Friendly reminder to fill out those pledge cards for this year’s Giving Campaign and send it in to your child’s homeroom teacher MONDAY.
The homeroom with the highest number of pledges and the homeroom with the highest dollar amount raised get a FREE PIZZA PARTY.
 So far, Ms KEY’s and Ms BOOTH’s Homerooms are tied in 1ST place for the number of pledges turned in with Morris and Fossa classes trailing shortly behind.
The Homeroom that has pledged the highest amount of dollars is Ms KEY’s class… But Fossa, Booth, Couch and Morris are closing in. Stiff Competition, People! 
If you haven’t heard…This year’s Giving Campaign is called the One2One Initiative and we are raising money to put a cart full of Chromebooks in EVERY TJMS classroom.  
 So far, 68 families have given almost 16,000 dollars
And we say…Thank you!!! 
We still need 265 more Chromebooks and 9 more carts to 100% digitally enable ALL of our TJMS classrooms.
Soooooooo…Stop what you are doing right now…Find the pledge form…Ask your children how they use the Chromebook and give to support this One2One Initiative. 
We need these Chromebooks.  Help us make it happen!
For more information about upcoming sports tryouts and practices, please visit the link below.
In an effort to minimize classroom disruptions this school year, we will be changing how dropped off lunches and forgotten items are delivered to our students. Lunches - students will be given the opportunity to check the office at their lunch time.  Missing work, forgotten items - will be put into homeroom teachers boxes.
Early Dismissal - If your child has an appointment, etc. and will need to be dismissed from school early, please send a note with your child to the office (at start of day) and we will give them a pass for teachers to dismiss them to the office.
Reminder to tryout for any sports programs at TJMS you must have a current physical, concussion form and proof of insurance on file.
Monday is an A day
