Principal's Message

Greetings to all Georgie D. Tyler Middle School, parents, and guardians!  


Dear Georgie D. Tyler Titan Family:       


We are halfway through the 2016- 2017 school year. This year has been absolutely phenomenal. I contribute this to the amazing faculty and staff, extraordinarily talented students, and supportive parents and community partners. Thank you for such a warm and inviting reception. I am truly thankful to serve as the Principal of GTMS.

I am extremely proud of the academic and fine arts accomplishments of our students and school thus far. I encourage you to visit our school to see for yourself why our faculty, staff, and administrative team make GTMS an AMAZING instructional environment that embraces students’ academic, as well as musical and artistic talents.  


Please take a moment to ensure that you check out the following information:


  • If you have not already done so, please sign up for PowerSchool Parent Portal.  This will allow you to review your child’s grades and academic progress throughout the year. More information can be found on the division website ( or in our school’s main office.
  • Sign up for the Connect 5 messaging systemThis will ensure you receive communication from the division regarding updates for inclement weather closings, as well as various school activities at GTMS. More information can be found at (
  • Download the SchoolWay app on your smartphone or tablet. This program will ensure you receive information from teachers regarding assignments and the school regarding a variety of activities throughout the school year.
  • Lastly, a reminder to all parents of rising 6th Grade students – students must have Tdap boosters prior to attending the first day of school.  Please bring medical documentation that your child has received the shot, including the date and signature of the physician or registered nurse to the main office or school nurse prior to the first day of school.

We are continuing to enjoy a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want.......we need......and we value your involvement and support in your child's education!  Your active participation is key to the success of our young Titans during their middle school years.  It is indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  Here's to an AWESOME school year as we continue to work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!


Go Titans!

As community members, it is our duty to stand up and speak up against bullying.  I encourage anyone that is being bullied or has witnessed a bullying incident to notify an adult immediately or contact our School Information Tip (S.I.T.) line by calling 757-357-0908.

As always, my door is open, and I encourage you to give me a call if you have any questions.  Thank you for your support,
