On the first day of school, Lily Misterewicz and Ava Matyskiel check out the school's new light fixtures. (We're building suspense by not showing the renovations! See them for yourself.)

Come see the ‘new’ and improved Tinc Road School on 9/20

Tinc Road will hold a ribbon-cutting on Thursday, September 20 to celebrate the completion of a school-wide renovation undertaken during the summer. The ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m.;  all parents and community members are invited.

Fluorescent lights have been replaced throughout the building with whiter, energy-efficient LEDs and new decorative light fixtures which match the color scheme used throughout the building – white, yellow, blue, and burgundy. Hallway and classroom rugs were replaced with new floor tiles and the walls were re-painted. 

Design modifications were also made to the main office and the library to maximize efficiency, and restrooms were renovated.

In addition, all the desks and chairs in the building have been replaced with furniture designed to make student collaboration easier.

Immediately upon arrival on the first day of school, students were shepherded into the gym before going to their classes. Principal Scott Lipson introduced the new Tinc Road to them and spoke about the history they were making by being the first students to enter and learn inside the renovated school. Class by class the students left the gym and experienced the school’s new features.

“They were so excited,” Mr. Lipson said. “What happens within the classroom walls makes a school, that relationship between students and teachers. But it’s important to realize that the physical appearance and attributes of a building can set a tone. The renovation tells students that their learning is important to us and we care about their learning environment.”

After the ribbon-cutting concludes, the school will hold its annual Back-To-School Night. If you can make it that night, check back on 9/21 for photos of the renovations.
