Dads, as well as moms, are invited to meetings and are encouraged to join committees and share new ideas. Parents interested in joining this important group should call Charisma Shelton, school counselor, at 901-416-9171 or the main office at 901-416-2400. There are many exciting programs and projects planned for students and families, and parents are invited to join in whenever possible.
