12/10/19: THS Student Wins Music Composition Competition Elevator Music

Jonathan Murphy, Troup High School senior, is passionate about music and composition. In fact, he plans to major in music education, and possibly composition, when he goes to college. He got a little taste of what success looks like when he was asked to participate in a music composition competition earlier this year. 


He won.


As part of the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) composition competition, students from all across the state submit their musical masterpieces to be judged by professors and music educators. The pieces have to be ten minutes and written for up to eight voices or instruments. Jonathon’s winning piece “Elevator Music” was one of 14 pieces chosen. 

12/06/19: TCSS Schools Named to Distinguished and Reward Schools Listing

Recently, the Georgia Department of Education released its list of 2019-2020 Distinguished and Reward Schools. Three Troup County School System (TCSS) elementary schools made the list:


  • Long Cane Elementary – Distinguished School
  • Franklin Forest Elementary – Reward School
  • Rosemont Elementary – Reward School


“It is an honor to see our schools recognized for making progress and great improvements on this year’s GMAS. It shows we are on our way,” said Dr. Brian Shumate, TCSS Superintendent.   


To receive a distinguished school designation means that a school is one of the highest-performing Title I schools. They are among the top five percent of Title I Schoolwide schools and Title I Targeted Assistance schools in Georgia.


G-Masters Racing is excited about its upcoming Santa Sprints Race this weekend at Long Cane Middle School. Students have been working on updating the race cars. Recently, Santa dropped by to check on the team's progress.gmasters

LHS Advanced Graphic Design Project

At the beginning of the year, Advanced Graphic Design students were presented with a yearlong project. The project involved them gathering information, writing articles, taking photos, and laying out the information in a newsletter template that we created. The students were divided into groups and assigned a CTAE teacher/pathway. We had a friendly competition to develop the masthead for our monthly newsletter.

We are pleased to share with you that our first newsletter which introduces each of the career pathways is attached below. The students have worked hard and we are extremely proud of them and the product they have produced.
