TPMS Magnet Program
May 30 2023 Update
Hello Magnet Families!
Today's update features pictures of some of the amazing robots students are creating and programming in Mr. Moses' magnet computer class. It was great to see the students working so hard and taking such pride in their creations!
After two weeks of adjusted schedules for State tests followed by another week of make-up testing, we enter our final week of testing with students completing their MAP-M and MAP-R tests. Students are making up tests every day in every grade-level and if they miss a make-up session, we will pull them again on Friday. Friday, however, is the last day of the MAP test window.
Friday is also the day of the 8th grade dance. Volunteers are still needed so please consider helping chaperone the dance to make it a huge success.
Magnet Families Needed and Wanted on the PTSA
Magnet families are under-represented on the TPMS PTSA. Can you help change that?
Leadership roles and parent volunteers are what make TPMS great, and the more involvement there is, the better school is for yours and everyone else's child.
