Principal's Corner

Dear TMSA Parents and Guardians,

Spring is finally here! The weather is warming up, flowers are blooming, and the days are getting longer.  This is the time of year where students and teachers start to see the fruits of their labor.  With the upcoming MAP tests in April and EOG's and EOC's  in May, students and teachers can show off all of their hard work they have put forth this school year.  Mrs. Dawes, our testing coordinator, will be sharing with you in the near future some important information regarding the upcoming tests.  In the meantime, be sure students are getting plenty of rest and eat breakfast each day in order to maximize their performance.
