Welcome back packets for fully registered students are in the mail!
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our Thompson students and families! We are excited for the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year!
We would like to invite you to the following back-to-school events:
Please join us for Curiosity Day on Monday, August 20th from 3 to 4 p.m. This event will give you and your child the opportunity to see their new classroom and meet some of their future classmates.
For students in seventh through eighth grades, Palombi Curiosity Day will be on Tuesday, August 21st from 3 to 4 p.m. Much like at Thompson, this opportunity allows the students to see their new classrooms and meet some of their future classmates.
Early Childhood and Kindergarten Orientation
Kindergarten Orientation, where teachers will meet with the parents/guardians to discuss procedures and routines, is scheduled for Monday, August 20th from 6 to 7 p.m. Teachers will discuss academics and kindergarten expectations.
The Curriculum Nights for first through sixth grades are as follows:
Tuesday, August 28th 1st-3rd Grade Curriculum Night from 6 to 7 p.m.
Wednesday, August 29th 4th-6th Grade Curriculum Night from 6 to 7 p.m.
Barring inclement weather, on August 22nd and throughout the first few weeks of school, staff members will be outside in the morning. Teachers will display signs with their names. Students should find their teachers and line up where indicated. Staff members will be able to assist any child who does not know his/her teacher’s name or cannot find their teacher. Students will be directed to the gym if it is raining. During the first school day, teachers will take their classes on building tours and will show students where to line up each morning.
We ask that you have your children ride the bus on August 22nd both to and from school as opposed to being picked up and dropped off by a parent. This will help your child identify his/her bus, bus color/number, bus stop, and other children who ride the same bus. Please make sure your child knows the street location of his/her bus stop and the color/number of his/her bus.
