Neighborhood Bridges Program underway at TCS

Trussville City Schools has launched the Neighborhood Bridges program. This program is an "Opportunity for Kindness" and it matches student/family needs in our school system with donors. This program functions very much like an Angel Tree. This is all done anonymously.

If you have a need: Let your school counselor know in each school where your children attend. The school counselor collects needs for their school and lists them on the Neighborhood Bridges site.

If you want to help: Go to Once on the page, select Alabama communities at the bottom, scroll down and click Trussville. Enter your email to sign up for the program to become a donor and help a student in need.

How it works: When a need is listed, everyone who has signed up for the program will receive an email with the list of needs. Then you can select to buy any request on the list that you are able to fulfill. Each item can only be selected once. Only new items are accepted.

As soon as possible, drop the item(s) off at the Central Office during school hours or at the Trussville Fire Department on Highway 11 at any time.

Neighborhood Bridges is open to anyone in our community who is looking for an "Opportunity for Kindness". At this time, we are unable to accept monetary donations but we hope to provide that option soon.

Thank you for supporting the students in Trussville City Schools!

Hewitt-Trussville High School Physics Class Experiment...Learning in Action!

After students complete a lab experiment in physics class, they are given a performance based assessment in which they have to apply what they have learned to achieve a given challenge. After learning about constant motion cars, students were challenged to determine the point at which a faster car will pass a slower car (#CarChase) and the point at which two cars will collide (#DuelingBuggies). Learning in action!
