French Students Go Elementary

Some eighth graders from Tyrrell visited the Wolcott Elementary Schools to talk to students about the French program in middle school. Fifth graders enjoyed sampling French foods, making Eiffel Tower ornaments, and learning some French words.

St. Nicolas Day Shoes

French students made shoes for St. Nicolas day on December 6th. The tradition in French speaking parts of the world is that nice children will receive treats in shoes left by the fireplace, while those who have been naughty will get sticks.

Holiday "Links" Tyrrell Together

Student Council members hang links on the holiday chain around the cafeteria wall, as part of a contest between grades 6,7, and 8 to see who could add the most links to their part of the chain. All monies raised through the sale of the decorative links go toward more student council sponsored activities.
