Summer 2021

Greetings to our Dr. Claudia Thomas Middle School Families, 

We are looking forward to seeing all our students back in school this September. Reflecting on this past COVID year, I would like you to think about the idea that life is a school in which we learn to become better, stronger, kinder, and more resilient human beings. This last year we have learned valuable lessons that can make a difference for our families and children.  

Have fun this summer, be academic and stay safe. We want all our students to always demonstrate their best work and best selves at school, at home and in the community.

At Thomas we define success when staff and students are “all in” as lifelong collaborative learners who demonstrate character and leadership. It is so important today for our children to hear words and see people act in ways that demonstrate great character.

Welcome to our incoming 6th grade class, and our 7th and 8th grade students who are new to Thomas.

 Please make note of the following events for August:

  • Summer school is at Thomas with 3 sessions through July 29th. There is currently a waiting list to participate.
  • The Thomas office is closed July 1st through August 2nd     
  • August 9th & 10th Titan Camp for incoming 6th grade students. 8:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Breakfast and Lunch is provided as well as bus transportation. Look for more communication, and registration details from us mid-July.
  • Look for information from Thomas for our Family and Student Titan get together in late August. We will have new student and parent orientation, student schedules, general school information and a lunchtime BBQ.
  • Wednesday, September 1st is the first day of school. More information to come on this.
  • September 1 is the first day of sports. Sports physicals and paperwork will need to be completed and turned into the office prior to sports participation.
  • Sports Physicals: Students can go to Mt. Tahoma school on Aug 12 between 3 PM to 6 PM.  This is a no-charge sports physical clinic run by MultiCare that PLU also volunteers at.

    Date: Aug 12
    Location:  Mt. Tahoma HS, 4634 S 74th St, Tacoma, WA 98409
    Time: 3 pm to 6 pm
  • September 6th is Labor Day.
  • We look forward to seeing Titan parents join our PTSA this fall.

Our summer character word is “friendship.” Partner with us over the summer to discuss with your child the meaning of this important word and how friends fit into the adolescent years of life.
We are thankful for those who are serving in the military, and our wish for all or our Thomas families is to have a safe and enjoyable summer.
