This year for Teacher Appreciation Week they organized an e-cards campaign. Anyone was welcome to participate. In total 110 different staff members got notes from students & families! This was a huge success, and they look forward to continuing this moving forward.
TESPAC was invited to present a “Year in Review” at the June 8 School Committee meeting. They look forward to sharing what was accomplished this year, and are already focused on next year. School Committee meetings are open to the public and are held at Tewksbury Memorial High School in Large Group Instruction Room #1. If you are unable to attend in person they can also be seen on Tewksbury TV on YouTube, or on Comcast Channel 22, or Verizon Channel 34. And are always posted to Tewksbury TV for later viewing.
On Friday, May 20 the TESPAC had their biggest in-person event at Strongwater Farm, with 45 people in attendance. Attendees were given a tour of the farm and had the opportunity to connect with other special education families. The SEPAC plans to have three additional community engagement events between now and September; if you want to be notified about these upcoming events, connect with them via the contact information listed below.
The next TSEPAC meeting is Thursday June 16 at 7 p.m. at TMHS or you can join via zoom. Please reach out to them directly for the zoom link.
