Congratulations to our outstanding music teacher, Mr. Robby Chapman, who is the most recent recipient of the “Class Act” Award presented weekly by the 11 Alive News team and Ms. Donna Lowry. Mr. Chapman was nominated by a parent who has a Kindergarten student at TMSA. According to the nomination form, the following qualities of an elite teacher are just part of what makes Mr. Chapman and TMSA great:
· Knowledge of his subject area.
· Love of teaching.
· Ability to meet the needs of all students.
· Positive Attitude.
· Persistence in giving his personal best.
· Strong contributor to school and/or community.
Mr. Chapman and TMSA will be featured on 11 Alive News beginning Monday, April 21 at 6:20 a.m. The piece will also be available on the 11 Alive website.

Please make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast, attends school each day, and arrives prior to 7:45 a.m., as students who are tardy will not be admitted to class during the testing window.
The following is a great resource to help your child prepare for the CRCT: www.ixl.com.
If you have questions or concerns regarding the upcoming testing window, please contact Ms. Cheryl Parker, Upper Academy Director, or Ms. Shani Vickery, Student Support Manager and Testing Coordinator.
Calling All Volunteers For Mulch Day !
Mulch will be delivered for both playgrounds to spruce them up for the last two months of school!  We need many parent volunteers to spread mulch at both academies

Saturday, April 5 at Lower Academy at 8 AM
Saturday, April 19 at Upper Academy at 8 AM

With lots of hands on deck, these projects should be knocked out in a few hours.  We need at least 20 volunteers for each Academy - volunteers should bring shovels, pitchforks, rakes, wheelbarrows and gloves. Please email Anne at tmsastudentwelfare@gmail.com to volunteer.  
 
This is a great way to earn hours, get some exercise, meet other parents and to enhance our playgrounds! Even if you work less than 5 hours, you will earn 5 hours for the hard work!  If you can volunteer for both days, you will complete your volunteer hours ... and time is running out!
 
These volunteer events DO NOT require a background check, so this is a great way to fulfill your hours.
 
Thank you for your help!
