Dear Parents,

MAP Assessment: Most students have completed the MAP math and reading assessments. The family report is being mailed home later in the week. We are asking for all parents to review this report as this information is the most accurate information regarding your child's math and reading achievement as of this fall. Students who score beneath the grade level benchmark will be contacted in order to put in place interventions for your child.

Student IDs: Every student was given a student ID card on picture day. These student ID's are the system we use for lunch purchase, checking in tardy or a student early dismissal. The picture ID is also a safety measure which is used for student identification. We are asking all students to have their picture ID with them each day at school. We have many students who are wearing them with a lanyard or carrying them in a wallet. Please work with your student to provide them with a means for carrying their picture ID.

SchoolCash: Below are directions on how to create your account for SchoolCash online. We often have people asking if they have paid for a yearbook, fieldtrip, etc. This program will enable to you to keep track of purchases as well as provide receipts. We will also be having clubs paid through this program as well. Please create your account today. At this time, only 30% of the TMS families have registered. This is an excellent pathway in which to pay for school payments, field trips, etc.
