February 2015


February 13, 2014

We continue to be proud of our Spartans and the hard work they’re doing to keep TJ moving from Good to Great. In order to continue such positive trends school and district wide, participating in mandatory state testing is critical to our success.

Some of these tests are coming up during the week of March 9-13. We have created a block schedule that will accommodate both testing and regular classes during that week. Students will attend all classes and will test during their English and Math classes.

Please do your best to avoid scheduling doctors appointments, college visits, etc. during this important time for the TJ community.

Thanks for your continued support!

Mrs. Suzanne Morris-Sherer
