Good Afternoon, We have added a page to the TCJSHS website, specifically for scholarship information. Included in that is a website called Go Merry. It has multiple national scholarship opportunities, many of which have few applicants. Do not hesitate to apply for any scholarship! Seniors, I have added the local scholarship to the website as well. The deadline is April 1. I also came across a great opportunity that senior athletes may be interested in. Please see below, and I apologize but the application closes Friday. I just found it today. In particular, we wanted to highlight one big, high-quality scholarship, due this Friday, January 8 (in 4 days!): the Foot Locker Student-Athlete Scholarship, worth $20,000 and given to 20 students. The $20k scholarship is awarded to students who “demonstrate exceptional academic ability and strong leadership skills in sports, in their schools, and within their communities.” We haven’t seen as many applications as normal for this scholarship--which means a higher than usual chance of winning! As part of the application, students will need to write two essays and get one letter of recommendation (perhaps from you!), so share this opportunity with your students ASAP so they have time to get their applications together. https://www.trimble.kyschools.us/o/trimble-county-jr-sr-high/page/scholarship-information--117

Effective January 11, 2021, all state ATCs will reopen utilizing hybrid schedules, programs will continue an asynchronous virtual instructional platform for every course to ensure all students have access to coursework and receive instructional support, regardless of their instructional setting. The “Healthy at School” Flagship Guidance on Safety Expectations and Best Practices for Kentucky Schools (K-12) (revised December 7, 2020) will be adhered to in planning and implementing face-to-face instruction. Implementation of these mitigation strategies will be essential to ensuring the health and safety of all students and staff.

Attention Sophomores interested in attending The Craft Academy Craft Academy and Gatton Academy Class of 2023 admission deadline extended The Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics and The Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science announced on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020, their coordinated admissions deadlines will be extended from Feb. 1, 2021 to March 1, 2021. The programs are taking steps to support prospective students in applying for admissions to the academies despite the current pandemic. In addition to extending the deadline, these measures include offering special administrations of the ACT at the academies’ host campuses of Morehead State University (Craft Academy) and Western Kentucky University (Gatton Academy). Known as ACT OnCampus (formerly known as the ACT Residual Test), these special testing dates provide prospective students the opportunity to take the ACT exam outside of a national test administration and are less likely to be cancelled or rescheduled. For more information on registering for the ACT OnCampus, prospective students should email the Craft Academy at email@example.com or the Gatton Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Extending the admissions deadline allows prospective students more time to request letters of recommendation, request official transcripts, and complete required essays. It also gives prospective students who do not take the ACT OnCampus one last national ACT administration on Feb. 6. Note students may not take the ACT OnCampus and test on Feb. 6. Offering ACT OnCampus opportunities and extending the admissions deadline maintain the admissions standards of the Craft Academy and The Gatton Academy while addressing some of the barriers prospective students have faced in this unprecedented time. Both academies are looking forward to next fall with full residence halls and in-person classes.
For our students attending CCATC, concerning in-person classes tomorrow: CCATC will be following suit with some of our partner districts tomorrow, and all in-person classes will be moved to virtual learning. Students, please remember, if your teacher is holding a Google Meet you are required to attend. Also, don't forget that you are responsible for completing any and all work that is assigned. Everyone stay safe, and we'll see you soon!
