Dear Amazing Owls and Families,
We appreciate everyone who came to our PCA Bingo night to support Tomball Star! As we enter these next two week, remember that they are both short weeks. Friday 2/16 and Monday 2/19 are Holiday's for Tomball Star Academy however; they are not Holiday's for Lone Star College. Juniors and Seniors with classes at LSC on Monday, 2/19 will need to plan on attending, TSA transportation will not be provided.
Additionally, Friday, February 23 will be an ODD day here at TSA. All Juniors and Seniors will be expected to attend all TSA classes on campus that day. We will not run an 11:15 bus route home that that day.
Our PCA will have their February meeting on the 13th at 11:00am at Fajitas and Margaritas Mexican Kitchen in Tomball. This will be a general meeting but also celebration of the amazing success of Bingo Night!
Additionally, PCA will be here on Valentines Day selling Pura Via Bracelets ($8), and TSA Vinyl Stickers ($5). Support our PCA!
Senior Parent Meeting
We will have a Senior Parent meeting on February 20th at 6:00pm in the Tomball Star Cafeteria to go over all the spring events! We will discuss prom, graduation, awards ceremonies, and so much more! We look forward to seeing you all there!
We value culture here at TSA, and our vision this year is to provide high quality instruction and a learning environment that embraces personalized learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions/concerns
Electronic Hall Pass System
Over the next few weeks, you might hear your child begin talking about a new hall pass system that we will have at Tomball Star Academy. TSA will be moving to a virtual hall pass through a program called Securly or Pass.
An electronic hall pass system allows for TSA to:
- Always know where students are with a live dashboard.
- In an emergency, account for every child's location within seconds.
- Let students generate their own passes, for quicker response time.
- Facilitate appointments to make it easier for them to schedule assistance from staff at TSA.
Students will be able to access the pass system from the Chromebook that is issued by Tomball ISD. We will be informing students that there is an app that they can download from the apple or android store that makes this process simpler, but that will be a parental decision.

FRESHMAN BOWLING NIGHT
Lone Star Spring 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.
