I am attaching the March Newsletter. In addition, I am attaching the letter from Mr. Ambrose, Assistant Superintendent , about the state required testing called EmpowerME. And finally, I am attaching a donation sheet for the eighth dance asking those family to help fund the dance. We currently have $140.00 and we need around $800.00 to pay for food, decorations, and gift for the students. The dance has a Hollywood theme. Thank you for your support. Kindest regards, Gail Marine, Principal
The next meeting of Friends of Tripp will be March 7th at 6PM in the Media Center. We will continue to work on the 8th grade dance. Thank you for your support.
I am attaching a letter from Kris Wing, Guidance Counselor, about the process for registering your 8th grader for Freshman classes. Please open the attached letter and contact the school if you have any questions. Thank you for your support.
It's the time of year where we see increased cases of gastrointestinal viruses that cause fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Our goal is to keep the school community healthy and safe. The following are CDC tips and guidelines to adhere to if your child becomes ill:
*Wash your hands with warm soap and water, especially after bathroom use
*Avoid preparing food for at least 2 days after symptoms clear
*Clean and disinfect surfaces with bleach-based household cleaner
*Wash contaminated laundry thoroughly with hot water and detergent
*Students may return to school 24 hours after the last episode of diarrhea and/or vomiting, without fever. Students will be sent home if they return prior to this window of time.
Feel free to contact the school nurse with any questions or concerns at

In the December newsletter I asked parents to go to the following link and complete the survey about Tripps use of technology. The link will be open until the end of school on January 13th. Thank you for your support.Click on the follwoing link: http://www.bbyt.es/P34DP
I have attached the list of students who have qualified for Trimester One Honor Roll. Please remember, if you did not give permission for the school to publish your child's name on the internet they will not be seen in this list. However, all students who made Honor Roll will participate in an ice cream social Friday afternoon, sponsored by Horace Mann. Thank you for your support.
Take 5 minutes to help your child's school make technology decisions. This is an anonymous survey regarding your technology use. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Your answers are very important! They will help your child's school choose the right technology for their classrooms. There are no right or wrong answers. Everyone will have a different set of answers to these questions, depending on his/her different experiences. Thank you for your time and ideas!

A paper will be sent home today explaining the new expectation for Honor Roll. I am also sharing the information here. Currently at Tripp we have Honors and High Honors recognitions. In light of the current standards based grading, we will be dropping the High Honor recognition. It is difficult to say that every student has been given an opportunity to achieve a 4.0 in every standard. For this reason, as we build our capacity for this grading system, we will only have the Honor Roll. Honor Roll will be based on the report card grades. To achieve Honor Roll the student will need to have an overall score of 3.0 having no courses with a score lower than 2.6. Thank you for your support.
