Welcome Message
Dear Friends,

Welcome to Tenafly Middle School! The 2017-2018 school year promises to be a great one. The faculty and staff believe in treating students as individuals under our three simple rules:
Take care of yourself
Take care of each other
Take care of this place
The TMS staff is a dedicated team of outstanding educators who understand the needs of a middle school child. We work together to create a warm and nurturing environment while we challenge students to learn, grow, and mature into caring young adults. The key to successful teaching is collaboration which is one of the reasons we believe in the team philosophy. Our school is a family and we support each other every day. One of our goals this year is for teachers to learn from their colleagues by visiting other classrooms regularly. This model of collaboration and collegiality will be a model for our students.

The parents and families of Tenafly Middle School are important members of the school community. Led by the volunteers in our Home School Association, the TMS parents are dedicated to enriching the lives of our children. TMS students are very lucky to live in such a great town filled with people who believe that education is paramount.

One topic we will continue to focus on this year is the growth mindset with a concentration on the power of failure. We want our students to believe that failure is an opportunity to grow and not to be feared. Our students should be taking risks, failing, and learning. Failure is not an expectation. Hard work, persistence, resilience, and setting goals are expectations we have of our students. The book Mindset by Carol Dweck is a resource the staff will use and I encourage all parents to read it. I will have extra copies in my office for you to borrow or you can easily get an e-book.

I am super excited about starting my second year and I need your help to continue on our journey to make Tenafly Middle School the best in the country. Let's make it a great year!

John Fabbo
Proud Principal

Live your dreams every day!
