The Tipton High School Boys Soccer team has been given a great opportunity for a fundraiser with Tipton Ford.  The Ford Drive 4ur School fundraiser is free and easy!  All you have to do is come test drive a brand new Ford in front of Tipton High School on Saturday, April 14 between 10 am and 2 pm.  For every test drive around the “block,” Ford will give the boys soccer team $20.  The more that come, the better!!!   Oh, and the first 100 people to come test drive get a free fountain drink at South Pole.  There is absolutely no pressure to buy, all you have to do is take a little drive! 

Thank you so much from the Boys Soccer team players!

April 11 - Planetarium Show

Myths--Legends-Flyer-2018b
Join us on Wednesday, April 11 at 6:00 PM for the Planetarium Show - Greek and Roman Myths and Legends.

Most ancient cultures saw pictures in the stars of the night sky. Observing the heavens, they saw the lion, the bull, and the scorpion in the stars. The constellations as we know them today are undoubtedly very different from those first few. By far, though, we owe the greatest debt to the mythology of the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Mythology, of course, influenced the naming of many objects in the night sky, not just the constellations. The planets all bear names from Roman mythology which reflect
their characteristics.

Come hear and learn about some of these legends and how they have become immortalized in the night sky. Also, learn about their relationship with today’s Zodiac.

To reserve your seat, please register at: https://goo.gl/forms/SGfwPXN3p5oI1Or72 or call the school's office at 675-2147.  Presentations to groups can also be arranged by contacting the school.

March 18-24 is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana. From the National Weather Service, the goal of Severe Weather Preparedness Week is to better educate people about the hazards of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes and to help everyone be prepared when severe weather occurs.

Tipton schools will join others throughout the state as the NWS conducts a statewide test of communication systems (state-wide tornado drill) on Tuesday, March 20 at 10:15 AM.

Parents are urged to talk with their children about what to do in the event of severe weather while at home.  The NWS has more information in their Preparedness Week brochure.  They also have available a kid's activity booklet that can be downloaded by clicking here.

This is not an area for practical jokes or offhanded comments.

School Walkout

Tipton-Blue-Devil
As you may be aware, after the school shooting in Fla, groups have been calling for nationwide student “walkouts.” These are suggested to happen in the next couple months. The first date is this coming Wednesday, which is one month after the shootings in Fla. Another is March 24th and the other is April 20th, which is the anniversary of the Columbine shootings. We want to give our students the opportunity to participate in one of these activities, if they so desire. Therefore, we will set aside this Wed. Mar. 14 for that observance. We will make an announcement on that date to dismiss students, to a designated area. We will allot 20 minutes for the “walkout.” This will give students a couple minutes to exit and re-enter the building and still observe the 17 minutes in remembrance of the 17 students who lost their lives in the most recent shooting. If they choose not to participate, they simply stay in class. This time will be given as study/reading time. Mr. Stillson and Mr. Rushton will be outside, and the police will be in the general area to make sure students are safe. This is the only time we will excuse them from the building to observe a “walkout” type activity. If they leave the school or grounds on any other dates, they would be subject to disciplinary action. The goal of this activity is to allow students the opportunity to use their voice in a positive and productive manner.

Kindness at THS

Recently students in an English class took it upon themselves to put post-it notes with positive messages on all of the student lockers.  This was unprompted and shows the caring type of students we have here.  Thank you students for showing everyone it is ok to be kind.

Tipton Athletes are the Best

123456LBD
Congratulations to the Lady Blue Devils Basketball Team on their Sectional Championship this past Saturday. They will play the second game (around noon) at the Eastern Howard Regional this Saturday, February 10.

We can take pride in this team not only on winning games but how they play their games, as do all Tipton athletes. One of the officials for Saturday's game posted the following report with IHSSA:

"I wanted to commend the players and coaches from both Eastern (Greentown) and Tipton High Schools. In the Sectional final ALL of the players exhibited excellent sportsmanship. They helped their opponents up from the floor when one went down. I also noted short, brief conversations of apology if there were an accident bump as well as smiles at one another during the course of the game. The coaches should also be recognized as they both represented their respective schools and themselves as professionals. If they had a question, it was asked in a respectful manner. The dialogue between the coaches and my crew was refreshing. These gentlemen coached hard and exhibited good sportsmanship. My sincere thanks to both teams."

Block 4 Scheduling Meeting Update

all
On Monday, January 22, a meeting was held at Tipton High School to share information about the high school schedule.  The purpose of the meeting was to share with parents the pros and cons of using a Block 4 schedule and how it compares with a more traditional schedule.  

THS currently is using a schedule known as the Block 4 schedule.  Many other area schools use a 7-period traditional schedule.  THS has been using the Block 4 for the past 20 years. There are many who feel the Block 4 schedule is being used successfully at THS; there are others who think a more traditional schedule would be more favorable.

For those who could not attend, the PowerPoint presentation is provided along with a brief summary of some of the pros and cons around the Block 4 schedule currently used at THS.

A survey will be distributed later in January to get the opinions of parents, staff, and students on the issue of the school’s schedule. A link to the survey (using a Google Form) will be sent by email through School Messenger.   THIS SURVEY WILL CLOSE WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31.

School Delays and Closing Guidelines

School-Closing-Info_thumb-1
We have begun the second semester of the school year with winter weather in full force.  As we all know, Indiana weather can be very unpredictable.  During the next couple of months, you will be hearing of school delays or closings and may how those decisions are made. It is rarely an easy decision and one that involves talking with a number of local agencies. TCSC has developed guidelines to refer to when making decisions about school delays and cancelations. {School Delay and Closing Guidelines}

The best way for parents to keep informed about school closing and delays is to make sure your information is up-to-date in the school’s Harmony system.  The automated calling system, School Messenger,  uses this information to contact you by phone, email, and/or text.  You can also get the most up-to-date information on Twitter (@TiptonSuperin, @TiptonSchools), Facebook, Tipton Community School Corporation’s website, or any of the local media outlets. Decisions are made as early as possible and usually before 6:00 a.m.

With our transportation routes and bus stops, it will be very important to make sure our children have warm coats, gloves, hats, and scarves as they walk to and from the bus stop and while they wait for their bus. Inclement weather will most assuredly result in our buses being delayed by drivers navigating wet, snowy, slushy, or icy roadways. If you have sidewalks in your neighborhood, please encourage your neighbors to keep their walks cleared of snow and ice during these winter months. In addition, please remind your children that while they may see vehicles approaching, the drivers may not see them. Being aware of their surroundings is even more important when the weather is poor.

Finally, we would like to have your children in school every day that we are in session. However, we will always respect your decision as a parent when it comes to the safety of your child(ren). Together, we will continue to provide great opportunities for our children and prepare them for their future successes.
