On February 25th, Thorp will be hosting a “Be the Match” Bone Marrow Drive – in honor of Emma Gomez c/o 2013.  All adults, ages 18-44 are encouraged to be part of the drive. Please let your family members know – Thorp will be hosting the drive from 2:00PM to 6:00PM

Parents mark your calendars for Taste of Thorp – March 1st from 7 -10pm at Biagio’s.  Please purchase your tickets by visiting the Friends of Thorp website: I am looking forward to spending a great night with Thorp’s parents and staff – I hope to see you there!


Parents of after-school students; starting next week we will dismiss our students from the East Lot Doors. This will allow you to park on Warwick as well Grace, and hopefully reduce some of our congestion during after-school dismissal.
