Weekly Update 11/04/2018
Congratulations to our October T-Wolves of the Month!
In addition to the report card, but approximately a week later, we will send an electronic letter to those who earned Junior Honor Roll and Senior Honor Roll.
We maintain two quarterly honor rolls at Thomas. Students receive points for their quarterly grades:
A = 4 points
B = 3 points
C = 2 points
D = 1 point
F = 0 points
We take great pride in sending these letters to students who have been able to maintain a GPA above 3.25. Students who receive 3.85 or higher and no D's or F's will be placed on "Senior Honors." Those students who receive 3.25 - 3.84 and no F's will be placed on "Junior Honors."
ONE BOOK - ONE SCHOOL
The author Jason Reynolds is coming to Arlington Heights this week and we're excited to meet him at Thomas on Friday afternoon.

ATTENDANCE & TARDY
At the end of each quarter, we will also send home a letter notifying parents of students who have missed more than 5% of the school year or have been tardy for more than 5% of the school year.
"By as early as sixth grade, high truancy rates become a distinct predictor of whether or not a student will graduate from high school."
For this reason, we think it is critical to notify all families that attending school and attending on time is critical to your child's success.

TMS Club Information
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?
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.
