She also teaches writing.  She stresses to her students the importance of being able to express themselves and communicate effectively both in writing and speech.  Mrs. Hooper is a kind and supportive teacher while at the same time having high expectations for her students to succeed.  She strives to ensure her students will master the skills needed to be ready for high school.  Mrs. Hooper is an excellent role model for her students and we truly appreciate all she contributes to Timpson ISD.
 
TES Pre-K News - Today, the Timpson Elementary School Pre-K class made a solution of water and liquid detergent.  We then put some on the tables and had some in bowls at each table.  Each student had a straw.  With the straws, the students made bubbles on the tables.  The students compared the bubbles to each other and made several bubbles in their area to see which one was the biggest.  Students started noticing that when the bubbles popped, you could still see the imprint of the bubbles on their table.  They had a lot of fun.

Teacher Spotlight – Mrs. Tanya Hammett teaches English II, English IV and is the dual credit English monitor at Timpson High School.  This is her first year to teach at THS and she has 21 years teaching experience.  Mrs. Hammett enjoys the respectful, family atmosphere at Timpson ISD.  She says the faculty, staff and students welcomed her here as though she had been a Timpson Bear all along.  She is a junior class sponsor and will be the THS cheerleader sponsor for the 2017-2018 school year.  Mrs. Hammett said she became a teacher because of the influence two of her teachers had on her.  Mrs. Freeman and Mr. Pirtle influenced her to become a teacher not only because of how they taught but also on the impact these two educators had on her life.  She realized that by becoming a teacher not only could she teach them English but she could also help shape her students to be the kind of adults they would become.  Mrs. Hammett says she always keeps in mind what she was like when she was her students’ age and relates to them in a way that helps her build relationships and trust with her students.  Mrs. Hammett is an excellent example of the saying, “Students don’t’ care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”  Mrs. Hammett’s dedication to her students shows how much she cares.  She stresses to her students how important it is to learn to read.  Reading is essential for success in all subjects and is truly a necessary life-long skill. She also said that if a student can read, they will be able to write.  As a child, Mrs. Hammett did not have the opportunity to travel extensively but she said through reading she was able to visit and see places around the world.  She hopes to provide these same opportunities for her students.  Mrs. Hammett has a warm caring personality while at the same time having high standards for her students.  We thank you Mrs. Hammett for all you do for our students.

KJ Byers and Bryson Lockley sign D1, Bumps total to 4


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Carthage, Texas – Panola College men’s basketball players Bryson Lockley
and KJ Byers both signed division one over the weekend. “Both KJ and Bryson
did all that we asked of them this past season. They bought in and had
special years. They deserved to have this moment and all of this success”
Head coach Grant McMillan mentioned.
 
 
Byers signed with Long Beach State, which participates in the Big West
Conference. KJ finished the season averaging 7.6 points per game, recorded
two double-doubles on the year and was second in the conference in blocked
shots. Byers, the Charlotte, North Carolina native, transferred to Panola
from Iowa Western Community College.
 
 
Lockley signed with Kennesaw State, which participates in the Big South
Conference. Bryson averaged 4.6 points and 3.9 rebounds a game this past
season while making 11 starts. He recorded 5 double-figure scoring games
and recorded two double-digit rebounding games. Lockley, the Houston, Texas
native, transferred to Panola after redshirting at Santa Clara last season.
 
 
The two big man join Eric McGill (Southern Illinois) and Tope Arikawe
(North Texas) who will
 
continue their career at division one universities. Panola finished the
season 26-9 ranked 13th in the final media poll. According to head coach
Grant McMillan, there will be more division one signees here in the near
future.

Center Tennis Update


 

 

The Center Tennis team competed in the Region 2 4-A Championship April
18-19 and after two days of rain delays and midnight marathon matches, the
Rider Tennis season has come to an end.
 
 
 
*Boys Singles:*
 
Mauricio Rojas-Solis finished second in our District to Adam Morris
(Henderson).  Adam is going to represent our district and region at the
State tournament by finishing second in our region.  Mauricio had to face
the number three seeded player in the draw (District Champion from Paris,
Tx) and had a straight set loss.  Mauricio is a sophomore and will be one
of the future leaders of the Rider Tennis Team.
 
*Girls Singles:*
Keelan Williams finished 1st in District and played a District Runner up
from Anna, Tx. Keelan won her first round in straight sets and made it to
the Region Quarterfinals before facing the #1 seed in the draw.  Keelan is
a freshmen with a bright future ahead and will also be a future leader of
the program.
 
*Boys Doubles:*
 
Nate Morris / Zach Fausett are the seniors of this years boys program and
were the District Champions going into the tournament.  They drew Kilgore
in the first round, who finished second in their District but were the #2
seed in the bracket.  The boys held their own and had a chance to serve for
the first set but fell short and ended up in a tiebreaker which the Riders
did not come out ahead in.  After dropping the first set, they bounced back
and took the second set (which was the only set Kilgore dropped in the
entire tournament) forcing a third and deciding set which Kilgore outgunned
us in.
 
Abram Morales / Juan Gonzalez finished 2nd in the District and drew the
District Champions from Van.  These boys lost in a hard fought match but
Center struggled to win their serve games when it was needed and gave Van
the opening they needed to close out each set.  Abram is a junior and Juan
is a sophomore.
 
*Girls Doubles:*
 
Whitlee Reed / Megan Dunn had an outstanding tournament with five matches
played and gave their all to compete for a chance to advance to State.  The
Lady Riders fell a little short to a couple of very accomplished teams in
Kaufman and Wills Point, but came home with Third Place Medals and a solid
year.  Congratulations!!! Senior Whitlee Reed and Junior Megan Dunn.
Senior Iliana Rojas and Junior Emma Locke had a tough draw, meeting the
District Champions from Wills Point (same team who finished 2nd place over
Reed / Dunn) in the first round at Regionals.  The girls jumped out to an
early lead in the first set but lost the momentum and Wills Point was able
to take back the lead and win the first set and carry momentum into the
second set.
 
*Mixed Doubles:*
 
Junior Mackenzie Dykes and Sophomore Keaton Watlington came into the
tournament unseeded and was able to pull out a first round victory over
Dallas Hutchins and then had to face the #4 seed from Kaufman.  The mixed
doubles duo played a great first set and was leading to start the second
set when the rain hit.  The delay stalled our momentum and Kaufman
regrouped and took the second set, but Center bounced back to win the third
set and reach the semifinals.  The Rider duo faced a loss in the semifinals
and third place matches but finish fourth.  Congratulations!!!!
 
Sophomores Maddie Russell and Sam McSwain had to play the District
Champions from Pittsburgh in the first round and were able to pull off a
three set victory.  This put the Center duo into the Region Quarterfinals
to face the number 2 seed in the Region.  The Riders put up a fight in each
game but fell short and will have a few more years to improve and advance.
 
 
Overall, the Center tennis team did not have a State qualifier this spring,
but knew they would have a different region to compete with in the new
alignment.  I believe this will give the returning tennis players the
incentive to work that much harder to succeed.
 
 
The Rider Tennis team represented CHS to the best of its ability and look
forward to another season.  Congratulations to our Seniors and we look
forward to hearing of your success in the years to come.

Emberton Announced as 2017 Alumna of the Year


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Panola College Alumni Association is proud to announce the selection of
Dr. Sherilyn Emberton as the 2017 Panola College Alumna of the Year. Dr.
Emberton will be recognized by Dr. Berri O’Neal, Chair of the Panola
College Alumni Association and recipient of the 2016 Alumna of the Year, at
the spring commencement ceremony scheduled for Thursday, May 11, at 5pm in
the Arthur Johnson Gymnasium.
 
Dr. Sherilyn Emberton attended Panola College from 1976 to 1978. During
this time, she was an active member of the Panola College Pipers and the
Cheer Squad.
 
When asked about her most memorable moments at Panola College, Dr. Emberton
replied, “Overwhelmingly, it would have to be the privilege of attending
during the years both the men's baseball team and women's basketball teams
contending for national tourneys.  Being a member of the cheer squad for
both years, and getting to be a part of the campus spirit was so exciting!
Go Ponies!  Go Fillies!”
 
After graduating from Panola College, Emberton went on to earn a Doctor of
Education degree in 1999 from Texas A&M University-Commerce and
undergraduate study at Stephen F. Austin State University where she
received a Bachelor of Science in education degree in 1979. She earned a
Master of Education degree from the same institution in 1981.
 
Dr. Emberton, President of Huntington University, is a native Texan who was
born in Irving, near Dallas. She began her presidency in June 2013 and has
made a significant impact in her first three years, helping to launch HU’s
first doctoral program in occupational therapy, the Haupert Institute for
Agricultural Studies and the Institute for Leadership & Counseling.
 
Prior to accepting the presidency at Huntington, Emberton served as the
provost and vice president for academic affairs at East Texas Baptist
University in Marshall, as well as serving in that same role at Lincoln
Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee.  Emberton began her career in
Christian higher education at LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas,
leading its new teacher education program. In 2005, she was named the
associate vice president for academic affairs for the institution.  She has
also served as the Director of Applied Projects for the Texas State
Technical Institute.
 
Currently, Emberton sits on the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership’s
Governing Board, is part of the Regional Cities Initiative’s Steering
Committee, and recently named to the board for the Northeast Indiana
Chamber of Commerce.  She is the Director of Higher Education for the US
National Conference, United Brethren Church in Christ. In addition, she
chairs the Lenawee Christian Ministries Board headquartered in Adrian,
Michigan; is an executive committee member at-large of the Independent
Colleges of Indiana (ICI) out of Indianapolis; is a board member on the
Regional Chamber of Northeast Indiana, and serves on the Board for the
Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana, Inc.  In January, Dr.
Emberton will join the board of the newly formed AgriNovus, which includes
other executive leaders from the agribusiness community such as Dow
Chemical, Whitshire Hamroc, Beck’s Seeds, Lilly, Inc. and Purdue University.
 
“Dr. Sherilyn Emberton has contributed back to higher education for
decades, including serving in top administrative roles as the first female
in several of those positions. She has made a mark on higher education and
has exemplified excellence throughout her career,” says Dr. Berri O’Neal,
PC Alumni Association Chair. “Emberton personifies the definition of a
Panola College Alumna of the Year.”

Octaxious Evans selected to play in TABC 4-A All-State Game


 

 

 

 
 
 
 
Senior Octaxious Evans was selected by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches to play at the TABC All-Star Game in San Antonio on May 19.
 
"It came out of nowhere to be honest," Evans said. "Mama Harrison texted me and she showed me I was on the roster. It felt good knowing I get to play again."
 
Evans is the first player to play in the TABC All-Star Game from Center High School since Robert Culley in 1977, who was the first high school student in Texas to play in both the basketball and baseball All-Star Games.
 
"This recognizes his abilities and accomplishments," Athletic Director Barry Bowman said. "It also recognizes our athletic department and specifically, our basketball program of Coach Harrison and his staff with the job that they've been able to do with Tae."
 
To be selected for the All-Star Game, a player must be nominated by their coach. After that, the player must also be selected by coaches throughout the State of Texas.
 
"The honor speaks for itself," Bowman said. "This is a group of coaches, who spend their lives in a particular field like basketball, in the State of Texas who have decided that this young man has fit all the criteria to be selected to play in this game."
 
Evans was elected into the 1st team of the 2017 District 16-4A, All-District Boys Basketball Team and the Class 4A Region III Basketball Team. Evans racked up a total of 496 points, 80 assists and 193 rebounds in the 2016-17 basketball season.
 
"I'm proud of Tae," head basketball Coach Hiram Harrison said. "He's a hard worker, so he deserves it."
 
Evans has became a leader and a role model for many athletes and students. He shows success pays off with hard work, and having good character makes a difference. Because of these qualities, Evans signed his letter of intent to play football at Boise State in the fall.
"It's feels good to step up and play a role in other people's lives," Evans said. "It's a lot of pressure sometimes. You can't let nobody see you doing wrong cause then they’re going to think they can do wrong."
 
A banquet will be held to honor the players and coaches on May 18 at 7:00 p.m. at The El Tropicano Hotel in San Antonio. The Boys 4A All-Star Game will begin at 6:00 p.m. at Blossom Athletic Center on May 19. There will be no charge for admission into the game.
"He's going to do well, no doubt about it," Bowman said. "He's going to do well no matter what he chooses to do. He's just that kind of kid."

Teacher Spotlight  - Mrs. Teresa Jourden is the biology, anatomy & physiology teacher at Timpson High School.  She has taught at THS for three years.  Mrs. Jourden is a hands-on teacher encouraging students to conduct experiments, participate in labs and do problem solving to find answers and solutions.  Mrs. Jourden expands her own knowledge of her subjects and instructional methods by attending and presenting at regional and state workshops and conferences.  The favorite part of her job is being around students.  She loves being a part of their education.  She hope that while she is teaching science she also will play a big role in helping students develop high character and a work ethic that will allow them to succeed once they graduate. Her own high moral character and strong work ethic allows her to be an outstanding role model to her students.  This year Mrs. Jourden is helping coach athletics and she enjoys getting to see first-hand how the athletes’ hard work pays off.  She says the Lady Bears work very hard through the summer and school year to be successful and their efforts do not go unnoticed.  She says it is such fun to be around such great young ladies.  Ms. Jourden has served as junior and senior class sponsor, fellowship of Christian athletes sponsor, and has coached the Science UIL Team for 3 years.  She and her family enjoy being part of Timpson ISD and are thankful and blessed to call this home.  We are thankful and blessed to have such a dedicated, hardworking teacher and coach in Mrs. Jourden.  Thank you for all you do.
 
 
Teacher Spotlight – Charlotte Metcalf is the Timpson High School counselor.  This is her ninth year at Timpson High School.  She taught biology for three years and has been counselor for six years.  Watching her students grow into young adults and learning to take responsibility for themselves in academics, athletics and other extra-curricular activities is the favorite part of her job.  She loves to see the students’ personality and self-confidence blossom by the time they graduate.  Mrs. Metcalf has also been instrumental in helping grow the TISD Collegiate Center program by helping students select college classes and helping develop the program so that it fits the specific needs of TISD students. She stresses to students the importance of taking advantage of the opportunity this provides to students to graduate with two years of college credit or a vocational/technical license that will have students job ready.  Mrs. Metcalf is always willing to help others including students and staff.  Her friendly and encouraging personality and her strong work ethic allow her to reach out to students and staff who trust her to help them in many areas.  Mrs. Metcalf in addition to her busy schedule also helps sponsor the Shelby County Junior Chamber of Commerce and the THSA Youth Advisory Council.  Outside of school, Mrs. Metcalf loves to be with her family in Timpson and her parents in San Augustine.  She said her family spends a lot of time outdoors with horses, cattle, flowerbeds and gardening in the spring and summer.  She also loves her church family and playing the piano in church.  Thank you Mrs. Metcalf for being a dedicated counselor and your support to students and staff.
 
 
 
Staff Spotlight – Tina Samford has many job responsibilities at Timpson High School.  She oversees the high school library, is district textbook coordinator, online dual credit monitor, Beta Club and Book Club sponsor.  She also volunteers to chaperone senior class activities.  Mrs. Samford has a personal love for reading and wants to encourage this love for reading in students.  She encourages students to check books out of the library and gets student input on the types of books they enjoy reading so she can include these books in the library selections. She also gives the students the opportunity to discuss what they read with book club meetings and provide book related field trips that have included seeing movies of books they have read.  She is also part of the TISD Collegiate Center team that is encouraging students to take dual credit classes with the goal of earning a two year college associates degree before graduating from high school.  She oversees the online dual credit program monitoring students grades, progress and gets the academic help from teachers as needed.  Mrs. Samford’s oversight and involvement in this program is a big reason our students have been so successful in earning college course credit while in high school.  Mrs. Samford loves her job and considers herself extremely lucky to do what she gets to do.  She enjoys being busy and active.  She says working with students keeps her young!  She went on to say the only downside of her job is saying goodbye to graduates to whom she has become attached.  Although Mrs. Samford has a demanding schedule, she is always available to help others.  For that and so much more, we appreciate all that Mrs. Samford does for our students and staff.

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.

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.

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.*

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

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.

Staff Spotlight -  Ms. Vicki Hightower is the Timpson Elementary School Pre-K educational aide. She works with Ms. Penny Ramsey to provide small group and individual instruction to our youngest students.  Mrs. Hightower is a very creative person and enjoys coming up with hands on activities that students not only enjoy but that also enhance their creativity and problem solving skills.  She also helps to share with parents and community what Pre-K students are learning by taking photos and sending articles through the class parent page and Bear Updates.  We appreciate Mrs. Hightower’s dedication to our youngest students.
 
 
 
Teacher Spotlight – Tracy Rucker teaches social studies at Timpson High School.  Teaching is a second career for Mr. Rucker who had previously worked for the City of Nacogdoches.  Working with students and teaching a subject he has a true interest in and passion for is what made Mr. Rucker choose teaching history as his second career.  He was also very excited to give back to the school system that had given him so much.  He is a 1986 Timpson High School graduate.  He said he loves being back home around friends, family and the THS staff and students.  His father and grandparents helped develop his love of history by teaching it to him and stressing the importance of how understanding what has happened in our past can help us shape a better future for our country and world—the country and world his students will live in and help shape.  He uses technology as part of his instruction not only to let students see important historical moments in our history but also to show current news events and their impact on student’s’ lives.  Mr. Rucker also is involved in extra- curricular activities.  He organized and sponsors the THS Bass Club and is a senior class sponsor. We appreciate Mr. Rucker’s enthusiasm for learning and his dedication to his students.

Shelby County Republican Party donates new flags to CMS


 

Mr. Duvon's class at Center Middle School raises the U. S. and Texas flags
each morning while the rest of the campus recites pledges to both flags.
The students pictured are shown taking the flags down one recent
afternoon.  Mr. Duvon's students are taught proper flag etiquette and
respect for our flags.  CMS' Campus Policeman, Shad Sparks recently
mentioned to Leigh Porterfield that the campus was in need of new flags and
Mrs. Porterfield arranged for a gift of flags from the Shelby County
Republican Party.  Mrs. Porterfield told us she jumped at the chance to
help Center Middle School.  She says, "God bless our kids and long may the
flags wave!"

Timpson ISD Bear Update


 

Academic UIL Qualifiers – Students who qualified for the Regional Academic UIL contest will compete April 7-8 at Panola Junior College.  Congratulations for making it to Regionals and good luck in this competition.
Calculator Team: Jose Mejia, Tyler Morris, Jacob Searcy and Connor Timmons
Current Issues and Events: Blake Johnson
Mathematics: Connor Timmons
Science/Top Score Biology: Corey Branton
Spelling: Ryan Clay Stamps
 
Tomlinson Receives Grant - Timpson High School math teacher Mrs. Suzanne Tomlinson  was recently awarded a grant to attend and present at regional and state math conferences.  The Texas Regional Collaborative is a grant that was conceived over 20 years ago for Texas science and math teachers. The grant is designed to help science and math teacher throughout the state of Texas by allowing them the opportunity to share successful lessons with each other to help with struggling students. Teachers that are awarded the grant will earn over 100 professional credit hours for the year while being compensated for their efforts. Each teacher agrees to mentor another teacher in their discipline for a minimum of 12 hours by sharing lessons that have been presented at TRC workshops, developing new lessons to match the needs of students, and by answering any questions about classroom management.  Teachers are also encouraged to present some of their most successful lessons at Region 7 which is the grant manager for Timpson High School. Math teachers are also encouraged to attend and present at the state math conference, Conference of American Math Teachers (CAMT) during the summer. Science teachers are also encouraged to attend and present at the Conference of American Science Teachers (CAST) during the fall. Both conferences are attended by teachers from Texas and throughout the United States. Data has verified that students who have been taught by a collaborative teacher have higher scores for state test, college entrance exams and are more successful in institutes of higher learning.
 
Teacher Spotlight – Penny Ramsey is the Timpson Elementary School Pre-K teacher.  The part of her job she loves the most is seeing students learn.  She enjoys teaching her students using hands on games and learning because she knows this is how the young students learn best.   Ms. Ramsey is also working with a Pre-K initiative grant to help enhance the quality standards related to curriculum, academic performance and family engagement.  Ms. Ramsey has enjoyed working with Timpson High School Vocational Agriculture teachers Mrs. Powers and Mr. Gaylord who adopted the Pre-K class to plant and care for a garden and how to care for lambs and pigs.  The Pre-K students really enjoy getting to pet these animals.  She is also involved in extra- curricular activities such as the Athletic Booster Club concession stand, coaching 5th grade UIL ready writing and going to livestock shows with her daughter, April.  She also attends First Methodist Church in Timpson.

Pasta for Pennies


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Joaquin Elementary and Joaquin Junior High participated in the Pasta for
Pennies Program.  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society partners with Olive
Garden in the fight for blood cancers.  Leukemia causes more deaths than
any other cancer among children, adolescents and young adults under the age
