Message from the Principal

Mrs. Harding, PrincipalGreetings to all Georgie D. Tyler Middle School, parents, and guardians!  

Dear Georgie D. Tyler Titan Family:       

                                                             

I am excited to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! Hopefully, the summer has provided you with many memorable opportunities to spend time with family and friends. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of such as an exemplary and student centered learning community.  This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to embark on this journey into deeper learning with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with a plethora of activities to encourage our Titans to be involved and stay connected!

 

Our custodial staff has been working diligently to thoroughly prepare the halls and classrooms of the school facility in preparation for another school year. The Titan teachers and administrators were also meeting during the summer to develop student schedules, participate in ongoing professional learning opportunities, realign curriculum, and plan lessons for the upcoming school year.

 

As we prepare to embark on another year, I am reminded that the beginning of school is truly a special time, and I am eagerly looking forward to partnering with you as we continue to nurture the ongoing development of your child. Fortunately, our school continues to be a team of exceptionally talented and committed staff that is anchored by a supportive Central Office Administration and Board of Education.

 

Please take a moment to ensure that you check out the following information:

  • If you have not already done so, please sign up for PowerSchool Parent Portal.  This will allow you to review your child’s grades and academic progress throughout the year. More information can be found on the division website (www.iwcs.k12.va.us/page/powerschool/) or in our school’s main office.
  • Sign up for the Connect 5 messaging systemThis will ensure you receive communication from the division regarding updates for inclement weather closings, as well as various school activities at GTMS. More information can be found at (www.iwcs.k12.va.us/page/connect-5-(formerly-alert-now)/)
  • Download the SchoolWay app on your smartphone or tablet. This program will ensure you receive information from teachers regarding assignments and the school regarding a variety of activities throughout the school year.
  • Lastly, a reminder to all parents of rising 6th Grade students – students must have Tdap boosters prior to attending the first day of school.  Please bring medical documentation that your child has received the shot, including the date and signature of the physician or registered nurse to the main office or school nurse prior to the first day of school.

 We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want.......we need......and we value your involvement and support in your child's education!  Your active participation is key to the success of our young Titans during his/her middle school years.  It is indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  Here's to an AWESOME new school year as we continue to work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!

 

Go Titans!

IWCS has zero-tolerance for bullying and all of our schools are bully-free zones. As educators, we play a critical role in ensuring that our children are learning in a safe and healthy environment. As community members, it is our duty to stand up and speak up against bullying.  I encourage anyone that is being bullied or has witnessed a bullying incident to notify an adult immediately or contact our School Information Tip (S.I.T.) line by calling 757-357-0908.

As always, my door is open, and I encourage you to give me a call if you have any questions.  Thank you for your support.

Titan Pride!
