Williams' Wall

Hi TJL Families!

Thank you for visiting our TJL Webpage! 

We had a great kickoff to our winter concert season with our Grade 5 Winter Concert!  During this concert, performances were made by our Grade 5 Band, Grade 5 Orchestra and Grade 5 Chorus.  Our students and staff worked very hard to prepare for this event and the concert was a huge success!  Thank you to everyone who came out to join us.  We hope you had as much fun as we did!


We had a wonderful Computer Science Education Week!  Please see the following information from Mrs. Washington regarding some useful resources that your family can utilize at home this week (or any other time that you'd like)!

Computer Science Resources

KidOYO - Coding Platform for students in grades 3-12. 

Google Arts and Culture - A collection of art and cultural content from around the world

CS Unplugged - CS Unplugged is a collection of free teaching material that teaches Computer Science through engaging games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons, and lots of running around. - Free online Coding Platform. Students in grades K-5 can log on through Clever.


Student report cards are available on the Parent Portal for the first trimester.  For information regarding how to access your child's report card, please view this brief video prepared by Mrs. Washington:

Our Parent Literacy Workshop was a big success.  Thank you to Dr. DeLorenzo and our wonderful teachers (Mrs. Armstrong, Ms. Perfall, Mrs. Turrini and Mrs. Teape) for presenting and thank you to all of the parents who attended.  We hope that the night was both informative and fun for you! 



We also had a wonderful Grade 3 Parent Literacy Night as well! During this event, the students and their parents rotated through six stations that focused on different reading strategies that students can use at home.  We were also very fortunate to have Mrs. Moisan, from the Harborfields Public Library, in attendance as well.  It was a fun and engaging time for all involved!  A big thank you to Mrs. Bowles, Mrs. Mancuso, Ms. Schaefer, Ms. Tyrie, and Mrs. Gutmann for coordinating the event and running the stations. 


Our No Place for Hate committee meetings have been going great!  We are so fortunate to have over 40 students on this committee as well as many parents and staff members!  We are looking forward to planning and implementing our building-wide projects throughout the school year!



We had a lot of fun during our WizFit Challenge!  Students participated in both live events and virtual events to learn about the importance of being active.  With this, our students completed the designated "WizFit" challenges during PE.  The students did an amazing job and had a wonderful "Finale Celebration" with members of the Harlem Wizards.

We are so proud of all of our students for their outstanding participation and we hope that everyone had fun during the basketball games with the Harlem Wizards!



We are happy to share that our construction process is picking up speed!  The front of the building is all framed out and the "build" has begun!  We couldn't be more excited about the progress that will happen over the next few weeks.  We can't thank you enough for all of your continued support during arrival and dismissal.


For more information about this project, as well as updated procedures for arrival, dismissal and visitation to the building, please see the attached letter that was sent out to families prior to the start of the school year.
