TMS Club Information

Please click on this link to view the latest information on Thomas clubs!


If your child does not see a club they are interested in or they want to consider starting a new club please have them talk with their homeroom teacher about completing a NEW CLUB PROPOSAL form.

Absent & Upcoming Absences? Want to request homework?

If your child has been absent or they have a planned absence in the future please begin to check your child's Schoology account. We have noticed that when parents request homework from teachers they are often referring parents back to the Schoology page where most of the work has been uploaded and accessible to your child when they are feeling well and ready to begin making up the work they missed.


You will no longer need to call the office to request work that has been missed. Instead, you can stay up-to-date by logging into Schoology. We do not expect your child to complete the work while they are absent because we anticipate they are sick and that is the reason they are home. When they are feeling better and ready to begin making up the work it will be available on Schoology. If you are not confident that the work is available on Schoology please email the teacher directly to inquire about what homework specifically needs to be made up.


Thank you!

Brian
