Welcome!

Meet your new Parent Liaison, Jamil Johnson-Pearson!
Jamil is excited to serve as a bridge of communication between students, parents and teachers. She has served TMSA through a number of volunteer activities since joining the TMSA community in 2013.
The goal of the parent liaison is to provide parents with practical information on how to support their kids through their studies and social interactions. Ultimately, we should understand how our hands play a significant role in the success of our children.
 
As parent liaison, Jamil is a listening ear for your concerns and aims to help find a resolution, if needed.
She can assist with:
  • parent-teacher meetings,
  • participate and provide information on school enrichment activities/fundraisers,
  • providing testing information to parents/guardians,
  • direct our community on resources for crisis situations,
  • help increase volunteerism,
  • set appointments and tours for interested parents and students.
 
 
Parent Resource Center is located upstairs in Rm 48.
Office Hours are 7:15 am - 11:15 am, also by appointment.
Uniform Shop & Resources are available during school hours, 7:15 am - 4:00 pm

When our kids feel the support from home and school, they become even more confident and focused!
 
It was HOT! But, it was FUN! 
What was fun about being hot?! 
Helping in the afternoon car line!
 
I encourage you to also volunteer in either the morning or afternoon car line!
Why?
*If you haven't volunteered in car line before, you will get a better understanding of how hard our staff works to get students safely to their cars.
*You could help set students and/or parents/guardians focus for the morning or afternoon with a smile paired with a "good morning" or "have a great evening"!
 
When you're ready, just click on the Weekly Wednesday Volunteer link and sign up to help out with car line!
 
Hope to see you soon!

Here's how you can be cautious and safe during these hot days!

Precautions and Tips to Stay Safe:

1.          Dangerous, potentially record-setting high temperatures in the high 90’s (some areas may experience temperatures with the heat index near 105® this afternoon). However; temperatures will be in the 90s all week. Stay hydrated and indoors as much as possible.

2.          Little-to-no rainfall predicted this week. Plan outdoor activities accordingly.

3.          Air quality issues throughout the day and potentially this week. Stay weather-informed.

Weekly Wednesday Volunteers

Hello Volunteer Team!

Thank you so much for deciding to give your time to assist with a variety of volunteer opportunities at our school!

Your involvement is what makes our school community so great!

Now that you are here, let's get started...

First, have you provided a current background check to the Parent Resource Center?

To volunteer at our school, the Fulton County School District requires us all to have annual background checks. You can visit your local police station or use the link www.24-7dat.com, choose tab "background" to receive a background check. (Fees may vary.)

Second, please review the available volunteer slots and choose your sign-up! (The length of time for volunteer activities can vary and may or may not take full 2 hours.)

Last, upon arrival to TMSA, all volunteers will need to sign in. Be sure to have your state issued identification available. Sign in sheets will be available at the front office and/or the parent resource center, upstairs, Room48.

Also, after your volunteer day is done, don't forget to log your time on www.trackitforward.com and keep track of all your volunteer activities and time. We may use the information gathered on Track It Forward to recognize our amazing volunteers by the end of the school year!

Your dedication and time is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for joining the Weekly Wednesday Volunteers! 

Be on the lookout for the Sign-Up Genius link every week!
