Dear TMSE Families,

I cannot believe the end of the 2020-2021 school year is here. We had many successes and challenges, yet we continued the work to ensure the safety and educational needs of our students were met.

Thank you for your support as our school community responded to the unexpected invasion of COVID-19 last year. I am so proud of how our TMS-E students, parents, faculty, and staff have handled the demands of protecting our school family while continuing to educate our students during these most unusual circumstances. Our focus continued to ensure that every child, every day was finding a way to feel connected and challenged by new learning experiences.

Our students have grown so much this year! They worked hard inside the classroom and through virtual learning. Their perseverance and dedication to learning is commendable!

Parents, I want to thank you all for your continued support, understanding, and patience shown this year. We are appreciative of everything you have done to support TMSE and our teachers.

Finally, I want to wish all of our students and families a safe, relaxing and enjoyable summer! Please enjoy your summer and make many memories! I want to wish our current 5th grade students all the best for middle school.

I will see the rest of you in August.

For the remainder of this school year and the summer students will keep their TCS-provided devices (Chromebooks and hotspots) unless you are leaving TCS or if you do not want the device over the summer.

Students will need to keep their device plugged in and charged over the summer.

Be aware that beginning on July 6, 2021, students may not have access to some digital resources provided by TCS. On August 1, 2021, students will not be able to login to Chromebooks until the beginning of the school year due to password changes.

Students should be aware they are expected to care for and return with their Chromebook, case, and charger next school year. Device Responsibility Agreement
