Please note: We do not do a promotion ceremony for 8th grade. The tradition at TMS is for the students to celebrate with a cook out and carnival.

Next year students will be expected to dress out for HPE. Students are not required to purchase a HPE gear, however it is encouraged. If you wish to have HPE gear, you must order it ahead of time. This can be found on the school link: see at the bottom of the newsletter.

all my best,

What’s Happening in the Library?

The Trailside Library has been closed for the past week due to SOL testing but we are so excited for next week when April Henry will be visiting and talking to our students about writing and how she gets inspiration for her books. Ms. Henry is the author of some of the most popular mystery books in our library and we literally cannot keep her books on the shelves. Some of April Henry’s books will be available for purchase pre-sale and also on the day of her visit. She will be with us on June 1st and all grade levels will get the chance to listen to her speak. Parents are also welcome to attend the presentation. We would like to thank the Trailside PTA for generously covering some of the cost of Ms. Henry’s visit.

Thank you to all who donated beads, rainbow looms, and other bracelet/craft supplies to our library. Our students have enjoyed creating bracelets, keychains, and other items with the supplies.

Overdue emails have gone out and many of our books are being returned but we still have over 600 overdue books. Please ask your student to look around their room, in their backpacks, or any other place where they might keep things. We know sometimes books get placed somewhere and can be forgotten.


All lost and found items are on tables outside the cafeteria. Remaining items will be donated on June 15th.

Order Your School Supplies for next Year

School Supplies Last day to order is June 30th.
