Statewide Teacher Recruitment Campaign Features TCS Educator
Thank Alabama Teachers Week continued through late November and featured Trussville City Schools' own Mrs. Penny Moore, a 1st Grade teacher at Paine Elementary School. The Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) posted unique tributes to K-12 teachers across the state via its social media channels and website. The ALSDE’s appreciation video for Mrs. Moore featured her son - Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Malachi Moore. See the full video here.
Honoring History, Honoring Champions
The ideas were there. Maybe a list. Perhaps plaques. But then, standing in Bryant Bank Arena at Hewitt-Trussville High School, Trussville City Schools Athletics Director Lance Walker counted the wall columns that run from the home bleachers to the visiting side. There were 17. Fittingly, Walker, in his quest to honor all past Hewitt-Trussville state champions, discovered the school has 17 state titles (add one more as of this week: Girls Flag Football!). The idea quickly became a focused project: honor each state championship-winning team’s photo to a column. See more from the Cahaba Sun.
Senior Student Noted for Workmanship
Paine, Magnolia, Cahaba Partner on Food Drive
Magnolia Elementary School, along with Paine Elementary and Cahaba Elementary, recently partnered with Miss Trussville, Isabella Weyerman, during the We are Family Food Drive. Through this drive (which took place Nov. 1-5) students collected thousands of non-perishable food items, which will be donated to the Trussville Ecumenical Assistive Ministry (TEAM), a local non-profit organization that provides food and assistance to local families in need. In the words of a Magnolia employee whose children donated bags full of canned goods, “We are very blessed to be able to give back!”
