    Update of 05/31/19:

    Good Afternoon,

    The 2018-2019 school year will be coming to an end on Thursday, June 6th. It is safe to say that most of our students and staff are very excited about the upcoming summer months.  However, my experience in education has taught me that just as many people will be eager to return for a new school year when Tuesday, August 20th rolls around. We are looking forward to the end-of-year activities and all of the joy that accompanies accomplishment.  We are also planning for a very successful 2019-2020 school year and ready to welcome a brand new class of students onto our campus. This will be my final TMS Principal Update for this school year, yet I will continue with these kinds of weekly updates beginning on Friday, August 16th.  Enjoy your summer and we will be ready to welcome you back in August!

    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.

    Your child was given an information booklet to show you.
