During Red Ribbon Week on Dec 13th, there will be a special presentation for 8th grade students during 4th period about the dangers of drugs and good decision making. This presentation will be from Prunytown Correctional Facility. They will be bringing 2 inmates who have graduated from a program that enables them to talk to students about the dangers of drugs. If there is a student that chooses not to hear the presentation, they are welcome to go to the gym at that time and do some activities. TCMS will be having a Spirit Week, too. If you have any questions, please contact Renee Mahon, School Counselor. Thanks,
