California Healthy Kids Survey

Beginning the week of February 15, 7th grade students will take the California Healthy Kids Survey during their history class. This is an online, voluntary and anonymous survey that is designed to obtain information from the students about their knowledge, attitudes and behavior about things that affect learning.  It deals with such issues as truancy, safety, harassment, substance use, school connectedness, and learning supports.


Students will receive permission slips during the week of February 1 and they must be returned by February 11 if you wish that your student NOT take the survey.  A copy of the survey is available for viewing in the office in both English and Spanish.


If you have any questions about the survey, please call Ms. Benson at 434-5813 or Mrs. Nancy Needham (district coordinator) at 434-4066.

Uke Club Big Hit at Cal Poly

Uke Club Big Hit at Cal Poly

The TMS Ukulele Club had the opportunity to perform at Cal Poly with the Wellington Ukulele Orchestra last Friday night, January 29th. The TMS students also packed the Cohan Center lobby with concert-goers before the show, performing a set of songs they have been practicing throughout the year. The highlight of the night was when the TMS group joined the Wellington Ukulele Orchestra on stage to perform a song. You will also be able to see the TMS Ukulele Club perform one of their many hits at this year's talent show at the end of February.
