Wow, where did the 2014-2015 school year go? It has been an amazing year at Turtleback this year. Due to the unmatched support of the staff, The Turtleback Education Foundation Collaborative, community partners, volunteers, and, of course, you the parent, our students have blossomed academically, socially, and emotionally. This year’s implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Math has really been challenging as well as enlightening! We are looking forward to continuing our work in math and adding on the Common Core State Standards for Reading in 2015-2016. With this in mind, a great way to prepare your child will be to encourage reading of non-fiction texts over the summer. Reading about history, social studies, science, sports or whatever your child is interested in is strongly encouraged.
A few staff members need to be appropriately acknowledged as they prepare to close their educational experience at Turtleback. We wish the very best to our three retiring teachers, Mrs. Mallory, Mrs. Duffy and Mrs. Allbritain! We sincerely hope you enjoy your well-deserved retirements! We will miss all of you very much.
Finally I would like to acknowledge the entire Turtleback staff for the sincere dedication and commitment they demonstrate toward your children every day! Have a wonderful summer!
