We will be having our last Food Assistance drive by for the year! Please drive through our car rider loop and pick up a box of food on June 2nd 5pm-7pm. You must show your student's TRHS ID and will be given 1 box per household.
PTSA Volunteer Information
The Travelers Rest High School PTSA is looking for volunteers for the 2022-2023 school year. The high school PTSA is not a huge commitment and does not require much time. We meet once a month and our only fundraiser is our school store that sells snacks and drinks at lunch time. We need board members and school store volunteers. Without volunteer leaders and volunteers, PTSA cannot function and the school will no longer benefit from all that our PTSA does to support the students, families, and staff. We need many volunteers in order to keep our PTSA running. If you are interested please contact Tanya Bishop 864-414-9353
Food Assistance Information
Any TRHS family in need of food assistance is welcomed to pick up a box of food in the Guidance Office from now until the end of the school year! Due to limited supply, 1 box per household will be given out. Please reach out to your counselor or feel free to stop by at the end of the day for a box! If food boxes need to be delivered please let us know! Thank you.

Yearbook Day 2022 at TRHS
(5/27/2022 / TRHS Webmaster)
Yearbook Day 2022 was held on Friday morning starting with the seniors watching the senior slideshow. This year's yearbook was dedicated to Mr. Rick Veazey who is retiring after 20 years of teaching at TRHS including the last 15 as Webmaster. The 2022 edition of The Traveler was then given out to those that purchased yearbooks. The theme this year is "Connected." Seniors concluded their morning with brunch and time to sign yearbooks, take photos at a photo wall, and celebrate together. Graduation will be on Wednesday, June 1st at 8am in Timmons Arena on the Furman campus.
After lunch the underclassmen were able to pick up their yearbooks and enjoy the afternoon with a variety of activities including basketball, an inflatable slide, hanging out and signing yearbooks, and buying food from a food truck or concession stand. In another popular event, Mrs. Batson, Mr. Hawkins, and Mr. Laye took turns on a dunking booth. Underclassmen will take their exams next week after the Memorial Day weekend.
