Welcome Letter from TMS
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Toppenish Middle School and the 2020-2021 school year. While we know it is not ideal to be starting this year online via distance learning, we are committed to keeping you all safe while also providing a quality education. Our staff has been working diligently to provide you and your family with the best possible experience in these very trying times. Know that we are doing our best and dedicated to you and your family.
This year we will be starting the school year on a 5 period day semester schedule similar to what the high school has run in the past. Core block classes will be held in the morning session with the afternoon block being shorter Response to Intervention (RTI) classes for students identified as needing additional support. Secondary core classes will alternate with elementary classes allowing secondary students to help support their younger siblings in elementary as needed.
We realize this will be a challenging year for families and our community. We do not take these challenges lightly and will do our very best to ensure you and your child(ren) are supported and cared for. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. Our office is open at limited capacity with social distancing measures implemented. We can also be reached at (509) 865-2730.
Our school motto is "I Know I Can," which takes on even greater importance this year. Together "I Know We Can!"
