Keeping Current with Your Child's Grades and Progress

Dear TMS Families,

As we approach the end of our first semester, We hope December finds you all well. It is important to understand how each of our students are doing throughout the year, and it is critical to reflect on progress to set goals for the next marking period. At the end of January, you will be receiving a report card for the first semester that will report the academic progress of your student in their core and essential (Exploratory) classes. In addition to viewing term-ending grades, we also encourage students and families to regularly (once every week or two) log into “Skyward Family Access” to check attendance and grades.

If you have not logged in to “Family Access”, please take time to do this and review your student(s) grades, assignments, and assessments. A link to the Skyward Family Access Log-in screen can be found at: http://www.tumwater.k12.wa.us/domain/204; click on the “Skyward Web Access” icon.  If you cannot remember your username and/or password, please contact our Registrar, Sally Riddle (360-709-7503).

Check in with your student(s) about how classes are going, and if they are accessing teachers during their OPPS time. We welcome parents/guardians to communicate with staff as needed; we are always open to discussing your child’s progress. If you would like to have access to weekly progress reports, please set that up in Family Access through Skyward by doing the following:

In order to turn on the weekly progress reports in Skyward, log in to Family Access (directions in previous paragraph) for your TMS student, then in the upper right corner, click into “My Account”.  At the bottom of this new screen, you have the option to click if you want daily, weekly, or monthly progress reports. You can also select attendance options on this screen. In the event that electronic progress reports are not an option for your family, please contact our Registrar and request paper progress reports be mailed to you.

Sincerely,

 

Jon Wilcox, Principal  (360) 709-7500
