TPMS Magnet Program

March 12 2023 Update

Hello Magnet Families!  Our snow-less winter turns into March Madness as we make our way to Spring Break.  Congratulations to our TPMS Science Bowl team which won 2nd place at last weekend's tournament. (see pictures above).  This week, students will be taking the Md. Survey on Thursday.  Remember that we have early dismissal on the Ides of March, and look below for details about joining the rigor committee which will, among other things, help plan the TPMS WE SHINE event which is the evolution of the TPMS Steam night  (for those of you who remember that.)



In years past, STEAM night was an incredible event where students presented their science projects while outside scientists and artists came to TPMS to showcase their research and talents.


This year, we are trying a new slant on that by having TAKOMA WE SHINE on Thursday, June 8th.  Like Steam night, students will be able to create and display original research projects, but so can afterschool groups, outside presenters, and other TPMS departments.


Our vision is to show how we can shine in everything from math, science, literature, language, even athletics. 


We are looking for parents to join our Rigor committee to help plan this event, contact outside presenters, mentor students through original research, and look for ways to improve rigor in every class.
