As you have probably heard, there has been such an extraordinary response to the needs of Warren, the SES therapy dog, that the fund raising target has been achieved. Thank you all for your support and for contributing to his health and well-being!
Warren is a fully trained therapy dog. He works at Salisbury ES under the guidance of special education teacher Jennifer Caliri, who introduced the concept of a therapy dog to the district. Warren’s role it to provide a calming support for students – particularly those with emotional and behavioral difficulties.
A Salisbury mom describes Warren’s impact on the school as follows:
“I could hear his wails outside, through two doors. It was more than apparent that this child was sincerely anxious, and stressed about attending school. His mom, exhausted and exasperated, tried bringing the child into the building. An older child, he kept crying & kicking, fighting her every move. It wasn’t long that our social worker, assist principal, special ed teacher were in attempt to sooth this child. We have an amazing team- but it was Warren. That little boy sat in the foyer of the school in tears, and Warren in his silent way nestled right next to him, put his loving head on the boy’s lap. The boy began to pet him and within minutes you could see the stress dissipating. Shortly thereafter Warren walked with the boy to his classroom, in peace and calm spirit. There are countless stories and examples of the positive effects of Warren, specifically-Warren has on our school.”
Warren is being treated for a cancer, which vets believe to be treatable. He will lose an eye, but will still be able to work.
We need to raise about $7,000 to cover the costs of surgery and related treatment.

Over the course of this year the district has been reviewing, piloting , and observing a number of K-8 Math programs that align with the revised state Math Framework that was adopted by the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education in 2011. Last week the Math Program Adoption Committee led four information sessions for parents so that they could learn about the recommendation of the Math in Focus program to the Superintendent-of-Schools. Assemblies were held at each elementary school as well as the Middle School where the following PowerPoint presentation was shown.
Consider these mathematics problems:
1. Bay Street has from 2 through 15 houses, numbered 1,2,3, and so on. Mr. Sullivan lives in one of the houses. The sum of all the house numbers less than his equals the sum of all the house numbers greater than his. How many houses are on Bay Street?
2. Mr. Jackson was born on January 1, 1970. His daughter Lea was born on January 1, 1992. In what year was Mr. Jackson exactly three times as old as Lea?
Fifth and sixth grade students from Triton Regional School District solved these, and many other mathematics problems during the second of two district math meets on April 14th. The Salisbury Elementary School team placed first in both of the meets. Congratulations to the Salisbury team, as well as the top scorers of the meet and to all of the math team participants.
Individual Top Scorers of the Meet:
- Gillian Pike (SES)
- Samantha Mariniello (PGS)

The Triton District’s annual District Arts Festival will be held Thursday, March 12, 2015.
Student musicians from the elementary schools will travel to the Triton campus in the morning, and spend the day making music, learning theater techniques, and seeing presentations from their high school and middle school counterparts.
Art work from all levels will be on display throughout the day, as well.
Doors open to the public at 5:00 for the art exhibit, which will include student demonstrations and “make and take” stations along with the art on display.
At 6, the Triton Winter Percussion and Winter Guard will present their competitive routines and take some questions.
Finally, the evening culminates with a concert, in which bands and choirs from all levels will perform. We will also hear pieces from our massed choirs and bands. The concert begins at 7:00, is free of admission charge, and all are welcome.
We hope many in our communities will come and join us for the wonderful and inspiring event.
