The Washington State Departments of Health and Transportation are conducting a short telephone survey of parents from our school. The survey asks how students travel to and from school. The information will be used to improve student transportation. The survey is voluntary. If you do not want to be called, contact the Department of Health at 1-844-858-7647 prior to May 9, 2016. Please leave the name of your child's school and phone number so they can remove your phone number from the contact list. Please note that the Department of Health does not have your name so they cannot remove you from the contact list unless you leave your phone number and school. Please see the attached 'Frequently Asked Questions' about the Student Travel Survey.

This year, a district committee comprised of English and Special Education teachers in grades 6 - 12 has been reviewing new options for our English/Language Arts curriculum and they will select a new curriculum for grades 9 - 12 starting in the 2016-2017 school year. We will select a new ELA curriculum for grades 6 - 8 next year for use starting in the 2017 - 2018 school year. We invite you to preview the top three curriculum options (SpringBoard, My Perspectives, and Collections) and provide feedback at a parent meeting on April 20th from 6:00 - 7:00 pm at the Tumwater District Office at 621 Linwood Ave. SW. Samples of each curriculum will also be on display in the secondary school libraries beginning after Spring Break and continuing for a few week. For questions, please contact Roz Thompson at 360-709-7038 or email@example.com
Tuesday March 29th the High School Counselors will be here at TMS to assist our 8th graders in registering for high school. Last week students were given the BHHS Course Catalog to look at with their parents. Students were asked to make selections which they will then use to schedule their courses for the fall. Get a good nights sleep, eat a good breakfast and come to school ready for a busy and important day!

Family Access is an easy way to keep track of your student's school information! From assignments and attendance to lunch accounts, your pre-assigned log-in and passwords takes you directly into the Family Access & Gradebook program and helps you stay connected. If you have not already started using this great tool, please contact Sally Riddle at 709-7503 for your log-in and password information so you can start using this program today! Talk to your student about their 'Student Access' program. They have the same ability to check on assignments and keep track of due-dates.
