Take Your Parents To Lunch Day is Wed. 10/11

On Wednesday, October 11, 2017, students at Terrace Middle School are encouraged to invite their parent(s)/guardian(s) to eat lunch with them at school. The featured menu item is Tamale Pie - yum, yum - and we've adjusted lunch start times just a bit to accommodate the extra traffic we're expecting on this special day. Students in grades 4/5 will begin their lunch period at 11:15, students in grade 6 will begin theirs at 11:45, and students in grades 7/8 will remain at their start time of 12:45. No need to RSVP, but please sign into the office for a Visitor's Badge before joining your child for lunch. Thank you!
