Principal's Weekly Message

June 14, 2018

Dear Tuckahoe Middle School Parents and Guardians,

This week’s newsletter is arriving a day early because a number announcements pertain to Friday, June 15th.

Friday, June 15 is the annual PTA Color Wars event.  Students will spend the afternoon competing in a number of outdoor games and sports.   Lunch in the cafeteria will be shifted about 30 minutes earlier so that we can organize the events and have time to complete all competitions.  Please make sure that all students are wearing sneakers, comfortable clothing, and sunscreen. Water and ice cream will be provided. Students will be dismissed at 2:30 pm.  

Also on Friday, June 15, the PTA will host the Eighth Grade Dinner from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  Immediately after, there will be a middle school dance (open to grades 6,7,8) in the Gym from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  Permission slips are required to attend the dance. Permission slips should be returned to Ms. Serra before the end of the school day on Friday.     

On Monday, June 18 the our select orchestra will be performing in the new Reading Garden from 5:30 pm until 6:15 pm, prior to the Eighth Grade Awards Ceremony.  If you are planning to attend the Awards Ceremony, please come a little early to hear our students perform.

Our Government Organization had a wonderful turnout at the carwash last weekend.  Please see the website for pictures. Thank you to all those who participated.

Please refer to the June schedule posted on the website for details about the final weeks of school.  Also, note that dismissal will be at 11:00 am on Thursday June 21, and at 9:00 am on Friday, June 22.  

Last week I mentioned the names of students who participated in the National History Bee competition in Atlanta, GA on June 1.  I accidentally omitted the names of two competitors, Lauren and Marley Watts. Congratulations to the Watts’ as well.
