2. Find school supply lists online or click the button below.

Parent News Sign-Up

Hello TMSA parents.

This is Wayne Whitesides, parent, and owner of the company developing the TMSA website. As some of you know, there have been a few hiccups with getting news from the teachers per your grade level. We have been aware of the situation and have diligently worked to resolve the issues. We believe this is now all fixed, however, to do so we need you all to sign back up (Even those of you who signed up today) and check all the appropriate grade levels and extracurriculars that your child is participating in. You will automatically be signing up for the TMSA general newsletter that goes out to keep you informed of general school news and events.

Please click here to go to the new sign-up form.

Every day at 4:00 pm you will now receive an email from the school that will contain any news that has been posted within the last 24 hours by faculty and staff within the categories you selected. All posts will now come within the same email, and each article will be separated by the headline, grade level and teacher that posted the news.

We hope that you find this to be a much easier and convenient system for you, our incredible teachers and staff at TMSA.

Thank you
Wayne Whitesides
