The courtyard in the middle of the school is central to TMS' new Garden
Club. At TMS, students learn about ecosystems. This allows our students
to have a deeper understanding of concepts and apply their knowledge to
real hands-on experiences. In regards to the garden, there are many
benefits. The school garden can be: a source of food for improving
children’s diets and nutrition sources; a source of healthy influences
-- physical activity, ingredients for school meals; an area of learning
-- about nature, agriculture, nutrition, math, and other subjects; a
place of pleasure and recreation -- flowers and shrubs, play areas,
shade, eating areas; a continuing lesson in respecting the environment
and taking pride in one’s school; a gathering spot for our community to
socialize. Join in the fun!
CYBERPATRIOT TEAM: TMS' CyberPatriot Team participates in the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. Mr. Jay Szaro (firstname.lastname@example.org)
is the advisor. The competition puts teams of high school and middle
school students in the position of newly-hired IT professionals tasked
with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of
competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent
operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity
vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while
maintaining critical services.
Homework Club runs every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday and is held in
the TMS Library from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. TMS' Librarian, Ms. Deb O'Hara (Dohara@tivertonschools.org) is the club advisor
