Shelby County Schools


A Message from the Principal



A warm welcome to all students, parents, and employees joining our Shrine School Family. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of each and every one of our children, and have the staff and resources to do so in an extraordinary manner. When you walk through the doors of Shrine School you will find a very caring and compassionate atmosphere, and can rest assured your child is in good hands.

Our school goals are aligned with the district's10-year strategic plan--Destination 2025--which lists early literacy as a top priority. Shrine School developed its own literacy inititative in 2015-2016, and we will continue this year with even more resources and activities to benefit our students.

For the 2016-17 school year, our emphasis will be on:

"Working collaboratively to ensure every student achieves academically, socially, and emotionally."

When students, parents, staff, and community work together for a common goal, we are sure to achieve great results. As a team, we must strive to be creative problem-solvers, excellent communicators, and enthusiastic collaborators. In so doing we will build a foundation for continued success. I believe our superior staff can be counted on to do all that is necessary to ensure that Shrine School meets these challenges, and not only maintains the highest of standards, but exceeds those standards in every area.

We are proud of our Parent Support Group, which is very active in our school.  Dads, as well as moms, are invited to meetings and are encouraged to join committees and share new ideas. If you are interested in being a part of this important group, please call Charisma Shelton at 901-416-9171, or call the office at 901-416-2400.  There are many exciting programs and projects planned for our students and families, and we invite you to join us whenever you can!

I am both happy to be here and most proud to be able to serve your children and the community. Together we can make this the best year ever for Shrine School!
