Greetings and Welcome to the Tuckahoe Middle School Website. Each year we like to prepare a theme that is the cornerstone of our planning and development for the upcoming year. This year our theme is “Together Again and Ready to Grow.” We appreciate the fact that we will finally be back together again and just as tending to a garden with love and care, so our plants grow healthy, we will tend to the needs of our students and community and work to grow into better learners, friends, and teachers.
While the pandemic is nearly behind us, we are emerging stronger and more ready to live life to the fullest. The old adage is true, from adversity comes strength. As educators we found new strengths, talents, resources, and creative ways to reach our students. We look forward to digging in and utilizing the new “gardening” tools we acquired to help our students flourish in unique and authentic ways. In addition, we continue to recognize the importance of social and emotional development for middle schoolers to “bloom and grow” in a safe and healthy environment. To that end, we will continue with our advisory classes. Students will begin every school day with their advisory teacher as a consistent guide for the entire school year. This teacher will attend to students and families as a watchful and caring gardener while providing extra support, answers for questions, and a safe oasis when challenges arise.
With nearly 1,150 students coming from 38 countries and speaking 25 different languages, we are proud to celebrate our diversity and root ourselves in the rich culture that is Tuckahoe. We embrace the many varieties that make Tuckahoe a unique place and we look forward to sharing what’s happening at Tuckahoe Middle School with you.
This website is designed to keep you informed about everything you need to know for the 2021-2022 school year. Feel free to reach out to me should you have any questions or concerns. My email is email@example.com
