    Secret Pals!  To celebrate our teachers this year, we are asking families if they would like to adopt a "secret pal" teacher.  What this means is you would choose a teacher from Thurgood to receive their “interest survey” on favorite things.  From there, throughout the year, you could leave little treats or notes of encouragement at random to be placed in their mailbox.  We are hoping this keeps morale high, and celebrates teachers all year!  Marianne Hillyer will be distributing forms as well as ensuring no teacher is selected twice.  Please email Marianne at mariannehillyer@gmail.com if you are interested.  Thank you for supporting TMFMS!”


    PTSA will be selling spirit gear: t-shirts, sweatshirts, face masks, waterbottles, magnets and lanyards during the pick-up for new computers on Oct 26th and Oct 31st.  We will also have Culver’s calendars available for $3.00 each.  These calendars have about $50 worth of coupons in them that can be used at any local Culvers.   Payments accepted will be cash or check.  If you would like to pre-order, go to - https://tmfms.new.memberhub.store/store  to place your order.   (If you have ordered spirit gear and have not received it please email thurgoodmarshallptsa@gmail.com)


    325 parents are excused from the mandatory meeting in November as they became members in August and September!   If you are not sure you are on the list, please contact the PTSA at Thurgoodmarshallptsa@gmail.com  - Please become a member of PTSA, it benefits all students, teachers and our school! 


    The PTSA welcomed back teachers this year with breakfast and are planning other ways to celebrate our teachers.   We have provided hand sanitizers and disposable masks to be used in the classrooms and will continue to do so as needed.   Five teachers so far have been reimbursed $50 for classroom supplies.  This program will run until November 15th   


    Check out the PTSA page on the school website for other upcoming events and programs as well as our FB page.  If you have any questions please email us at thurgoodmarshallptsa@gmail.com or call Marianne 727-512-8532 – The information in this meeting will be posted to the website for future reference.
