  • TCMS wants to HELP!

    One of the great things about having our students in an IB School is that they are learning the value of giving back and community service. Over the past few weeks we have all watched as Hurricane Harvey & Irma displaced many families and destroyed many buildings and homes.

  • It's Socktober Service Project Time!

    It’s SOCKTOBER! The Positive Peers class will be selling socks through the We Help Two organization to make available an artificial limb for someone in need around the world. For every 80 packages we sell, a limb will be provided. For every package we sell, we will also get to donate a warm pair of socks to the Ronald McDonald House and The Salvation Army. The cost is $12 for a package of 3 colorful socks. They come in different colors, shapes and sizes. Sales will be from October 16 through November 3. You can order them online at the TCMS webpage, or in the foyer from 8:35 to 9:00 in the morning.
