Welcome back to the weekly! We have enjoyed another great week at TMHS! Thank you parents for all of your support and your help in embracing an important one of our Tenets:

Tomball Memorial High School Tenet of the week: Confidence.

When prepared, confidence soars, building better versions of each individual and the collective group.
