Triton Middle & High Schools Host “Why Triton?” - An Evening of Exploration
Thursday, December 11, 6-8pm
On Thursday, December 11th from 6:00-8:00pm, Triton Middle & High Schools open their doors to parents and students in grades 5 - 9 to learn more about the District and ask the question, “Why Triton?” The schedule of events for the evening includes an opening reception by Principals MacRae and Dawe, small break-out panels, and tours of the schools. The evening will conclude in the high school cafeteria where various school groups, athletic teams, and organizations will be available with supplementary information. Additionally, school counselors, teachers, administrators and other school staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide feedback.
Entering Middle School and High School is an exciting time of change and new opportunities. Come learn about Triton’s core values, beliefs and learning expectations and leave the evening armed with the knowledge to make a confident decision for you and your child. While attending, you will learn more about the district’s curriculum instruction, sports and extracurricular activities, and be able to talk to students and parents of students who are currently attending Triton.
For your convenience, a childcare room will be available for those needing assistance with younger siblings. RSVP for the childcare room prior to the evening is appreciated, but not required. To RSVP, or ask additional questions about the evening, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Please come to this year’s first Coffee with the Principal and High School Administration on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 @ 9:00 am. The meet and greet will take place in the high school media center where you are also invited to view a 10 minute presentation on using the Aspen Family Portal.

Here’s your opportunity to show your support of the newly developing Life Skills/Vocational Training Program at Triton High School by shopping at Whole Foods Market in Andover, MA on Thursday, September 18, 2014.
Whole Foods Market has chosen Triton’s Life Skills Program to be the recipient of their “5% Day”, in which they donate a portion of their profits to help nonprofit organizations in local communities strive to make the world a better place - one with a focus on healthy living, strong community involvement, regard for the environment, where health is a priority, and there is an interest in sustainable organic gardening.
Funding provided by the generosity of Whole Foods would allow “Green City Growers” of Somerville to come to Triton High School on a weekly basis to provide the students with hands on learning gardening experiences – from building raised beds with cold frames for an extended growing season, to building a rainwater catchment system, and erecting “pest control fencing” around the beds. Besides their weekly hands on sessions, they will be providing all materials necessary for the students to begin a lifetime of learning and the joy of growing their own food.
Also that day at Whole Foods, along with the students of Triton will be “Next Step Living” – an organization dedicated to the education of teaching families how to lower their carbon footprints through free home energy assessments. Their Sustainable Energy Education Drive (SEED) is another way for the Life Skills Program to raise funds for their gardening and environmental awareness endeavors.
Your support by shopping at Whole Foods Market in Andover on Thursday, September 18, 2014 would greatly enhance the opportunity for the students of Triton to develop healthy living skills that will last them a lifetime!
Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year. We are all looking forward to a great opening and year ahead.
A few reminders for tomorrow, the first day of classes.
On Tuesday, September 2nd, students in grades 10 - 12 will report directly to their first period class at 7:42 following a DAY 1 schedule.
Students are encouraged to log on to their Aspen accounts to access and record/print their current updated schedules as some changes may have been made. (Remember to change the 'View" to "Full Year")
A very essential reminder for all students is to bring their schedules with them on September 2nd , as you will be reporting to your period B class (DAY 1) at 7:42 am. If you are scheduled for a study hall first period on Tuesday (DAY 1), please report to the cafeteria.
All freshmen, grade 9, will begin their day in the auditorium @ 7:42 for participation in orientation.
There will be a homeroom/advisory period @ 8:39 am on Tuesday, September 2nd. (Homeroom numbers located on the top of the student schedule.)
I look forward to seeing all the smiling faces on Tuesday morning. Have a great weekend!
Welcome Back to the New School Year. Every year brings a sense of new beginnings and a fresh start. I wish you and your child much success this coming year and look forward to your involvement in the many activities happening throughout the year.
You are invited to register with me on a “broadcasting” app, known as REMIND 101. This very simple and basic application provides the ability to send one-way broadcast messages to parents’ phones.
We will use this texting app to send out periodic reminders of school events, notices, reports, and other information that is sometimes helpful on which to receive reminders.
If you wish to register for this app, you can click on this link for directions on how to register.
(In reading this information, replace the word “teacher” with “principal” or “Ms. Dawe”. )
It really is very simple and only takes a few seconds to register.
I look forward to a wonderful year ahead and hope this technology will be beneficial in communication to you.
