Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year here at Tropico Middle School! For those of you I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is Nat Adams, I will be your principal. I look forward to working with you this coming year and building on what is already a great school with an excellent faculty and staff.
We have many new faces, both students and staff. We have new buildings and new laptops. I am confident that this will be an amazing year for all involved. I want to share with you all the expectations we have for students at TMS. We expect our students to be safe, respectful, responsible, successful, and to show integrity. We truly believe that all students can meet these expectations and that by doing so, will experience great success at TMS.
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their highest potential. I believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all our students. I believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.
All students will receive the school handbook within their planner. This handbook establishes the rules and expectations of behavior for the upcoming school year. Take some time to review the material enclosed as a family, so that everyone becomes familiar with the content. I look forward to meeting and working with you all as we begin our journey together for the 2018-2019 school year.
