TPMS Magnet Program

April 30 2023 Update

Hello Magnet Families!  

Did you make it to see the Drama and Music Departments' production of Newsies Jr.?  If you missed it, you missed a real treat.  Our kids really put on an amazing show and the hard work (and fun) really showed through.  More creativity will be on display on May 16th and 17th when the Orchestra performs, and in June when the 8th graders present their "Scene's Night".   We also have an SGA dance coming up on May 18th which should be lots of fun.  Also in May, and much less fun, is the end of year State testing.  Read all about it in the table below. 

No WE SHINE night this year

Watch this space to begin planning for an elaborate STEAM night/WE SHINE night for next year with student projects.

MCPS Youth Climate Summit

  • Montgomery County Public Schools and students from across the District are hosting its annual Youth Climate Summit on Saturday, April 22, 2023, from 8:30 am to 3:35 pm at Tilden Middle School. Details about the event, including student and mentor interest forms, are available on the event website. 

  • The goal is for middle and high school students to learn about climate change on a personal level through plenary speakers and workshops that demonstrate actionable ways to engage in the climate movement. The Summit concludes with participants being mentored through the process of writing a climate action plan, a project outline they can implement in their school or community.  

  • Centralized transportation will be available, and lunch will be provided. Students will earn SSL hours for their participation. Transportation hubs will be finalized prior to the event based on enrollment.
