Dear Students and Parents;
The summer assignments for Tanglewood Middle School are below. These assignments are due in the first week of school.
Tanglewood is an International Baccalaureate (IB) world school and we must emulate a school with a world view. Community service is a large part of being focused on the needs of others. Begin your service now during the summer and strive to complete the required hours on your Community Service Log along with the IB Service Proposal.
Being a student at Tanglewood Middle School requires your engagement, your responsibility, your principles, and your knowledge. Failure is not an option. Students along with their parents must be active in their education. Throughout the year, consider the following questions. When is the assignment due? What is required to complete the assignment at the highest level of achievement? If I do not understand the assignment, when can I meet with the teacher for help? How can I make my assignment even better?
You have the summer to prepare for next year’s success. Have fun, rest, and enjoy your days, but when completing all assignments: do not forget to keep your mind active. Do not wait until the last minute to do these assignments. Make yourself a schedule for the summer in order to complete each assignment.
My expectations are high for every one of you. Enjoy your summer and be ready to learn on August 28, 2017 at 7:40 am.
Gretchen Kasper-Hoffman, Principal
