Starting A Chain Reaction of Kindness Here at PTMS!
 
As a part of the Rachel's Challenge Program and our FOR Club, we want to start a chain reaction of kindness around the school.   We want each of our students to record the times that you really go out of your way to do something nice for someone else or witness someone else doing something kind for someone else.  We aren't just looking for things like giving someone a pencil, although that is kind, but we are hoping you will think bigger than that and go out of your way to be kind to people.
 
In each homeroom, there are pieces of colored paper that will be used to record your acts of kindness or when you witness others helping to spread acts of kindness.   Each of our 7th and 8th grade teams has been assigned a different color paper.  We want you to record your acts of kindness on these chain links of paper.  We want your acts of kindness to be sincere and genuine.   Hopefully, others will take notice and it will inspire them to do the same.   You never know....you might just start a chain reaction.

Parents:  Keep Collecting Those Box Tops!!

Parents & Students:  The collection of Box Tops continues.   The PTMS PTA is asking all students to bring in Box Tops and submit them to their homeroom teacher using the collection sheet from the PTA web page or to simply use an envelope or sandwich bag with their name, homeroom number and grade on it.   

There will also be an extra collection box located in the PTMS front entrance lobby if a student or parent wishes to drop off their Box Tops.

Bring those Box Tops in!


Reminders:
 
*If you have an early dismissal you are to report to the office at your dismissal time. We cannot call the classroom.

*If you are planning to walk after school, you need to have a District Walker form completed and signed by a parent. This form should be turned in to Mrs. B in the office in the morning.

Lost & Found: The PTMS Lost & Found has many items in it, so please be sure to check the Lost and Found if you are missing any items. It is located next to the gym. Ask a custodian for assistance if the door is locked.

*Absent Excuses need to be turned in within 3 days of the absence.
 
TO ALL PARENTS:  DROP OFF PROCEDURES FOR LEAVING ITEMS at PTMS:

Dear Parents:  If you are a parent that is new to the middle school, we have specific procedures in place for parents when they would like to leave items for students.  Parents can leave items in the main vestibule of the building.   There will be a sign in sheet for items and we ask that parents please sign those items in.  This applies to items such as (ex: forgotten textbook, notebook, lunch money, bagged lunch, items of clothing, etc.)  Bigger items such as field hockey equipment, lacrosse gear, or a  musical instrument can still be brought directly into the main office. Simply press the buzzer and state your reason for dropping off an item.

Parents:  Please remind your child that we cannot call the classroom for them to retrieve their forgotten items.  Students should check for items in the main office.  In our main office, we have a shelving unit with bins that we use to keep and store items for students.  Students have been previously instructed to check these bins for their forgotten articles or items periodically throughout the school day.   Thank you.
