January 2017: Connect - Parent Partner Survey


PARTNERING WITH PARENTS SURVEY 
An essential part of our vision at Thomas Nelson is parent and community partnership. Every year we issue the Partnering with Parents Survey to provide important feedback from our parents. 

Click Here - Partnering with Parents Survey to share your voice. 

The purpose of this survey is: 

  1. To learn from you and determine how we can continue to grow as a school community in supporting parents. 
  2. Share the results in the February Edition of The General. 
  3. Allow TNHS staff LEADERs and General Hand Parent LEADERs to learn from the data and establish goals for the year ahead. 
Please take 3 to 4 minutes to complete this survey.

2016 Gratitude - Happy Holidays!

 2016 - WE ARE GRATEFUL
                                       

We have enjoyed a remarkable 2016 with students and parents across our TNHS Community! We want to celebrate some of the most memorable growth from the past year!

1. The Original Generals 
Our first ever four year graduating class! A truly remarkable group of young men and women that will continue to make the world a better place.

2. Ranking 7th (top 2%) in the State Academically
While we know the work we do at TNHS goes well beyond test scores, it is important to know that are our Generals continue to grow academically each year. Our student's performance continues to show that our student's believe in the power of hard work and focus on their future story success. 



3. Four Year House Structure 
Perhaps more important than anything we have achieved at TNHS, we made powerful transition to our four year house structure this year. This revised structure allows students, teachers, and parents to CONNECT, CARE, and CREATE in a more focused community structure over four years. Our student's and teacher's response has been a powerful reminder of why meaningful growth often requires meaningful change.
