Victor 3 Serving Others

The sixth-grade MERIT Victor Company recently spent the morning helping students at Hand-In-Hand Primary School. Sixth-grade students worked with Pre-K and Kindergarten students in small groups with reading and vocabulary, and spent time with students playing at recess. The Victor students then volunteered with Hands on Thomas County at five different locations: Second Harvest Food Bank, the Humane Society, Scott Senior Center, the Butterfly Garden, and collecting trash at Paradise Park. It was a wonderful day spent in serving others.

MERIT Movie Night MERIT Movie Night

TCMS MERIT families recently gathered for a night of circus fun at the TCCHS Stadium. MERIT students dressed as clowns and 'circus-goers'. Students and parents alike could take selfies with a clown, walk the tightrope, and play circus games. Concessions were filled with cotton candy and peanuts for the event. Families culminated the night by gathering on the football field to watch the movie "The Greatest Showman". Fiber optic wands and clown noses were purchased as souvenirs as the night wore on! "This was a MERIT-sponsored night to celebrate and show appreciation for the dedication and support of our MERIT families. It's been a great year!", says Dana Studdard, TCMS MERIT Coordinator.
