We're Back!!

I think we are on to something with this new later start time at the high school!! I have spoken with a multitude of students the past two days and the overwhelming sentiment is that they appreciate the extra time in the morning. The smiles in the photos below are further evidence that students appreciate being back at school and back into a routine.


Enjoy the weekend!

Link crew still working!!

The Titan Link Crew was hard at work decorating freshmen lockers the last few days. I love to see the colorful and creative ways they show our freshmen they are now part of the Thomas Crew! Thanks Link Leaders!

Courtyard Gazebo Complete!

This week we kicked off our school year with a ribbon cutting ceremony for our new student built Gazebo in the main courtyard. A huge shout out to last year's GeoTech class which spent the entire year combining their Geometry, construction and English skills to create this structure that will be enjoyed by Titan for years.


Stop out to the Gazabo next Thursday when you are here for our annual Open House!

Titan Ambassadors!!

This year one of my favorite new groups is the Titan Ambassadors. Last year there were a number of transfer students throughout the year and it became apparent there was a need for student input and support. There are now over 10 official Titan Ambassadors led by senior, Sophia Braithwaite. These upperclassman made a commitment this year to help our new students navigate the school for their first four day rotation at Thomas, connect with them and follow up, and plan events to build community, connectedness, and engagement.


Our ambassadors did a fantastic job yesterday morning- they called new students last week, met them in the student center in the morning, greeted them with Titan swag bags, a smile, and walked many of them to classes and met some for lunch. It's the beginning of something great and kudos to Sophia for finding her voice and advocating for our new students. Sophia is pursuing her Gold Award in Girl Scouts and chose this endeavor for that journey. Thomas will be a better place because of it.
