Home/Updates Page

Welcome to Ms. Altman's Class. Here is where I will update you on important information and upcoming events at Tomball Intermediate.  Also check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

I also have a Remind 101 setup for parents to get text messages of important things for our class. All you have to do is text @jaltman to 81010 or use the link

Make sure that you are checking out the Science page for upcoming topics and references/resources to help at home.  Students should constantly be checking out their Google Classroom page for assignments and extra help with lessons.  Check the extra websites I have listed for practice on the Links page.


 Below you will find the Tomball ISD Calendar for this school year.
