Timpson ISD Bear Update 12/2/2016

Timpson Collegiate Center News – Staff from Timpson ISD recently met with Cobb-Vantress hatchery manager Tracy Hooper and human resources employment manager Terri Strahan to learn about their employment needs.  One of the goals of the TISD Collegiate Center is to provide students with the opportunity to receive training, certification, licenses and associates degrees that would prepare them to be hired locally.  Mr. Hooper and Mrs. Strahan also stressed the importance of educating students how to fill out job applications properly, interview skills and appropriate dress for interviews.  Mrs. Strahan plans to meet with students next semester to provide training that will prepare them for the interview process.  The Collegiate Center staff will hold a town meeting January 12 at 5:30 p.m. in the THS auditorium.  All business owners, community members and parents are invited to attend to learn more about the Collegiate Center and its many benefits to Timpson ISD students and the community.

TES News Six 5th grade Timpson Elementary School students were honored with a pizza party for lunch on Thursday, November 17th. These students were the only students who scored in top quintiles on their benchmarks. The top two quintiles are equivalents to making an A or a B on the test. We are very proud of these students and hope to honor more of our students in the future. We are always looking for ways to encourage the students and reward them when they put forth their best efforts. Congratulations to Kallie Solomon, Brette Kaite Behrens, Kooper Dawson, Quinn Timmons, Cameron Bennett, and Mackenzie Smith.

Dear Timpson FFA Members and Parents

With the coming Christmas break … have we got a deal for you!  If you are looking for a great opportunity for your students and a chance to win weekly prizes – valuing $200 each week – then have your students participate in the Ford Driving Skills for Lifeonline driving academy. Texas high schools will be challenged, and encouraged, to complete the online Ford DSFL Academy betweenDecember 5 – 23, 2016.

It is a simple online course which encourages safer student drivers.  After completing the course, students will receive a “certificate of completion.” Scan or email the completed certificate to be entered for a weekly prize. Each week we will give away a gift certificate – just in time for Christmas – valuing $200! From the students who complete the course, we will draw a random winner on:

  • Monday, December 12, 2016
  • Friday, December 19, 2016
