TRMS 8th Grade Parents Please Read

*8th Grade Parents*

Please read this in its entirety.

Due to the closure of school for the remainder of the year, the 8th Grade Parent Night and Registration was cancelled.  It is still required for all rising freshmen to "meet" and discuss graduation requirements and selection of the courses.  

There is a 47 minute video that needs to be watched by all 8th grade parents and students.  That video can be found by going to the link below.  This link must be downloaded to be viewed.  Go here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ckZLXQ6naJRlNwiDBAja_yTr2YF4pOe0/view

Upon completion of the video, there is a link to a Google Form for students to use to complete their course requirement.  This link is in the student's Google Classroom (Class of 2024) which all 8th graders received an invitation to last week.  Please have your student check their email and join that Google Classroom.  Once they join, they will see the announcement with the link to complete the Google Form to select their classes.

All documents for review including: video link, instructions, and the Program of Studies Guide that gives course descriptions can be found tomorrow, April 22nd, at phs.trentonssd.org and located on the homepage.  

If the student has met requirements to be in honors or AP courses, he/she have been sent an email tonight.  Please check with your child to see if he/she received an email.

The deadline for 8th graders to submit their course request is next Tuesday, April 28th.  I will enter the course requests in the order in which they are received.  The earlier a student selects courses, the better chance of getting the electives they request.

If you have questions after you watch the video and review documents provided, please email Ms. Sunni at Sunni.Cooksey@trentonssd.org


 

TRMS Cheer

TRMS Cheer Announcement

Parents and students,

              As you know, COVID-19 deeply affected the end of our school year and also pushed back the cheerleading tryout dates. We are going to try something new this year along with many other schools, a virtual tryout. I am going to be sending out two videos of a cheer and a dance to all upcoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who want to try out. Each student will then record themselves performing the two tasks and email them to me to be judged. 

In order to be considered, I need students trying out to email your cell number and an email address to me or Mrs. Holly Pillow no later than Tuesday, April 28th (do this even if you turned in a form before school let out).  I will then send out the video links to those students. All tryout videos will be due by Tuesday, May 5th. If you have no way to video, please let me know and we can work something out. I have also added some reminders from the tryout form below. 

Cheerleading is very rewarding, but a time consuming sport that requires dedication just as any other sport does.  Grades come first.  Cheerleading candidates must have at least an overall C average in all subjects.  Progress Reports will be checked prior to tryouts.  Also, teachers will be given an evaluation form to complete on each cheer candidate and these scores will be added in with the judges’ scores at tryouts.  

              If your daughter makes the team, it becomes her duty and responsibility to attend camp, practices, and games while maintaining good grades.  Absences not only impact the cheerleader that missed, but also hurt the entire team. Cheerleaders are also expected to represent themselves and our school well at all times and should not miss school often.  These are only a few rules from the Cheerleading Constitution.  When everything has cleared up, we will have a parent meeting to explain all the rules. 

              Cheerleading is expensive.  We will have fundraisers to hold your cost down.  However, each girl will be required to pay about $500.00 for, but not limited to, camp, uniform, camp clothing, shoes, and other accessories.  These are items that the girls will keep at the end of the season.  If your daughter plays soccer or softball they will only cheer for basketball, but are required to participate in camp and all fundraisers. EACH GIRL IS REQUIRED TO DO HER PART ON THE FUNDRAISERS! 

I appreciate you all working with me to get cheer tryouts done during this time. Please email me if you have any questions.

Important Announcement – School Closure

This afternoon, Governor Bill Lee recommended the closure of all schools for the remainder of this school year. Trenton Special School District will comply with the recommendation and will not return to school this school year. Tim Haney, Director of Schools shared, “In response to this action, Trenton Special School District's Administration Team will soon formalize its plan for continuing instruction. Please check social media and the TSSD website in the coming days for next steps to support our students, parents, and community. We appreciate your support and patience as we work together through this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

"With this final closure of the school year, there are many questions that remain to be answered. The administration team of each building will soon be posting answers to the many open questions that you may have. We understand that a great many of them will be related to grades, high school events, and graduation. We are currently awaiting guidance from the State Department of Education concerning the logistics of closing schools. Later this week, as we learn more, we will post more information with the details you will need for your child to successfully close out this school year. 

We will continue to provide meals on Mondays and Wednesdays and our teachers will continue to contact our families each week. Our faculty and staff miss our students greatly and we are saddened by this announcement of the closure of the school year, but we will handle this adversity in a positive manner and make best-interest decisions for students, parents, staff, and Trenton". 

*************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

From Director of Schools Tim Haney:

Update: As stated in the post last week, please find here the promised information as to meal distribution and the continuation of educational services:

Meal distribution: TSSD will serve 'grab and go' meals on Monday's and Wednesday's, at TES, from 10:00 AM-12:00 Noon. We will also deliver to all 5 Trenton Housing Authority locations as well as Green Acres and Gibson Housing. Please understand, should the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the county rise, we may have to reconsider whether or not to continue the delivery aspect of this program.
Also, remember, the meals are offered to ALL children in the district- they just need to be present to receive it.

Educational services: We have added 2 more dates for parents and students to pick up materials. Those dates are Monday, April 6 and Monday, April 20, from 10:00 AM-6:00 PM, at each school. I would like to add here that we understand that you are working and raising a family in the middle of a public health crisis; therefore, if this work becomes overwhelming for your child, please know that we will work with him/her to fill any gaps when things return to normal. Encourage them, but we understand that, temporarily, academics may move down the list of priorities. Relax, and give us what you can as you can. Thanks.
