Timpson ISD Bear Update 11/3/2016


THS Collegiate Parent Night – This is a reminder of the upcoming Collegiate Parent Night for parents and students.  We would like to give our parents information on the progress of the TISD Collegiate Center and devise a graduation plan specific for their child. It is extremely important for parents to have input and be informed of their student's future plans and dreams. Please make an effort to attend.  Each class will meet on a designated night. The presentation will be approximately 15 minutes and the last 45 minutes will be spent formulating a pathway for each student.  Mrs. Metcalf, Mrs. Sparks, Mr. Richardson, and Mrs. Behrens will be set up after the presentation so that we will be able to meet with each parent and student in attendance.  The schedule is as follows:


 10th Graders-November 7th

5:00-6:00 A-H of the Alphabet

6:00-7:00 I-Z of the Alphabet

11th Graders-November 14th

5:00-6:00 A-H of the Alphabet

6:00-7:00 I-Z of the Alphabet


TVFD Visits TES – The Timpson Volunteer Fire Department personnel recently visited Timpson Elementary School during fire safety week.  Students got to see the tools firemen use and got to climb aboard the fire truck and see inside the fire truck cab.  The firemen even ran the siren for students to here.  The TVFD personnel came dressed in their uniforms and explained to students about the importance of following fire safety rules.  The TES students really enjoyed the visit and learned about fire safety.  TES Principal Bubba Carrington and staff appreciate TVFD for this hands on learning experience!
