Digital Learning Updates

Hello TPMS Community. During virtual learning, I will be providing enrichment activities and communicating with students through the TPMS Media Center MyMCPS Homepage. I hope that this page will provide a sense of community by giving students a safe space to interact with one another and share a love of reading and learning. We will be sharing book recommendations, read-alouds, and other fun activities. It is also a place to find links to information sources that can be used for any projects your teachers might assign.

Please also check out the links at the top of this website. You can access eBooks through Destiny Discover and the Sora app. Students log in to borrow books using their MCPS student ID number and password. I will be adding lots of new eBooks and eAudiobooks. At the top of this page, you will also find links to online learning resources and research projects, as well as information about the Black-Eyed Susan reading program and Digital Citizenship activities for families through Common Sense Media.
