Parent Survey

Your feedback is requested! Please share your thoughts, feelings and attitudes about your child's school by completing a survey. Please participate! See below for a brief explanation and click on the link to open the survey.

In order to provide programs and services that meet the needs of your family, the Uniondale UFSD would like you to take just a few minutes and complete this online survey.  Your responses will be used to provide educational and fun after school and summer activities to ensure that your children grow up safe and healthy and prepared for success in school and in life.   In addition, parent responses will be used to design activities to help you better support the education of your children including fun activities that you can do together with your children, learning English, and/or learning a different skill to help you advance in your job, find a new job, or just have fun.

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.  The Character Ed Pillar for October is trustworthiness.
     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 May:

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.   I am proud to be a part of a team that works its hardest to make good things happen for our students.
