Twin Peaks Middle School

Weekly RAM Newsletter

A Brief Note from Dr. Burke

Dear Ram families,

After a week of minimum days for conferences, we are looking forward to settling back into our normal routine. On Tuesday we host our annual TPMS Club Fair during both lunches. Please encourage your student to attend and to select a club to enrich their middle school experience. And parents, at Twin Peaks the fun is not just limited to student activities, we want you to engage as a community as well. Please purchase your tickets to the Foundation's Fall Fiesta. We are really looking forward to a great night with families at Second Chance on 10/19. Tickets are $20 in advance and $30 at the door. Click here to sign up.

Federal Survey forms went home last week and we need your help to complete, sign and return the form before Friday, October 18th. It is mandatory that the forms be signed and returned whether or not the survey information is filled out. Please remember that these forms are tied to school funding.

Finally this Friday is our October Movie Night in the quad. Tickets are $1 in advance or $2 at the door. There will be fun & games from 6-7pm and the movie begins promptly at 7pm. Want to get in for FREE? Bring a pair of new socks to support the ASES Sock Drive and receive two FREE tickets! This event is open to all students and their families.

That’s it for now. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow and remember it's a 1/3/5 day.

TPMS Foundation's Fall Fiesta

Tickets are now on sale for the Foundation’s Fall Fiesta which takes place on Saturday, October 19th from 6-10pm at Second Chance Brewery. This event is intended to bring our parent community together. Coming from many different elementary schools, it is important that we have an opportunity to come together as a new school community. When parents are engaged it really helps reinforce the message of Ram Pride that we are spreading on campus so I encourage you to attend. But even if you are unable to join us, there are ways to support this event. Please go to to buy tickets and see how you can get involved.
