We are quickly approaching the end of our first 9 weeks of school! It is amazing how quickly the time flies. I am always reminded that when working with kids, "The days are long, but the years are short!" I have enjoyed getting to know your students. Thank you for sharing them with us!

September Students of the Month
Our students are doing amazing things. Our staff members have chosen a boy and girl member of each grade to be spotlighted for the month. These students will be showcased in our new spot light cases near the front office.

My Closet - Winter Coats
Any student needing a new outfit may also get one for free each semester through "My Closet". Students in grades Pre K through Seniors may come to "shop" by appointment.
TMS athletics is putting a focus on students attending games to support their peers. All middle school students may purchase an athletic pass for all middle school events in the office. The cost is $15.
Being on a team is only one way for students to enjoy competition. We would love to fill the stands to all events, and make Tipton Middle School an intimidating place to play. Eventlink or Tiptonathletics.com is your one-stop shop for athletic schedules.
Please help us increase our attendance to after school events!
