By this time of the school year, student absences add up across all grade levels–especially with flu season in the air! Early dismissals translate into missed time, too. Recent statistics show that missing 1 day each week of school equals 3 years of lost school time over a student’s school career.
What can your family do to promote school attendance?
- Make school a priority for your children, and talk about why
- Keep a healthy school routine at home–healthy meals, plenty of sleep, etc.
- Schedule doctor’s appointments outside of school hours, when possible
- Know your school’s absence policy
- Always contact the school when your child will be absent

YOU did it!
Thanks so much to the following donors, who not only met, but exceeded, our 2019/2020 Patriot Pride Fund goal of $8,500!
The Fund supports TMS programs and activities. With your generosity, we rounded out our Renovation Gift this year. We plan to spend the funds collected over the last 3 years to help the school establish an outdoor classroom space!
A scary-funny crew of 550 students and staff found chills and thrills at our “Fright Night Dance” for Halloween over the weekend, sponsored by the TMS SCA. Amazing costumes filled the gym, with winners including scariest, funniest, best group, and best overall. A DJ entertained with favorite tunes, as students danced, socialized and enjoyed a variety of tasty treats.
Thanks to all who attended and volunteered!

The Patriot Pride Fund–our PTA‘s single annual fundraiser–is off to a great start! With an $8,500 goal, we currently are only $2,300 away from our finish line. With support from our school community, we soon will reach our annual goal.
Rest assured, 100 percent of your contributions supports the programs and events sponsored by our PTA throughout the year for our students, families, and teachers. Not only does this money fund the PTA budget, but it also will provide a renovation gift once our campus-wide TMS construction is complete.
