“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!”

Heather Cartwright, Rankin Principal, TPSD Administrator of the year

The Tupelo Public School District has fostered my love of teaching, leading, and serving. Not only am I fortunate enough to work in a district that challenges me daily to be my best for my teachers and students, but I trust this district with my most important assets, my two children! It is truly an honor to be a part of something as special as the Tupelo Public School district.

And I'm proud to be a part of something that can be so special."

When I think of Tupelo Public Schools, the first think that comes to mind is a wonderful environment to learn and grow. Not only are there great teachers and staff, but there are also lots of opportunities to make life long friends.TPSD is a tradition in my family. My brothers and I have grown up in TPSD. This is what the TPSD means to me.

The spelling bee is a big deal to me because only one kid each year can win and it's very special. I like Tupelo schools because all my friends are here. I have a lot of good memories in the Tupelo schools. So, the Tupelo Public School District and the spelling bee mean a lot to me.
