Time to Apply for MERIT! MERIT

It is that exciting time of year when we start looking forward to a new group of MERIT students at Thomas County Middle School. The MERIT program of study is designed for gifted and high-achieving middle and high school students who desire a challenging academic environment to prepare for competitive admission and scholarship opportunities at the post-secondary level. The MERIT program stresses academic excellence coupled with competition, athletics, fine arts, and community service.

Interested parties should do the following:

If you are a Cross Creek Elementary or Thomas County Middle School parent, please print out the application from the TCMS MERIT webpage, and return the completed document to your child's homeroom teacher.

If your child attends school in another system, please visit the TCMS MERIT webpage, print out the application, and email the completed form to Dana Studdard, TCMS MERIT Coordinator, at dstuddard@tcjackets.net

All MERIT applications are due by April 26, 2021.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

At its February meeting, the Thomas County Board of Education endorsed a series of proposals recommended by the curriculum department to support students and teachers through the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year.

The “Finish Strong” plan calls for the return of more students to in-person learning and aims to reduce the number of teachers who have to simultaneously teach both in-person and on-line classes. To provide time for teachers, counselors, and administrators to plan for these adjustments, three teacher work days have been added to the school calendar.
