Dear Students, Parents/Guardians, Staff, Faculty & Community Members:
I hope that everyone has had a wonderful summer. I also hope that all of the students are anxious to return to school and are ready to learn! At the end of last year and over the summer we said goodbye to some staff. I would like to thank Jean Blackgoat, Howard Paytiamo & Delaine Manuelito for all of their service and wish them well in retirement. In addition Arsenia Balgue, and Andrew Madarang have left us and I wish them well in all of their future endeavors. While it is sad to say goodbye it is always exciting to welcome new staff. I would like to welcome, Mary Ann Clark-Technology and Library EA, Garland Rivera-P.E. Teacher, Carmaletta Nez-Parent Liaison, Elmer Invento-Woodshop Teacher, Shellie Mariano-Sp.Ed. EA, Ronald Serrano-6th Math Teacher, & Melisa Novak-Sp.Ed. Teacher. Welcome to our team and thank you for being an awesome member of our Cougar Team!
In addition as preparations are made to return to school there is no dress code but offensive materials, gang related paraphernalia & immodest clothing will not be permitted. In addition, fidget spinners will not be allowed during instruction time. If seen during class time or assemblies they will be taken away. Cell phones are never allowed, though we know that many students bring them if they are seen they will be confiscated. The school is in no way liable to purchase a replacement for lost, stolen, and broken cell phones and electronics. So please, refrain from bringing them to school. Athletic items, we know many students enjoy brining basketball’s etc. to school, these items are not allowed in the classrooms or halls and will need to be checked into the office and are only for use during lunch. Also, the school is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged athletic equipment and the school will not purchase new replacements for any lost, damaged or stolen items.
By way of important announcements of there are a few major changes this year, early release will no longer be on Monday. Early release has been moved to Wednesday. This is for Tohatchi Elementary, Tohatchi Middle and Tohatchi High. This will start on the first day of school, which is a Wednesday and will continue on throughout the entire year. The only exception will be on delayed start days. If school is delayed due to weather then there will be no early release on that particular Wednesday. In addition, to meet the demands for excellence of student academic achievement I will no longer have meetings unless the meetings are by appointment. The scheduled appointment time for parents for parents will be 7:30 to 8:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, & the second and fourth Wednesday’s of each month. I know it is very important to make time to meet with parents and time will be set aside for all meetings but they will need to be made by appointment. I thank you for your consideration and support in this matter! As always, I am grateful to be a part of this team, Welcome to Tohatchi Middle School and I look forward to another terrific Cougar Year!
Tony Morrison, TOMs Principal
