September Teacher of the Month and PTSA Surprises
The PTSA showed some love to our student and faculty chosen Teacher of The Month, Mrs. Jessica Buckley. She received $200 to be used for instructional purposes and a few other goodies. Mrs. Wagenheim received some funds for the garden and Mrs. Lassiter received some funds for theater. Each teacher received a Bundt cake too!
The students also got in on the fun. Each teacher chose one student who exhibited our Core Values to receive a Bundt cake. The August Student’s of The Month received one as well.
Thank you to Mr. Tolbert and the PTA for the generous donations. We had many community donators as well! Thank you!!
It was a great day!

Bryant HS Soccer Try-Outs
The Bryant HS Soccer teams will be holding tryouts soon.
Boys Soccer begin tryouts next week Monday 9/18 and Girls will begin the following week on Monday 9/25.
I have attached flyers for both the Boys and Girls tryouts.
Eastwood 7th and 8th graders and TMS-M & TASPA 7th and 8th graders zoned for Bryant or who intend to attend Bryant in 9th grade may participate. Students will need to get a physical and begin/complete/update their Dragonfly accounts.
I have attached the AHSAA physical form and a handout about Dragonfly listing the items that need to be completed.
Health Heroes Flu Vaccine
Dear TMSE/TMSM Families,
Health Heroes will be coming on October 10,2023 to administer flu vaccines. The paperwork will be coming home the week of 9/25/2023 for you to fill out and sign if you wish your child to receive their flu vaccine at school. If you work for TCS and your child is covered under your PEEHIP insurance, please call Nurse Kristina at 205-759-3660 or email at email@example.com by October 1.
We are half-way through the first nine weeks of school. Students will bring home progress reports today along with other pertinent information that will allow you to keep up with your child's progress. If you have any questions or need anything, please do not hesitate to contact us!
School Picture Day
School Picture Day is on October 5th.
SEE SOMETHING, HEAR SOMETHING.......SAY SOMETHING
We will discuss this as a school on a regular basis (SEE SOMETHING, HEAR SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING) but it is essential for parents to have conversations and discuss expectations with your students in regard to safety and discipline. We are encouraging students to report ANYTHING they feel uncomfortable about or that concerns them. Students can report directly to a teacher, principal, or staff member, email, complete a Let's Talk, etc. If they share information with you, please let us know.
Parent or Student Concerns
I am always available to speak with you about any concerns you or your students may have. Send me an email or give me a call in the office so we can schedule a time that works for both of us. We are in this TOGETHER!
