    Update of 04/12/19:

    Good Afternoon,

    Spring break is upon us and the final days of the 2018-2019 school year will be here before we know it.  I encourage our students, staff, and TMS families to enjoy their time away from the responsibilities of school.  Our focus, communication, and willingness to finish what we have started will be essential to a successful conclusion of the school year.  I am looking forward to a strong finish!

    “If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.” ~ Tom Peters  (Quote submitted by Delaney Stetz - 8th grade student at TMS)

    The TMS Kindness Campaign was led by our leadership students and Mrs. Mac for this past week.  Our entire student body and faculty were challenged to perform specific acts of kindness on each of the days.  Additionally, many of us wore blue on Tuesday as a sign of our unified stance against bullying. The grand finale of this week was the delivery of “Mighty Messages” which were kind messages that our students and staff wrote to another person on campus.  I’d like to personally thank each and every person on our campus who participated in this campaign. Your kindness made a difference.

    Cherish Each Day,

    Andy Burnett

    GREAT program comes to TMS

    We have a wonderful opportunity involving our School Resource Officer, Deputy Munoz, and the GREAT program.  GREAT stands for Gang Resistance Education and Training. The goal of this program is to create a culture of respect within our school/community.  This program is aimed towards 6th grade students. The program is not just about gangs. It’s aim is to teach kids how to resist peer pressure, stay out of trouble, deal with bullying etc.  The program is prevention/skills based. The students will be involved in scenarios on how to make positive decisions.

    The program takes place in Elective Classes once a week for 13 sessions.
