Welcome to Tri-County Jr./Sr. High School
Back in the Groove at TCHS
The second semester has gotten off to a great start for both students and staff. The mild winter conditions have allowed everyone to settle back into a regular routine, which benefits young learners. As I walk through our classrooms, I continue to be amazed by the different ways that staff members are challenging our students. The instruction that I observe includes hands-on learning activities, small group work and tons of student collaboration. All of these practices that are happening help to keep students engaged and focused on learning. Thanks to social media, we have been able to post images of activities that are happening in our classrooms, so please check our corporation’s Facebook site to stay informed.
Outside of the classrooms, many of our students continue to succeed and represent our school in a very positive way. Overall, we have over 40% of students that are involved in at least one extracurricular activity during the winter season. Being part of a team or organization helps students to grow in different ways and enhances their learning experience. A few of the winter highlights both in and out of our classrooms include:
- Qualifying 30 BPA members for the state competition in March
- Sending 4 girls to the state wrestling tournament
- Having 5 students earn their drone certification
- FFA teams advancing to national competitions
- Several student-athletes being recognized for their sportsmanship
- Having 6 students apply to be inaugural members of the White County Youth Philanthropy Council
As I have mentioned in the past, these achievements would not be possible without the hard work and dedication to our students by coaches and advisers. Our community is fortunate to have these individuals working with our students and representing our school.
As we continue to progress through our third quarter of the school year, I assure everyone that our staff will continue to find news and exciting ways to educate our students, while also tending to the social and emotional needs that many are facing. Keeping everyone safe in our building is our first priority.
Our students and staff continue to thank our community for their continued support for learning. Let’s continue to be kind and take care of each other!
