SBAC TESTING SCHEDULE
REVISED

Due to the delay in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium's testing, Tolland High School has adjusted the testing schedule.  We have done our best to keep in mind the varying needs of each of our students in the creation of the schedule.  The new schedule is listed below.
 
Juniors will be testing during the school day between Friday, March 28 and Tuesday, April 8.  The individual testing schedule will be posted on colored pieces of paper throughout the building, so students can see where and when they will be testing.  Please note that not all juniors are testing at the same time.  All students should report to school for a regular start and dismissal time throughout these testing days.
 
The sophomore testing schedule has been moved to after the juniors have completed their testing and after April vacation.  Sophomores will begin testing on Tuesday, April 22 and conclude on Tuesday, April 29.  Please note the adjustments listed below in the start and dismissal times for these testing dates.

Tolland Project Graduation Bottle Drive
NEW LOCATION


Birch Grove Elementary School
  
 
Spring cleaning.  Bring all the bottles and cans you've been storing during these cold winter months!

Bring a friend and spend a few hours helping Project Graduation sort bottles and cans.   
No set shifts.
 
Fun activity to do with your friends.  If you can only help for a couple hours, we'd LOVE to have you.  No experience needed. 
Cold drinks & pizza lunch provided.  

A great way for students to earn those community service hours needed for school or church. College Admissions love community service!!!

SENIORS: Each time you volunteer for any Project Graduation event, your name will be entered into a drawing for a cash prize to be awarded at the senior assembly in June.  If you volunteer once, your name goes in once, if you volunteer 3 times, it goes in 3 times.  The more you volunteer, the better your odds!  
 
Email Susie Lotreck at gslotreck@yahoo.com if you can help us out.
 
Thank you! 

 TOLLAND PROJECT GRADUATION

New Gampel Coordinators Needed

This is the third year that we have been the Gampel coordinators for Project Graduation. While we have enjoyed volunteering our time for this cause, we have decided this will be our last year.  So, Project Graduation will need a new team of Gampel coordinators beginning in the Fall of 2014.  Start thinking about whether you would like to take this on.  It can be a team of 3-4 people that split the time commitment.  Or, maybe there is a couple out there that is looking for a volunteer opportunity.  We'll need to have people lined up for this leadership role and ready to start transition for the last couple of games this season.  Reach out to us to chat and answer any questions you may have. If you are interested, please contact Kathryn & Will Stackpole at tpg.basketball@gmail.com.
