Message from the Principal

July 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to another great school year. I want to thank you in advance for the opportunity to work with you and your child. I am looking forward to starting my fifth year as principal at TRMS, and being a part of the Thunder Ridge community and family.

As we start the school year, we want to assure you that we will take good care of your child as if they were our own. I ask my staff to do two things well: Love our students and love our staff. With this commitment to our students, it is our responsibility to create an environment that is grounded in developing the "Thunder Values": Dream Big, Inspire Everyone, Create a Roadmap, Believe in Yourself, Achieve, and Work Hard. Our staff will work diligently to inspire your child to think, to learn, to achieve, and to care. We will ensure all children have the opportunity to learn in an environment that promotes academic excellence, academic scholars, and global citizens.

Our goal is to provide your child with the most enriching, rigorous, high-level academic experience on a daily basis. Meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of all of our students is what you can expect from your Thunder Ridge Middle School staff, as they exhibit Thunder Pride. We are committed to making a difference with every child, every day, in every class.

I look forward to meeting each of you. Please know that my door is always open and I hope you stop by to say hello. It takes a partnership to ensure success and I am looking forward to creating one with you.

One more note, as we prepare for the upcoming school year, we want to remind you to complete your check-in process online before school starts (August 13). Information regarding important notes for accessing the electronic online check-in system and hours of operation are attached.  (Remember… School starts at 8:50 a.m. and ends at 3:45 p.m.) If you have any questions, please be sure to check our website at or give us a call here at TRMS 720-886-1500.  Once again, welcome back and we look forward to seeing you soon.
