TPMS Magnet Program

January 22 2023 Update

Hello Magnet Families!  The end of the semester is fast approaching.  This is the week to use parentVue to check your child's progress in classes and make sure that they don't have any assignments outstanding.  As classes wrap up, students are working on culminating projects like programs, scene nights (see image above), National History Day presentations, Forensic investiations and more.  In this week's update, I've included questions from the 6th grade SIGMA competition which Ms. Conley's students did in class.  We also have information about an upcoming leadership conference for girls (1/31).  The county has delayed sending out letters to new families accepted into next year's magnet program so our information night (for new families only) will be rescheduled to a date to be announced soon.

This month, RSVP for MoCoEmpowHER’s Leadership Workshop Relay Event on January 31st! This event is ideal for anyone interested in garnering skills in public speaking, graphic design, and advocacy!
