Welcome back to a new school year! I hope everyone had a great summer! My name is Tabatha Jones and this is my first year as the school Social Worker for East Sunflower and Gentry High School. My role is to help students do well in school by addressing their social and emotional needs. I will be here to guide you in expressing your part as a leader in your own child’s future. It is my promise to you to work with you so that we can help students be successful.
