TCSS Schools Take STEM Learning Around the Race Track

This time last year, Payde Akins was in elementary school and the Long Cane Middle School Cougar Racing team was presenting to the Troup County School System (TCSS) Board of Education about the Greenpower class offered at the school.

Now, one year later, Payde Akins, 6th grade student at Long Cane Middle School (LCMS), knew she was driving for a purpose but didn’t know she was in the lead as she raced around the Diverse Power Grand Prix track at LaGrange College. When she came to a halt and the #999 Cougar Strong Racing team maneuvered the car under the tent, they finally gave her the news – she helped the team win first place.

Middle School Students Use Technology to Help Learn Finance

Some Gardner Newman Middle School students in Mrs. Brown’s class worked on personal finance and film principles through an online game offered by Georgia Public Broadcasting. For the assignment, they created a film within a given budget. They had to select location, directors, and actors in the confines of the budget. If students wanted or needed more income for the project, they had to answer bonus questions related to income, savings, and credit. Here, Michael Yarbrough works on his project.

Sheriff Woodruff Reads to Callaway Elementary Students

Read Across America week brought guests and book giveaways into many of our elementary schools. Several community leaders stopped through to read to students and share the importance of literacy. At Callaway Elementary, Troup County Sheriff James Woodruff stopped by to discuss his job responsibilities before reading Hooray for Police Officers! to Mrs. Christy Washington's 4th grade class.
