A Message from Dr. Donald Humphrey, 
Principal of Turtle Hook Middle School

Greetings THMS Families,
      Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!  I encourage you to take a few moments to explore our website and familiarize yourself with all the information available.  We continue to utilize our ability to share information electronically through our website.  In addition, our Turtle Hook Families will continue to receive "School Messenger" telephone messages informing you of important events.
     Our strong Character Education program will continue moving forward to help our children make good choices. There is a  Character Ed Pillar for each month which staff and students spend some time exploring. We encourage our students to embrace the pillars of Character Education and continue to strive to make THMS a safe place for all to coexist together.
     There are many exciting activities going on at THMS.  We are working hard to bring quality programs and to engage all our students in learning.   We continue to emphasize high expectations for achievement, alignment of the New York State Common Core Standards with our curriculum, and enhanced student/teacher engagement. We will continue our strong relationships with our students and their families.  
Here are some important dates and information to note for the month of  September:

Meetings and become more involved in the THMS Family.

         Communication is the key for home-school connections.  As always, the THMS Building Administration, Ms. Johnson, Mrs. Ritter, and I, are available if you have any comments, questions, or concerns. Please call or stop in to share them with us. 
         My continued thanks to all of you for making Turtle Hook Middle School T.E.R.R.I.F.I.C.
         We look forward to welcoming our incoming 6th grade class and returning 7th and 8th graders.
         Dr. Donald Humphrey
