Dear Faculty and Staff:
We want to welcome each of you back for a new and exciting year at Daniel McLaughlin Therrell High School. This includes a special welcome to our new faculty members. We are honored to be associated with such a talented group of faculty, staff, and students. We are very fortunate to work in a profession that allows us the opportunity to inspire, and be inspired, on a daily basis. Educating D.M. Therrell High School students is a wonderful privilege and responsibility.
Our students have accepted our challenge to them to be cooperative yet competitive learners. We are preparing our Panthers to contend with the rigorous, high standards set across the nation. As Panther teachers, you have accepted the challenge to raise the expectations for our students as well as improving on the methods of teaching and assessing the individual accomplishments of the young people entrusted to our care.
Our administrators have accepted the challenge of dealing with each student fairly and making available to them the courses and choices necessary for becoming successful and productive citizens in this global, technological society.
We wish you the very best for a successful school year.
Ms. Shelly H. Powell
