Wildcat Weekly

Vol. 21 Issue #11 October 4 - 8

Welcome back to the weekly! We have enjoyed another great week at TMHS! Thank you parents for all of your support and your help in embracing our campus Tenets:


Tomball Memorial High School Tenet of the week: Act With Integrity.


At TMHS WE BELIEVE how you do anything is how you do everything. We ask all of our TMHS stakeholders to rise to high expectations in how they act each day - through the daily tasks, the monumental life moments, and everything in between. How we carry ourselves in the good times is as important as how we perform in the tough times.

PSAT/SAT Boot Camp

Hello Wildcat Scholars!


TMHS is offering an October PSAT/SAT Boot Camp on Monday, October 11 just before our October 13 PSAT testing day. Seating is limited! This is a timely, low cost opportunity for you to prepare for a great performance on the PSAT. As you know PSAT performance opens the door to scholarship opportunities by being named as a National Merit Scholar. This Boot Camp workshop will be presented by Mastery Prep at the TMHS auditorium from 9:00am to 3:30pm. October 11 is a student holiday so no classes will need to be missed. Pizza lunch will also be provided as part of the Boot Camp. Your cost is only $35 dollars. Registration for all students will begin on Wednesday, September 29 – October 8. Seating is limited!!


Register for the TMHS Oct. 11 PSAT/SAT Boot Camp here.

Student Dress Code

Thank you to all of our parents and students for helping keep our campus in dress code!


We will continue to enforce our dress code policies per the TISD Student handbook with an emphasis continuing on the following items:


- All students must wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Shorts and/or skirts must reach the mid-thigh. Spaghetti straps, strapless, backless, see-through and low-cut tops are not allowed. Tops must cover the midriff.

- All male students must be clean-shaven and may not display any piercings including the ear.

- Students are not allowed to wear hats, bandanas, or other head coverings.

- Student hair must be that of natural color. Students that need to address this particular portion can meet with their Assistant Principal to discuss a solution and timeline.


All dress code policies can be found in the TISD Student Handbook linked HERE.
