Introducing the Tinc Road logo

Tinc Road has a new logo. You’ll be seeing a lot more of it next school year on a variety of different things. 

The logo highlights important qualities that students felt represented the spirit of Tinc Road: perseverance, creativity, acceptance, kindness, and tolerance. Inside the Tree of Knowledge at the center of the logo sit symbols of various subjects and a pillar which represents good character.

The logo began as a student competition. Kids submitted their designs and a panel of staff members narrowed down the choices and picked elements from four different submitted logos. Angel Plastina, a fifth-grader, melded them all into a final composition (at right). Angel’s drawing then was used as the source for the final logo that was digitally created by Daniel Sullivan, a graphic designer and son of school nurse Geri Sullivan.

“It was such a great school-wide project that focused on the pillars of good character and highlighted the creativity of our students,” said Scott Lipson, school principal. “We displayed all of their submissions in the front foyer for a few months to show just how proud we were of all their contributions.”

Early in the school year, the staff members who form the school’s character education committee conceived the student-designed logo competition. It was intended as a way to show the world the character of the school and remind students of the traits they should embrace every day. The members of the logo subcommittee that coordinated the contest and design included Mrs. Sullivan and teachers Samantha Darnesto, Kathy Diefes, Cristina DiMaggio, Jennifer Fernandez, and Pam Sexton. 

A day for moms and sons

Approximately 40 students and their mothers recently participated in a PTO-sponsored mother/son kickball day. Kids in all grade levels took part in the games.

"This was a chance for mothers to have fun with their sons in team games," said Scott Lipson, school principal. "It was heartwarming to see the kids cheering on their moms."

Mr. Lipson hopes the mother/son kickball day will become an annual event.

Katie Katsigiannis was the mom who organized the games.
