- __Joshua Dixon Has Fairy Tale Reunion March 22, 2017
Second grade students at Joshua Dixon Elementary School became a cast of characters for their Fairy Tale Reunion! As part of a culminating activity, the students have been studying how to determine if a story is a fairy tale and identifying traits of the various characters.
At the Fairy Tale Reunion, students dressed as their favorite character and created a reunion name badge displaying their character’s name and traits. They presented their projects to the student body. Students spent the remainder of the day completing Fairy Tale based STEM activities.

Have you ever experienced the sinking feeling of losing something of great value? Have you hoped against hope that an honest person would be the one to find it?
A recent shopper to the Ross Park Mall can answer yes to both question.
He/she left their activated debit card in an ATM machine, but the story has a happy ending. Jaylen Westbrook, Howland, and Marcus Lowe, Brookfield, are students enrolled in the Marketing program at the TCTC. They were visiting the mall as part of program field trip. They found the debit card and returned it to a bank that was located nearby.
The bank manager was impressed with their honesty. He told their instructor, Michelle Plakosh, she should be proud to have such great young people in her class. Upon hearing the names of the students, Plakosh was not surprised. She said both of the students are gentlemen who are a credit to their parents.
Character is defined as who we are when no one’s looking. Jaylen Westbrook and Marcus Lowe have this virtue in abundance. Students of their caliber make the TCTC a better place.
