Howdy Titan Family!
We are already at the week before Thanksgiving Break!
I am so proud of the hard work that our Titan Students and Staff show every day! They are going to get to show how that hard work is paying off with our Middle of Year MAP testing. I am excited to see how our Titans have grown, and our teachers are utilizing the data they are getting from all of the assessments to keep pushing our Titans!
We will be continuing our Kindness Challange throughout November, and I hope y'all are finding ways to connect that at home.
Friday, we will be ending our week with a Student/Staff Volleyball game! This will be an event that all of our Titans will get to attend, and PTA will be selling concessions to end this week with some fun!
Speaking of PTA, our numbers are already higher than last year, but we want to keep growing! Joining PTA is an easy way to show your support for TSMS and does not require anything beyond filling out the form online and joining! If you need more information for this, or want to join and participate even more, please reach out to our AMAZIG PTA president: email@example.com
I hope you all have a wonderful break next week and come back ready for our final push before the Winter Break!

8th grade students:
Personalized Course Selection is now open for current 8th grade students to select their courses for the 2024-25 school year using the Student Portal in Aeries.
Students will access the "Academic Plan" within the "Classes" tab. Students will need to enter their course requests in Academic Plan. Instructions on how to enter courses in the Academic Plan can be found following this link: Step By Step Guide to Selecting High School Courses in Aeries Student Portal. Please visit the Keller ISD Counseling website for other helpful links.
Current eighth-grade students will need to enter their four-year plan in Academic Plan. Middle school counselors and advisory teachers will be assisting eighth-grade students with this process. In January, high school counselors will meet with each eighth-grade student to ensure the four-year plan is complete, an endorsement has been selected, and the four-year plan contains all of the courses required for graduation.
Counselors will advise students to ensure the student is on track to complete graduation requirements and endorsements.
Wednesday, November 1, 2023: Aeries portal will open for all students to begin entering/editing their course requests in Academic Plan
Friday, February 9, 2024: Aeries portal will close for students to make changes to their requests
