Year of the Build Vision

Imagine a year from now as you drive up the TMS Lower School driveway. You see the state-of-the-art gym on your left and imagine the many sweet moments of sport that will take place there. You enter the new Entrance and experience the new Atrium filled with light, sound and space. You see students collaborating around the fireplace, parents clustered together having coffee, and our Admissions team welcoming a new family. You look beyond to the Grove, an outdoor learning area that provides a slice of nature within the school. You feel the positivity and potential of a school that is growing in Significance. Not just any school – your school. For students, parents, alumni and staff – TMS is your school, our school. It is a place where students thrive, build resilience, and develop an entrepreneurial mindset.

This is our vision for TMS and in a year – by the Fall of 2019 – we will be living that vision through the new spaces we are building – Gym, Entrance, Atrium and Grove. Space matters. Great spaces create energy, a positive dynamic, and opportunities for inclusion. These new spaces are ones in which our students – your children – will try something new, meet friends, gain independence, increase their confidence and, in short, thrive.

This is our vision for your child. Four great new spaces all built in one year to benefit hundreds of children now and to come. We invite you to be part of the Vision.

The Year of the Build Challenge

TMS is your school – our school. As we aim to build a new Gym, Entrance, Atrium and Grove, we invite you to join the Year of the Build Challenge.

This year’s TMS Annual Giving campaign will run from November 2018 to June 2019 in conjunction with the onset of construction at TMS and for this year only, will be called the Year of the Build Challenge.

A minimum donation of $1,000 will support these amazing new spaces and will be permanently celebrated through a beautiful donor recognition installation that will be prominently featured in the new Lower School Atrium.

All donations to the Year of the Build Challenge are eligible for a tax receipt. When you give, you will also be eligible for fun monthly draws of unique TMS experiences. The sooner you participate, the more draws you are eligible to enter.
