Graduation at CHS Moved to the 4H Center on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 9AM

After reviewing the National Weather Service forecast for our region, the Tyrrell County Schools District will move graduation indoors, to the Tyrrell County 4H Center for Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 9am. TCS administrators made the decision to avoid severe weather predictions of rain for our area.

Tyrrell County 4H Center
100 N Clover Way, Columbia, NC 27925

We know that graduation is a huge milestone for our seniors, and this location and date change offers Tyrrell County Schools the best opportunity to provide this ceremony, while family and friends are already in town.

The ceremony will be streamed live on the TCS Youtube channel for those who may choose to watch from the comfort of their homes.

The district will offer shuttle buses from both parking areas at the 4 H Center to help you arrive on time for the occasion.

Only individuals with a ticket will be granted access or admittance inside the facility. Guests will need to be seated before 8:45 am, as the program will start promptly at 9:00am.

In accordance with NC Executive Order 215; as the facility is property of the State of North Carolina, COVID-19 protocols are required.

**Face Coverings are Required Indoors**

School Principals’ Day

School Principals' Day is celebrated on May 1st and we'd like to thank Mrs. Helms of Tyrrell Elementary, Mrs. Mathias of Columbia Middle, and Mr. Ziegler of Columbia High School - the educational leaders of Tyrrell County Schools.

Throughout the school year, these educators assume the commitment to lead our young people to a prosperous future. They support and guide quality teachers and staff, resulting in productive learning environments for our children. Whether they lead an elementary, middle, or high school, a principal shows leadership skills while being approachable. Many students see their principals as role models.

Principals guide academic success and set the tone for an entire school. In most settings, they are a visible leader, one the students and teachers see daily.

Teachers rely on principals to ensure the schools provide the necessary equipment and resources. They also rely on principals to counsel and discipline students when needed. A principal represents the school at community events and meets with superintendents and community members, too.

Join us in celebrating School Principals' Day by sharing your gratitude for our educational leaders, Mrs. Helms, Mrs. Mathias, and Mr. Ziegler. Tyrrell County Schools thanks you for your service and dedication to the students, teachers, staff, families, and stakeholders of Tyrrell County Schools!
