Dear Parents,


This is a reminder that there will be no school for students on Friday, November 1st. This is a School Improvement Day for faculty and staff. We will not have Saturday School for this Saturday, November 2nd. There will be no school for students on Monday, November 11th in honor of Veterans Day. Report Card Pickup Day will be on Tuesday, November 12th. This is a day of non-attendance for the students. Conference times will be from 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m., with a break from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please arrange your conference time in advance with your child’s teacher. Vision and Hearing Screenings will be given to Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 5th Grade, 8th Grade, Special Education Students, and students who are new to CPS from November 7th through November 15th.  The next scheduled Local School Council (LSC) meeting will be on Wednesday, November 6th at 6:15 p.m. Family Volunteer Day will be on Saturday, November 9th, starting at 9:00 a.m. Thorp is fortunate to be partnering with Huron Consulting once again! They have generously volunteered to help paint our school fence, but they need the support and helping hands of Thorp families to get the job done! Please use the Volunteerspot link to let us know if you are available to help at: Our new library and media center is now open. Please stop by and check it out. Finally, our 2013 high school information is now available. Please visit our website at for details.  Parents remember to set your clocks back one hour on Saturday night. Have a happy and safe Halloween!


Thank you.
