Trexler Middle School - Promoting Excellence

The First Week of School

We had a really great week. It was nice to see many of our returning students come in with big smiles and we enjoyed welcoming our new students. Some things to remember:


  1. Please make sure you pay all of your fees and review and sign all the forms sent out this week.
  2. If you ever have any questions you can contact the teacher or consult the school website.
  3. To check your child's grades sign up for Parent Portal.
  4. Safety and security is our first priority at TMS. To ensure that we provide the safest school campus possible we conducted 4 different emergency drills last week. We did a fire drill, tornado drill, lock down drill and evacuation drill.

Lunch on the Lawn

Due to Tropical Storm Hermine, the 6th grade Lunch on the Lawn was postponed. The new date is going to be Friday, September 9th at 12:15. All visitors should check in at the front office and bring a chair or a blanket to sit on. Hot dogs will be served for free to the students and parents can eat for $3.00.

We will have our first PTO meeting on Thursday, September 8th at 6:00 in the cafeteria.

AVID Contract Signing Night

AVID Contract Signing Night will be on Thursday, September 8th starting at 6:45. Please join us for a great ceremony where students will officially begin their AVID journey for the 2016-2017 school year. Light refreshments will be served.

The best way to keep up with your child's grades is to sign up for Parent Portal. In order to do this you will need to come to the school and show a valid government issued photo ID. If already have any account from last year, it is still active.
