THS takes the prize!

The Be Present! Prize Patrol stormed Tennessee High School today, the first school to win the Bristol Tennessee City Schools Be Present! Attendance Challenge!

Nearly 1,100 students assembled in Viking Hall for a celebration led by Prize Patrol personalities Roy G. Biv and Dude. The school was awarded a check for $100, a traveling attendance trophy, roses and a large bouquet of balloons! As students exited, all were given a “present” made possible by donations from numerous community partners.

During the ceremony, King University men’s volleyball player, Jonathon Wheaton. shared with students the important role attendance plays in his accomplishments as a student and an athlete. Wheaton, who holds the school record for the most blocks, is a two-time All-Conference player and four-year starter for the school. He will graduate in May with a degree in Securities and Intelligence.

Bristol Tennessee City Schools is placing an increased emphasis on attendance to educate parents and students about the important role attendance plays in helping students achieve their academic goals. One of Bristol’s seven brick-and-mortar schools will be recognized monthly for the largest percentage increase in attendance. The percentage increase of each school will be calculated by comparing the school’s attendance rate on the challenge day with the attendance rate on the same day of the previous year.
