Help your children maintain their math and problem-solving skills over the summer, when they can lose an average of 2.6 months of math skills. HCPS is partnering with Imagine Learning (formerly TTM) to offer a web-based, summer slide program. Learn the details here: ImagineMathLetter-to-Parents. Parents must register their child by Fri., June 30. The tutorial website will be accessible, upon registration, from Mon., June 19, until Wed., Aug. 9.
Imagine Math is an online math tutoring program that can help students avoid “summer learning loss”. Students will work on a carefully selected set of topics designed to help them maintain the math skills they gained during the school year. Additionally, using Imagine Math in the summer helps to prepare students for the topics they will see when the new school year begins.
Get a head start on your Summer Reading, with a host of suggested books for every grade level and related assignment details.

Seventy-five TMS students walked the track in the fight against cancer during the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” event held at Pocahontas Middle School on Sat., May 6. Our Patriots joined hundreds of other students and staff from area schools to recognize survivors and to honor lives lost to cancer. Special thanks to our own Doug Kasselberg, English teacher, who has led the TMS team in this event for the past 4 years. In addition to raising awareness of cancer among fellow-students, Patriots also raised more than $7000 for the cause.
The Netflix drama, 13 Reasons Why, released at the end of March 2017, is based on Jay Asher’s controversial teen novel of the same name. Netflix recently announced plans to strengthen the current advisory warnings of TV-MA (Mature Audience), due to concerns from educators and mental health experts. The TV-MA rating of the series is due to strong language, intense sexual situations, and intense violence. Programs with TV-MA ratings are specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for children under 17.
To help parents/guardians to engage in conversation with their children about this series and the seriousness of the topics covered, including bullying, inappropriate use of social media, underage drinking, rape and suicide, are the following helpful links:
