The Thomasville High School Homecoming parade is scheduled to take place on Thursday evening, September 22 at 6:00 PM. In an effort to coordinate a successful event that will bring the city together, we are asking for every school, athletic team, and club/organization to participate by creating a float or by walking in the parade. Additionally, sponsors and other community stakeholders are invited to enter the parade and showcase their support for the Thomasville City School System. If you are interested being a part of our homecoming parade, please email Mrs. Janet Cable (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following information:
Name of individual responsible for organizing your float/group
Name of your club/organization
Contact number and email address
Details of your mode of conveyance (vehicles, trailer, walking as a group, etc.)
Further details with regard to times, locations, and the parade order will be sent out once all submissions have been gathered.
All parade entries need to be submitted to Mrs. Cable via email by September 16, 2016.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Thomasville High School
Did you know that children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s just 18 days or 2 to 3 days a month. And that can add up before you know it. This September Thomasville City Schools is celebrating Attendance Awareness Month with a renewed push to get all kids to school—on time, every day. Research shows us that absences add up. That’s as true for kindergartners as it is for 12th graders. It’s as true for excused absences as it is for skipping school. We know there will be days when your child will miss school, especially when they’re sick. But we know that nationwide, as many as 7.5 million students miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s 135 million days of missed school – and missed opportunities. And research shows us it also marks the point when students start to fall behind academically because they have missed too many days.
So this September, for Attendance Awareness Month, let’s work together as a community – school and business leaders, parents, students, teachers, doctors, neighbors – to get all kids to school – on time, every day.
