Minimizing Classroom Disruptions due to Message Deliveries
With the goal of minimizing classroom disruptions, items and messages will no longer be delivered to students during class time. Instead, these will be held in the office, and students will be notified at lunch time to pick them up. Messages for students after lunch time will be delivered to classrooms on an emergency basis only (safety concern). Thank you for understanding as we maximize learning time for students.

Welcome to the 2014-2015 Thurgood Marshall Middle School Year
Welcome to all new and returning students and families! The first day of school is Wednesday, September 3. The first bell rings at 7:55 AM and school is dismissed at 2:32 PM each day.
In addition to lots of exciting staff and program changes inside of our building, our upper parking lot and drop-off area have also received an upgrade this summer to improve efficiency and safety. The parking lot access is now a one-way loop. Cars enter in the west entrance from 20th Avenue and exit from the east. Speed humps have also been added to keep our students and staff safe. Thanks for taking extra care to protect our community.
