Principal's Message

November 2017

Greetings!

It is that time of year again! Time to usher in the holiday season with time spent reflecting upon all the things we are thankful for. I know here at T. F. Center we have much to be thankful for!

At our Parent-Teacher Conferences this year parents/guardians of over half of our Freshmen Academy students came out to talk to administrators, teachers and staff. At the end of the first quarter, 28 students earned Honor Roll status—that’s one-third of our students with a 3.5 GPA or higher! This is a Freshmen Academy first.

We are definitely thankful for the continued opportunity Governor’s State University has given us to help provide clinical experience for their Social Worker Interns. We are glad to have Latasha Beale, Kim Gray and Lee Merrit.  Thanks to them, we are able facilitate groups, mediations, student observations and create a climate that provides more effective interventions.

Finally, we are thankful for the faculty and staff that have agreed to participate in No Shave November. If you’ve never heard of this campaign or if you would like more information, check out the link here: www.no-shave.org. Many of us, including our students, have experienced first-hand the devastating effects of cancer. During the coming weeks we will have fun watching the Beard Gang at T.F. Center gear up for… “Battle of the Beards.” Whose beard will be the bushiest? The most growth? Staff and students will be able to donate to their favorite beard with all proceeds donated to charity. Tune in next month for the update!

On behalf of everyone here at T.F. Center have a safe and happy start of the holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!It is that time of year again!
