03/28/2017: TCSS Awarded for Parental Involvement by Georgia Department of Education Richard Woods and student

Yesterday, Georgia’s State School Superintendent Richard Woods, along with other Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) representatives, visited Troup County School System (TCSS) to bestow an award for the Title I Parent Engagement Program.

 

The recognition comes from a November 2016 video and written entry into the GaDOE’s Parent Engagement contest. For the video and written submissions, TCSS showcased the theme Parent Engagement Rocks! Both items showcased programs that TCSS has implemented to include and garner support for parental involvement. In late November, the district was named one of the top four in parent engagement within the state.

03/28/2017: TCSS Students Prepare Jackie Robinson Writing Prompts for Scholastic Publishing Contest Entries students in class

Recently, students in Troup County School System (TCSS) received some encouraging news when asked to write essays about overcoming obstacles – their writings would be entered into a contest with Scholastic Publishing. The completed works would be shared with Sharon Robinson, the daughter of Jackie Robinson, before a winner was named.

 

Teachers and students focused on the book Promises to Keep; a story chronicling Jackie Robinson’s rise to prominence in Major League Baseball amid breaking the color barrier for the popular sport. The prompt asked students to show how they use Jackie Robinson’s values to face their own barriers, making the writing relevant to their personal lives. While the essay was a perfect addition to the TCSS curriculum, it was also a rigorous lesson that made students think beyond the classroom.
