Message from Administration

Welcome Panthers!

The start of school is always an exciting time for both students and parents.  We hope our handbook will be helpful. You will find information about the student arrival and dismissal schedules, attendance information, information on curriculum and much more!  It is our hope that our handbook will assist you by providing answers to frequently asked questions. It is our goal to promote school-home-community partnerships that will increase parental involvement and participation in promoting the social, emotional, and academic growth of children. Therefore, our handbook includes information about opportunities for participation in our parent organizations: the TSE Advisory Council (SAC), the TSE Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO) and our TSE Volunteer Program. We encourage parents to get involved through the organizations noted above as well as to visit and participate in Parent-Teacher Conferences, school programs and events. A few other helpful sources of information are Facebook, Tommy Smith Elementary School; Twitter, @TommySmithElem; and our school website,  We welcome you to our Tommy Smith Elementary School family and invite you to become involved in your child’s educational experiences today!

Go Panthers!
