The Staff and Faculty at Tonaquint Intermediate would like to welcome you and your family to the 2018-2019 School Year. We are committed to do all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student. Our school received our 4th nationally recognized Schools to Watch Award in Washington DC. This award honors schools that advance excellence in Middle Grades. The Schools to Watch organization focuses on Academic Excellence, Developmental Responsiveness, Social Equity and Organizational Structures and Processes. We provide students with a safe, nurturing, and non-threatening learning environment where our teachers design engaging lessons and learning opportunities for students.
The 2018-2019 school year schedule will be on a trimester system. We will have six period class rotations. Each class will last 55 minutes. We will maintain the multi-curriculum teams and the multi-grade level halls. We believe this concept is the best for the young adolescent student.
We believe in the importance of a good home/school partnership to insure success of all our students. Home-school communication is a key factor to building success at school. Please visit our website to find general information about the school including school calendars and events. We look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you for your support and commitment.
We encourage students to come to school “dressed to learn” in appropriate clothing. Information regarding these standard can be found on the district webpage, www.washk12.org, under policy 2200. Please plan ahead by purchasing clothing in compliance with these standards. Students coming to school appropriately attired will greatly enhance the positive learning environment and avoid distractions that could interfere with school success.
We would like to have each of you mark your calendar and be sure to attend the following events:
- The Back to School Night/Tonaquint Picnic for all students and their families will be held on Thursday, August 9th, 2018 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. We will start the meeting in the Gym at 5:00 pm sharp. Remember to bring your student’s class schedule. Please plan to come meet the teachers and join the festivities.
- The first day of school this year will be Monday, August 13, 2018. Get your alarm clocks ready so you’ll be here for the First Bell @ 7:40 a.m. with class starting @ 7:45 a.m. School will be excused @ 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- Have a great summer! We look forward to seeing you in August at Tonaquint Intermediate School. If you have any questions, please call us at 688-2238.
