BE THE GOOD - #TMSBETHEGOOD

Good morning, TMS Community!


The picture above is our excited group of students who are learning the tools to record and edit the morning announcements. Student news at Thomas is the best! If you have time you can watch the news that is produced for the TMS students by visiting this link - go to "Announcements & Links" to view the morning announcements. Let us know what you think!


You can also keep up-to-date on the learning in and around Thomas by visiting our Twitter account by clicking on this link. We love promoting the learning taking place in Thomas and celebrating our students and staff. You can participate, too!


This evening we are celebrating four teachers for earning tenure in the district. Congratulations to Kristen Christensen (Math), Meghan Grell (Reading Intervention), Mark Hocin (Science), and Colleen Vravick (Spanish)!


Don't forget to encourage your children to participate in the activities at Thomas. You can see what is taking place by visiting the Thomas Calendar. I recommend looking at the "Day" view for ease of reading all that is taking place after school.


Be The Good!
