Toys For Tots Gift Guidelines | Murphy Insurance Agency

Hey TJ! Do you want to make a kid’s Holiday? In the spirit of the season of giving, we are partnering with Toys for Tots, which is run by the Marine Corps, for their 75th anniversary!!

You can donate by placing your gift under the tree in Nobel Commons, and they don’t need to be wrapped. Donating would help children across the nation whose parents aren’t able to afford gifts this Holiday season, and our winter toy drive will take place until Friday, December 9, until lunch. Information on what gifts are allowed to be sent can be found at https://www.dfmurphy.com/resources/Toys-for-Tots/Gift-Guidelines.aspx

If you have any questions, please contact Shrishti Ghosh or Yasmin Kudrati-Plummer!

Murphy Insurance does an annual Toys for Tots toy drive. Here are the guidelines for dropping off a toy at any of our 7 locations. Thank you for your support!

And that’s a wrap on Homecoming 2022!

This year, saw students band together during late nights to solve the unsolvable. We saw many of you skipping lunch to practice MEX choreos. We saw students give up their time to work on musical and cinematic projects. We saw the return of daily pep rallies and a successful school dance to conclude the week.

We saw the return of a true TJ Homecoming.

So, on one final note: thank you, TJ, for making this year’s Hocoszn “one for the books,” one to remember.

Now for the part you were all waiting for: our final scores and overall winners.

MONEY WARS WINNERS: We raised a total of $7263 for Fairfax Family Pass. Amazing job to everyone in the TJ community!

2023: $3788 (1st place)
2025: $1695 (2nd place)
2024: $1245 (3rd place)
2026: $535 (4th place)

FLOAT WINNERS: The freshmen took over with their sci-fi themed float, scoring first place in our Float event! Our remaining classes trailed behind, with 2023, 2025, and 2024 placing second, third, and fourth, respectively.

MEX AND OTHER RESULTS: Our classes put on spectacular MEX performances last Friday. For our final results, we have 2023 in first place, 2025 in second place, 2024 in third place, and finally, 2026 in fourth place. We loved seeing the final culmination of weeks of practice and hard work!

Winners for scavenger hunt, canned food sculpture, banner painting, class song, spirit video, and t-shirt were also announced during last Friday’s pep rally. To check out all the final scores, visit https://homecoming.tjhsst.edu/.

FINAL RESULTS

1st place: 2023 (4525 points)
2nd place: 2024 (3025 points)
3rd place: 2026 (2591 points)
4th place: 2025 (2484 points)

Congratulations to 2023 for taking home this year’s Hocoszn and to all the classes for showing up with tons of spirit and dedication throughout this week! We truly could not have done any of this without you all.
As we close out on this chapter of the story, we’d like to give a tremendous thanks to everyone in the TJ community - students, staff, and parents - for making this year’s Homecoming one to remember.
