Calling all parents with a love for Math! We are growing our TMSCA Teams this year. There are a couple of ways you can help. We need coaches for 3rd - 5th graders who will compete in in TMSCA tournaments. We need your expertise in the following categories:
* General Mathematics
* Number Sense (mental math)
* Calculator Applications
1. You can volunteer to coach at our weekly practices once a week or bi-weekly.
(We have lots of resources to assist you).
2. You can volunteer to record a lesson via video for our students to watch during
We would love to have your help as we build a strong and competitive TMSCA team.
Please contact Sheri Sims at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to volunteer! We appreciate you!

Hope you've all had a restful weekend. I told the students we've had a gradual entry with 3 days the first week, 4 days last week, and a whole 5 day week to look forward to next week!
This week in Math, we will be working with whole numbers and relationships between numbers with a special focus on place value. We will be taking our beginning of year assessments on paper and with chromebooks. These help me to see where the students are with the math they have learned in previous years and no preparation/studying is needed. We will also take a fact fluency test on Monday (x 0,1,2,5,10) and on Friday (x3,6). These are usually on Friday and take about 3 minutes of our time from passing out to picking up.
This week in Science, we will be exploring ways we can be safe in the science lab/classroom. By the end of the week, we will also have charts set up in our interactive notebooks to track our weather.
This week is statewide Celebrate Freedom Week.
Lunch Menu Changes for Monday: The meal on the 28th of Aug. will be served on the 11th of Sept. The regular menu will begin on Sept. 12th.
The Tomball High School Homecoming Parade is on Wednesday evening. The Homecoming football game is on Friday night. Our new coaching staff led the Cougars to a well-earned victory this past weekend in a season opening non-district game vs local 6A College Park High School. There is much excitement and school spirit in the air this fall!
Parent Orientation Night will be held on September 28, beginning at 6pm.
