TSA Information


    9/30/19 E-Mail

    Hi Parents,
    Welcome to TSA. I hope I have all of the parents on this mailing list. I am basing it off of an early interest list that may have inaccuracies.
    The TSA Officers have been working madly to get data in ready form for students wanting to do TSA. This past week, students have been making competition selections. We are fairly sure of the competitions offered, but we won't know for sure until Colorado TSA releases the 2020 competitions on 10/18. We will address any difficulties that this may introduce at that time.
    With that being said....
    We have officially launched TSA with the students. Students have been browsing the competitions and researching them this past week. Early this coming week, students will make one last final go at competition selections (they have to pick 5 and rate them by interest) and then the officers will places students into their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices. As this is a student organization run by the student officers, the officers have not decided yet how to handle conflicts when there are more people than the competition allows for, i.e. Digital Photography always has more people than slots available. This issue and project selection assignment will be resolved by mid- to end of week.
    Please talk to your son or daughter and ask them about what they are thinking about project selection.
    Lindsey Anderson and myself will reach out every week or two with a communication on various goings ons and items to know.
    Please don't hesitate to let us know of any questions or concerns.
    Thank you,
    Lindsey Anderson & Jason Kasper

    Good morning parents,
    The Student Officers have been hard at work doing a bunch of background work trying to get systems in place for student project rollout.
    During ME Time on Thursday, students will find out which of their top competition choices they will move forward with. We will do a soft rollout of the competitions by the end of the day Tuesday by sharing the slideshow with the students so they can come to the meeting with questions if needed.
    Due to this being our first time rolling out TSA at MMS, we are realizing that time may be an issue in getting projects done. To honor our obligation of keeping TSA during the school day, we are going to offer 2 in-school "Field Trip" days where students can work on their projects all day @ MMS. We were thinking one day between Thanksgiving break and winter break and the other day between winter break and February 1. If more time is needed, We will also offer one Saturday right before state competitions in addition to after-school work time after winter break until the state competition (late February).
    The official dates for State Competitions will not be released until Oct. 18th. Field trip info with follow after this information is released.
    Thank you,
    Lindsey Anderson & Jason Kasper
