April 2015

Greetings, Spartan Families!

There are many important and exciting things going on as we ramp up to the end of the year. Below are several key dates that we want families to know about, so read on for more information.

Seniors- April 16th is your Senior Panoramic photo! Be here for that important day!!!

On April 28th, juniors will be taking the ACT test in the morning. All seniors in jeopardy of not having 92% attendance will be invited to attend that day for four hours (same duration as the test), and will use room 34 for study hall time. Apex seniors will be invited to come work with Ms. Spivey during that same timeframe, but no other students will be allowed in the building that day.

On May 27th from 5:30-7:30 pm we will be hosting an Orientation Night for incoming 9th graders. All students will be tested for correct math placement. Many TJ groups will be present to talk about various aspects of TJ life:
-PTO will be there to talk about volunteer opportunities
-current students will be there to talk about sports, electives and clubs
-Admininstration will talk about how to be a Spartan (daily expectations)
-Members of the Center for Communication Technology Magnet (CCTM) will be there to talk about the program

Incoming students will get schedules, get a general overview of their upcoming life as Spartans! There will also be an opportunity to sign up for 9th grade academy.The TJ Paint Bucket Challenge is underway and making gains, but we’re still hoping for many donations from families! Please visit the library – the painting has been done and looks great, but we still need cool hip furniture for students to use while studying. Please click here to donate!

Thanks for all that you do to keep TJ moving from Good to Great!

Mrs. Suzanne Morris-Sherer
Principal
