The Thomas County School System’s MERIT program is providing daily afternoon writing workshops to prepare MERIT students at Thomas County Middle School (TCMS) for the rigors of Advanced Placement (AP) classes and to support MERIT students at Thomas County Central High School (TCCHS) who are enrolled in AP classes.

Thomas County’s MERIT program spans grades 5 through 12 and includes students from both Thomas County Middle School and Thomas County Central High School. The workshop is part of an initiative to bridge the MERIT program between the two schools.

A federal grant is providing fresh fruits and vegetables to Thomas County students.

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program that provides all children in participating schools with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options. The FFVP also encourages schools to develop partnerships at the state and local levels for support in implementing and operating the program.
