Elementary Christmas Dreams Fulfilled by CHS Angel Tree


 

Elementary Christmas Dreams Fulfilled by CHS Angel Tree
 
*The Lariat* Editor-In-Chief, Brady Wells
 
 
CHS faculty and students worked together during the first half of December
to make the Christmas dreams of nearly 50 elementary students come true by
participating in the annual “Angel Tree.”
 
Created several years ago by former government teacher Archie Haddox, the
Angel Tree program consists of a coalition of elementary teachers, high
school faculty, and students. Lists of first, second, and third grade
students in need were made and given to Kaylin Burleson, who served as a
liaison to high school teacher sponsors. Those sponsors then delegated
tasks to students, who each chose an anonymous child to buy gifts for.
 
“When [Haddox] left last year he had one specific requirement of me,”
Burleson said. “He said ‘I want you to make sure that you keep the angel
tree going’.”
 
Since its beginning, the Angel Tree has expanded greatly.
 
“In the past it was just Mr. Haddox’s senior class,” Burleson said. “This
year we kind of extended it out.”
 
The expansion of the Angel Tree to the entire high school allowed many more
generous individuals to participate.
 
“We had 48 kids this year just from elementary alone,” Burleson said. “We
would like to add F.L. Moffett.”
 
The children’s requests for Christmas gifts have been very humble.
 
“They ask for clothes. They ask for shoes,” Burleson said. “To me,
Christmas has always been a ‘get something that you don’t normally
necessarily get. “For some of them, that may be clothes.”
 
Natalie Morse served as a coordinator, organizing presents and distributing
lists of anonymous children to teachers and students willing to help.
 
 
“We had all the presents covered, and then we had [students] that brought
extra presents because they wanted to help anyway,” Morse said. “On Tuesday
we got all of the gifts and walked them across the street to Center
Elementary and dropped them off.”
 
Few changes are expected to be implemented in the future.
 
“They were kind of disappointed that they didn’t get to see the kids that
would benefit,” Morse said. “I was really proud of how well they did and
their going above and beyond. I was blessed to be able to work with them.”

Panola men run past Coastal Bend, 91-70


 

Panola men run past Coastal Bend, 91-70
 
 
Beeville, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team defeated Coastal
Bend College here Saturday night, 91-70. With the victory the Ponies raise
their record to 9-4 and 2-1 in Region 14 play. “Other than about a 3 minute
span in the first half we played a solid ball game.” Head Coach Grant
McMillan mentioned. “It was a great way to end our semester and head into
our holiday break.” He added
 
.
 
A seesaw battle to start the game saw Coastal Bend take an 8-7 lead with
just under 14:00 minutes remaining in the first half. Panola closed the
half on a 30-12 run to take a 37-20 halftime lead. The 20 first half points
was Coastal Bend’s lowest output of the season. A faster past second half
saw much of the same as Panola heated up from the three point line to take
the 21 points victory.
 
 
Three different Ponies scored in double figures. KJ Byers came off the
bench and netted 14 points. Bryson Lockley and Eric McGill both tallied 12
points, respectively. Panola shot 10-19 from the three point line and
chased down a season high 59 rebounds.
 
 
Panola will next be in action on Wednesday, January 4th when they take on
ETBU JV. Tip-off is set for 6:00 PM in Arthur Johnson Gymnasium on the
campus of Panola College.

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 Pre-K Newsletter - Attached is the Timpson Elementary School Pre-K newsletter.
 
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.

Texas high schools will be challenged, and encouraged, to complete the online Ford DSFL Academy between December 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:
