Underclass Appreciation Day

Students’ year of hard work and dedication to their education was recognized with the annual Appreciation Day at Thomas County Central High School. This year’s event was held Tuesday, May 12, in the school’s gym. Appreciation Day is held at the end of each school year and recognizes achievements of underclassmen (freshman, sophomore and junior students). “We are proud to celebrate all of the accomplishments of our underclassmen,” Principal Trista Jones said.  “It is exciting to recognize students for their hard work, and we hope it will help them continue to strive for excellence.”

Thomas County Central High School students interested in education recently observed a different style of teaching. Early Childhood Education student apprentices and interns toured a nearby Montessori school in Tallahassee on Thursday, April 2. The Seminole Montessori School, located in Tallahassee, is a private school that takes on a different way of teaching children. Their “hands-off” approach is very different than the typical public school teaching style. “I love to expose our students to different styles and philosophies of education,” Early Childhood Education teacher Cindy Carnes said. “I truly feel that we can teach best when we pull the best parts of various philosophies into our teaching practices.”
