Prepare Your Computer for Testing

7th and 8th graders are going to need their 1:1 laptop for testing so it is very important that they are in good working order. If you have a problem students should following these easy steps:


  1. Please a work order on the 1:1 Google Doc (http://txms1to1services.wikispaces.com/home) for any issues you are having with you device as soon as you notice a problem. This will give us enough time to fix it before EOGs.
  2. Make sure you have your charger. If you cannot find it please let the Media Coordinator know. There is a $75.00 fee for lost chargers and you will need to take care of this before testing begins on May 25. TMS does not have spare chargers
  3. Make sure that you bring your 1:1 device and charger each day and that you device is fully charged.

Concerts

We had our Orchestra Concert on Tuesday night. All the students played beautifully. Next week on May 23rd we will have a band concert at RHS at 6:30. Come out and enjoy some great music.

Falcon Sports

  1. The Falcon Runners wrapped up their season with a great showing at the conference track meet on Thursday afternoon. The weather would not cooperate with the baseball team for much of the week but they did get a chance to play Dixon on Thursday and lost after a hard battle. On Monday they will play New Bridge at TMS at 4:00.
  2. 6th and 7th grade students interested in trying out for Trexler’s softball, football, and/or cheerleading team needs to sign up in the front office by then end of the day on Tuesday, May 24th. Tryouts for softball and football will not be held until next school year in August; however, students need to go ahead and submit the required Onslow County Schools sports paperwork which includes a medical physical not older than a year. Dates for Cheerleading tryouts have not been set but could be during Teacher Workdays at the end of the school year or in August. Tryouts for Football and Softball will be held in August



Backing Up Your Computer

Students…if you haven’t been saving your files to your Onedrive now is the time to start backing things up. Don’t forget that there are a couple of ways in which to back up your files:


1-drag and drop straight into your Onedrive from your computer libraries (documents, pictures, & videos)-DON’T FORGET YOUR CAN DRAG AND DROP FOLDERS INTO ONEDRIVE BUT YOU HAVE TO BE USING CHROME NOT INTERNET EXPLORER


2-save each file to Onedrive by clicking File>Save As>Onedrive Onslow County Schools-REMEMBER TO LOOK FOR THE BLUE CLOUD ICON AND IT MUST SAY “ONEDRIVE ONSLOW COUNTY SCHOOLS”


If you have any questions about your Office 365 account, Onedrive, or backing up your files please see Mrs. Sydes for assistance.
