News and Reminders

DC Trip Final Student Assembly: Tenth period on Wednesday, February 24th, Shelly Camp and the DC team along with Jenny Terwilliger are planning to meet with the students going to DC and those staying home. Thanks to all the teachers who are helping and to all the chaperones!

Polar Plunge for Special Olympics: Watch me dive into the icy waters of Lake Ontario on Sunday at Noon, or better yet join me! I don’t think we have made it to our goal of $850 yet, so please contribute if you can, even after the break.

Staff Update: Please join me in welcoming Craig Knight back to TCMS. Craig will be returning on Friday, March 4th and will be working alongside Nicole Darling for a two-day transition prior to returning full time on March 8th. I would like to thank Nicole for all she did during Craig’s absence to lead the music and choral programs!

Faculty Meeting: Our next meeting is March 7 and we will be inviting Julie Kopp to present ideas about grading practice, review our tenth period teacher survey results, showcase the empty bowls project and more!

Vacation Building Hours: The building will be open on Tuesday through Friday next week from 7:00 AM until 4:00 PM, but you will need your swipe cards to enter.

Kickball: We are defending our title and going for the “three-peat” on March 2, 2016 at BHS; 6:30 – 8:00 PM! Whether we finish first or last, it doesn’t matter (as long as we finish first…). Please join us for the fun as a player or a cheerleader on the 2nd! Let me know if you can play.
