7th & 8th Grade - School Supply Suggestions

posted Aug 6, 2018, 5:04 PM by Bruce Bailey

Parents sometimes ask for a list of needed school supplies as they head out to prepare for the new year. With teachers and students having unique preferences, it's difficult to create one universal list. Please know that teachers will give students time to obtain anything unique that might be needed. Here is a general list of things that are helpful to have:
  • Pens and Pencils- you may not want to send them all at once and instead resupply your student occasionally throughout the year.
  • Some spiral notebooks or loose leaf paper and folders.
  • A couple of 3-ring binders.
  • Some teachers will ask for a bound composition book.
  • An inexpensive set of earbuds can be helpful for use with laptop computers.
  • Colored pencils or markers are helpful to have on hand for projects.
  • Your student may also have a book or two to cover - Paper bags still work just fine.
Please note that our lockers are fairly narrow. Often mirrors, shelves and other decoratives that kids bring won't fit or interfere with opening or closing the door and should be avoided. Gym clothes- sneakers, shorts or gym pants, and a t-shirt are needed for Phys. Ed. class. Hope this is helpful - we look forward to seeing you back at school!

Attention Parents of Seventh and Eighth Graders!

This outdoor program, with a focus on canoeing,  is a new initiative in the midcoast and the director is asking for some Belfast students to participate. It is a perfect fit for kids who love to be active and outside and who are not involved in traditional sports. There are scholarships available. If several parents are interested in having their children participate, carpooling can be coordinated. Contact Ms. Davis, School Counselor, as soon as possible, if you are interested. edavis@rsu71.org

THMS Student Council needs your help!

posted Dec 4, 2017, 6:43 AM by Melinda Larrabee

Our Student Council would like to get your help on a couple of community projects. Your generous donations would be appreciated!

1. We are working to collect items for a group of soldiers currently deployed in Afghanistan. We are also collecting items for the VA hospital in Augusta. Both of these are being done through our local VFW. Please see below for a list of items needed to be donated.

2. Toys for Tots- We just received a collection box for Toys for Tots.Last year, we sent back a half full box of toys to be given to local kids in need. They were very appreciative of our efforts! Anyone who donates a new, unwrapped toy, will be given a Toys for Tots bracelet and pen.

Thank you!
