Raider Hoodies: If you purchased a Raider Hoodie, they are available for pick up at the middle school office!

Tillamook Family Counseling Center: 2021 calendar contest for grades 6-8. 13 drawings will be selected to be featured in the calendar. Theme is “when things change”. It will be sent to all Tillamook addresses. Some ideas for drawings could be ways of coping with change: such as taking a walk, reading, etc. If you are interested in entering the contest, call the office. Deadline for submission is November 6th.

Community Service: In order to be safe during the COVID-19, we have extended our community service acceptable activities.  Here are some ideas that you can use to count toward your seven hours of community service each trimester.

  • Any chores at home that you do not normally do and that you do not get paid for (dishes, laundry, vacuuming, etc.)
  • Helping a neighbor out (mowing their lawn, taking their garbage out, babysitting, etc.
  • Creating art work and share it to the care center, so they can display it  for others to enjoy
  • Writing letters and sending them to service men and women.
  • Doing a Zoom meeting with a family member who lives out of town and you don’t often see (grandparents, aunt and uncles, etc.)
  • Ask your advisory if you are unsure.
  • Once you complete an activity, have your parent email your advisory teacher with the following information:
    • Activity
    • Number of hours
  • Let’s do our part to help others, especially during these times of uncertainty!

 

Reminder: Please use your same color-coded bag to return any books/assignments/materials.

 

School Paperwork: Please be sure to send back the paperwork that was given to you during chromebook checkout day.
