Please remember that students should also have a good night’s sleep, as well as a healthy breakfast.  Together, these are key to your children’s success.  Breakfast is served at Tilton every day at 8:30 am in the cafeteria.

Dismissal Procedures on Grove Street: Please find a designated parking space on Grove Street or in the school’s parking lot.  Most of the snow has melted and we now have plenty of parking spaces.
The 2014-2015 School Goal at Tilton School is to develop proficient writers.  Teachers are working together to assure that our students become skillful writers.  Children are given writing instruction and practice in writing on a daily basis and all staff members are involved in helping our young children become better writers.  We’re asking children to write in a variety of forms (letters, essays, stories, etc.) and for a variety of purposes (to inform, persuade, describe, etc.).   What matters most in writing are words, sentences and ideas.  Keep in mind that perfection, with regards to mechanics, is a skill that develops slowly.  Try to be patient with your young writer, writing for real purposes is rewarding and takes lots of practice.  Here are some things to do at home to enhance writing skills; share letters from friends and relatives, help with grocery lists, send birthday cards, take down phone messages, prepare invitations for family parties and write thank you notes.
Quick reminder about late arrivals – the school day begins at 9:00 A.M.  Though your child is not marked tardy until 9:15, it is important that instruction be able to begin promptly at 9:00. Lateness is disruptive to your child and to the entire class. Any child entering the building after 9:15 A.M. should go directly to the Main Office to obtain a late pass. All lateness will be noted on the child’s permanent record.  Please note, parents may not accompany their child to their classroom.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the main office at Tilton School at (978) 374-3475.

  • Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders


    “In 2005, Team Haverhill was founded to make Haverhill a better place to live, learn, work and play. We’ve dreamed big and accomplished a lot. To celebrate our success we’re going to do what we do best – help build up our community.

    In recognition of our tenth year of service, Team Haverhill is sponsoring ten “mini-projects”– ways we can make a difference in our community with a little bit of time (one day or less) and a little bit of money ($150 or less).” (from: http://teamhaverhill.org/projects/community/10-for-10-10-small-projects-for-2015/)

    Mrs Perry’s first grade class was one of the winning proposals. It was titled “Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders” which focused on reaching out to our community leaders through letter writing to share with them the class’s favorite children’s books and to find out what their favorite book was when they were in first grade.  Through the grant, they were able to purchase the community leaders’ favorite children’s books and donate them in their honor to the Haverhill Public Library. The community leaders were then invited to Mrs. Perry’s class to hear summaries prepared and presented by the students. Superintendent Jim Scully also donated two books to the class, one of which he then read aloud to the students-Dragons love Tacos by Ido Turgeman. The students LOVED it!

  • Earth Day!

    Students in Mrs. Perry’s first grade, along with our PTO president Heather Ray,  planted flowers outside of the school to honor Earth Day. Members of our Discovery Club also jumped into action cleaning out any trash left behind once the record snowfall finally melted! Great job making our school look beautiful!
