Principal's Weekly Message

April 20, 2018

Dear Tuckahoe Middle School Parents and Guardians,

We are moving quickly into the final months of the school year.  May and June are traditionally very busy months at TMS and the pattern holds true this year.  I will continue to update and communicate important dates as they approach.

Last week fifteen TMS students participated in the Regional History Bee competition held in East Brunswick,  New Jersey. All of the students did a fantastic job representing Tuckahoe. Three students advanced to the National competition to be held in Atlanta in early June.  Congratulations!

Many students successfully completed the first round of NYS testing this week.  NYS Mathematics Testing will continue on May 1 and 2. We will follow the same procedures as outlined in previous weekly newsletters.

I will be hosting two meetings to review plans for the 7th grade Boston trip with all interested parents on April 26th.  Times and location are below.

The district will hold a School Safety and Security Information Session on Tuesday, April 24 at 7pm in the William E. Cottle Auditorium. All parents/guardians are invited to join Tuckahoe UFSD administrators, security consultants and local law enforcement as they address this important topic. Please note that due to the sensitive nature of this topic, all questions must be submitted in advance via
