"Take Care of Yourself; Take Care of Each Other, Take Care of This Place"
Welcome! As the Supervisor of Student Services at Tenafly Middle School I work together with students, staff and parents to ensure that students are making good choices as they navigate the sometimes bumpy path through middle school. Students at this age make an increasing number of personal decisions each day. They will make some good choices; they will make some poor choices. What is most important, however, is that we honor the good choices and see the poor choices as opportunities for learning and growth.
Appropriate conduct and discipline are necessary components of school life. To inform and guide all members of the school community, please take some time to familiarize yourself with our TMS Code of Conduct, TMS Honor Code, and district policies regarding harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB). I also encourage both students and parents to visit the district website's Anti-Bullying page to access a variety of informative and helpful resources as well as downloadable form for reporting incidences of HIB. Throughout this school year we will be working to educate students about the New Jersey's new Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act. For additional information and resources specific to TMS please visit the TMS Bullying Awareness and Prevention Programs and Resources.
Overarching the specifics of any school and district policies regarding personal conduct are 5 fundamental values that we at TMS refer to as our Tiger Stripes: Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Trust, and Caring. As a member of the TMS community, wear your stripes with pride!
I like the title of Supervisor of Students - S.O.S!!! I'm here to help. Please reach out should you have any questions or concerns. I wish everyone a successful, interesting and joyful year of learning!
