Teacher Appreciation Week
During the first week of May, students and parents take time to recognize the efforts of the teachers in our schools. At TFMS, the PTA hosts a teacher luncheon, at which PTA volunteers help set up, serve food and clean up.
8th Grade Graduation Dance
As the largest annual TFMS event, the 8th Grade Graduation Dance is held in the TFMS cafeteria, which is transformed for this special celebratory evening. Planning begins in September and continues throughout the year. Following a kick-off meeting arranged by the chairperson(s), PTA volunteers work on various committees, including Theme Decorations, Food/Refreshments Donations and Table Decorations, Invitations, Memory Poem, DJ/Photographer, Video, Set-up/Clean-up and Chaperones (non 8th grade parents only).
8th Grade Breakfast
To celebrate their final day of 8th grade, students spend the day in the cafeteria signing yearbooks and enjoying breakfast and entertainment provided by the PTA. Volunteers help arrange entertainment and assist with food and refreshments.
June brings Field Day, with activities arranged by the Physical Education team. PTA volunteers serve ice pops, which are provided through the PTA.
Variety Show – On hold
Each winter, students at TFMS showcase their talents during a Variety Show held at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) of Monmouth Regional High School. PTA volunteers sell tickets, hand out programs, maintain order backstage and in the theater during the performances and help sell donated baked goods and refreshments.
