CURE Thomas County Schools help fight childhood cancer

The Thomas County School System decided to "GO GOLD" during the last week of September which was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Faculty, staff and students wore gold or yellow on Friday, September 25, to share awareness and show support for kids and families impacted by childhood cancer. 

Each school in the system also participated in Caps for CURE by paying one dollar to wear a hat on Friday. Thomas County Schools raised a total of $2,178.61. Each school showed their support by donating the following: Hand-In-Hand, $241.23; Garrison-Pilcher, $412.30; Cross Creek, $634.08; TCMS, $351; TCCHS, $500; and Bishop Hall, $40.

Superintendent Dr. Lisa Williams said, "I am very appreciative of the compassion that our students, staff, and parents have demonstrated in their support of Childhood Cancer Awareness and Research as shown through their actions and contributions. Together, we were able to make a difference for such a worthy cause." 

The money raised was donated to CURE Childhood Cancer. Sharon Johnson and Kathy Pipkin visited the school system recently to accept the check on behalf of CURE. 

“‘Caps for CURE’ was started by my family's friend, Sarah Barr, from Locust Grove," said Johnson. "Her idea to encourage students to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer continues today.  Sarah fought Ewing’s sarcoma for seven years and passed away just before her 20th birthday. We appreciate the continuing support of ‘Caps for CURE.’”

Logo The Thomas County School System inaugurates National Defense Cadet Corps program

A recent grant for the Thomas County School System has provided start-up costs for a National Defense Cadet Corps (NDCC) program, a program that will eventually become a full-fledged Army Junior ROTC unit to serve students from both Bishop Hall Charter School and Thomas County Central High School.

This is the inaugural year for the Army NDCC in Thomas County which will operate exactly like a JROTC program. The program is organized as two battalions: the Knight Battalion at Bishop Hall Charter School and the Yellow Jacket Battalion at Thomas County Central High School.  Lieutenant Colonel Kevin “Buzz” Ingram is the Senior Army Instructor and will oversee both programs. Prior to coming to Thomas County Schools, he served as the Senior Army JROTC Instructor at Ware County High School in Waycross, Georgia.

LTC Ingram said, “I am beyond excited to be here and start something special. This program is unique in that it’s not just one program, but two. I am establishing different battalions at Bishop Hall and Thomas County Central, embracing the culture and traditions at each school. Collectively, we are the 59th Cadet Regiment, paying tribute to the US Army Air Corps’ 59th Fighter Group that called Thomas County home in the early to mid-1940s. The legacy of the men and women of the greatest generation will live on in our cadets in the 21st century.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We will soon complete our first month of the 2020-2021 school year. I am so very proud of our students and the way that they have responded to the opening of the school year and the many new routines that we have implemented to help keep them and our staff healthy.

I am also very thankful for our dedicated school system employees who are going beyond the call of duty every day to make sure that all of our children have a safe place to work, learn, and have fun.

I am humbled by the trust that you as parents have placed in us, and I appreciate the confidence that you have shown in us as you have enrolled your child with us this year. We dedicate ourselves to earning that trust each day, and you have my assurance that every decision we make is focused on maintaining a safe and healthy school for your child to attend.

Important Information Regarding the Jackets' Nest Stadium and Football Season

Football season is finally here and we are thrilled that we will soon be experiencing Friday Night Lights at the Jackets’ Nest.  We truly appreciate your continued support and understanding as we work to prepare our protocols and procedures that will help mitigate the risks concerning the spread of COVID-19 and promote a safe environment for our athletes, coaches, students, fans, and visitors in our stadium.  

Our game day safety protocols are in alignment with guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Georgia High School Association (GHSA), Georgia Department of Public Health, and are subject to change based on modifications issued by those entities.  It is vital that we work together to ensure that our game day protocols and safety measures are followed to help keep our Jackets safe and ready to play and our fans in the stands.  As we see improvements in our community COVID-19 data, hopefully, we will be able to open up additional seating as the season progresses.
