Dear Thorp Families,

As we approach our final days at Thorp Academy we have been reflecting on the wonderful time we have shared with you thru our mutual efforts to educate our/your children.

We wish to express our most sincere thank you for all your support both during school hours and outside of school in the numerous fundraising activities you have tirelessly worked to benefit our school.

We will miss all of you! You have made our years at Thorp the most rewarding experience any administrator could wish for. We wish all of you continued good health and all the best life has to offer.

Thank you again,
Kathleen Bandolik & Priscilla Barbier
