Greetings TLAM Family!
The 2019-2020 school year is off to an awesome start. We ended the week with an enrollment of 1209 students. If your child has not shown up for school, please make sure they are at school on Monday, August 19th. Thank you for supporting the clear and/or mesh backpack policy. If your child is in need of one, please have them come to the front office. Our Back to School dance will be on Friday, August 23rd at 4:30pm to 6pm. Admission is $5.00. There will be pizza, candy, and soda for sell for $1.00. Back by popular demand, DJ Marvin will be spinning the latest music for our TLAM students. Also, Friday, August 23rd will be our first School Spirit Day. I want to encourage everyone to wear our TLAM “It’s A fAmily AffAir” Spirit shirts on Friday. The Safe Space club will commence meeting this week on Thursday, 8/22. The meeting will be in room 231 from 4:20 until 6:15. Students may be picked up in the back of the school or use the activity bus.
As we are entering week two, please make sure your child is in school every day on time. Students will be taking their baseline assessments for all subjects over the next few weeks. We have run into several issues with the ID machine, but we are hopeful that we can start issuing IDs this week. The Code of Conduct assemblies were completed by the Deans last week. Please make sure your child is following the dress code as written in the Student Code of Conduct. Please make sure if your child is wearing jeans with rips above the knee, he or she must have another garment under the jeans to not be dressed coded. Shorts should be the length of their ID from the knee even with leggings worn. If your child is a car rider and you park across from the school, please walk to the school to pick your child up and then walk back with them. Please do not encourage your child to cross Point Meadows alone without parental supervision.
From the World of Sports, Coach James will host an open gym for Cheerleading on August 21st and August 22nd. Coach Findlay (firstname.lastname@example.org) will have Volleyball tryouts on August 26th. You must have your sports physical turned in to the front office by Friday, August 23rd in order to tryout for Volleyball. The activity bus will start running on August 21st with limited stops. All student athletes must have a sports physical to participate in sports. Sixth grade students can participate in sports. As we continue to build well rounded students, please check out our school website for activities, clubs, and sports offered at Twin Lakes.
