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

Introducing TMSA’s New Principal

prin_parkerWe have a new principal! It is with great pride that the TMSA Governing Board announces that Cheryl Parker has accepted the position of Principal of TMSA. Cheryl Parker brings eight years of administrative experience to the job, both as an academy director and interim principal at TMSA, and as an instructional coach in mathematics in the APS system. As Academy Director, Parker instituted several notable innovations that have directly led to an enhanced CCRP score. As interim principal, she has proven that she has the dedication and the work ethic necessary to carry out the most important job at TMSA. Parker’s leadership style is hands-on, engaged, and transformative. She understands both the strengths that we have as a charter school and the challenges that we face moving forward. It is her stated desire to lead TMSA to stronger academic results and to continue to support education of the whole child—mentally, physically, and artistically.

The whole TMSA community should know just how rigorous was the job search for principal. The search committee—composed of Robert Baker, DeAndre Pickett, and Bianca Motley Broom—reviewed more than eighty candidates from six different states. They picked twelve candidates from this field for a first round of interviews. The goal was to produce 2-4 finalists for on-campus interviews. Initially, four were chosen. Although two candidates dropped out of this final round, the search committee was confident in moving forward because the best two candidates from the first round of interviews were still coming to campus. After fully evaluating the on-campus interviews of the candidates, as well as their overall credentials, the governing board chose Cheryl Parker.

Since its inception, TMSA has hired three principals. This was by far the most talented pool of candidates from which the governing board has selected a principal. This made the process difficult, if only because the competition was so stiff. And the governing board is confident that it has selected the best candidate in Cheryl Parker.

Thanks to all who participated in the process by participating in the PTO Q&A sessions and sending us your thoughts. We took every single comment into consideration as we made this decision.
