Printing the Past at SFA


 

 

Dr. Robert Z. Selden Jr., research associate with SFA's Center for Regional Heritage Research, received an $11,000 grant from the United States Forest Service to fund, in part, the generation of 3-D models for selected lithic artifacts recovered from USFS properties in Texas.
 
The models will be used in a geometric morphometric analysis designed to test a number of assumptions related to lithic technological organization, followed by phenotypic trajectory analyses that will be employed to posit an improved characterization of local lithic reduction sequences.
 
Work on this grant will begin in May. Upon completion of the project, all 3-D models will be uploaded to ScholarWorks in a format where they can be manipulated and viewed in virtual reality.

Teacher Spotlight – Mrs. Leisa Chadwick is the Timpson Elementary School fifth grade language arts/reading teacher.  She has taught 24 years with seven of those years in Timpson which is her alma mater.  Teaching has always been a passion for Mrs. Chadwick.  You can see the passion she has for teaching and her students by the way she greets students each day, the time she spends ensuring each student is learning, the skills needed to be successful and ready to go on to middle school and her care for not only what they learn but for the whole child.  Mrs. Chadwick says she loves to be able to open the windows to her students minds by sharing many different types of genres and letting them truly enjoy learning.  Her goal has been to build relationships with these students and prepare them for life.  Mrs. Chadwick has been involved in m any extra-curricular activities such as UIL, Valentine dances, and has served on the site based team for TES. Mrs. Chadwick said, “I am saddened but yet at the same time rejoicing at being able to retire this year.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my career as a teacher.  I have learned so much from my colleagues and students.”  She wishes to express her thanks to all the parents and kids who have made her career rewarding.  In turn Mrs. Chadwick has greatly rewarded the students who were fortunate to have her as their teacher and the staff who has had the privilege to work with such an outstanding teacher.  Thank you Mrs. Chadwick for your dedication and service to the teaching profession and to Timpson Elementary School.
 
 
 
Teacher Spotlight – Mrs. Tammy Penhallegon is the fourth grade English Language Arts teacher at Timpson Elementary School.  She has taught 18 years and this is her first year teaching in Timpson.  Her job is to teach students the writing process and to learn to write for a variety of purposes and audiences.  These are writing skills students can use both in school and in their future careers.  She sets an example to her students by writing herself when the students are writing.  She said that sharing with students allows them to develop their own ideas and take ownership in accomplishing a piece of writing of which they are proud.  She stresses to her students how important writing is.  Mrs. Penhallegon said that writing is the most challenging skill to teach, but that it is very rewarding.  What she likes best about her job is that young people are so funny.  She enjoys interacting with young minds and hearing their thoughts each day. She loves seeing the smiles on their faces and enjoys all the hugs.  She loves being a positive role model in their lives and feels good when the kids feel successful and accomplished. In the past she has been a part of many activities such as Harvest festivals, parades, football games, field days and dances.  She looks forward to helping with future events at Timpson ISD.  Mrs. Penhallegon said she enjoys working for Timpson ISD.  Having such a wonderful staff and community that makes her feel welcomed is one of the greatest pleasures of being back in her hometown.  Thank you Mrs. Penhallegon for the skill and caring you’ve brought to Timpson Elementary School.
 
 
 
Teacher Spotlight -  Mrs. Melanie Sanford is the Timpson Elementary School fourth grade math teacher.  She has taught in Timpson for 10 years.  There are many facets of teaching Mrs. Sanford enjoys.  She loves the age of the children she teachers and the subject. She enjoys presenting math in many different ways in order to be able to reach her students and help them master the learning objectives.  Mrs. Sanford said, “Students come to me on so many different levels and my main goal is for each student to make progress.”  Her focus is on individual student growth.  She also has a strong desire to help her students become confident in themselves and in their ability to learn. The state assessment (STAAR) results each year reflect the positive influence Mrs. Sanford has on her students.  Math is often challenging for students but Mrs. Sanford delivers her instruction in a way that allows each student to be successful.  She has high expectations for her students in academics and behavior and builds their confidence and skills to be able to reach those expectations.  Thank you Mrs. Sanford for the love and support and expectations for success that you have for all students.

Teacher Spotlight – Mr. Don Calhoon is the Timpson High School world geography, government and economics teacher.  He has taught for three years in Timpson.  He previously taught for 16 years.  He also served our country in the Marines.  Mr. Calhoon retired but his love for teaching did not retire so he returned to the profession he loved when THS Principal Ron Lindgren offered him a job.  He enjoys teaching geography because of his opportunity to travel and see many places while he served in the military.  He likes teaching economics because he considers it a life skill all students will need throughout their lives.  Government has always been interesting to Mr. Calhoon and he wants his students to have a real understanding of it because they will be the future of our country’s government.  He also wants to teach them how to be informed voters.  He has stayed current on the use of technology as an instructional tool and uses it often in his classroom to educate students on geography b showing them places and maps.  He is also able to use technology for student research which helps them be knowledgeable about current events.  He understands that today’s students use technology and by finding ways to use it in the classroom increases their interests in the subject and their learning.  What Mr. Calhoon likes best about his job is working with the Timpson ISD staff and faculty.  He says it feels like family and that we all love our students as if they are our own children.  Mr. Calhoon understands that parents want the teachers to treat their children as teachers would want their own treated.  That is exactly what Mr. Calhoon does by providing his students with the instruction needed to learn the subject matter and the support and encouragement they need to be successful learners.  Mr. Calhoon is a junior class sponsor and coaches the UIL social studies team.  He lives in Nacogdoches and drives 30 minutes to work but says it doesn’t seem that long because he enjoys working at THS.  Thank you Mr. Calhoon for all that you do for our students.

Center FFA Horse Judging


 

 
Horse judging is an FFA contest where students will take the judges seat
and judge horses in both performance (riding classes) and halter classes
(looking at skeletal structure of the horse).  They will typically judge 4
classes of performance and 4 classes of halter and then answer questions
over two classes.  This is a very competitive event and takes real
dedication for students to learn how to judge and become successful.
 
Our students have worked hard and practiced to be able to compete.
 
Center FFA competed at the Area Contest at Sam Houston State University
yesterday.  It was a competitive contest with over 150 students competing
and 44 teams from across our area.  Our young team of students came away
12th in our district.

Teacher Spotlight – Mrs. Cindy Sessions is a Timpson High School science teacher.  She teaches chemistry, IPC and physics.  She also serves as the campus tech support person and drives a route bus.  The favorite parts of her job are the “Ah-Ha” moments when a student struggling with a concept understands it.  She uses many different instructional techniques to ensure her students understand and master learning objectives.  She encourages the students to employ the scientific method to find the answers.  She also uses and hands on activities to help students figure out the answers themselves.  She helps with the UIL One Act Play and has sponsored the junior and senior classes.  She is also actively involved in professional development and training.  She has presented two times at the Conference for American Science Teachers (CAST), once (last summer) at the RC State Conference which only the best of the best get chosen to present, several times at Region 7 and she has applied to present at the TRC State conference this summer but will not get a confirmation until mid-May.  She has received the TRC Grant 9 out of the last 10 years receiving over 1000 professional development hours.  The TRC Grant pays for the conferences, plus a stipend for the year for the purchase of supplies for the science labs.  Also through the TRC she met the person that was over MIPEP (Mitchell Institute physics grant) who sent her an application which she was awarded the grant that paid for her to stay at the Mitchell Ranch for two weeks.  During this time a different Texas A&M professor from the Physics Department came to the ranch to help high school physics teachers with various high school TEKS and advised them what their expectations were for future college students.  This opened the door for her to take the physics and chemistry students to A&M annually for a tour of the science facilities and a “physics show”.  We appreciate all Mrs. Sessions does for our students.

Center Jr. FFA Program


 

It is time to begin planning to raise chickens for the 2017 Shelby County
Poultry Festival! This opportunity is open to ANY CISD student in at least
the 3rd Grade AND at least 8 years of age (must meet both requirements)!
 
*THAT'S RIGHT!!!*
 
Center FFA has a Jr. FFA Program that is very similar to the FFA Chapter
offered at the High School level. We want all Center ISD students to have
the opportunity to participate with the largest youth organization in the
world!!
 
*Here's some info on Center FFA/Center Jr. FFA:*
 
   - Students must be in at least the 3rd grade AND at least 8 years of age
   at CISD
   - Students can show at the Poultry Festival (first weekend of October
   normally) AND the Shelby County Livestock Show (first weekend of March
   normally)
   - They can show the following animals:
   -        Chickens- Poultry Festival
   -        Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Pigs, and Rabbits- Shelby County
   Livestock Show
   - Students commit to the time and expenses of the project and in return
   have the possibility to make THOUSANDS of dollars after showing and
   "selling" their projects at each auction
   - *Please feel free to share the this opportunity with any family
   attending CISD!*
 
We will have an informational meeting on Wednesday May 10th at 5:30 PM in
the Ag Shop of the High School. This will allow for new-comers to ask
questions and meet others that have done animal projects in the past.
During the entire "growing" of all animals, the FFA Advisors will be
available to assist and answer questions!
 
*CHICKENS ARE ONLY A 6-WEEK PROJECT!!*
 
If a student is interested in showing animals at the Livestock Show- there
will be information sent out about that in Early September.
 
*IMPORTANT DATES FOR 2017 POULTRY FESTIVAL:*
 
   - *May 10th 5:30pm*- Poultry Project Meeting- HS Ag Shop
   - *May 17th*- $$ Due for purchase of chickens for Poultry Festival to
   Mr. Harvey
   - *May 17th*- $$ Due for purchase of Poultry Festival T-Shirts to Mrs.
   Shadix
   - *Early August*- pens must be ready for chickens
   - *August (mid-end)- *Chickens will arrive- all students will need to
   pick up their chickens from the designated location- probably the Joaquin
   HS Ag Shop
   - *First Saturday of October (estimate)- *Poultry Festival Show and Sale
 
 
*SHOWING ANIMAL PROJECTS TAKES TIME COMMITTMENT, FINANCIAL COMMITMENT, AND
IS A FAMILY EFFORT. With all of that being said- students gain TONS of
real-world experiences, learn responsibility, hard work, and dedication
from participating with the Center FFA/Jr.*
*THE REWARDS FAR OUTWEIGH THE COMMITTMENT AND STUDENTS HAVE THE POSSIBILITY
TO GET A SUBSTANTIAL FINANICAL REWARD IF SUCCESSFUL.*

CHS Forestry: Area Qualifiers


 

 

 

Forestry is an FFA contest consisting of 13 parts in which students
identify all native hardwoods and pines in East Texas, calculate the volume
of trees, and assess land to manage pine growth for wildlife. Students are
responsible for memorizing charts, leaf identification, and growth patterns
of pine and hardwood trees. They are also expected to properly use a
compass to find the coordinates of their location while in the woods.
 
Theses students have studied, practiced, and fought the elements to improve
their skills and become successful.
 
On April 5, they competed against FIVE Soil and Water Conservation
Districts, 28 teams, and 112 students at our Annual District Forestry
Contest.
 
RESULTS:
Center FFA Placed 2nd overall team
Nate Morris placed 2nd overall individual and Konner Windham placed 3rd
overall individual.

Timpson ISD Bear Update


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Staff Spotlight – Mrs. Teresa Osby is the Timpson Elementary School library aide.  She has worked at Timpson ISD for 18 years.  The favorite part of her job is that she enjoys getting to work with all the students at Timpson Elementary.  She looks forward to reading stories to them and helping them learn to read words and teach the meaning of words they do not know.  She hopes this will help them to develop a lifelong love for reading.  She also recognizes that good reading skills are necessary to be able to learn all subjects and she wants to help students be strong readers.  She keeps the library neat, attractive and decorated with the books easy to find and check out.  She wants the library to be a place students enjoy visiting.  She gives students opportunities throughout the week to check out books and provide them with related reading activities.  Director of Academic Services, Stephanie Behrens, also visits the library to provide lessons from the AVID program that encourages students to learn study skills and to think about what kind of careers/jobs they would like to do in the future.  Thank you Mrs. Osby for the outstanding job you do for our students.

Shelbyville Project Graduation


 

Shelbyville High School will be holding Project Graduation this year on May 19, 2017.  Project Graduation is a drug and alcohol free event that lasts all night.  It provides a safe alternative for graduates who might otherwise be partying.  It keeps graduates off the roads, prevents them from becoming an accident statistic, and gives their parents ease knowing their son/daughter is safely celebrating.
 
Project Graduation originated in Maine in response to the deaths of twelve teenagers in related highway crashes.  The idea of Project Graduation has spread across the nation during graduation and prom night, since these are the two deadliest nights for teenagers.  Project Graduation has saved lives in many communities and schools across the state of Texas.  The success of Project Graduation is in direct relation to the commitment of parents, school administration and staff, and community members and businesses.  These volunteers donate their time and money to provide an exciting and memorable evening of fun and fellowship for the graduates with their classmates for the very last time.  To make this event successful, we need donations from businesses and individuals like you in our area.
 
Any contributions you wish to make toward prizes or food will be greatly appreciated.  If you choose to make a monetary donation, please mail directly to the address below:
 
Shelbyville High School
Project Graduation—Cole Harrison
P.O. Box 325
Shelbyville, TX  75973 
 
We will recognize all businesses and individuals that contribute to this event in area publications.  If you have any questions, please call me at (936) 598-7323 or Debbie Gilchrist at (936) 598-2641.  We would appreciate donations by Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
 
Thank you for your support of the students of Shelbyville High School.  We appreciate our community and Shelby County for always providing!
