Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Tequesta Trace Middle School. It is an honor and privilege to serve as Principal of this amazing school. On behalf of the Administration and Staff, I want to welcome you to the 2024-2025 school year.

    One of the keys to a successful year is the ability to communicate with our families on a regular basis. To achieve this, we will be utilizing email, phone calls and our website. Automated calls and email will go out regularly on Sunday afternoons. If you do not receive these, then we do not have the correct information on record. Please call (754) 323-4421 to correct this as soon as possible. Parents, I encourage you to stay involved in your child’s education.  Together we can make sure that every child is academically prepared and that they have their social and emotional needs met. 

    We know the importance of a great teacher and we are fortunate to have certified teachers dedicated to our students.  We also believe that a great teacher needs resources. We are fortunate this year that every classroom will have a state-of-the-art Smart Board and each class will also have a computer cart with a laptop for every child to use in the classroom. With the astounding amount of parental involvement we have at TTMS, we know that this year will once again be memorable.

    Please see important dates:

    On Thursday, August 1st, we will be holding our Cougar Walk for incoming 6th graders.

    The first day of school is Monday, August 12th. 

    In addition, we will have two Open House dates, where parents only are invited to a presentation from your teachers on the upcoming year.  The Open House dates are:

    6th grade parents on Thursday, August 22nd at 6:00 PM

    7th and 8th grade parents on Thursday, August 29th at 6:00 PM

    “There is no place like the Trace!”
