FCCLA News - Car crashes kill more young people than any other cause, accounting for nearly half of all teen deaths in America each year. About 2,800 U.S. teens die each year in car crashes; that's the equivalent of a school bus loaded with teenagers crashing once every week for an entire year. Started in 2002, Teens in the Driver Seat is the first peer to peer program for teens that focuses solely on traffic safety and addresses all major risks for this age group. This program is sponsored by the Texas A & M Transportation Institute. Timpson FCCLA and the Family and Community Services Class would like to introduce the 2017-18 Teens in the Driver Seat team. Members are:
 
 
(Row 1): Kayleigh Wolf, Allysha Stephens, Hope Milford, McKenzie Burgay, Karalyn Ramey, Hannah Fabian
 
(Row 2): Julieta DeLeon, Madeline Binning, Sandra Cuevas, Tela Etievant, Kayla Green
 
(Row 3): Katlynn Cox, Karina Meza, Connor Timmons, Tyciuna Earl

Adopt a Classroom


 

Joaquin High School teacher, Kathy Cockrell is participating in the “Adopt a Classroom” project designed to match local teachers with teachers whose classrooms were affected by Hurricane Harvey. She is paired with a 9th grade English classroom at Klein High School near Houston, Texas.
 
At this point their greatest need is for grades 7-12 library books. Joaquin High School will hold a book drive to collect new and gently used books and/or money to purchase new books. We will have a donation bin set up at the JHS Homecoming game on September 29 or donations can be dropped off at the high school office before October 6th.
 
We are encouraging support from the Joaquin community to help our friends at Klein High School. Contact Kathy Cockrell at Joaquin High School for more information.

Panola College to Auction BBQ Pit for Harvey Victims


 

Starting Monday, September 18, Panola College will hold a Facebook auction
for a BBQ pit. The cooker was built by welding students at the Shelby
Regional Training Center along with their instructor, Clint Cassell.  The
pit is 36x23x23” with double slide out racks and a removeable heat shield,
so you can either smoke, or charcoal grill on this pit. The fire box is
23x23x16". It also has a damper in the stack, and a damper in the fire box.
A custom BBQ pit, such as this one, could retail for up to $1,500.
 
The proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Greater Houston
Community Foundation to support the relief effort from Hurricane Harvey.
The Greater Houston Community Foundation is a public charitable foundation
whose Hurricane Harvey Relief fund is focused on immediate and long-term
relief efforts in Harris County and Houston (which may include cities in
Fort Bend and Montgomery County).  The relief efforts will include aid to
victims of flooding and other weather caused by Hurricane Harvey, including
shelter and temporary housing needs, food and supplies, healthcare, and
multiple other needs.
 
“We built this BBQ pit intending to use it as a fundraiser for the welding
department at Panola College, but we wanted to help with the relief effort
in the Houston area and in the surrounding counties and this seemed like a
great opportunity,” stated Clint Cassel, welding instructor at Panola
College.
 
The auction will begin at 8:00 am on Monday, September 18 and will close on
Thursday, September 21 at 9:00 pm. The bidding will start at $350 and
increase by $25 increments. To place a bid, simply visit
www.facebook.com/PanolaCollege and place your bid in the comment section
underneath the auction post. The winner of the auction will be required to
pick up and pay for the cooker by Thursday, September 28.

Fatha Burchette appointed to Panola College Board


 

The Panola College Board of Trustees, meeting on September 6, appointed
Mrs. Fatha Burchette to fill the unexpired term of the late Mrs. Glendell
Chadwick.
 
“Mrs. Burchette will be a great addition to the Board of Trustees at Panola
College,” said William Goolsby, Board President. “Because of her vast
experience as an educator and administrator, she will be very beneficial to
this institution.”
 
Mrs. Burchette graduated from Turner High School in 1970 as a member of the
last graduating class before mandatory integration of public schools in
Panola County. That same year, she began her college career at Panola
Junior College, earning an Associate Degree in 1972. After graduating, she
and the late Roy Burchette were married, and relocated to Iowa. She
attended Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri, graduating in 1974
with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Science.
 
In 1978 she returned to Carthage and began her career with the Carthage
Independent School District, first as a substitute teacher and
para-professional. In 1979, she received her Texas Teacher Certification in
Secondary Social Studies and History from Stephen F. Austin State
University. She started her full-time teaching career as a social studies
teacher at the Baker-Koonce campus, where she remained for 17 years.
 
In 1989, Mrs. Burchette returned to the SFASU campus and obtained a
Master’s Degree in Secondary Education and History, and in 1994, she earned
Mid-Management Certification from SFASU. She was promoted to assistant
principal at Baker-Koonce, a position she held for seven years. In 2003,
she was promoted to principal, a position she held until her retirement in
2010.
 
Throughout her career, Mrs. Burchette has participated in several community
and state organizations, including serving as a member of the Scholarship
Committee on behalf of the Turner High School Class of 1970, the Board of
the Boys and Girls Club, a member of Kiwanis, a member of the Texas
Classroom Teachers Association, Retired Teachers Association, American
Association of Retired Persons, and as a member of the local Emergency
Management Agency Team.
 
The Panola County native is the daughter of the late John D. and Lura
Roberts. She is a member of the Walnut Grove Baptist Church. She has one
daughter, Kiesha, and one grandson, Kason.
 
“I believe life is a cycle, and now it is time for me to return to Panola
College and offer my assistance in a different role,” Mrs. Burchette said.
“I have been blessed by God, and I want to share those blessings with
others. It’s an honor to have been named to the College Board of Trustees.
Indeed, obtaining such a position requires an enormous amount of duties and
responsibilities. I truly appreciate Dr. Powell and the Panola College
Board of Trustees for the confidence they have placed in me. I am more than
willing to support the mission, goals, and vision of Panola College.”

CMS 8th grade to view live production at Chamber Theater


 

We are very excited to share with you that our 8th grade students will be
attending the Chamber Theater Encore production in Marshall, TX on Friday,
October 20, 2017.  We will leave CMS at 8:30 and return at about 1:30.
 
 
This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to see a live production
of stories we will read in class. In a 90-minute show, our students will
see adaptations of 5 classics (“The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Monkey’s Paw,”
“The Necklace,” “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” and “The Celebrated Jumping
Frog of Calaveras County.”) The materials provided by the company are “a
springboard for students to compare and contrast important literary and
dramatic elements, while also encouraging active listening and effective
viewing skills. Post-performance activities bring the experience back to
the classroom to help solidify the learning process.” (ChamberTheatre.com)
 
 
Permission slips will be sent home Monday, Sept. 11. Please send $19.00 for
the ticket and the signed permission slip to your ELAR teacher (Mrs.
Bittick/Mrs. Helton) by September 19. If you are unable to meet this
deadline, please contact us.

Mid Johnson to Speak at TAGHS Meeting


 

Central to Timpson's past, present, and future are Timpson's schools. Timpson ISD Superintendent Dr. Mid Johnson will outline some of the changes which are occurring at TISD, including major ongoing renovation and construction projects, when he speaks to the Timpson Area Genealogy and Heritage Society at 2PM on September 13.
 
A native of Gary, Dr. Johnson is beginning his eighth year as TISD Superintendent. His family has deep roots in the area, having owned property near Gary since the days of the Republic of Texas. Middleton Tate Johnson served in the Regulator-Moderator War, the Congress of the Republic of Texas, the Civil War, and was one of the first Texas Rangers. Dr. Johnson recalls coming to Timpson as a boy with his father, who was a farmer and rancher, to conduct business. 
 
“Timpson ISD is a very special place for me and my family” says Dr. Johnson. “We have seen some great times and some tougher times during my residency here. Our school is full of wonderful students and staff. It is most important that schools be filled with people who really care about kids and their futures. I am blessed to be a part of Timpson and Timpson ISD.”
 
TAGHS meets at 2PM on the third Wednesday of each month in the meeting room of the Timpson Public Library, located on the corner of Austin and Bremond Streets. The public is always welcome.

Jeremy Kelln Presents Budgeting for Financial Success


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The M.P. Baker Library will host speaker Jeremy Kelln, the Panola College
campus representative for Herring Bank on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 in
the Frances B. Ross Ballroom. Mr. Kelln’s presentation will discuss the
importance of budgeting for financial success. In accordance with the
“Money Smart” program designed by the FDIC, Mr. Kelln believes budgeting
and planning for your financial future is one of the key components in
achieving financial freedom.  Within a budget is also a balance sheet to
understand your financial position.  He will briefly discuss financial
positions and how to figure out what your financial position is, why it’s
important to understand this figure, and what steps to take once you know
where you stand.  He will also discuss the reasons why building a
relationship with a financial institution is important, and what things to
look for and avoid when choosing a financial institution.  Most
importantly, he will educate students about credit including how to build
credit, some of the benefits of having good credit, what increases and
decreases credit scores, and how often & where to check credit scores.
Teaching college-aged students to be mindful of their finances and
financial decisions is particularly important to Mr. Kelln but he welcomes
anyone interested in budgeting issues to the presentation. Worksheets for
hands-on learning will be provided.
 
Mr. Kelln earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from West Texas A&M
University. He has 16 years of experience in banking, financial advising,
business development, and exercise & sports nutrition.  He has spent the
last 8 years developing a financial education resource for the future
generations of the world.
 
The lecture is free and open to the public.  Doors will open at 12:00 pm
with the lecture beginning at 12:15pm and lasting approximately 30 minutes.
Lunch will be provided for the first 50 attendees arriving.  So that
adequate seating may be provided, please RSVP.  For additional information
please call 903-693-2052 or email cferguson@panola.edu.

CMS Students ask for community donations to help supply a Houston-area
school following hurricane Harvey.
 
CMS Junior Chamber of Commerce and Junior BETA Club have joined forces to
adopt a school affected by the storm.  Goodson Middle School, with a
population of over 1200, is located in Cypress, Texas.  CMS is planning to
collect donations for the students to help in making the beginning of the
school year a bit easier.

group, Principal Principles, a collaboration of administrators from all
over the U. S. including many schools in the Houston and surrounding areas
most affected by the hurricane.
 
?Goodson Middle School is in need of supplies, including pencils, colored
pencils, notebook paper, drawstring backpacks, earbuds, 1" binders, and
3"x5" note cards.  Every little bit will help.
 
Students will begin collecting donations after Labor Day.  ?
Sixth graders will turn in their donations to Mrs. Sanford, seventh graders
to Mrs. Burns, and eighth graders to Mrs. Andrews.  Community donations can
be dropped off at the CMS front office.
