MTSS Update:

In an effort to recognize more students who make positive decisions on a daily basis, the Toano Middle School Community has implemented a peer recognition program.  On a monthly basis, students have the opportunity to nominate a peer who consistently demonstrates our core values.  Students who are selected are recognized on the Tiger News and receive a PRIDE t-shirt.  Thank you for your continued support in our effort to teach students our core P.R.I.D.E. values of being Prepared, showing Respect, having Integrity, being Determined, and Empowering others.

Please visit our school webpage (https://wjccschools.org/tms/) for additional information about the things happening here at Toano Middle School.
