Brick Church Middle School hosted TCAP University on Thursday, March 31, and it was a huge hit! Approximately 200 parents of Brick Church students attended for an evening of fun, connection, and learning. The highlights of the evening included the Tennessee State University Cheerleaders greeting everyone who came, 92Q’s Kenny Smoov providing music, and visits from Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders, Nashville Sounds Mascot, Ozzie, the Vanderbilt Commodore, the TSU Tiger Belles, and representatives from the Nashville Storm minor league football team.
Also, parents connected with the inspiration of various local celebrities and dignitaries, including Ralph Thompson, MNPS Associate Superintendent of Student Services, Sgt. Anthony Carter, Commander of the MNPD North Precinct, Dana Lovelady, motivational speaker, Walter Hunt, Metro Councilman, Frank Harrison, Metro Councilman, and outstanding support from Sharon Dixon Gentry, MNPS School Board member.
But TCAP University was about more than just fun; it was also about learning. Parents learned about the TCAP test – what their children need to know, how they will be tested, and what tools the school is using to prepare students for the test.
TCAP University was developed in conjunction with MNPS and Alignment Nashville’s Parent University Communications Team to engage parents in the school and build connections between the community and the school. A special thank you to The Dirty Dozen, Women of Wisdom, MNPS’ Special Events coordinator, Verda Stewart, and Blue Bell Ice Cream for their contributions to TCAP University.
