Honoring Black History
Schools and classrooms throughout Trussville City Schools find unique ways throughout the year to study and celebrate African American History - particularly during the month of February, which is designated in the United States as Black History Month.
In this week's In the Loop, we take a look at Magnolia Elementary School's magnificent art display showcased in this video.

Career and Technical Education Month
February is Alabama Career and Technical Education Month. Around the state, schools will be highlighting and celebrating the value of preparing students for their future careers.
More than 173,000 students statewide in grades 9-12 are enrolled in Alabama CTE classes and programs. Within the past five years, Alabama has seen a 120% growth in workplace credentials earned, with 82% of students in Alabama currently enrolled in at least one CTE class. If you get social with hashtags, use #AlabamaCTE to celebrate this month!

ALERT: Vehicles Passing School Buses
Parents/Employees: Please share with your neighbors and friends who might not see our posts. This is a REMINDER about vehicles running past a flashing red stop sign on the side of school buses - buses that may be loading or unloading children. When this occurs, the Trussville Police Department is notified and a ticket is mailed to the vehicle’s owner. Please be aware that when a bus begins flashing yellow and then flashes red, there are either students on the ground waiting to load or will soon be on the ground unloading. Saving a few minutes by not stopping is simply not worth the risk of hurting a child. Please stop for our students!

A new playground basketball goal is in place at Cahaba thanks to a collective dream by several fourth-grade girls. The girls petitioned principal Mrs. Joy Tyner to have various fundraisers and sent several different diagrams depicting their dream.
"The girls were diligent and stayed in touch with me through short conversations in the hall and by sending me emails through Schoology," Tyner said.
The project came to life last week via collaboration among the fourth-grade girls, the PTO, school administrators, and several Cahaba dads. See the full post on the CES school website.
