Memorial Day

Monday May 30th 2016 is Memorial Day. We'd like to say thank you to all of those that have served and scarified for our country. There will be no school on Monday in observance of this holiday.

Preparing your Computer for Testing

7th and 8th graders are going to need their 1:1 laptop for testing so it is very important that they are in good working order. If you have a problem students should following these easy steps:


  1. Please a work order on the 1:1 Google Doc (http://txms1to1services.wikispaces.com/home) for any issues you are having with you device as soon as you notice a problem. This will give us enough time to fix it before EOGs.
  2. Make sure you have your charger. If you cannot find it please let the Media Coordinator know. There is a $75.00 fee for lost chargers and you will need to take care of this before testing begins on May 25. TMS does not have spare chargers
  3. Make sure that you bring your 1:1 device and charger each day and that you device is fully charged.

Preparing your Computer For the End of the Year

Students…if you haven’t been saving your files to your Onedrive now is the time to start backing things up. Don’t forget that there are a couple of ways in which to back up your files:

1-drag and drop straight into your Onedrive from your computer libraries (documents, pictures, & videos)-DON’T FORGET YOUR CAN DRAG AND DROP FOLDERS INTO ONEDRIVE BUT YOU HAVE TO BE USING CHROME NOT INTERNET EXPLORER


2-save each file to Onedrive by clicking File>Save As>Onedrive Onslow County Schools-REMEMBER TO LOOK FOR THE BLUE CLOUD ICON AND IT MUST SAY “ONEDRIVE ONSLOW COUNTY SCHOOLS”


If you have any questions about your Office 365 account, Onedrive, or backing up your files please see Mrs. Sydes for assistance.

Summertime with Technology

Summer and Your Technology

The summer break is quickly approaching and that brings many hours of potential fun and excitement. While it is important that students remain connected with their friends during the summer months that doesn’t mean they have to be on a device 24/7. There are many ways your student can enjoy family and friends that include various levels of technology use to no technology at all.

Falcon Sports

2015/2016 was a great year for Trexler athletics. Our softball team took home the conference championship and our cheerleading squad took first place for the second year in a row! The girls’ soccer team also had a successful year, with six wins, two ties, and zero losses. The baseball team also made great strides, only losing one game. Although we did not walk away with the conference champ title for each sport, we saw tremendous growth and spirit. Way to go falcons!

Thank you to all our parents and the Century Club for your support!
