children in their educational journey. Parent University is designed to support parents and families across a variety of relevant topics including understanding the methods and practices of school curricula, exploring best supports for social emotional learning, navigating digital citizenship, and prioritizing parent wellness as a critical component. The conference is designed into a series of engaging presentations and discussions that will provide insight and perspective on topics ranging from academics, character education, and preparing students for the journey ahead, including middle school, high school, and the world beyond. This year’s event will be highlighted by keynote speaker, Dr. Bill Daggett, who will enlighten parents to the fourth industrial revolution and the role of relationships, rigor and relevance in the school setting. We see this as a unique way to partner with parents to enrich themselves and to help their children thrive.

 

When?: Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 8:30am-12:15

Where?: Howe Manning School at 26 Central Street Middleton, MA

Who?: Any parents, guardians, caregivers in Boxford, Middleton, and Topsfield

School Nutrition Program Information

September 12, 2018

 

Dear Parents and Guardians of Boxford, Middleton, and Topsfield Elementary School Students:

We would like to welcome you back for the 2018-2019 School Year.

The purpose of this letter is to communicate some helpful information about the School Nutrition Programs for the Districts.

We are very excited to continue our partnership with Whitsons Culinary Group. Whitsons is working diligently to develop and communicate menu options for our young students that are nutritionally sound, fulfilling, and meet the current USDA guidelines. We want the lunchroom experience to be an enjoyable time for the students and we look forward to the opportunity to provide them with a healthy lunch.

This year we have expanded options to students which will allow them to purchase ala carte items that are not part of the regular lunch for an additional cost (bottled water is an ala carte item). The ala carte items also meet the USDA guidelines and are approved for sale in schools.

It is important to the administration that parents make informed decisions about student meals and have complete control over what children may purchase. If you have any concerns or would like limitations on certain purchases, please do not hesitate to contact our Food Service Director, Mrs. Mayra Maldonado at maldonadom@whitsons.com. Any information that you want incorporated into a student’s profile will be done via our point of sale system.

In closing, if you need assistance with your child(ren)’s account please contact Mayra at the e-mail listed about

As always we welcome your feedback and recommendations.

We appreciate being a part of your community and hope everyone has an enjoyable school year.

Sincerely,

 

Steven Greenberg, Assistant Superintendent
