Dear TJ Spartan students and families,
(haga clic aquí para la versión española)
Welcome back! TJ had a great year with so many accomplishments! We set the bar very high for our students and they did rise to the challenges. We increased our overall attendance by 1.2%, which was the 2nd highest gain in the district- 2nd only to JFK who surpassed us by one tenth of a percent! We ended the year with an 89.4% daily attendance rate. Tardies were decreased by 65%! We’ve had promising finals scores and AP scores, all increases from previous years. We’ve also had a huge increase in our ACT scores!
What’s your favorite…
TV Show? One Tree Hill
Band? Linkin Park. There’s not really a specific reason; I just like their music.
Memory at TJ? Freshman Homecoming. It was really fun.
If you could live in any time period, what would it be? The Roaring Twenties, because it seems like a fun time to live in.
What are two random facts about you?
