Purple with Purpose Women's History Month Celebration

The TCMS Girls' Conditioning students recently had a fun-filled day with Coach Deborah Anderson with girl empowerment activities in honor of Women's History Month during the month of March. As part of this observance, mothers, grandmothers, teachers, and strong women influences in these students' lives came out to support these students and attend a class where students prepared a special program. 

Girl empowerment activities included:

*Partner Squats with Purple Balloons

*Leg Lifts with Purple Balloons

*Purple Balloon Pop Competition

Each activity had learning concepts about competition and teamwork to apply in real-life situations. Girls' Conditioning students had to work hard throughout the activities to keep their purple balloons inflated. The purple balloon symbolizes 'purpose.'

Students learned that one must be determined, focused, and strategic in protecting your purpose in life. They also learned to "bee your best" on purpose in class to protect their future; "bee positive" and don't deflate their purpose with negative thinking or actions; and to "bee bright, brave, & beautiful for life!"

Olympic Torchbearer Bring Olympic Torch To Visit Eighth-Graders

Students in Mrs. Floyd's eighth-grade MERIT Georgia Studies class recently had the opportunity to see and hold an original 1996 Olympics torch. The torch belongs to Instructional Coach Debbie Lasseter's husband, Steve Lasseter.

Steve Lasseter was nominated and chosen as a community hero, and became one of the torchbearers as it passed through Thomasville on its way to Atlanta in the Summer of 1996. Lasseter was offered the opportunity to purchase the torch he carried. The torch relay through the United States was sponsored by one of the Olympics' largest sponsors, Georgia-based Coca-Cola. The students were wrapping up their unit on modern Georgia, which includes a standard on the impacts of the 1996 Olympics on the state.
