    For those participating in District Science Day, please complete the registration process, including uploading of the required forms, research plan, consent form and abstract where indicated. You should have this completed by Friday, February 24th.  We have much planning to do and cannot have last minute registrations or you will not be able to participate. We are expecting 160 projects at District this year, a 35% increase over last year. Having time to prepare for facilities, judges, food, awards, etc. requires knowing who and how many students are coming on March 11th.

    The LAST DAY to order a yearbook is Tuesday, February 28th – less than a week left! If a student wants a yearbook they need to order one ASAP. Visit YBPay.lifetouch.com and use the Yearbook ID Code: 6538917

    Thank you to everyone who helped donate to the Canned Food Drive.  Together, TMS donated 1,242 canned foods to be given to the Tipp City Needy Basket.  This is a great accomplishment.  Because of that, we met our first 4 goals and earned 4 spirit days next week:

    Monday Feb. 27: Hat Day

    Tuesday Feb. 28: PJ Day

    Wednesday Mar. 1: Jersey/Sport Day

    Thursday Mar. 2 : Mix Match Day
