Thursday Letter: 1.31.2013



Dear Parents,


Friday, February 1st is a staff development day – there will be no school for students.


I’d like to thank all of the parents and community members who attended our Campus Park Meeting last Saturday. Our time was spent exemplifying the 4C’s of Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking. I would also like to thank Friends of Thorp as well as Urban Habitats for their commitment and hard work in this process.  The master plan UHC designed for the outside of our Campus Park is truly reflective of the innovation and commitment to learning that we demonstrate within our classrooms.  Please check the website to see the vision for the future at Thorp – and please let us know what you think.


There will be Saturday school this Saturday from 7:30AM to 8:30AM please do not be late.


Today is the last day of the second quarter. Please make sure to visit the CPS Parent Portal to check up on your child’s grades. There should be no surprises on report card distribution on February 6th. If you do not know how to check your child’s grade please search the Thorp website for “student grades.”


Parents, we are just under 50% for membership in our PTA. Please make sure to send $5.00 if you only have one child at Thorp, or $10.00 for a family membership. The first class to reach 100% receives a $50.00 gift card to spend on supplies for the classroom.
