Veterans Day Recognition

Veterans Day is rapidly approaching. Toll Gate Middle School would like to take the opportunity to recognize and honor those who have served or are currently serving our country in the armed services. We are asking that you fill out the form below and have your son/daughter return it to school by Thursday, October 29. If you have a friend or a family member who is currently serving or who has served our country, please write his/her name, the war they fought in (if applicable), the military branch served under, and the name of your Toll Gate student. A star will be made to honor all names returned to us by October 29. The stars will then be placed on the windows of the Media Center November 11. Thanks for your support of this project.

A message from Dr. Jackson

Each week we are reminding families that it is vitally important that all students log into their attendance in Infinite Campus and complete their assigned classroom work in Google Classroom daily. If your student forgets to check-in for their daily attendance, they should notify their homeroom teacher. We are asking our parents to please assist us in monitoring check-ins on virtual learning days. Parents may view their child's attendance through the Parent Portal.
