TRUSSVILLE — Teachers at Hewitt-Trussville Middle School are encouraged to be “Student Supporters” by attending extracurricular events such as band concerts, choir concerts and athletic events.
The program was initiated several years ago under the belief that students need to see their teachers at these events, and teachers need to see students in areas other than the classroom.
“It is a great way to build relationships all the way around with teachers, students and parents,” said Principal Lisa Berry.
Once teachers attend five extracurricular events, they receive a “Student Supporter” T-shirt.
