    I hope that your experiences with us will be ones that you will remember and cherish for years to come.

    It is important for you to understand that rules, though sometimes unpopular, are designed to provide an orderly learning environment.  Personal responsibility is a valued trait at TCMS and we don't make excuses for our actions.  Excuses are the tools of losers.  We want everyone to be a WINNER.  That being said, it is my expectation that everyone follow the rules and procedures of the school, so that all members of the TCMS Family can have positive, memorable experiences.

    My hope is that every student who passes through these halls will be successful in their coursework and in life. Our teachers will go above and beyond their call of duty to help you in any way possible, but you have to be willing to put forth maximum effort in all areas of the curriculum.  Here at TCMS, we place learning above all other priorities.

    It is my sincere hope that each of you commits yourself to attaining the highest level of academic achievement and being successful at TCMS. If you will remember these three things, you will do just that:

    • Do what’s right,
    • Be the best you can be, and
    • Treat others the way you want to be treated.


    Good luck and God bless you,

    Christopher D. Ellis, Ed.S.
