Friday Letter: 5/24/2013



Dear Parents:


As we approach the warmer weather we are beginning to see some trends that need to be addressed:


Busing- Some students are not getting on the bus at dismissal. If we do not have a note from a parent we will be issueing in-school suspensions to those students for leaving school without permission.


Our students are wearing shorts and tank tops that are inappropriate for school. Students wearing inappropriate attire will be given a school shirt or sweat pants to wear for the day. Please make sure that shorts are knee length and that all shirts have sleeves.


Parents, please do not double park when dropping off your child in the mornings. If you are using Austin Ave. please do not park in front of the teacher parking lot entrance.


Dates to remember:

-Fine Arts night – May 28th from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The Thorp Choir as well as Smiling Strings students will be performing.


-The Thorp Student Council / PTA Talent Show (We will be holding evening performances from 7:00PM to 8:00PM)


-New Parent Orientation, June 5th from 6:30PM to 7:30PM. We will be welcoming our new parents as well as informing them on what makes Thorp a great place to learn!


-Our Awards Assembly is on June 7th. (Grade 3-5, 9:00AM – 10:15AM Grades 6-8, 10:15AM – 11:30AM)


Have a restful and relaxing Memorial Day Weekend. If you are an active or former member of our armed forces – thank you for your service and dedication to our country.
