Dear Secondary School Families: 

I am excited to share a link to our website where you will find a very lengthy list of first quarter honor roll students for both the  middle and high school. Middle school honor roll students have earned an overall average of 89.5-94.4%. To be eligible for high honor, middle school students must have earned an overall average of 94.5-100% in their coursework.  Students on Tamarac High School’s honor roll have earned at least a 90% average in all courses with no grade lower than 75% and no incompletes. Over 50% of our students in grades 6-12 qualified for the honor roll. We are proud of this achievement and grateful for the support of our families and community. Congratulations to all of our honor roll students on their first quarter success!

A reminder that our holiday concerts will take place next week! On Monday, December 13 at 7pm the 6-12 band will perform and the chorus will perform on Thursday, December 16, also at 7pm.  Each student performing is receiving two tickets for family members to attend. Please remember to wear a mask while inside the building.  The concerts will also be live streamed and recorded.

School Picture Makeup Day: Adirondack School Portraits will be back for picture makeup day on Monday 12/13/21. Students may have their picture retaken from 8:00 am -10 am in the multi-purpose gym. We will be making announcements in the morning to remind students who need their picture retaken. Students may ask for a pass from their teachers or at the main lobby desk before homeroom to leave class for a retake. Please note, there is a $3 charge for anyone who needs their photos retaken for anything other than closed eyes or mouth open.  If it is a retake photo, the original packet must come back in order for the picture to be retaken. If the student does not have to have a form, they will be given a printout to take home after they are photographed and parents/guardians may go online and place their order at (MS/HS Code - TMMDHS36X21). 

January 25 Regents Day: The English Language Arts (ELA) Regents will be administered on Tuesday, January 25, 2022. This will be a half day of in-person instruction for all Secondary school students. All secondary students will be dismissed at 11:05am. Students will be provided with flipped learning/ independent online activities through Google Classroom to work on independently for the afternoon. 

Key Club: Key Club is conducting a Holiday Animal Pet Food Drive through December 22nd.  We will be collecting donations at the front lobby, auditorium lobby and at the multi purpose gym lobby in holiday wrapped boxes. Key Club members will be dropping off the donations we collect to the Mohawk Humane Society on December 23rd. Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated!
