Ready to Learn

Posted 8/9/17

Ready for the best year yet!

Mississippi public school teachers are welcoming students back to class, excited, focused, and ready to "raise the bar!" Our amazing teachers and administrators have worked hard through the summer, preparing to lead our children through another great year of growing and learning.

Back to school msg

Local businesses and churches are stepping up, donating backpacks, supplies, and back-to-school treats. Whole communities are in the game, supporting our public schools and the nearly 500,000 students they serve!

A tip for parents getting ready for the new school year: these Mississippi Department of Education resources will give your students an extra edge as they reach for excellence (see grade-level guides, pre-k through 8th).

We are ALL in for our PUBLIC schools - where every child has a place and where Mississippi's future is bright! Wishing you a terrific school year.
