Trimble County Middle School hosts Parent Night Thursday, Oct. 27, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. A meal consisting of barbecue on bun, chips, Cole slaw, baked beans and a baked cookie with tea or lemonade will be served free to all family members of TCMS students from 5:30 to 7 p.m..
“We want our parents to be able to come and visit with teachers on parent night without worrying about dinner, so TCMS will provide dinner for the family,” TCMS Principal Mike Genton said. “Please make sure you bring your child with you. It’s a great idea to have them with you during parent night, so you can get their input and the teachers to help get the clearest picture possible about how to make them successful.”
Genton said in an email that he has noticed that a number of TCMS students do not remember basic information about their family, such as addresses, phone numbers, mom’s or dad’s name, grandparent’s numbers, an emergency number, etc.
“I really encourage all of you to teach your child these basic things because if they do not have a cell phone they won’t be able to call you unless they know your phone number, your names, address, and names and numbers of relatives that may be helpful in case of emergency,” Genton said. “I’d also suggest teaching your child not to go with anyone they do not know under any circumstances. I know this sounds elementary,” Genton said. “I think children are never too old to be reminded of some basic safety rules.”
The principal said he continues to review these basics with his daughter who is in the sixth grade.
“Yes, she thinks it’s kind of juvenile, but I’d rather waste a little time and have her prepared for disaster and hope it never happens than for something bad to happen and her have nothing to fall back on,” he said. “TCMS is a great place for students, and we are proud of your children and their hard work and dedication this year. I look forward to visiting with each of you on Thursday night.”
