Dear Titan Families,

Congratulations to our award winning choir program! They just keep making us so proud! Out of the 139 students who sang at the KISD Solo and Ensemble Contest, ALL 139 received a 1st place, Superior Rating! AND . . . Bella A., Samantha E., Aulona A., Lilly B., Carlie D., Lyla G., Keira L., Mailey K., Kam M., Debbie P., Alexis N., Rooks R., Samuel R., Sheyla R., Autumn R., Janetzy V., Brooklyn T., Eden V., Lane W., Sally W., and Ryan Y. were awarded outstanding soloist for their above and beyond performances!

We recently missed acknowledging our wonderful administrative assistants and front office help here at TSMS. Led by the fabulous Denise Hernandez, Astrid Garcia, Ashir Ali, Gabby Penalillio Beltran, Joanna Schommer, and Carla Hackney not only help our students and families, but are a true gift to our staff. Thank you!

Nurse Jana DeGreek deserves extra special attention on May 10th as we celebrate National School Nurse's Day. Nurse Jana not only cares for our students day in and day out, but she is always available to our staff, too. TSMS simply wouldn't be the same without her!

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12, 2023. Our wonderful teachers are what make TSMS the success it is. Join Keller ISD in thanking a teacher and help us honor these difference makers!

Just another reminder as we start the assessment season--

All students should have their charged Chromebook with them each day at school. This is especially important on testing days. Students should shut down their Chromebooks completely every day rather than just closing them. The technology department has also recommended that all students update their Chromebooks prior to taking the online exams. If your student has an issue with his/her Chromebook, please have them bring the computer to the library or contact our librarian.

Clear Eyes! Full Heart! Can't Lose!
