The end of this school year brings with it many celebrations. This year, we congratulate Ms. Chapman, Mrs. Clark, Ms. McDonald, Ms. Ogden, Mrs. Polmateer, Mrs. Popovich, Mrs. Tripp and Ms. Umpherson on their retirements. This group, all combined, represents 227 years of experience in Education! THS will miss you but we know you will enjoy the next stage of life.
On Friday June 8, 28 THS students stopped eating!! For 24 hours... They consumed only water and freezies and they survived! While doing this, they raised $1114 for our Tiger Cat Cafe. This past year, the Cafe served over 11, 000 lunches. This number does not include the snacks and breakfasts that were also served. So, this financial support is GREATLY needed and appreciated.
A big thank you is extended to Ms. Cotnam, Ms. Penson, Ms. Mallory, Ms. Hanley, Mr. Shillington, Custodians Rob, Pat and Ryan and all the students who participated for making this a fantastic experience.
Our 10th annual Quinte Humane Society Fundraiser raised over $400 this year. Several students recently delivered the donation to the Society and volunteered for two hours while they were there. Mrs. Mallory's period 2 class brought in the most money. Well done, THS!
Congratulations to our very own Ms. Penson who was recently awarded the prestigious District 29 Excellence in Teaching Award. This award recognizes an individual who is involved in OSSTF, uses innovative teaching methods, engages students by enhancing their learning potential, integrates community diversity into the classroom, and demonstrates a commitment to lifelong learning. Ms. Penson was nominated by and chosen from among her colleagues. Our THS community is very proud of her!
