Vol. 21 Issue #15 November 1 - 5
We faced much adversity this week with events beyond our control at TMHS. Our students and staff exceeded expectations and rose above the challenges we faced. While we know and strive to prepare our student body to be great in all aspects, a quote by Andy Andrews may provide the perfect description of how we can view our challenging week:
"Adversity is preparation for greatness."
