It is with great pride and pleasure that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! The start of a new school year provides us each with an opportunity to redefine ourselves and to adjust our focus to the things that we arepassionate about. As the principal of TBHS, I am passionate about the educational process and the education every student receives here at TBHS; I’m passionate about building positive relationships with all students; I’m passionate about helping TBHS to become the premier high school in the state of Missouri. What are you passionate about?
Our mission is to empower all students with the knowledge and skills to maximize their full potential in a changing technological society. This Student/Parent Handbook, developed by administrators, teachers, parents and students, lists Troy Buchanan High School’s core beliefs, policies and procedures, as well as the wide array of resources to help you accomplish the lofty goals of this mission. It serves as a guide or road map for all members of the school community. I encourage you to familiarize yourself with its contents and know your rights and responsibilities as a Troy Buchanan High School student. I also ask that you share it with your parents. As you begin this year I want you to know that you are attending an excellent academic institution, rich in tradition. It is staffed with a highly qualified faculty that is committed to providing you with the most complete learning experience possible. Listen attentively to your teachers and learn from them. I encourage you to follow “The Trojan Way” by being respectful, responsible, safe and a learner. As you go forth into this school year, remember, you will get out of it what you put into it. Best wishes for a productive and enjoyable year.
Proud To Be R3,
Jerry Raines Ed.D.
