Trinity Springs MS Newsletter

January 4, 2022

Dear Titan Families,

Happy New Year!

Do you have a resolution for the new year? Some say to get healthy, others to make better grades, still others to make more time for what you enjoy, etc. Goals or resolutions are important. Here at TSMS we have the resolution or mission of authentically educating both students and staff through support, teamwork, and high expectations, by teaching, modeling, and mentoring. We use this goal to guide the rest of our school year.


The second half of the school year has started!

This is where we seek to really get into the heart of the learning. This is where the great strides and gains are made. Knowing this, please make every effort to have your child in school everyday. We know that attendance matters.


Don't forget to follow us on twitter @TSMSKeller and like us on FaceBook https://www.facebook.com/TrinitySpringsMiddleKISD.


Happy 2022!

Dr. Justin Barrett
