TIS gearing up for end-of-the-year open house

TROY — The Troy Intermediate School is trying something different with its annual open house that will shine the spotlight more on student achievements from throughout the year.

“We’re very excited about this. This is a new thing that we’re trying,” said TIS Principal Mary Abreu. “Open houses have traditionally been at the beginning of the year — a meet-and-greet type of thing. We didn’t do that this year. We opted to do an open house at the end of the year where student works could be showcased.”

Visitors will be able to see the poetry books made by the third-grade class, along with their newly-hatched chicks, or stop in a poetry cafe created by the fourth grade and see the books they created. There will also be geocities on display by the fifth grade and castles by the sixth grade.

“We will have displays throughout the building and, in addition, each teacher will have special things that have occurred throughout the year in their classrooms,” said Abreu. “I think it will be a great night.”

The open house will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on May 19.

“We’re very excited about it, and hope to see you all pass through and take a gander,” said Abreu.
