Our first Homecoming weekend was a great success.

We kicked it off with a Pep Rally on Friday. There was a student-faculty basketball game, a wheelbarrow race, the announcement of our Homecoming court, and the grande finale; Mr. T received a pie in the face!

On Saturday night, we had our first Homecoming dance. We congratulate Sheena Dean for being crowned our first Homecoming Queen and Duncan Wall for being crowned our first Homecoming King! It was a great night that is sure to be remembered by all.

Parent Spotlight: Mrs. McCloughan

The TMSA High School staff and students would like to extend our gratitude to Mrs. Erin McCloughan, one of our high school parents. Mrs. McCloughan has been volunteering endless hours to help successfully plan our social events. We are thankful, especially, for the time that you helped us all with the Homecoming events. None of this could have been done without your support and dedication. We thank you!

HOSA’s Heartbeat

"*A key part of deciding which college to go to is finding a good fit. And a great way to get more information is to visit the colleges in person. On Thursday November 21st, the junior class from TMSA attended another awesome tour of NCSU college. The guides shared the history of this beautiful college, while informing the students about the admission process for applying to this prestigious school. Hello, I am Maryam Moghul, the HOSA Heartbeat Editor. An individual equipped with determination and perseverance is fairly successful, just as a solitary brick is relatively durable. However, a team of such people, united by resolve and persistence, is an invincible force that exceeds the strength of one person. This is equivalent to a brick wall, fused together by the sealant of willpower and grit. Personally, this concept has been apparent to me over the brief period of a few weeks. I have observed and engaged in TMSA High School HOSA coming together as a student organization that recognizes the significance of teamwork. By using a joint effort to allocate responsibilities, discuss/share ideas, and plan collaboratively, we have set the bar high for our own selves from the very beginning. Our goal as a club is to educate the school community regarding health related topics, raising health awareness, and to benefit those in need of medical services to the best of our ability. So, welcome to the first edition of HOSA’s. Read more.

Holocaust Essay Contest

This poster competition is open to all North Carolina middle and high school students. The goal of this contest is to encourage students to learn about spiritual resistance, cultural resistance, and political activism during the Holocaust.Whether observing a religious holiday in a concentration camp, transporting a child on a bicycle so she could hide in a Christian home, or sharing recipes to keep spirits bolstered while starving in the woods, Jews and other victims of the Nazis remained hopeful and believed in the future.

CHARACTER EDUCATION trait for DECEMBER is COMPASSION

Sure, kids are egocentric and are sometimes convinced the world revolves around them and them alone. Sure, kids fight with their siblings and don’t give a hoot about hurting their sibling’s feelings.

But kids have an amazing amount of empathy. Even babies as young as a year old will pat another baby who is crying. Children identify with a hurt child on the playground and don’t want to see anyone in pain.Read more at Compassion Parent Newsletter ---- Character Education Monthly Traits-Printable Version
