October 17-21, 2022, is #NationalSchoolBusSafetyWeek! 🚍
Our school bus drivers are kind, caring, encouraging, and supportive; they go above and beyond to ensure our students get to where they're going safely.
Thank a bus driver today! Driving a school bus is more than a job - it's an adventure!
It’s officially Fall Break, Choctaws! We will see you back on Monday, October 10, 2022. Enjoy your break.
UPDATE:We have worked closely with law enforcement. They were able to determine that the threat had nothing to do with our school system. We appreciate everyone's patience and cooperation.
The Dyer County School System takes the safety and security of students very seriously and are committed to keeping them safe while receiving an education at school. This morning we received information pertaining to a perceived threat. Dyer County Schools implemented our security procedures to keep students safe. We will be adding extra safety precautions to our day. The Dyer County Sheriff's Department is continuing to investigate any issues. We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day.
Don’t forget! School will not be in session today due to Fair Day inservice! We hope our students have the best day at the Dyer County Fair.

Fifth Consolidated is proud to recognize and congratulate Ava Prince for making a perfect score on the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program
(TCAP) - Math portion!
"As a school, we are so proud of the accomplishments of our students on the TNReady assessment. We are honored to recognize Ava Prince, from Mrs. Magen Purvis' 4th-grade class, for earning a perfect score on the TCAP Math Assessment. Ava consistently works hard and is truly dedicated to succeeding academically, and this honor further proves her commitment. The partnership between our highly motivated student body and our compassionate faculty and staff continues to result in academic excellence at Fifth Consolidated." - Mrs. Lou Ann Peery, Principal.
The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) is designed to assess true student understanding, not just basic memorization and test-taking skills. It is a way to assess what our students know and what we can do to help them succeed in the future.
"I love school," stated Ava Prince, 5th-grade student at FCES. "I think one of the reasons I have excelled in math is because it is my favorite subject. I am just so happy that I got this award. I would like to thank the teachers and the school."
"We are always proud of Ava's accomplishments, but we are extremely proud of this academic achievement. We are grateful for the nurturing staff at Fifth Consolidated Elementary School." - Jarrod and Nikki Prince, Ava Prince's parents.
