TPMS Magnet Program

November 22 2022 Update

Hello Magnet Families. It was wonderful to meet many of our families this week at our parent teacher conferences.  The photos above show some of the cool things happening at TPMS recently.  Ms. Martin and Mr. Moses were taped to a wall for charity!  The MCPS director of food services came to our school with new recipes for our students to sample.  And today, we had our traditional Turkey Trot race which was a huge success.  We have some exciting competitions coming up soon, so check out the details below!
