Dear Middle School Families,

I am sending this message again as a reminder of our time capsule community building opportunity. We have received a few of these in the mail, but it would be great if more students participated! 

In addition we have added one more supply pick - up day. You may come on Thursday, 6/11 from 9:00 - 11:00 am. You should also know that if you ordered a yearbook, they will be mailed directly to your home. So, be on the lookout for a package from Herff Jones. 

I also want to express my sorrow over the recent unrest and violence in cities across the country. This thoughtful article was helpful to me as my wife and I discussed what our children were seeing on TV and social media. I hope you find it helpful.

In times of crisis our lens of the world can narrow and examining the future can become difficult. WIth that in mind, on behalf of the TMS staff, I would like to offer the following assignment to the entire student body to be completed on the remaining Fridays of the year. It should not take very long. Please mail it back to us by June 26.  Many people are responsible for its inception, but our ELA department deserves credit for getting it on paper and hashing out the details. Students may reach out to me with any questions at stiefelg@tuckahoeschools.org 

Have a great weekend,

Mr. Stiefel

Here is the project: 

During this unique time, we would like you to take the opportunity to think about and reflect on your experience! 

Directions: Please complete this letter to your future self that will be preserved in a time capsule in the reading garden at Tuckahoe Middle School. Please be thoughtful and thorough in your responses so that years from now you will have something meaningful to memorialize the experience. The assignment can be handwritten or typed. Be sure to add images or photographs to make your time capsule come to life!

Dear future self, 


One way my community unified and came together... 

One of my favorite memories...

One thing I miss most while quarantined... 

One thing I have come to appreciate...

One new skill/ activity that I tried...

One thing I learned about myself...

One thing I am proud that I was able to accomplish/achieve...

One thing I hope to remember to treasure...


Sincerely,


(Your signature)

 

Upon completion, please send this letter back to Tuckahoe Middle School to be preserved within the school time capsule. Be sure to include your name and a return address on the envelope so that in ten years time you will be able to open the letter and reflect on your experiences at the time capsule celebration.
