Shelby County Schools


Mr. Louis Padgett, III


I am taking this moment to say welcome to the 2017-18 school year.  Once again I move into a new school year, I am excited to see the children and to see so many parents during these first 2, days of school.  I am encouraged and want you to know that we do not start over at Northaven.  We simply resume the works and by the way, we work on grade level.  My guidance to the teachers has been that they start working with children on the first day with challenging work.  I directed the teachers to help the children but reminded them of the need to allow the children to learn to think by reading, locating information and searching for problems and solutions.

We are an 8:15 until 3:15, school.  Parents, expect to see student work on Tuesdays.   Once PowerSchool, the student grade book, is up and running you will be able to check grades there.  I want to remind you that it is important that children attend school all day every day.  

Remember no checkouts after 2:45pm.

I do hope you are getting the message that we will do a great amount of work at the level of grade in which your child attends.  We must get the children ready to show that they can think, solve tough challenges and dream.


We are the Stingers, and the faculty and staff believe that all children can learn and do so on a high level.  Expect challenging work and come to school to learn more about how we teach children.


Again, welcome and know that I expect all students to read, write and think on grade level.  Help our school by making sure your child or children have a consistent place to practice schoolwork at home, get them here on time and allow them to stay all day. Check out our school calendar for some important updates concerning school meetings and learning opportunities.  I am available to speak with you if necessary. Call and ask for me, or my Secretary, Mrs. Hailey at 416.2800 for appointments.  Mrs. Comeshia Williams is Professional Learning Coach, and Courtney Jolly is the Leader of our school’s Special Needs Department.


I want our school to be the best and together we can make it happen.


Join us as we learn.  Call me, Louis Padgett, if there are questions or any concerns.
