    Please join me in congratulating our Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Allison Altieri!!!  Mrs. Altieri is an educator who consistently goes above and beyond to meet the needs of her students.  She is a trusted and supportive colleague who demonstrates commitment to TJS and is truly deserving of this honor.
    I'd like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Steve Alcorn for organizing May Day beautification efforts at TJS.  A lot of hard work and sweat went into sprucing up our grounds.  I'd also like to thank the many parents and students for volunteering, as well.
