We exist to educate students both academically and socially so that they become responsible citizens of our local and global community.

Thursday night was Senior Night at Joe Small Gymnasium as the Devildogs and Lady Devildogs hosted region rivals from Berea. Between the basketball games the senior winter sports athletes were recognized. In the girls' game the ladies had a playoff spot on the line. The game started off as a defensive struggle. The Lady Devildogs finally got on the scoreboard at the 4:30 mark in the first quarter. Berea would not score until the last three minutes of the quarter. The Lady Bulldogs took the lead late in the second quarter and led 19-17 at the half. The Lady Devildogs fought back and regained the lead late in the third quarter and went on to take a 48-44 win and lock up a playoff spot.
In the boys' game, the Devildogs did not have a playoff spot on the line but could play the role of spoiler since the Bulldogs needed a win to clinch first place in the region. A loss would drop them to third and prevent them from hosting a playoff game. The Devildogs took the lead early and led 13-9 at the end of the first quarter. They outscored Berea in the second quarter and led 29-22 at the half. Berea chipped away at the lead in the third quarter and trailed 50-46 going into the final quarter. Half way through the fourth quarter the Bulldogs took the lead and held on to win 72-66 giving them their first region championship in ten years.

Travelers Rest High Athletic Director and Physical Education Teacher Erin Keen has been recognized as Region 2 AAA Athletic Director of the Year by the South Carolina High School League.
Keen says one program that has been beneficial for TR High student athletes is Power Hour, an hour-long lunch period where students who need extra help can get tutoring. “Teachers can assign academic overtime if their students need extra help. Our coaches take advantage of this opportunity and encourage athletes to attend these sessions,” she said. Full Story at the GCS Website

Lindsay Baber, a first-year physical education teacher at Travelers Rest High School, said if she could do the first day of school over again, she would find a way to create more Wow! moments with her students.
"On the first day we introduced ourselves, covered the syllabus, lockers, routines, and things like that. I want to make the first day of school a time for students to get excited about being in PE. I want to create Wow! moments for them. We could incorporate ways for them to have input on day one about what they like and for us to get to know them a little," she said.

Congratulations to Ms. Ashley Gordon for receiving the Employee of the Month award for the month of January. The award is chosen by the School Improvement Council. Ms. Gordon, pictured above, received gift certificates from George Coleman Ford and Shortfield's.
Alive at 25 is an early intervention program developed by the National Safety Council to prevent traffic violations, collisions, and fatalities. It is a 4 ½ hour defensive driving course that addresses the dangers of speeding, failure to use seatbelts, using cell phones while driving, eating while driving, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and more. It focuses on the behaviors that young drivers exhibit behind the wheel, and allows the student to recognize the consequences of those actions. Completion of the program is required for any student that parks on campus.
