Traditions are important to TSS. We work hard at school, but we also like to have fun. TSS traditions have become a part of our daily and yearly routine and promote a sense of community within our school. These all-school traditions have evolved over our 38 years of history and contribute to everyone’s sense of belonging.
Lower School and Upper School Community Meetings are held monthly and are designed to foster a sense of community by bringing students and teachers together in Tavormina Hall. Announcements, upcoming events, the results of school sporting events, and individual student accomplishments are reported at this time. We also highlight the children’s achievements outside of school, so that they may be recognized before their peers.
This beloved school-wide tradition happens in the fall and spring sports season.
Winter Festivities: Ice Skating Party & Ben's Bells
On the last day of school before the December vacation, the school community comes together for an ice skating party. It’s a wonderful way to play, have fun, and celebrate before the winter break.
TSS’ location by Long Island Sound allows us to end the school year with Beach Day. Held during the last week of school, students and faculty head to the beach in Fairfield for a day of swimming, games, and a barbecue.
