Good Evening TMSA Families!

This is Principal Burke with your updates for the week of December 6, 2020. I hope you had a great weekend and are staying safe.

  • MAP Testing will take place for 4th and 5th grades Dec. 8 – Dec. 11. Your homeroom teachers will share the information with you prior to the testing. They will test in Reading, Math and Science. Please be sure your Tiger gets in and does their best on their own. We are looking for GROWTH!
  • TMSA Parent Academy is offering an ESL class on line! Parents/guardians will learn English skills and gain information on how to support their student's academic success. Class begin Tuesday, December 8th @ 6:00pm. Sign up here
  • The TMSA Board of Directors will hold a special virtual board meeting on Tuesday, December 8th, at 7:30 PM, to discuss the plan for reconstructing a new K-8 school and relocating Triangle High School in Apex, NC, for the 2022-2023 school year. Please click here to join.

  • Our TMSA Parent Advisory Council meeting is Thursday, December 9th @ 6:30 pm. This is open to all k-12 parents. Feel free to join us. 
  • December’s Reading/Literacy Event is on December 10 @ 6 pm. Your Tiger should not miss this event!
    Update on the last day for students to submit is December 16. This is a change from last week’s message. Be sure all assignments, classwork, projects etc. are submitted before then. There we not be any extensions available over the winter break.
  • Some of our families are in need due to the pandemic and we are asking those that able to share kindness and give, to consider making a donation on our “Virtual Kindness Tree”. The items must be new and dropped off at TMSA Elementary by Tuesday, December 15th between 9 am and 3 pm. Please call 336-763-2771 if you need your donation picked up or need to schedule a different donation time. If your employer/company would like to participate we can arrange pickup and provide our 501c3 information for tax purposes. Thank you for your generosity!
  • Our Winter Concert/Talent show will take place December 17 @ 630 pm. The zoom information for the event will be shared. It is going to be amazing!

We continue to focus on acts of kindness. Below is a list of ideas for you and your Tiger to consider…

  • Have a cleanup party at a beach or park.
  • While you’re out, compliment a parent on how well-behaved their child is.
  • Leave a kind server the biggest tip you can afford.
    When you’re throwing something away on the street, pick up any litter around you and put that in the trash too.
  • Pay the toll for the person behind you.
  • Put 50 paper hearts in a box. On each cutout write something that is special about your partner or a friend. Give them the box and tell them to pull out a heart anytime they need a pick-me-up.
  • Donate to the TMSA Elementary Virtual Kindness Tree.

I would like to leave with this quote on Kindness…

“Be a little kinder than you have to.” – E. Lockhart

Those are the updates for the week ahead. Let’s make it a great week! Goooooo Tigers!

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Burke
