May 5-11 marks National Educator Appreciation Week. At TMS, we realize the extraordinary efforts our districts’ teachers, leaders, and support staff put forth on behalf of their students. We are all educators or are related to educators and know the personal sacrifices they make to ensure that their students get the highest quality curriculum and instruction in their classrooms, whether brick-and-mortar or online. While this is an annual celebration, we appreciate all of you every day!
Congratulations to TMS Director of Business Operations, Chris Desjardins. He and the Hadley, MA superintendent, Anne McKenzie, received the AASBO Pathways to the Meritorious Budget Award in 2016, a step on the road to earning the Meritorious Budget Award.
