Principal's Message

The staff at Thomson Elementary School welcomes you and your family to the 2018-2019 School Year!  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 necessary for the success of all of our students.  Learning is not an easy process! It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences.  Learning involves hard work by everyone, the teacher, the parent, the principal, but most importantly, the student.
 
At TES, we value and challenge each student and provide opportunities for success.  Instruction is based on the Georgia Standards of Excellence for reading, math, science, social studies, music, and Physical Education.  Our students’ success is the center of all we do!  We are developing the next generation!
Research and experience shows us that a parent’s/guardian’s 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.  Look for our quarterly newsletter, The Eagle Express, and visit our website for the most up-to-date information.  In addition, we are on Twitter and Facebook.  Your child’s teacher and our Parent Teacher Organization will also provide some excellent information. 
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 or sowellc@mcduffie.k12.ga.us.
 
Sincerely,
Caroline Sowell, Ed. S.
Principal
