On Tuesday, October 14th Tarkington School along with Helping Paws is hosting our first annual Cardboard Challenge as a fundraiser for our newly established NEU Tarkington Scholarship. The Cardboard Challenge is a worldwide celebration of child creativity. Students and families will create and build an arcade style game using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. You are welcome to make your game at home and bring it the day of play, October 14th, or you can create it using the collected materials on the build date, October 9th. For information about the inspiration behind this event, click this link: Caine's Arcade. If your chid is interested in participating, return one of the forms below:
Thank You PTA!
Over the summer the Tarkington PTA replaced our school sign with this beautiful new one. This fall, the PSI students will be planning and planting the surrounding garden space to create a welcoming entrance for all Tarkington visitors.
