            To Our Teeland Families:

            Thank you to our families for your continued support of TMS! We are so fortunate to be a part of a school community that communicates, engages in family events, supports their students at home, and allows us some grace when we make mistakes! We held our quarter three Title I, family event last night. The “Nacho Average Game Night” was a drive-in success! Over 85 families drove up and received nacho ingredients and games to take home for an evening of fun.

            Teeland will again offer virtual Parent/Teacher Conferences on February 15-16, 2021. Families will be sent information on how to sign up for an online, or phone call, conference. We encourage families to meet with teachers if their student has been earning low grades, if their student appears confused about class expectations, or if there is a personal concern. Each time slot will be for 15 minutes. If you are unable to meet on the 15th or 16th, you have the option to set up a Friday conference after 12:15. More information on how to sign-up will be sent soon!

            TMS is still very concerned about keeping our students safe as we plan for spring. This year we are hoping that we can have an 8th grade celebration for our students as they prepare to move into high school. As an alternative to the traditional “Promotion Ceremony”, this year’s event will be a student only, social distanced assembly, to recognize academic achievement and the advancement to 9th grade. We are planning to offer a zoom link for families that want to observe the event in a live feed, and we will record the ceremony to post on our TMS YouTube channel. After the ceremony, students will enjoy an outdoor BBQ and spend time with their peers before heading out for the summer.

            Our reasons for having a smaller event are twofold: Most importantly we want to address the continued health and safety of our families due the pandemic. The unknown factor about the future of the pandemic in our State is reason enough to plan differently.

            The second reason is the current societal expectation that all students will complete the 8th grade, high school, and hopefully, some form of schooling/training after high school. In the early 20th Century, 8th-grade promotion did mark the completion of formal school for many students. Today, we know that our students need to move past the 8th grade to compete for gainful employment. We believe completion of 8th grade can be celebrated in a manner that is inclusive of all students, less formal, and more fun. When we no longer must plan around a pandemic, we will of course seek out community input on this issue as we move into the future.

            Teeland Middle will be celebrating “Kindness Matters” the week of February 8th-11th. Our NJHS has put together a week of events focused on caring and kindness towards others. We appreciate this group of leaders focusing on unity and compassion.

             Enjoy the longer days!

            Mrs. Hinds, TMS Principal

            Dear Parents/Guardians,

             With the COVID-19 outbreak [and subsequent break from school], Teeland would like to help students find new ways to learn while away from the classroom. The MSBSD has an exciting new online library available through Sora, a student reading app that provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading?

            How does it work? Sora provides students access to hundreds of ebooks and audiobooks for virtually any device and has features that will be easy for any student to use. Students can simply log in using their Clever or Network ID (ab12345).

            Get started today by downloading the free Sora app for Android or iOS at https://soraapp.com or go to Student Quick Links. For easy access, look for “Find our School” and select Matanuska Susitna School District. Here is a video with the steps to install Sora.

            If you have trouble contact your school librarian or Robin Turk, the District Library Coordinator.

            Sincerely,

            Jo Ann Hinds, Principal
