Thanks to generous sponsors throughout the school year, TJHS students have been able to shop at the school store monthly with their Tornado Tickets. Tornado Tickets are earned by the students for going above and beyond and following school expectations. Student Council members have taken ownership of working the school store and have done a fabulous job. One popular item in the store this month is book tokens for the school book machine. Thank you to Dexheimer Farms, CNB Bank & Trust, First National Bank in Taylorville, Kiwanis Club, Designed with Detail and TJHS Student Council for their donations this school year.

Congratulations to Mrs. Jean Ninmer on her second recognition as our teacher of the month/Red Apple recipient. Mrs. Ninmer is in her last year as our band/choir director at TJHS and we once again recognize her for her excellence in the field of education. She reiterates that teaching is her calling, "I use teaching to encourage others to join in a common goal and to treat others well." One of her many fond memories occurred when, "a struggling student finally played a musical passage beautifully. The whole band applauded spontaneously in a show of encouragement and support!" Thank you Mrs. Ninmer. Congratulations to our support staff member of the month at TJHS, Mrs. Tammy Reindl. Mrs. Reindl works collaboratively with our teaching staff to integrate technology with lessons in a meaningful and impactful manner. Her ability to find creative ways to enhance learning experiences at TJHS by making them as engaging as possible is her strength. Mrs. Reindl also helps with all of our testing windows, coordinates with student services, and splits her time to serve at Taylorville High School as well. One of her fondest memories occurred when, "I witnessed the intense reactions as students used the Oculus "VR" to go into space or explore the Titanic. One student even threw the goggles off because he was drifting in space." Thank you Mrs. Reindl.
