The TJ Library Wish List Program Could Use Your Support!
The TJ Library would like to update its print collection to offer a variety of classics, contemporary literature, and new nonfiction books for our students. With budget cuts, it is more difficult to purchase the updated resources our students need, so the PTSA has established a TJHSST Library Wish List on Amazon.com. If you purchase an item from the Wish List, please email the librarian, Your support of the TJ Library is greatly appreciated!

Base School Delayed Openings
Base school delayed openings can be found in the Transportation Section of the PTSA website. Please check it for updates. There are currently 2 schools on the list with delayed school openings during the next couple of months, but that list changes frequently. If your child's base school has a delayed opening in the morning, they need to find their own transportation to their base school in order to pick up the TJ shuttle bus.
Parents and students, if you haven't already done so, please consider signing up for TJ's STEMbassadors program. We're looking to partner with about 200 local elementary and middle schools to identify opportunities for high school students to give back to their community; spread TJ�s love of learning; and advance science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.For more information, see our website at http://www.tjhsst.edu/~emglazer/stembassadors/, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
