Carson Jones, TMS Student

Some of the most important spelling bee teachers to me were Mrs. Underwood, Mrs. Simmons, and especially Mrs. Freitag. They all mean a lot to me since they all helped me and encouraged me along the way. I'm glad I can represent TPSD and Lee County. I hope to win for them both in the State spelling bee.

Wesley & Lilah Kate McCullough

The city of Tupelo and TPSD will always hold a special place in my heart. It's where I learned to read and write, learned to make friends, how to persevere through academics and athletics, and was allowed the opportunity to have fun along the way. It is a blessing to know my daughters will get that same experience in the years to come. Go Wave!

"I love Tupelo Schools! The teachers are nice and all my classes are my favorite. I love the cafeteria's pizza and cheeseburgers. My brother and sister go to school here too."

“TPSD is where I found my calling and purpose in life. It is a place where I have had the privilege of having so many meaningful relationships and experiences that have shaped who I am today. Also a place that has loved and nurtured my own two children. I cannot imagine where I would be today without the students and staff of TPSD and for that I am forever grateful.”

"I am pawsitive that TPSD is the most pawsome school! The teachers and students are rebarkable. I am barking it from the wooftops, TPSD is the best!"

“In my 14 years at TPSD, it’s been so much more than just a school. It is the place I made my first friends, found new passions for athletics and academics, and connected with the most amazing people and mentors. TPSD has been a pillar that has helped shape me into the person I am today and the person I will be in the future!”
