Tuscaloosa Magnet Schools-Elementary

The mission of the Tuscaloosa Magnet Schools is to motivate students to discover knowledge, create a better world, and serve in a way that respects others.

Tuscaloosa City School's International Baccalaureate programs inspire students to be lifelong learners, diverse thinkers, and caring individuals while encouraging international mindedness through inquiry and service to others.​

Today I pledge to be a critical thinker. I will be principled and demonstrate integrity with my actions and my words. I will be a caring person and always treat others with respect.

Essential Agreements

★I will strive to show the Learner Profile in my actions in and out of the classroom.

★I will work to make the world around me a better place.

It’s here! On Friday, September 2nd we will host our annual Kickoff Classic fun run. This will be our first fun run of the year and will kick off another great year in physical education. This run is meant to celebrate the start of the school year and sports seasons. We want our entire school to be very festive and dressed up! Students can dress in appropriate attire that shows off their favorite sport, team, or school subject. The bigger, the better! Students will run a little over a mile around the school and on the track. Please make sure they bring a bottle of water with them to school.

Parents, you are invited to attend during your child’s scheduled race time to run with them or simply cheer them on! However, we will require that parents remain outside the school building before, during, and after the race. The starting line will be near the bus circle on the playground side of the building and the finish line will be on the track behind the school. Please park in the lot in front of the building.

We look forward to seeing everyone on 9/2!
