Swim Team Shoe Drive TCMS/TCCHS Shoe Drive

Would you ever think that your old shoes could help the TCCHS and TCMS swim teams? Well, they can, and here’s how: our team is participating in a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell; all we need is your support and your old shoes. We are looking for community members to help support us by agreeing to collect gently worn and/or new shoes in the next 4 weeks!

Here’s how you do it:
Start in your family’s closets and gather pairs of shoes that you’ve outgrown, are out of style, or are out of season. If you have 25 pairs, great! If not, ask your neighbors and/or co-workers to help donate, as well. If you can’t collect 25, then try for 15, 10, or 5.

Remember, every pair that you collect helps support our program as well as individuals in developing nations like Ghana, Haiti, and Cambodia.

Drop off the shoes at TCCHS or TCMS from November 28, 2022 - January 31, 2023. Contact Coach Lanatta at alanatta@tcjackets.net for more information.

Are these Chips Too Delicious?

"Are These Chips Too Delicious?" Students in Mrs. LaToya Crawford-Walker's Sixth Grade ELA Class recently read a StoryWorks article that told the truth about flavored snacks. The article provided facts and opinions about new flavors that are on the shelves in stores.

Students were surprised about the health risks that the new flavors present. In addition to reading the article, students designed their own chip bags and flavors. They also engaged in a chip taste-testing experiment. "Do You Know the Flavor?"

Zulu Field Trip to Plant Farley

Students in Mr. Woodfin's eighth-grade MERIT science classes at TCMS recently visited Plant Farley, a nuclear power plant that is part of Southern Energy, located in Columbia, Alabama.

The field trip was part of a unit of study on energy transformations and transfers in a system. Students learned about the way the power plant takes nuclear energy and converts it into electricity. This unit also includes discussion of nuclear fission, radiation, and the ongoing debate about nuclear energy in the US.

After a presentation by Energy Education Center staff, students completed a scavenger hunt while touring the exhibits on display. Scavenger hunt winners were Kimber Lane and Damon Silvia.

As a part of the program, students signed contracts to agree to meet attendance and behavior requirements, maintain a certain grade point average, participate in REACH Georgia-related activities, and meet weekly with a mentor. Their parents or guardians also signed contracts to support their student through their education.
