Thank you to Ms. Petruzzellis and all of our amazing volunteers!

Terra Centre Families,

Our fall Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success!  Thank you to Ms. Petruzzellis and all of our volunteers for their hard work.  All of the sales benefit Terra Centre and the library. We appreciate you supporting our school through your shopping.

As a reminder, starting on Monday Mrs. Jewell is now our Acting Assistant Principal while Ms. Lewis is serving as the Acting Educational Specialist, Non-traditional Programs. We are fortunate to have Mrs. Jewell serving in this temporary role. She is familiar with our students and families, and is excited for this opportunity.

Our winter break is fast approaching!  Even with 10 school days left, out teachers and students are staying engaged in academic learning.  We have many exciting activities planned over the next two weeks, and we look forward to seeing you at these events. Please scroll down for more information.

Loving Solutions

Workshop Series Brings Loving Solutions to Challenging Behaviors

Are you tired of arguing with your children? Would you like to improve communication and create a space of harmony at home?  If so, you need some Loving Solutions!

Join us on Wednesday, December 6th at 5 p.m. in the Terra Centre Cafeteria to learn more about this exciting 10-week, mostly virtual, family workshop coming to the Robinson pyramid this winter. It’s designed especially for families with strong-willed 5- to 10-year-olds, and, as parents know, this age can be challenging! The creators of Loving Solutions call the program’s workbook “The Manual the Hospital Forgot to Give You,” and it’s packed with effective strategies and tools to support parenting in a positive and loving way.

We hope to see you on December 6th!
