Today we are sending all TWKDMS students home with a pair of eclipse viewing glasses that are ISO 12312-2 & CE certified, and the manufacturer is on the American Astronomical Society (AAS) approved list of manufacturers. Here is some information from NASA about safe viewing (https://science.nasa.gov/eclipses/safety/). You will notice in the picture below the glasses we sent home, along with another current "bright spot" - the Wrestling Championship trophies. Go Cougars!

JUST IN CASE: If we have a remote learning day tomorrow, students will be counted as present if they email their homeroom teacher before 10:00 am for attendance and do the work posted in Google Classroom. Students can reach their teachers using Google Meets at the same time as they would normally have class (links in Google Classroom). IF a student is without power or without the ability to participate, just let us know and it will be excused (email your homeroom teacher or call us at 562-7552). Go Cougars (but seriously, enough snow already)

Attention TWKDMS: IF there is a delay tomorrow, we will STILL have the ice fishing trip and Winter Extravaganza! Region 9 has 2 aluminum ice shacks and several portable fabric shelters set up with different activities such as hot chocolate, smores, chili, and education centers. They have portable outhouses and a warming bus staffed with student leaders hosting cribbage and UNO games. There will be a taxi service provided by Region 9, Mexico Fire, and Paris Fire- each transport is assigned a rescue bogan for your safety. The weather looks favorable and the ice is holding at over ten inches. We look forward to seeing you all for a fun-filled day! Buses leave TWKDMS 30 minutes after the start of school. Go Cougars!

With conditions later this week looking favorable, TWKDMS will be working with the Region 9 Outdoor Leadership program to allow students to attend an Outdoor Extravaganza up in Roxbury! Many other Region 9 programs are coming out to support this adventure. They are planning to have snacks- chili, smores, hot chocolate, etc. In addition to ice fishing, there will be a snowshoe relay race. A winter "fun" day is a TWKDMS tradition, and this year Region 9 is kicking it up a notch. Students have a choice for their day's activities, and anyone going onto the ice will be coming home on Monday with a permission slip (and proper winter clothing will be required to attend). Go Cougars!

Today a group of TWKDMS students joined the Region 9 Outdoor Leadership program for a guided ice-fishing experience. Flags were popping and smiles were everywhere. Thank you to Mr. Rainey and Mr. Longley for helping celebrate the achievements of some of our students with this trip, and if the weather holds cold enough we have some exciting opportunities coming up down the road. Go Cougars!

Attention Parents/Guardians: TWKDMS will start the Winter NWEAs on Tuesday, February 6, 2024. Go Cougars!

Attention Parents/Guardians: I can admit that today's remote day snuck up on me. Most students take home school laptops or have access to an electronic device with internet connectivity at home, and those students should try to follow our normal remote learning plan (including sending an attendance email to their homeroom teacher before 10:00 am). If you have a situation where a student is without the ability to participate, their absence will be excused. Just give the school a call at the usual number to let us know: 562-7552. https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1021/TWK_Dirigo_MS/2706394/TWKDMS_Remote_Plan_2023.pdf
