December greetings to our Thomas Students and Families,

Thank you, parents, for the gifts and talents that your students bring to school.

December is a month to be “compassionate” toward others and ourselves. We look forward to students demonstrating good character by being compassionate, kind, appreciative of peers, celebrating good outcomes at school, and through the intentional giving and receiving of positive, constructive words and actions toward one another.

Make note of the following:

  • Book Fair – December 4th through the 8th. This is a good time to purchase books for Christmas gifts.
  • Winter 1 Sports: Girls Basketball and Co-ed Wrestling. 3:30 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.
  • Titan Center/YMCA AYPYN after-school activities – Monday through Thursday with bus transportation home. 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Dec. 12th at 6:00 pm Choir concert
  • Dec. 13th at 6:00 pm Band concert
  • Dec. 14th at 6:00 pm Orchestra concert
  • Dec. 18th at 5:30 pm Jazz Band concert
  • Dec. 18th at 5:30 pm PTSA meeting
  • Dec. 19th family movie night ELF.
  • Family Parade Fun Time Opportunity: Families and students are invited to walk in the Lakewood Holiday Parade and Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, December 9th. Meet at the Park Lodge Elementary parking lot at 4:00 p.m. Park Lodge address: 6300 100th St S.W. Lakewood, WA. When you arrive find Thomas Middle School.
  • Winter Break. December 25-January 5th. Return to school on Monday, January 8th.


Ideas for December gift-giving are books that have values-based themes. Good reading material can provide great 4 Pillar learning and will be positive discussion topics for the whole family.

We often underestimate the power of a smile, a kind word, or a listening ear, all of which have the power to turn a life around.

At Thomas, we embrace the value of educating all students to be lifelong collaborative learners who demonstrate character and leadership. As educators, we believe ALL students can and will be successful.
