Greetings D.M. Therrell High School Students and Parents,
The administrative team, faculty and support personnel are happy to welcome you to Daniel McLaughlin Therrell High School. We anticipate an engaging year where we will collectively strive to foster an engaging environment. Our school houses the smartest students that are taught by the most capable teachers and stand by the belief of “Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day.” We will encourage and expect all students to have a productive 2016-2017 school year. We hope to assist you in making this upcoming year enjoyable both in academics and extra-curricular activities.
High expectations and accountability will be top priorities for all of us at Therrell High School. We must settle for nothing less than the BEST in OUR school! We will continue to focus on making our vision and mission the core of our daily work with children, teachers, and parents. We are creating a culture of college readiness and we will build shared understandings about what this means and ways parents and educators can work together to ensure that every D.M. Therrell student is prepared for the future.
We invite you to be an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTSA or supporting school events. Research clearly states that when parents participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.
Please be reminded that D.M. Therrell High School is a uniform school. Students are expected to adhere to the uniform policy at all times. Please support our effort to create a safe and positive learning environment by ensuring your child is in uniform every day.
Shelly H. Powell, Principal
