What is “Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam? Expanded POLYSTYRENE (EPS) foam is a petroleum-based plastic product typically used for cheap, disposable food ware (cups, plates, ‘clamshells’, etc) and packing products. EPS foam is made by adding a blowing agent to a material called polystyrene, a petroleum based plastic.
Most polystyrene products are made for single use, yet persist in the environment for hundreds or thousands of years. Just like other plastics, when polystyrene products enter the waterways from urban runoff or litter, they break down into small, non-biodegradable parts. These small bits of polystyrene are accidentally ingested by marine life, filling their stomachs with a false sense of satiation and leaching dangerous chemicals into their bodies. Polystyrene emits harmful chemicals such as Styrene and Benzene into the food that has been packaged in such containers. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services lists polystyrene as a substance “reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen” and doctors “urge caution” when using the chemical styrene. The chemical can leach into food from containers holding hot foods or beverages. According to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 100% of Americans have styrene in their bodies.
Compostable products are a simple alternative to polystyrene. Compostable products are non-toxic, plant-based and eco-friendly alternatives to EPS foam. The resources and energy to make 1 EPS foam container could make 3 compostable containers. To reduce waste, bring your own cup or take out container when eating out. Ask your favorite restaurant to stop using EPS foam and switch to compostable containers.
Yearbooks are on sale for $65.00. To purchase a yearbook, please bring cash or a check made out to TRHS to Mrs. Sutton in room C014.
On October 19th all 10th graders will take the PSAT/NMSQT free of charge. Any 11th grader that would like to take the PSAT needs to sign up and pay $15 in the front office by October 5th. Money can be turned in before school and during power hour.

Duke University will be visiting TR. All interested juniors and seniors need to sign up in guidance by Monday, September 26th.

Students who are chosen as Teaching Fellows receive up to $24,000 for college. The deadline to submit applications is December 1.

The Devildogs hosted the Southside Tigers on Friday night as the conclusion of Homecoming Week. The Devildogs got off to a good start with a touchdown by Deonte Byrd in the first quarter to lead 6-0. The defense forced the Tigers to punt on each of their possessions in the first quarter and Byrd picked up his second score with under a minute left in the first quarter.
The Tigers did not pick up a first down until the second quarter but neither team was able to mount a sustained drive in the quarter and the halftime score remained 12-0 in favor of the Devildogs. Southside threatened to score a couple of times in the third quarter but an interception by James Burnside stopped one drive and the Devildog defense stopped another drive at the two yard line.
Southside finally scored early in the final quarter to cut the Devildog lead to 12-6. Southside recovered a fumble in TR territory later in the quarter but the Devildog defense held again. Southside had one last chance when the Devildogs failed to convert on a 4th down play with 28 seconds left in the game. The Devildog defense again held off the Tigers and sealed the 12-6 win. The homecoming win was the first for the Devildogs in this stadium. The last homecoming victory came in 2005 as the Devildogs defeated Blue Ridge in the last homecoming game in the old stadium. That night also was the first Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
Before the game, Kendall Silvers and Bubba Philpot were named Homecoming Queen and King. Princesses were Olivia Huskey, Alliah Woodard, Peyton Nease, and Kelsey White-Kennedy. The Devildogs will travel to Greer on September 30th for their first region game of the season.

The Devildog varsity football team hosted Carolina with junior quarterback Joel Burgess leading the Devildogs. The Devildogs scored with 4:20 left in the first quarter as Urijah Tucker took it in for the touchdown. The Devildogs missed the two point attempt and led 6-0. Tucker scored again with under a minute left in the first quarter after the Devildogs recovered a Carolina fumble giving them a 13-0 lead. Deonte Byrd gave Travelers Rest a 19-0 lead in the second quarter.
During halftime the TR Youth Association football players and cheerleaders were recognized and the Golden Regiment performed the first movement of the 2016 show, "The Dark Side."
Neither team mounted much of a threat in the third quarter. The Devildogs finally put together a drive leading to a touchdown with 57 seconds left to take a 26-0 lead. Carolina answered with a quick scoring drive capped off by a long run giving them their only score of the game. The Devildogs scored with Urijah Tucker picking up his third TD of the night in the final quarter to give Travelers Rest a 33-6 lead. The Devildogs recovered a fumbled snap on a punt attempt on the next Carolina drive giving them the ball on the 15. A 28 yard field goal gave the Devildogs a 36-6 lead. Carolina had a nice kickoff return but were unable to pick up a first down and the Devildogs ran out the clock to pick up their first win of the season.
The Devildogs will be off next week and will host Southside on September 23rd. The 2016 Homecoming Ceremony will be held before the game.

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.
