To help raise money for leukemia and lymphoma, Taylor Tomsic shaves his head. Student Council sponsored the activity, and students voted for the teachers by placing money in a jar. Tomsic, Pat Haxton, and Jeff Hafliger volunteered for this activity, but  Tomsic won with $75 from students.



TCHS blood drive

Looking like he is enjoying the experience, Joey Fry donates blood at the Student Council sponsored blood drive.

By Paige Post
The TCHS Red Cross Blood Drive was once again successful. The school had a total of 43 donations, which consisted of students and other community members. Two people were considered a power red donor, which means they donated two units of blood.

In addition to student donors, several students helped make the drive successful. Liz Deines’s FACS classes made sandwiches for the donors while Student Council found volunteers for various jobs. A few worked at the admissions table, and others escorted donors to the canteen.

One student, Madison Hafliger commented on her experience.

“I was happy to be able to help people in need”

TCHS would like to thank all of the community members who donated.

On October 31, students at TCHS had a fun time on Halloween by participating in contests sponsored by FFA and Student Council. Lori Dietz helped organize the event.

Students and faculty were invited to dress-up for a costume contest. The costumes were creative and spanned from witches to Pikachu. The costume contest winners were Dylan Johnson, who dressed up as his look-alike--Principal Shea Rothchild--and Rothchild, who dressed as Dylan Johnson. Runners-up were Shaelyn Cleland, who dressed up as famous painter Bob Ross, and English teacher Nan Brown, who came as Ursula from The Little Mermaid.

In addition to the costume contest, students could submit decorated pumpkins and masks.  These were displayed in the commons area, and students voted for their favorites.  Madison Hafliger won for her Mask, and Dylan Johnson won for his Pumpkin.

Students were also invited to take a survey to find out their favorite Halloween movie, their favorite costume, their favorite Halloween activity, and their favorite candy.

The top movies were Hocus Pocus and Halloween Town. Surprisingly, most students responded that they liked witches’ costumes, and, of course, the favorite activity was getting candy. The top-rated candy students want in their Halloween sacks: Kit Kats and Skittles.

TCHS Golden Eagles celebrated Homecoming week by showing their pride from September 10-September 14.

On Monday, students and staff showed their spirit for their favorite teams including Broncos, Chiefs, Stealers, Kansas University, Kansas State, Fort Hays, and TCHS. In the morning, students were dismissed from class to decorate their sections of the school. The freshmen went with “Talon the Titans;” the sophomores went with expressing themselves by decorating it with a variety of colors; the juniors went with the theme of “Trash the Titans;" and the seniors went with a Pac-Man theme of “Beat the Titans.”

On Tuesday, every one dressed in all black for the day’s theme. Everyone dressed in all black ranging from shirts, pants, headbands, and one student even wore his dress shoes to try to win. On Wednesday, everyone searched their wardrobe to find their favorite color.

Thursday was a busy day.  The theme was Classy Day and

students tried to be just a bit more dressed up than usual.  The evening was filled with Street Painting for the seniors, and then Powder Puff football was sponsored by FCCLA.  Finally, the evening concluded with the annual bonfire and pep rally.

Friday was another big day.  The students and staff decked themselves in the school’s colors and revved up their spirit by participating in some afternoon activities such as face painting, jousting, fence decorating, and washers.  The students then proceeded downtown for the annual Homecoming pep rally.

Just before the kick-off, the Homecoming Ceremony commenced with the candidates of Adrianne Carr and Nathaniel Werth, Jenna Howard and Keagan Shubert, Adrian Dietz and Willy Barney, and Helen Giefer and Dallas Schneider arriving to the field in convertibles.  The crowd waited expectantly for the winners before hearing the names of the 2018 King and Queen, Keagan Shubert and Helen Giefer.

Student Council would like to thank the Booster Club, Fire Department, the LEC,  those who donated and drove convertibles, and  all those who helped to make this year’s Homecoming celebrations a success.
