Ask your child daily about his/her school day.

Check your child’s backpack and sign folder daily.

Place any money sent to school in an envelope labeled with your child’s name and what it is for (ex. Snack, Lunch, Field Trip, etc.)

During homework sessions, please allow your child to work as independently as possible while offering your support.

Read with your child daily.

Please feel free to call or write with any questions or concerns.  Good teacher/parent communication is essential for your child to have a successful year at school. 

 Mrs. Reed 

    This is my second year teaching 1st grade at Dixie Attendance Center. I recently graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor in Science Degree in Elementary Education. I also have an endorsement in Mathematics.

I have always had a heart for children and teaching them, and I can’t wait to see how this year turns out.


        I was born and raised in a small town south of Mobile, AL. I graduated from Bryant High School. I recently got married last June to Tyler Reed. We met three years ago on a mission trip to Vancouver, BC. We have been living in the Hattiesburg for the past four years. Tyler and I both love traveling and sporting events, so we can’t wait to support our Yellow Jackets!
