From the Principal
Greetings Parents and Students!
WOW! The Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays are already here and we are nearing the end of our first semester of school. Our teachers and students have been busy working hard toward meeting our school reading, math and other goals; especially preparing students to demonstrate proficiency on the Standards Based Assessments which will be administered in the Spring 2014.
I am very proud of all our students also sixty six of our students made the 1st Quarter Honor Roll. These students received a grade point average of 3.0 or above (A's and B's) in all six of their classes. Congratulations Students and Parents! We hope to have more for 1st Semester, which is 1st Quarter and 2nd Quarter combined.
I would like to thank all of our parents who attended the Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences on October 22, 2013. Our total parent attendance was GREAT at 59% which was 152 out of 256 total students enrolled. We surpassed our previous best record which was 53% in the Fall 2011. Being involved in your child's education is very important and we appreciate your support.
TMS had a successful Fall sports season. Our football and volleyball teams showed a lot of heart and character this season. They learned a lot and improved on their skills. We are proud of them for all their efforts. Thanks to all the Student-athletes, Coaches, Parents and Teachers for all the support you gave to our students. Basketball is now in full swing as we have games starting up for both boys and girls ranging from 6th through 8th graders.
Along with our school District, we have implemented the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The standards replace the New Mexico Standards and are based on a set of National Standards across the U.S. The CCSS focuses on Literacy and Math skills/concepts that are more challenging and aligned to college and work expectations. They will also require our students to apply their knowledge using critical thinking skills in their Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening in all of their classes.
If you have any questions about the common core or any other school matter, please give us a call at 505-721-4600.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all at our school events.
Have a Safe, Fun and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
