Principal's Weekly Message

February 16, 2018

Dear Tuckahoe Middle School Parents and Guardians,

We have had a busy week here at TMS with students working diligently to finish assignments before the Winter Recess.

Our Science Olympiad team will be competing in the Lower Hudson Valley Regional Competition on Saturday, March 3rd.  The team has been putting in countless hours to prepare for the 20 events.  They will be competing against approximately 25 local schools.  We wish them luck!

As many of you know, the district partnered with the Writing Revolution to enhance our delivery of writing instruction.  The work on this initiative has continued this year.  Currently, our Writing Revolution liaisons are meeting with their colleagues in all content areas to ensure that strategies from the writing process are utilized in their respective classes. Additionally, we have continued to improve the selection of books in the library as well as in classroom libraries to support matching students with books that align to reading interests and levels (Student Choice Reading Program).  

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Winter Recess next week.  School will be back in session on Monday, February 26th.
