Principal's Message

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to Thomson Elementary School! The staff at Thomson Elementary School is here to serve our students and their families.  We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student.  We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is essential to the success of all our students.  Learning is not an easy process!  It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences.  Learning involves hard work by everyone-- teachers, parents, administrators, but most importantly, students.
 
At TES, we value and challenge each student as we provide opportunities for success.  Instruction is based on the Georgia Standards of Excellence for reading, math, science, social studies, music, and P.E.  Our students' success is at the center of all we do!  We are preparing our students for a bright future!
 
Research and experience show us that parental involvement in a child's education is directly related to his/her success in school.  To maximize your child's success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:
 
Ensure that your child is at school on time each day
Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events
Monitor your child's homework daily
Expect and support positive behavior at school
Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily
   
In addition, there will be numerous opportunities in which we welcome you to become involved this school year.  Please view the calendar on our website and look for newsletters, flyers, etc. about upcoming events. You can also visit our website for the most up-to-date information.  Your child's teacher will also provide information through their websites.
 
I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you in advance for your support and commitment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (706) 986-4700.
 
Sincerely,
Mrs. Sherrika Brown
