9/30/15: LaGrange High School Athletes Receive Sportsmanship Award

Today, the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) and Diverse Power, one of Georgia’s Electric Membership Corporations, awarded LaGrange High School with the AAAAA 2015 Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award. The award honors schools that demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship during the 2014-2015 school year.

Only 48 GHSA-member high schools received this recognition. LaGrange received it for the 5-A Division and Callaway High School will receive it for the 3-A Division in October.

“Through part of the GHSA and their desire to improve education, sports and sportsmanship, we are glad to accept this award. It’s nice to be affirmed with each team and individual leadership. Who you are in the community speaks volumes and we are glad to be nominated,” said Coach Pauley to his students during the acceptance ceremony.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized Rosemont Elementary as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2015 based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Dr. Cole Pugh joined Rosemont Principal, Natalie Givins, to make the announcement to staff while they celebrated with ice cream sundaes and cake.


Nine schools from Georgia were recognized, with seven of those being elementary schools. A total of 335 public and private schools throughout the country received the 2015 National Blue Ribbon School designation. “This honor recognizes your students’ accomplishments and the hard work and dedication that went into their success,” Duncan said in a video message (hyperlink video message) to the awardees.  

9/28/15: Parents Get the Royal Treatment at Ethel W. Kight Elementary School

Recently, family members of Ethel W. Kight Elementary School (EKES) students received the royal treatment by earning 'Royal Bucks' after a Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) meeting.

The PBIS framework is used in several TCSS schools this year to enhance positive school cultures and to share social expectations while in school and at home. During the meeting, EKES Counselor, Charlotte Flores, shared common vocabulary with families so that the very same goals can be set at school and at home. 

Students earn "Royal Riches" - paper money- for making good choices.  They can then use the money at the PBIS Store.  One mother shared, "My daughter has earned $62 already," while another mother said, "My daughter's money burns a hole in her pocket. Can your daughter teach my daughter to save?"  Attendees in the picture earned "Royal Riches" during the information session and were able to spend them on prizes before they left the school.
