Online Meet Schedule- THIS WEEK

In December we were informed that the meets we planned to attend in January were cancelled, therefore we are giving kids another opportunity to compete with an online TMSCA meet this week.  Students singed up for the tests they wished to take at our last after school club and ice cream social. We will be splitting these tests over two afternoons this Wednesday January 9th, and Thursday January 10th after school.  The schedule is outlined below. There will not be a late bus option, therefore all students must be picked up in the car rider line at the specified pick up time on the daily schedule.  If a student is only staying for 1 of the two tests, they will just be seated in an adjacent classroom and will have the same pick up time.

 

Wednesday

General Math- 40 min test- 3:30-4:10

Number Sense- 10 min test- 4:20-4:30

Student Pickup Time: 4:30 in the car rider line

 

Thursday

Science - 40 min test- 3:30-4:10

Calculator-30 min test- 4:15-4:45

Student Pickup Time: 4:45 in the car rider line

If you have questions about which tests your child is signed up to take, please feel free to email me.



No TMSCA today

Just a reminder that no clubs or late buses will be meeting today.  All students will be sent home their regular way.  Have a  very Merry Christmas :) 

Thursday TMSCA Holiday Party

This Thursday we will meet as an entire TMSCA group for an ice cream social during club time.  We will be providing ice cream, bowls, and spoons and are asking the kids to bring their favorite toppings to share!  A few clubs were announced cancelled for this week because their sponsors are unable to stay, but all TMSCA students are welcome to stay for this since we will have plenty of other sponsors to cover.  We will have music, lots of sugar, and some math challenges to work on in groups!

Klein Collins Meet

Parents, the Klein Collins meet that was cancelled last weekend was rescheduled for December 1st.  I have re-opened the google form for you to register your child for the meet.  If you registered for the first date, please fill out the form again so that I know that the new date works for you as well.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Klein Collins Meet- RESCHEDULED

Please see the email below that I received this evening about the Klein Collins meet this Saturday.  I will follow up with more information for a sign up for the new date a little closer to time.  I apologize for any inconvenience. 
 
Dear Math Sponsors/Coaches/Parents:
 
I would like to inform you and your students that the Klein Collins Intermediate Math and Science Tournament on Saturday, November 10, 2018 has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 1, 2018.  I’m sorry for the late change in the date, but I do hope you are available for the new date.  

First Competition- ONLINE MEET

Our first competition will be held on campus next week on Tuesday/Thursday during club times.  We are participating in the online TMSCA MS Kick-off meet, and we have asked all students who are planning to compete this year to make arrangements to attend next week.  We have many students who have signed up in multiple areas and this will help us to identify strengths and areas of growth to better know how to prepare these kiddos for success in TMSCA this year.  Students should have brought home a flyer that needs to be returned Monday so we can prepare for the correct number of tests.  Our testing times are listed below.  Students DO NOT need to stay after if they are not testing in one of the two areas.  Our coaches will be proctoring and helping to grade tests, there will not be tutorials on these dates for the tests. 

 

On Tuesday we will dismiss ALL TMSCA Calculator and General Math Testers right at dismissal (2:50) to go to Mrs. Baudoin’s room.  We will use Mrs. Mohles room for testing.

Calculator - 30 min (3-3:30)

On Thursday we will dismiss ALL TMSCA Number Sense and Science Testers right at dismissal (2:50) to go to Mrs. Baudoin’s room.  We will use Mrs. Mohles room for testing.

CLUBS START THURSDAY Oct. 4th

Reminder that clubs start next week on Thursday.  All students will need to report to the library and will break into smaller groups to meet their TMSCA coach and learn more about the tests they will be preparing for.  Students will either need to sign up for late buses or be picked up in our back car drive at 4:30.
