Crusader Nation,

The final countdown has arrived! Teachers and students have four more “wake-ups” left. Students should be reminded to finish the year on a strong, positive note. Making smart behavioral choices, will allow students to enjoy the last week of school with their teachers and classmates. Receiving zeroes for assignments not turned in may result in failing year end grades, which could result in a summer school assignment. In addition, any disciplinary consequences that are outstanding at the end of the school year will need to be served at the beginning of the new school year, whether students are returning to TMS or heading to THS. We’re looking forward to our final Zero Hero celebration tomorrow afternoon. Let’s make this a great last week together at TMS!
