Parents I would like you to sign up for our contact form on-line. I would like to see if we can distribute our parental correspondence electronically. The contact form is available on the Thorp website: http://oathorpacademy.org or at http://tinyurl.com/Thorp-Parent-Email
After-school programs will begin on the first week of November. Paid after-school programs will begin the second week of October. Parents will be notified if they signed their child up.
During our open house I mentioned our focus on teaching 21st century skills. A great web resource for parents and students is the P21 Foundation at http://www.p21.org Our teachers are correlating their curriculum with the real-world skills necessary to help our students succeed.
Thank you for your unwavering support of Thorp Academy,
