The Wellness committee is looking for student committee members. This would look great on those college applications. The Wellness committee only meets 3 more times this school year so it is not a huge commitment. For more information please see Mrs. Constantino in the nurse's office.
Parking spaces are only for senior and junior students. If you wish to obtain a parking permit (and meet the set requirements), you will be issued a permit. The cost this school year for a parking permit is $150. All students must first register for a parking permit through CommunityPass at https://register.communitypass.net. You can pay the fee with a credit card or using your checking account through CommunityPass. You will be able to register and pay as of August 13th. See the insert with directions on logging into CommunityPass. After a student has registered for parking on CommunityPass the student should report to the TMHS office with a Xerox copy of their license and a Xerox copy of their registration.
ADVISORY BLOCK DATES
Tuesday, January 28 - Day 7
Tuesday, March 17 - Day 2
The purpose of advisory is to foster a positive school culture and personalize all students’ learning experiences. One of the objectives of Advisory Block is to allow students time to figure out who they are, where they’re headed, and how they’re going to get there. Through advisory, each student has an additional teacher who knows them and can help them navigate high school so that they leave with a meaningful, personalized plan and are prepared for post secondary options.
Advisory Block Days Schedule
Period 1 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM
Period 2 8:34 AM - 9:34 AM
Period 3 9:38 AM - 10:38 AM
