POSTPONEMENT - THS BASKETBALL - Dec. 8th
Troy High School Basketball @ Troy vs. Hiawatha on December 8, 2020 has been postponed. Hiawatha's Board of Education voted last night to keep Hiawatha in remote learning and therefore no activities or games can take place . A reschedule date at this time has not been decided. We will update that when a decision has been made.
If your student is on virtual learning and you need assistance, please feel free to reach out to our technology department with any questions.
Troy High and Middle School’s third “Kindness Pays” assembly of the school year took place on Tuesday, November 24, sending the students to Thanksgiving break on a positive note. The “Kindness Pays” program asks designated teachers to nominate students who have committed acts of integrity, kindness, and humility during the month. These students’ names are then drawn from a hat, and the winning name receives a gift certificate. All of the names will then go into another drawing at the end of the year with other months’ nominees.
This month, the good deeds for which the students were chosen included helping injured students carry their school supplies, general politeness to office staff, and admitting when one has made a mistake and then making an effort to improve.
The sponsor for November’s “Kindness Pays” program was D.C. Drug, and Troy High/Middle School appreciates the support.

The only exception is provided for athletes during the time they are competing and for officials during active play.
