Mrs. McGovern

Welcome to full day kindergarten at Falls School.  My name is Tricia McGovern and I am a graduate of Boston College with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I received my Masters Degree in School Counseling from Northeastern University.  I am a North Attleboro native and reside here with my husband and son.  My first teaching job was right here at Falls School teaching first grade.  A few years ago I made the switch to full day kindergarten and I really enjoy the age group.  I am excited to begin another year teaching at Falls.

  • Is the day only academic work?

    Posted by:

    No we take time to practice many fine motor skills, listening, and cooperation with others.  We paint, draw, color, listen, and play together to develop strong skills.

  • Can kindergarten students order lunch?

    Posted by:

    Yes all students can order lunch upon arrival in the morning.  Money can be added to each child's lunch account under My School Bucks on the North Attleboro Schools home page.  I would encourage you to use the account and not send your child in with money.

  • Does the yellow folder go back and forth to school each day?

    Posted by:

    The yellow folder is very important to share information.  I will put classwork and notices inside each day.  Parents can return notices or send me a note by placing it in the folder.  Folders go home and come back to school each day inside your child's backpack.
