MARCH 30, 2020

             Dear parents, students and families,

             I hope this note finds you well! While we may have found ourselves at the crossroads of an uncertain time, it is our commitment to you, that we, as a TMS faculty, will unconditionally continue to be here for all of your academic needs.

             Beginning this MONDAY, 3/30, our district will transition to a VIRTUAL LEARNING platform for all students. 

             For TMS students, a new ORANGE and BLACK day schedule will begin. This will effectively divide the traditional TMS school day into two parts (one part per day) to facilitate learning and allow additional time for more direct "real time" teacher contact with students.

             A DAILY SCHEDULE and MONTHLY CALENDAR are POSTED on this site under the STUDY STILLS tab.

    : I will be available to the STUDY SKILLS students for "live, real-time" lessons. Students should log into the VIRTUAL LESSON Google Doc on our STUDY SKILLS GOOGLE CLASSROOM. 

              These lessons will take place during our STUDY SKILLS class times:

              (ORANGE DAYS): PERIOD 3,  10:10 - 10:55 A.M.

              (BLACK DAYS): PERIOD 11,   11 - 11:45 A.M.

              In addition, "live" EXTRA HELP will be available via the VIRTUAL EXTRA HELP Google Doc posted on our STUDY SKILLS GOOGLE CLASRROOM:

              WEDNESDAYS - 1:30 - 2 P.M. 

              Assignments will continue to be given through our TEAM BLUE Google Classrooms.

             We know that this is a new, interesting and very different way of learning right now, so please don't hesitate to reach our via e-mail or class comment on Google Classroom. We are here for you and happy to help!

             With sincerest gratitude for all of your time, help and support at home, 

             Ms. Trochanowski





            Welcome to another exciting year at Tenafly Middle School! I am the support teacher for seventh grade Team Blue. As a member of the Team Blue staff, I will be co-teaching with your child's mainstream teachers. For those enrolled in Study Skills class, instruction will reinforce the concepts studied in the content areas as well as emphasize the skills for academic success.

             I believe in educating the "whole child," academically, emotionally and socially, as well as helping to instill self-confidence in each of my students. By all accounts, Tenafly Middle School is a warm progressive community of learning. I consider it a privilege to serve its students. 

           Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns, via e-mail, at atrochanowski@tenafly.k12.nj.us.

           I look forward to a wonderful and successful academic year with your child!
