Dear Trimble County School Families:

On behalf of the Trimble Co. Board of Education and the staff of Trimble County Schools, it is my pleasure to say “Welcome Back!” I trust that your time away has been enjoyable and you hopefully, had some time to recharge for the school year ahead.  Starting the school year is always an exciting event whether you are a student, parent or staff member. 

As an educational leader, I’m still excited (and even a little nervous) at the beginning of each school year. I love to see our students and staff return from summer break. I’m eager for the fresh start and life lessons that each school year brings. I am also very sensitive to the fact that some students are apprehensive about the start of school.  

At the start of a new school year, it’s “OK” to be nervous or excited or a mixture of both – no matter who you are. At Trimble County Schools, our commitment to students and families is to provide a safe learning environment that not only provides a high quality education, but also inspires a love for learning and challenges students to think critically and problem solve.  Our staff will work extra hard to make the transition into this school year as smooth as possible for our students, and minimize those nervous tendencies.

Students, we cannot wait to welcome you back into our schools tomorrow! You are the reason why we come to work each day. You are incredible, and we are so excited to learn and grow together this year.  We are blessed to have an impressive group of educators who are passionate about your learning, your safety and your school experience. They truly exemplify our district’s mission….. Every Student, Every Day

Parents, “thank you” for entrusting us with your children each day. We do not take that responsibility lightly, and we look forward to engaging their minds and cultivating their distinctive gifts to find the spark that will propel their learning. We need and welcome your partnership in their learning because after all, you were their first teachers. Parents play an essential role in our school system and we encourage you be actively involved this school year! 

Best wishes for a productive school year filled with many opportunities. Working together, we will inspire success and lifelong learning in Trimble County Schools. We look forward to seeing many of you at future district events and around our community.  Raider Pride is everywhere and I wish you a positive and healthy 2022-23 school year. #weareTC  

Sincerely,    

Jessica Wilcoxson

Superintendent, Trimble County Schools
