    Greetings TLAM Family!

    To close out our homecoming activities, students are asked to wear their class color on Monday, October 18th. Please see the homecoming flyer for more details. This week, report cards for the first nine weeks will go home and post to FOCUS on Monday, October 18th. We will have our scheduled Flu Clinic on Tuesday, October 19th. If you are interested in your child receiving a flu shot, please complete the attached consent form and return the consent form to Ms. Young in the front office.

    October is National Bullying Prevention Month. As you know, Duval County Public Schools has a zero policy for bullying. In recognition of Bullying Prevention Month, we will have Anti-Bullying Unity Day on Wednesday, October 20th where we will wear “orange” to promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Bullying and conflicts between individuals are two different things.  Bullying is a negative behavior directed by someone exerting power and control over another person. A conflict is a disagreement or argument in which both sides express their views. Bullying behavior is repeated over time where the behavior may include intentional hurtful words and/or actions. There is a real or perceived imbalance of power. Please share this nugget with your child.

    As we transition to the second week of the second nine weeks, please review the attachment to help you to plan accordingly for this week’s activities. This week, we will play our Homecoming game against Southside Middle School on Tuesday, October 19th at 5:30pm. Students are not allowed to remain on campus to attend the football game. They must leave campus at dismissal time and return to campus when the gate opens (5:15pm) for the football game. Students attending the Homecoming dance with a ticket are the only students allowed on campus after dismissal.  If they are not attending the game, then parents please pick them up by 5:30pm in the bus loop.

    Our next SAC/PTSA meeting will be tomorrow, October 18th at 5:30pm in the Media Center. We will have a virtual option, so please send me your email address if you plan to attend the meeting. We will be discussing our school wide fundraiser to remodel our dated media center, marquee, gym floor, and scoreboard. This is a great opportunity for all stakeholders to be a part of this discussion and decision making process at the school level. Here's to an awesome school year...we Are one!
