Principal's Weekly Message

October 13, 2017

Dear Tuckahoe Middle School Parents and Guardians,

This week, after hearing campaign speeches from all of the candidates, our students elected class officers.  Congratulations to all participants!  

TMS Open School Morning is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24th.  Parents are invited to attend morning classes (periods 1-4).  Next week, I will provide more specific details about the day.  For now, please mark your calendars for the event.  Visiting hours are 7:45 AM to 11:05 AM.  

Also exciting, we have planned a new field trip for our sixth grade class.  This year we will be bringing our sixth grade students to an outdoor educational center for a fun-filled day of team building and environmental study.  Details about the trip were sent home today, and can be found on our website (in case the paperwork did not make it home).  I’m asking for forms and payment to be retuned to school no later than November 1st.  After reviewing the paperwork, please reach out to me if you have any questions about the trip.  

TMS backpacks have arrived!  A link to the order form is HERE and on the TMS website.  

Please mark your calendars for the following upcoming events:
