The Alabama State Department of Education has proclaimed May 11-15 to be College & Career Declaration Week. In the spirit of this occasion, many of our seniors have taken part in an Instagram page, @thompsonseniors2020, which highlights photographs and plans for members of the THS Class of 2020. Miss Hannah Casey is the vision behind this page and she has worked tirelessly for several weeks to collect the information from so many of our seniors. Special thanks to Hannah for her amazing work and congratulations to the Thompson High School Class of 2020! We are proud of you all. @thompsonseniors2020

Members of the Thompson High School Class of 2020 are being recognized with a visual display on their Warrior Parkway campus. On a day previously slated for the annual “Parade of Graduates,” individual personalized signs honoring each senior in the 544 member graduating class were placed in front of the main school building. Signs were made possible by Alabaster City Schools and were positioned by members of the THS and ACS administration and staff. Administrators chose to have this display on campus because our students are united as a family and when everyone is together, it is much like home. This display will remain until Tuesday, May 19—the original graduation day for the senior class.

All seniors, their families, and community members are invited to drive along Warrior Parkway to view the display. School officials request adherence to social distancing practices should students leave their vehicles to make photographs.

Seniors will return to campus on Tuesday, May 19 to retrieve their signs, along with caps & gowns, diplomas, final transcripts, honor cords/medallions, and other senior documents. Details regarding this process will be communicated via email and through THS and ACS social media outlets.

Congrats to junior Emaline Morris for earning a PERFECT SCORE on the ACT!

Thompson High School Junior Achieves Top ACT Score

Emaline Sutton Morris, daughter of Zandra and James Morris and a junior at Thompson High School, earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36.

Fewer than half of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2019, only 4,879 out of nearly 1.8 million students who took the ACT earned a top composite score of 36.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. The score for ACT’s optional writing test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.

In a letter to the student recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Marten Roorda stated, “Your achievement on the ACT is significant and rare. Your exceptional scores will provide any college or university with ample evidence of your readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.”

The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam that measures what students have learned in school. Students who earn a 36 composite score have likely mastered all of the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in first-year college courses in the core subject areas.

ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the US.

Curbside grocery service available in Alabaster

In response to COVID-19, Gym Time in Alabaster has temporarily converted to an online grocery service that offers contact-free curbside pickup.

The market features many items such as fresh meats and produce, and also offers COVID-19 response items such as face masks, rubber gloves, and bleach.

Customers can go to the website at www.gymtime.fitness to browse products and place an order. The customer will pay through the secure online payment system and then receive an email receipt with the pickup instructions included. Once the customer pulls up outside, he/she will call the gym and a worker will bring the groceries to the car.

Gym Time owner Jon Fuller explains that he is taking extra precautions to ensure a contact-free service. “When we get shipments, no one has handled the food. Our food goes through less hands than it would at a grocery store. You also don’t have to worry about other shoppers picking up food and then putting it back.”

Gym members can receive a ten percent discount by entering the code “GTMEM49”.

The store is open every Monday-Friday 9am-7pm, Saturday 10am-5pm, and Sunday 12pm-5pm.

Gym Time is located at 244 1st Street SW, Alabaster, AL 35007 and can be contacted by phone at 205-624-4040. Gym Time is a 15,000 square foot fitness center in the Alabaster Shopping Center.

On Thursday, April 9 at 8:20 P.M., Thompson High School and Alabaster City Schools proudly participated in the Be The Light (#BeTheLight) movement that is spreading across the nation, from state to state and school to school. We turned on all of our campus and stadium lights to show support of our 544 amazing seniors, the Class of 2020. We are sharing this video of our Be The Light efforts from last Thursday, however the video also reflects our mindset during this time of uncertainty. Our campus is currently closed for safety and health measures being taken to combat COVID-19. While our distance learning program is going strong, we dearly miss the presence of our students, our families, and our community, who have always been the true light of our school. This video is sincerely dedicated to all of our students, families, and community.

“Drive-Up” Learning: Student Filtered WiFi

Alabaster City Schools is continuing to provide avenues for student success in distance learning. Over the past week, Alabaster City Schools distributed over 400 Chromebooks to students in grades 3-12. In order to facilitate student learning, we are also proud to announce that starting Thursday, April 9, 2020, at 5:00 PM, all Alabaster City Schools campuses and the Central Office/Alabaster City Schools Empowering Students (ACES) building will have outdoor wireless access points installed. The district-managed WiFi network will be accessible through the parking lots located at different points on each campus. Each parking lot will be monitored through security cameras. Students will be able to utilize the “Drive-Up” service from the safety of their cars. The WiFi network will use the district’s content filtering and security measures that continue to address compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). The Student Code of Conduct and Technology Acceptable Use Policy will apply. During this COVID-19 pandemic, families should practice social distancing guidelines while using the resource and adhere to any city-wide curfew restrictions.

Creek View Elementary School, Meadow View Elementary School, Thompson Intermediate School, and Thompson Middle School have the wireless access points installed at the front of each school. The access points at Thompson High School are located in the back of the school. The access point at ACES is located in the back parking lot near the former Thompson Intermediate School basketball courts, and the Central Office access point is located at the parking lot near the railroad track.

Once students arrive at a “Drive-Up” learning location, ACS-named wireless networks will appear as they do when students are on campus. Students with district-provided Chromebooks will automatically join the ACS_Chrome wireless network. Students using a personal device must connect to the ACS_Student network by using their student username and password. Those who do not remember their student usernames and/or passwords should contact their teacher.

Important: Security measures such as content filtering, device monitoring, and user reporting are still in place. For additional information, please go to www.acsboe.org/DriveUpLearning.

THS TV is still working hard to prepare Senior Video 2020. Senior Video is the Video Yearbook for the Senior Class. It highlights the students throughout the years from baby pictures to elementary, middle and high school. It also contains interviews with members of the senior class, videos from throughout the year, and advice from teachers. We will still plan to conduct interviews with seniors and faculty members via teleconferencing, FaceTime, etc.

We have added a few new categories to the video in hopes of making the best of the situation:
-First Day of HomeSchool: Please submit photos of your first day of HomeSchool next Monday, April 6.
-Spring Break Quarantine Style: Please submit any photos from Spring Break that you may have taken while you were at home.
-Social Distancing: Photos of fun activities you may have participated in during this time away from school. (Even FaceTime calls and Zoom meetings with friends could be a fun addition to this category.)
-College Declaration Day: A photo of you in the t-shirt of the college or career you will be headed toward after graduation

The next deadline for SENIOR VIDEO is for SENIOR YEAR, SPRING BREAK, and FIRST DAY OF HOMESCHOOL pictures. We will postpone Prom photos until we receive word about the rescheduling of Prom.
Deadline: Please submit GROUP PHOTOS from Senior Year and any Spring Break Quarantine Style photos and First Day of HomeSchool photos by April 17. (You may submit multiple photos for each of these.) Email all photos to [email protected] with the subject SENIOR YEAR 2020: Student Name, SPRING BREAK 2020: Student Name, FIRST DAY 2020: Student Name.

Seniors: Please be on the lookout for our Who's Who Part 2 survey, which will be coming to your student email soon.
If you have submitted photos to be scanned, and they have not been returned, please email the THS TV intern account so that we can get those prepared to send back to you this summer.

Thank you for your support.

Dear THS Students,

We appreciate your continued patience with us as we work through this unprecedented event. Your health and safety continues to be our main priority. During this extended time away from school, we want to make sure you are protecting yourself and others. Please make sure that you are following the CDC guidelines found here https://www.cdc.gov/ on the CDC website. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Make sure you are cleaning your hands and cleaning the surfaces around that you touch daily. Avoid close contact, large crowds, and make sure you cover your cough and sneezes. During this time the school facilities will remain closed.

Everyone handles stress and anxiety differently. During times of social distancing, it is helpful to use other forms of communication to stay connected to your friends and family. We all want to stay up to date on the news, however it is good practice to take breaks from media and information. It is also wise to make sure you are taking care of your body by keeping a routine, getting rest, exercise and eating balanced meals. Rest assured that your teachers, administrators and counselors are working a plan to support all students academically when we return. If you are experiencing stress and anxiety during this time, please reach out to others to talk about your concerns.

The Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990, is a 24/7, 365-days-a-year national hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster. This toll-free, multilingual, and confidential crisis support service is available to all residents in the United States.

Central Alabama Wellness, 205-651-0077, has open access on Mondays and Thursdays from 8:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M. You would need to call the phone number above to simply provide demographic information. They take patients on a first-come, first-serve basis on Mondays and Thursdays.

Thanks and Warrior Strong,

It’s nice to see that you’re teaching young students about the TV and film industry! I found a movie recently that perfectly displays many cinematic elements, making it great to learn from. It’s called Empathy, Inc., and it is a sci-fi thriller about extreme virtual reality. The film is set in a completely monochromatic color scheme, allowing for elements like sound and camera angles to shine through. I thought I was a great way to learn more about film, it’s on Amazon if you’d like to watch!
