Head of School Weekly Email: We Made It! Spring Break News

Dear TA Families,

🔔 We made it! Today’s final bell at 2:55pm this afternoon marked the beginning of spring break. TA offices will be closed next week, April 22-26. We look forward to welcoming everyone back on April 29 for the final 7-week stretch of the school year!

⚾ While we pause the academic schedule for the week, our athletics program continues apace. Spring athletes are busy with games, meets, and practices. If weather and fields cooperate, we welcome Panther fans to cheer on our track and field athletes at Lebanon HS on April 23 and Windsor on April 27, and the baseball and softball teams as they compete in various games throughout the week – starting with home games tomorrow at 11am against Vergennes. Check out the TA calendar for details.

🌐 The 8th graders had a good trip to Montreal this week and are headed back south to VT as I write. We will share a full report of their trip soon; for now, here is a group shot to get a glimpse of their special international experience.

🎤 Best of luck to all of our performers in the TA Show tonight. Community audience invited! Showtime is 7pm in the Martha Jane Rich Theater.

🌷 Our spring break might fall a bit later in the season than our neighbors to the south and west, but perhaps waiting will make it all the more sweet. Enjoy the time!

Carrie Brennan, Head of School
