Principal's Corner

As the school year closes...

It is hard to believe that the end of the school year has arrived! It seems like we were just welcoming them back to school, time really flies when you are having fun learning at school! 

As I reflect on the previous school year it makes me swell with pride and love for my little tigers. So many proud moments I have observed students social and emotional growth, academic success and more importantly love for their fellow Shelby Tigers family members.  When I heard a first grader tell a new friend that just enrolled that was breaking a school rule- "Oh we don't do that at Thomas Read, we are family." My eyes grew misty and I nearly burst with admiration!

To our third graders that are moving on to New Era, remember that once a little tiger- always a little tiger. We will miss you but feel confident that you will represent Thomas Read well at New Era. 

Have a fantastic summer and see you in the fall!
