Tatum High School
Dear THS Students and Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to the 2013-14 school year. We hope you have had a great summer and are excited about the new learning and social opportunities a new school year will bring. We have spent the summer preparing for your return and are excited about the upcoming year.
Tatum High School has an excellent staff that works very hard to provide a positive learning environment that supports effective instruction and promotes learning. Our number one priority is the success of our students. If you commit to always giving your best effort, you will have tremendous academic and social gains during the school year.
As principal, my message to you is one of high expectations. You have the responsibility of taking advantage of the many learning opportunities you will have for academic, social and emotional growth. We expect you to work hard to meet the expectations set forth for you. As high school educators, our job is to prepare you academically for future learning while you transition from a student to a young adult who is college or career ready.
You must also work to prepare yourself by:
Setting high standards for yourself and by going beyond the minimum requirements for any assignment given to you.
Take advantage of dual credit opportunities
Challenge yourself by taking STEM classes
Seek CTE certifications
Don’t take the easy way out!
Prepare for school each day by doing homework, studying for your classes, getting a good nights sleep, and being on time to school
Taking advantage of the many opportunities we provide for you to maximize your achievement: It is important that you have an avenue of open communication with your teachers.
Making the best of every day and every opportunity
Following our rules: Be Responsible, Be respectful, and Hands off of others and their property.
Most important rule of all is Do Not disrupt the learning environment for you and others.
I am beginning my 13th year as a Principal in TISD and consider myself very fortunate every year to get the opportunity to work with such a great community and staff. I look forward to meeting new families to Tatum High School and encourage you to participate in all aspects of the school.
Bob Garcia, Principal
