Senior students are not the only people whose last school year has been affected by this virus. Retiring teachers have lost out on the chance to finish their careers with students in front of them, interacting with students and teaching them. Not seeing that "I got it" moment for the last time. They are missing out on their last lunch conversations with their peers and joking with those they have had lunch with for a very long time. They were not offered the chance to say goodbye to their students and for students to say goodbye to them. People do not get into teaching for the money. People get into teaching for the students and wanting to be a small part of their journey as they become adults. For some students, they are a big part of that journey. We have one teacher retiring this year. Mrs Kelly Shires has taught at Thompsonville for 19 years. I know this is not the way that she wanted to end her career, but I also want her to know the way her career ended has no bearing on the positive impact that she has had on her students and coworkers. I know that a piece of this school will go when she leaves. Good Luck in Retirement Mrs. Shires. Please come back to see us. You will always have a home here.
8th graders we will announce on social media when your diplomas will be ready to pick up. We are waiting on the covers to get here.
Report Cards will be sent home the week of June 1. Honor Roll and High Honor Roll will also be published on our social media during the week of June 1.
