We "CAN" and we DID make a difference!
TES Shares" food drive collected almost 3,000 food items and paper products which will be donated to Anderson Interfaith Ministries. Thank you to all the students, parents, and staff who helped to make this a great donation at an important time of the year.
Turkey Trot was a Big Hit!
The Townville Turkey Trot went off without a hitch on November 9. Runners from all over the area got up early to "trot" around Townville for a good cause. Participants were required to bring canned goods for AIM (Anderson Interfaith Ministries), and the school is continuing the canned food drive for the next couple of weeks. Thanks to Coach Laven and his team of volunteers who made everything run smoothly, and thanks to everyone who came out to walk and run! Click here to see a slideshow from the event.
Early Dismissal Schedule for November 14th

Elementary schools will dismiss at 1:00 and middle and high schools will dismiss at 2:00. All afterschool activities have been cancelled to include GoalPost and athletic practices.
The first RMS Archery Team
Last week, tryouts for the Riverside Middle School Archery Team were held in the gym. Several different factors were used in determining the team; participation, behavior, shooting form, coachable attitude, overall score, average score and round improvement. We would like to congratulate the following students that have qualified for the RMS Archery Team; 6th graders Ana Durham, Olivia Ladines, Samantha Pierce, Porter McLeod and Jentry Whitfield, 7th graders Chloe Burdette, Abbey Gillespie, Carli Hines, Taylor Hines, Zoe Long, Chloe Standridge, Jae Cox, Nick Degroot, Quinton Gilstrap and Dylan Pierce; 8th graders Hayley Crawford, Alexis Johnston, Alli Miller, Victoria Richards and Kevin Reed.
Fuel Up to Play!
At a recent assembly, Coach Laven invited students to play a while! The students had a milk chugging contest and a cheerio stacking contest. The exercise routine in which everyone participated was a blast, too! Coach Laven, in conjunction with Mrs. Kilgore, from food services, encouraged the children to make good choices when eating, and to make sure to exercise or play for one hour daily. All of their efforts stem from a grant awarded this year, "Fuel Up to Play 60." Way to go, Coach, and way to go team TES!
