    Update of February 14th

    Good Afternoon,

     Today marks the end of the school week for us as all TUSD schools will be closed on Friday, February 15th and Monday, February 19th in honor of President's Day.  Our teachers, counselors, classified personnel, and administrators work hard to provide a first-class educational program to all TMS students. As the principal of TMS, I believe in the power of communication to strengthen the connection between a child's home and his/her school.  The following are just a few ways that our students, and parents, may contact the faculty at TMS.

    The PowerSchool grade portal is an additional way for parents to monitor their child's coursework at school.

    Our teachers' office hours are linked below.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my interactions with students, parents, and our faculty.  The presentations, assemblies, and meetings have enabled me to share many conversations with you and listen to your experiences as a parent of a middle school aged child.  Our conversations with our children always matter! The following link is to an article that features conversations starters for us to use with our children. I know I will be using one or two of these questions with my own children.

    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.
