Superintendent’s Welcome Back Message
On behalf of the Members of the Thompson Board of Education,
I welcome students and families to the start of a great school year.
I do hope everyone has had time to rest and enjoy the great weather
we are having this summer.
Welcome to TMS’ Summer Reading 2019
This year TMS is proud to partner with
The Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge and Connecticut Reads.
As study upon study has shown, students who do not read during the summer have difficulty retaining what they have already learned. This creates what is often referred to as the summer achievement gap. In fact, students who do not read during summer vacation return to school, on average, at least one month behind where they left off in the spring (McCombs, et al.).
That is why we at TMS have designed a summer reading program that will promote our students’ continued success.
