Thomas County Schools Summer Reading Challenge

The Thomas County School System wants students to READ this summer!  Did you know that students can have up to a 2-3 month loss in reading ability over the summer?  It's important for students to spend time sharpening their reading skills!

Each school has developed a summer reading challenge for students.  We would like for students to read for 15-30 minutes everyday this summer.  The guidelines and requirements vary by school.  Please click the links below for more information about each school's guidelines.  If you need more information, please talk to the media specialist at each school.  The guidelines are for the school the students will be attending in the 2015-2016 school year.

The new year brought many new things to students enrolled at Bishop Hall Charter School, namely a new school building on North Pinetree Boulevard.

Students arrived at the new school location Tuesday morning to have breakfast for the first time in the school’s new cafeteria. Students then moved to the recently renovated gymnasium next door for a brief assembly program before going out in front of the new building for the ceremonial raising of the first flags to fly over the new school.
