August 2015

morris-shererWelcome back!

Back to School Night Agenda for Thursday, September 10:

5:00 -5:30 p.m. – Meet the Principal and pick up Schedules (Auditorium and Gym)

5:30 -7:00 p.m. – Parents and students visit classrooms according to schedules (10 minute periods with 4 minute passing)

TJ had a great year with so many accomplishments! We again set the bar very high for our students and they continue to rise to the challenges! We increased our overall attendance by 2.2%. We ended the year with a 91.6% daily attendance rate with the SPF expectation of 90% or higher, as meeting the standard. Tardies held steady at 1.1%. We improved in 14 out of 19 areas we tested for AP and we are holding steady with our ACT scores. We saw great growth in our spring finals overall.

Please click here to read more about successes and expectations for the upcoming school year.

It promises to be another successful year!
