Dear TMSA Parents and Guardians,

Here are your weekly updates for the week of March 8, 2021:

(1) March is National School Violence Prevention Month and March 8th-12th will be Say Something Week for our TMSA Tigers. This week is designed to bring awareness to school violence prevention and to emphasize how students and trusted adults working together, can make schools safer. Parents please check your email and the school Facebook page for complete details about Say Something Week.

(2) The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction requires that all 11th grade students take the ACT exam. If you have not taken the ACT for 11th graders, it is required that you plan to test on the Makeup Test Date of March 23, 2021. Please complete the SURVEY by March 9, 2021 indicating your plan for participating in the ACT Makeup Exam.

(3) The Pre-ACT exam for 10th graders has been postponed until Tuesday, April 13, 2021. In North Carolina, all 10th-graders take the PreACT. This assessment measures what students have learned in their courses and helps educators identify the information that students still need to learn to succeed in college or a career. The PreACT also simulates the ACT testing experience by providing students early exposure to ACT test-quality questions.

Students who plan on participating in the exam will be required to come to campus and test in-person (face coverings and social distancing protocols will be strictly enforced). Please complete this survey by COB Tuesday, March 23, 2021, indicating your student's plan for participating in this exam administration.

(4) Homecoming campaigning for nominees are underway and will continue through March 10th. Students are allowed to campaign via social media platforms, but remember, all posts MUST be school appropriate, and ALL CAMPAIGNING MUST BE POSITIVE! The first round of voting will be March 12th.

(5) Seniors! The senior brunch is approaching soon. You do not want to miss this! RSVP with your first and last name. You can register via the senior group page. We can't wait to see you there!

Thank you and have a great week!
