• Message from the Principal


    Thank you for attending the BEST school in Richmond County!  Here the staff is committed to Making the Good GREAT.  Every day we will give our best to you, and we ask you to do the same.


    Here at Hornsby 4-8, we are dedicated to developing the whole child.  We will do this by enriching you socially and academically.  In the classroom, this will be accomplished through individualized instruction that is designed to meet your needs.  Socially, each of you are encouraged to participate in the “Pretty in Pearls” or “Distinguished Guys in Ties” programs.  The purpose of these two organizations is to promote self-respect, school pride and community service.  Wednesdays are set aside as participation days.


    Malcom X once said, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”  Today is where the rubber meets the road.  The decisions that you make each day will begin to lay the solid foundation of learning for tomorrow.


    My challenge to each of you is to plan your work and work your plan!  Be aware of your strengths and weaknesses.  Decide how you will improve areas where you struggle.  Pay attention to what matters!  Be ready to share your reading level and establish goals that will result in an overall improvement in your reading and other subject areas.


    All the best!


    Dr. Carletha Doyle, Principal
