Hi TJL Families!

Thank you for visiting our TJL Webpage! 

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We're looking forward to a fun-filled month of December ahead!  Our winter concert season will begin next week with our Grade 5 Winter Concert on Monday, December 5th.  During this concert, performances will be made by our Grade 5 Band, Grade 5 Orchestra and Grade 5 Chorus.  Our students and staff have been working hard as they prepare for this event.  It's going to be a night that's sure to please!

Student report cards are now available on the Parent Portal.  For information regarding how to access your child's report card, please view this brief video prepared by Mrs. Washington:

Our Parent Literacy Workshop was a big success.  Thank you to Dr. DeLorenzo and our wonderful teachers (Mrs. Armstrong, Ms. Perfall, Mrs. Turrini and Mrs. Teape) for presenting and thank you to all of the parents who attended.  We hope that the night was both informative and fun for you! 



We also had a wonderful Grade 3 Parent Literacy Night as well! During this event, the students and their parents rotated through six stations that focused on different reading strategies that students can use at home.  We were also very fortunate to have Mrs. Moisan, from the Harborfields Public Library, in attendance as well.  It was a fun and engaging time for all involved!  A big thank you to Mrs. Bowles, Mrs. Mancuso, Ms. Schaefer, Ms. Tyrie, and Mrs. Gutmann for coordinating the event and running the stations. 


We had a great first meeting of our No Place for Hate committee!  We are so fortunate to have over 40 students on this committee as well as many parents and staff members!  We are looking forward to our next meeting where we will begin the planning process for our building-wide projects for the 2022-2023 school year!



The past few weeks have been a lot of fun for our students and staff as we participated in the WizFit Challenge!  Students participated in both live events and virtual events to learn about the importance of being active.  With this, our students completed the designated "WizFit" challenges during PE.  The students did an amazing job and had a wonderful "Finale Celebration" with members of the Harlem Wizards. We are so proud of all of our students for their outstanding participation and we're looking forward to our upcoming basketball games with the Harlem Wizards on December 2nd and December 3rd!



We are happy to share that our construction process is picking up speed!  The front of the building is all framed out and the "build" has begun!  We couldn't be more excited about the progress that will happen over the next few weeks.  We can't thank you enough for all of your continued support during arrival and dismissal.


For more information about this project, as well as updated procedures for arrival, dismissal and visitation to the building, please see the attached letter that was sent out to families prior to the start of the school year.
