November 18, 2023 Volume #18
Good Morning Owls,
Thank you for another amazing week with your children. We hope that they all enjoyed Adulting Day and now you are looking forward to a relaxing week ahead. There will be NO WINGS UP WEEKLY next Saturday due to the Holiday. The Wings Up Weekly will resume on Saturday, December 2nd.
Remember 11th and 12th graders, Lone Star Classes will be taking place on Monday and Tuesday. Please remember that on these days, it is your responsibility and obligation to get to your LSC classes independently. Please communicate with your Lone Star professors if this poses any type of issue for you or your family.
The week we return, we will have our Fall Dance at Beckendorf put on by our incredible Student Council. The flyer can be found below and tickets can be purchased through School Cash Online.
The Final Exam Calendar is now released for our December Final Exams (see below). Please note that final exams cannot be taken early. Please look over the calendar carefully and let us know if you have any additional questions.
As we enter Black Friday and Holiday Shopping, the PCA would love to get some community support for the upcoming Bingo Fundraiser. Below is the Sign Up Genius and Amazon Shopping list with items they need to ensure a successful Spring Fundraiser.

Opt-in for TISD Human Sexuality Curriculum
November 8, 2023
Dear Parents and Guardians,
According to Texas State Law, it is mandatory for school districts to inform parents and guardians of each enrolled student about the intention to offer human sexuality instruction as part of the curriculum. This instruction is designed to address the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and intends to provide age-appropriate information to students. Human sexuality in Tomball is offered through instructional modules in the graphic.
In Tomball ISD human sexuality instruction IS NOT a component of any junior or high school course. These instructional modules are offered only with parent consent during non-instructional periods during the school day. These instructional modules will be offered in an online format through Apex learning with a classroom teacher. The human sexuality curriculum has been selected and approved by the TISD School and Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) and TISD Board of Trustees. All human sexuality material can be previewed at the Growth and Development section of the Tomball ISD SHAC website.
If you would like your child to access the human sexuality instruction, please access Home Access Center (HAC) to provide your consent by December 8, 2023
If you have any questions or need further clarification please contact Bob Thompson, Dean of Student Advancement at firstname.lastname@example.org

Junior and Senior Lone Star Calendar
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure effective communication and collaboration between Tomball Star Academy and Lone Star College, we are pleased to share with you an important resource designed to keep everyone on the same page.
Attached you will find a comprehensive calendar that includes significant dates from both TSA and LSC. This calendar aims to help you plan ahead, stay informed, and manage your schedules effectively. You'll notice that there are several dates in which TSA will have a student holiday, but LSC will not. On those days, it is your responsibility and obligation to get to your LSC classes independently.
