As we celebrated Dr. Seuss birthday today, I was honored to join Houston Texans players, Houston Texans Cheerleaders, and Houston Independent School District’s Suoerintendent House as we all took part in Literacy Now’s #HoustonReadsDay.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Fox in Socks to Bruce Elementary School’s second graders.

On Oct. 3, 1961, our community came together to desegregate the Memphis City public school system through the Memphis 13.

Today, 60 years later at Bruce Elementary School, we celebrate their profound strength & courage as we honor the impact they've made on our community.

Special guests at today's event include Dwania Kyles, a member of the Memphis 13 & Civil Rights Advocate; Debra Northcross, Executive Director at SAEOPP; Rev. Dr. LaSimba Gray, Pastor Emeritus of New Sardis Baptist Church & Historical Consultant for City of Memphis; Daniel Kiel, Director of The Memphis 13 Documentary; SCS Board members Michelle R. McKissack and Athlea Greene; and SCS Superintendent Dr. Joris M. Ray.
We are nothing without community, and that is why it is so important for Curb Market to give back whenever we can. Thanks to the incredible generosity of Redeemer Memphis, we have been able to bring lunch to half a dozen neighborhood schools' staff, and today we had the honor to feed the wonderful staff at Bruce Elementary School. Go Bulldogs!

This morning we surprised some very deserving Bruce Elementary School teachers with teacher kits for Grizz Goes Back to School! These kits included different supplies such as PPE, paper, and more.✏️

There were so many important takeaways from our cityCURRENT virtual panel discussion last week, “A BIG Return on Principal Investments,” which focused on how collaboration is helping unlock the power of leadership to transform schools in Memphis and Shelby County and across our nation.

This event followed the release of a new report from The Wallace Foundation, titled “How Principals Affect Students and Schools." The researchers conclude: “It is difficult to envision an investment with a higher ceiling on its potential return than a successful effort to improve principal leadership.”

Jean Desravines | CEO, New Leaders
Dr. Jason Grissom | Professor, Vanderbilt University and co-author of “How Principals Affect Students and Schools”
