Summer vacation for students and teachers started on Fri., June 15. Whether your holiday adds up to family travel…summer camp…swimming at your local pool….or other fun things–enjoy and be safe! See you back in the fall!
The bleachers in the Freeman Gym on Monday evening were packed with smiling parents, siblings, and friends of our TMS 8th graders celebrating the end of their middle school careers. Our traditional “Cross-Over Ceremony” featured a full roster of awards and honors for our graduates, acknowledging an impressive lineup of recipients of Honor Roll, the President’s Award, and a host of department awards for outstanding scholarship and accomplishments.
Each 8th grader crossed the stage to shake hands with Principal Greene, Associate Principal DeLoatch, grade-level Counselor Dwayne, and “TMS Teacher of the Year,” Mr. Fritz.
Two packed houses of parents, grandparents, siblings and friends gave resounding applause at the back-to-back performances of “The Wonderful World of Tuckahoe Middle School Chorus” this week. Choral leader, Mrs. Tuck, led her students in an uplifting round of Disney favorites as they sang, danced and frolicked on the Freeman stage. The excitement was as high backstage as it was in the audience, with musicians practicing their steps and warming their voices. Congrats to all performers and their musical mentor, Mrs. Tuck!

Thanks to the participation, support and generosity of our sponsors, players and volunteers, the TMS “2018 Patriot Open” on May 6 was a tremendous success! This annual sporting event raised $5,000 for gym uniforms for our Patriot athletes. Hats off to Coach Thompson for leading up the tournament.
Grade 6 IB students recently enjoyed a Parisian breakfast of croissants, vegetable tarts, fruit and other delectable goodies at a quarterly IB breakfast sponsored by a team of their Moms.
