Wildcat Weekly

Vol. 21 Issue #14 October 25-29

Welcome back to the weekly! We have enjoyed another great week at TMHS! Please take a moment to read through this week's message from our Principal, Dr. Jeff Bailey:


Hello Wildcats!


We are half way through the first semester and are excited about all of the amazing things that have happened on our campus in such a short period of time. Our students, parents, staff and community have had the opportunity to experience and be a part of Senior Sunrise, Meet the Wildcats, Rock The block, Open House, Homecoming, PSAT, Senior Picnic and much much more. Our students and staff have been working hard and we are excited about the opportunities ahead of us. As always we encourage everyone to be actively engaged with our campus throughout the year. Please make sure you stay up to date on everything happening at TMHS by checking the Wildcat Weekly that goes out every Saturday morning along with following us on Twitter and Facebook.


- Dr. Bailey
