TSNH is a non-profit, after- school program
for children in grades K-6, which has served
the Hopkinton community since 1983.
We are currently accepting registrations for
the 2006-2007 school year. For information
contact Linda Ottery at 529-2186 or email at
tsnh at comcast.net.
There are Hallmark moments for nearly every occasion. In addition to
the traditional holidays and birthdays, there is now a Grandparents
Day, Office Manager Day, and Boss Day. One of these “days” flew by
this week with not enough attention, frankly, and that’s Teacher’s
Day, which was Tuesday, May 9th sponsored by the National Education
All of the research shows that the quality of your child’s teacher is
the single most important factor in their learning. School culture,
strong leadership, and an adequate school facility are essential, but
the bottom line is that a child’s school success begins and ends with
the teacher. If we want to improve the academic status of our kids,
invest in the professional development of teachers. This time of
year, when we are focusing on student placement, I’m proud to say
that there isn’t a teacher at Harold Martin School that I wouldn’t
want my own children to have.
We are fortunate to have a community in Hopkinton that respects the
work our school district does on behalf of your children. In fact,
the partnership we share is one of the true “hallmarks” of our town.
We do feel appreciated by our parents and community members.
I hope we can enjoy the rainy weekend. Time to get out the board
games and books.
