Message From Guidance

September is a busy time in the Counselor's Office!

We are preparing to kick off FOR Council (TMS character council). September 3rd we will have sign ups during students lunch shifts down in the cafeteria and canteen, we are looking for students who are looking to make a positive difference in other students lives, as well as their own!

New Student Group has been meeting now for two weeks and we look forward to meeting for two more sessions as well as our New Student Group celebration!


Check It Out at TMS Library!

 

All three grades have visited the library, reviewed library procedures, and checked out books.  Students stamped the due date so they know when to return or renew to avoid overdue fines.  

 

Epsilon  Beta - Next meeting is Tuesday morning, Sept 17 at 7:10 am.  We will discuss Teen Read Week coming in October and assign shelves.

 

Battle of the Books - The first meeting is Wednesday morning, Sept 18 at 7:15 am.  We will create our teams and check out books.  Don't worry if you don't have a team - we will find a group for you to join.
