8TH GRADE HAPPENINGS
The PTSO had their first meeting this week and we are looking forward to a great year! Our next meeting takes place on Wednesday, October 9, at 5:30 in the TJMS Flex Room, please join us! Our first event is a giveback night this Monday, September 16th at Chipotle from 5:00-9:00. How can you help? Take the family out to dinner! You DO NOT need a flier, BUT you DO need to mention TJMS. TJMS gets 33% proceeds of sales. Bring your friends and family!
Our next event is the Great TJMS Tailgate co-chaired with the TJMS Student Council on September 24th from 3:00-4:15 behind TJMS. This is a fun-filled after school event with music, food, and entertainment. Students and families are welcome! After the event, we can either head over to the TJMS volleyball game to cheer on our team, or walk after to see the TJMS football teams take on Willowcreek. We are looking for help with this event, both donations and time.
Please see link below to participate! If you are interested in volunteering at anytime this year, please make sure you have a CURRENT background check on file with VCS.
