Testing

The beginning of the 4th 9 weeks always means that EOGs are in our sights. We are working hard to prepare for those tests and you can help out too. Please make sure that your child gets a good night rest every night so they are ready to focus and work hard every day. Make sure they are doing all of their homework. Finally, if you have any questions you can always contact the teachers. Let's finish the year strong!

Early Release Day

We are going to have our last early release day on April 20th. Students will be released at 11:15 on that day.

TMS AVID

On April 7th, the 6th grade AVID elective classes went to Coastal Carolina Community College. This was an incredible experience for Trexler AVID. Students got to tour the campus to see all the different courses they have to offer and saw real classrooms, professors, and college students. CCCC really has many opportunities for students in our area including Cosmetology, Lab techs, EMS, welding, art, mechanics, and engineering are just naming a few.


Congratulations to Kaydin Williams who will represent TMS at the District AVID Night on Monday April 11. The event will be held at NHS and starts at 6:00.
