About Us

Welcome to Tolland Middle School!  TMS is a comprised of approximately 600 students in grades 6 through 8.  TMS has a teaming structure, by which each student is assigned to a grade level team.  There are two teams per grade level.  Each team has six teachers, two English Language Arts, one social studies, one math, one science, and one special education.  Because this is the bridge between elementary school and high school, it is important that we foster independence, while providing the support and scaffolding that students need for success.  In Tolland, this is the first time that students rotate classes and have more than two teacher for core subjects.

Also new to middle school students is the concept of “grades.”  At TMS we practice Mastery Based Grading.  We, and the Tolland Public Schools at large, believe that the purpose of grades are to inform students, parents, and teachers about a child’s level of performance matched against grade-level skills and standards.  Grades are data or information meant to provide specific and actionable feedback to help each individual student improve and grow as a learner.  Thus, every student at TMS can learn and achieve academic success.  For more information about our grading policy, please click on TMS Grading Policy in the Quick Links on the right of the page.

A reminder from Mrs. Grande:
In order to create an maintain an environment that is professional for students, our dress code is on page 15 or our student agenda.  In particular, we are seeing many students come to school with attire that is more conducive for summer gatherings.  When your child/children are dressed for school please take a moment to make sure their attire meets the appearance and dress code.  Items to be conscientious of:  clothing that is see through, strapless shirts, tops which do not cover the abdomen or lower half of the back or sides of the body, shorts and skirts should extend beyond the student's fist when arms are at the side, and tank tops must be at least the width of two finders.  As temperatures rise we certainly want our students to be comfortable in the clothing they select for school as long as it meets the dress code.  If students are wearing items that do not meet our appearance and dress code we will provide them the opportunity to change and/or call home for a change of attire.  Thank you in advance for your support.
