02/15/18: Troup County School System Reviews Security Measures LCMS Doors

As more details arise of yesterday’s tragic event at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fl., we want to take this time to offer our thoughts and prayers to the students, faculty, families, and entire community that were impacted.

As a school system, we take safety very seriously. We have measures in place at each of our schools to make TCSS a safe learning environment and we want to share some of them with you.

  1. We employ School Resource Officers (SRO) for each of our middle and high schools. If a student feels their safety is being compromised, they can talk to the SRO.
  2. We have placed new or updated camera equipment and glass security doors in several of our buildings using Education SPLOST funds. We will continue the work until all are updated.  
  3. We work directly with the Sheriff’s Office and LaGrange Police Department on security related matters within our buildings.
02/12/18: Principal Candace McGhee on I Heart Literacy Amazing Grace Book

Candace McGhee, Principal of Ethel W. Kight Elementary, couldn't wait to share her favorite children's book for I Heart Literacy Week, a week designed for TCSS educators and students to share their favorite books in support of the Troup County School System's priority on increasing literacy rates for students. Literacy is a larger concept that encompasses skills like reading, comprehension, writing, and vocabulary. McGhee said:

"My favorite children's book is Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman. The story is about a little girl named Grace who tries out for the role of Peter Pan in the school play, even though her classmates say she cannot play Peter Pan because she is black and a girl. Grace is determined and believes that she can do anything she sets her mind to.

I love this story because it truly has an inspirational message about believing in yourself no matter what other people say, following your dreams to become whatever you want - regardless of what others think - and remembering that you are capable of doing and becoming anything you want no matter your gender or race."

02/09/18: Inclement Weather Make-Up Day Announced Harper Grace
Due to TCSS experiencing six inclement weather days, there will be one student instructional make-up day on March 9th as stated in the school calendar. The last day of school for students is still May 22nd.

TCSS EMPLOYEES will need to make-up two days of work time through documentation or submission of annual leave. More information will be forthcoming from your supervisor about documentation for the make-up days.

In addition, CERTIFIED TEACHERS will have two professional learning days scheduled for May 30th and May 31st. These are PLU days for teachers. More information will be shared in the upcoming months on how the PLU days will work.

Callaway Middle School PBIS Bank is Open
Students deposting PB.IS Cav cash into the PBIS bank

With the help of CB&T and Jackson Heating and Air, some Callaway Middle School students banked their Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Cavalier Cash to help them save towards better prizes.

With PBIS, students earn ‘Cav Cash’ bucks through exhibiting school behaviors that are Cooperative, Mindful and Successful. These three behaviors help positively change school culture and climate.
